I am embarrassed, (but honest), to admit I voted for this dollar menu Berger. (If they too were honest, I think many would admit the same about their 2008 presidential vote, but fortunately I did not make that mistake!)
That said, A) Berger is likely telling the truth about his inability to get in to see a doctor. NO ONE can get in to see a doctor without weeks of waiting, and the E.R. costs are 100% preventative. This however does not offer a valid excuse for missing a meeting. B) He should have notified someone that he would not be attending the meeting. To ignore that is dereliction of duty. C) It's quite obvious this man has mental issues and is not fit to serve. He deserves our sympathy, but not our tolerance.
But above all: WWAY, you have lowered your status to tabloid journalism. Are readers of scandal sheets your target audience? When earlier reporting on his current, supposed residence, it was no less than stalking. PLEASE don't give this sick man the attention he craves. Pride yourself on producing real news; prove to everyone that you are better than "The Weekly World," or "The Globe."
