MORE NOE HUMOR

According to a report in The Dispatch of Columbus, OH, "Statehouse
reporters received an envelope last week containing a coin-shaped
piece of chocolate wrapped in gold foil to mark the 53-count
indictment of former Maumee coin dealer Thomas W. Noe.

Stamped on one side was "NOE" with "The indictment" and "53 counts."
The other side read, "The inducement — 53 pieces of silver," and
had the names of Gov. Bob Taft, Secretary of State J. Kenneth
Blackwell, Auditor Betty D. Montgomery and Attorney General Jim
Petro, all Republicans.

A letter that accompanied the coin said it was "minted by the Ohio
Penal Industry workshops, politicians division, and by badly injured
workers who were given the jobs when the bureau of Workers’
Compensation could no longer fund their benefits."
