With “Tony Ortega:  Three Strikes and You’re Out,”  we more or less complete our debunking of the Village Voice’s running fraud on Bruce McMahan.  There’s more yet to come — but in a word or two, we think by now we have shown that the whole thing was a fabrication, ineptly abetted by the woefully ambitious  Ortega, who let his greed get in the way of whatever judgment he may once have had.

Having now lied for the third time in print, it’s probably time to say sayonara to Tony, and move on to other scamsters.  Yet a few thoughts linger on, which we will most certainly visit with undiluted intensity, until his raggedy ass has been run out of town by people more powerful than we are.
