Wyoming County’s recorder of deeds would not e-mail records to the Wilkes-Barre Citizens’ Voice, so the paper suggested they put the records on a flash drive.
“My office staff, including myself, are not trained or familiar with
loading information on a ‘flash drive’ as suggested by the requester,” wrote recorder of deeds Dennis Montross in denying the request, according to this editorial about the situation in The Daily Review of Towanda.
The editorial zings Montross pretty well — which seems right, doesn’t it? After all, this is 2010.
Have you ever heard a better excuse than that? If so, leave it in the comments.
