Boycott the Rose Festival. The Rose Festival in Tyler is a perennial homecoming parade for Tyler's elite, wealthy, snobbish nobility.

Tyler, the county seat of Smith County, is the corruption capital of America. Judge Jack Skeen Jr.(Smith County) has habitually conspired with the District Attorney (Matt Bingham) to deprive defendants of their civil rights in order to get convictions. Skeen has been involved in such legal debacles as the Kerry Max Cook TrialS.(Yes, that's trials with an 's') and the so-called "Mineola Swingers' Club" case that was based on fantasy and cost the taxpayers of Smith County, Texas hundreds of thousands of dollars. Smith County's court system abuses its citizens on a regular basis by summoning four times as many jurors as needed every day, making most of them sit in their dingy courthouse, sending them home hours later for nothing. This costs local businesses, like mine, millions of dollars in lost wages/productivity per year. Smith County Texas neglects its infrastructure and citizens but is very generous to its district courts and sycophant lawyers who feed off of the system. All thanks to County Judge Joel Baker and his cronies Jeff Warr and Carey Nix on the Commissioners' Court.

The Rose Festival is NOT a charity event. However, they send out mailers every year soliciting donations. The mailers exaggerate the attendance and local economic impact of the event.

The local paper, the Tyler Morning Telegraph, is a joke. When it is not printing useless garbage about the Rose Festival, it provides free PR for local politicians. The family that owns the paper has bought the Rose Festival 'throne' for one of their own kids this year, so get ready for endless, excruciating, drivel about the Festival and how the queen's attendants bow and how expensive and elaborate their dresses are. The TeleGraph is a big part of the problem in Tyler, in that it keeps Smith County's citizens in the dark about what really goes on with local politicians.

If you want some insight into how Smith County's legal system works, read Chasing Justice (Kerry Max Cook) and Smith County Justice by David Ellsworth.
Boycott the Rose Festival. Send the TeleCrap a message and tell them why.
