Silva case boggles author’s mind

Author Eric Schlosser (“Fast Food Nation”) visits Stockton from time to time, interested in everything, and asking questions as curious, investigative authors do. At lunch yesterday, I told Schlosser about former Mayor Anthony Silva’s indictment on felony embezzlement charges. After lunch, I sent him the hard news story.

Schlosser’s reaction:

“That’s insane … if you were writing a novel, your editor would say tone it down, that’s too implausible—I mean, stealing from the boys’ and girls’ club…”

Allegedly stealing. But, yeah.
