City Employee of the Month -
Dono Nuthin, head of the East Orange Department of Stupidity,
has received an award as public employee of the month for doing
absolutely nothing about putting up calendars of city events in a
timely fashion, and making a new Vendor's license that doesn't look as if it was
made by a third grader and which has been on the city web site
since before Mayor Bowser was in office.
Remember when they USED to be called CELL PHONES?
The mayor usually poses with anyone and everyone when a photo
opportunity arises, but we could only find this photo of Dono
Nuthin peeking out from behind the mayor waving his trophy during
one of the mayor's many "pat yourself on the back"
public forums earlier this year.
L-R: Mayor Lester Taylor, Dono Nuthin of the Department of
At one of his frequent public forums given earlier this year,
Mayor Taylor is oblivious of the presence of his
Department of Stupidity Director, Dono Nuthin, who waves his
recently acquired trophy behind the mayor's back.
We have no idea why he was given a trophy. Perhaps he found it in
a garbage can.
No matter, Dono Nuthin is happy and proud to be a part of the
"transparency and accountability" the mayor is always
talking about. Especially the transparency part. He failed
accountability in second grade. Dono Nuthin joins the parade of
public employees who will be given awards by the city, like this
one given for "Customer Service of the Quarter"
recently and posted proudly on BOTH the city's facebook pages (OLD
The problem is, whomever posted it seems to know nothing more
about the photo than what is printed in the box below it.

Congratulating Jean Charles and Angela Qualls for their
service and commitment.
Perhaps the person posting to the city's facebook pages works
in the Department of Stupidity under director Dono Nuthin. That
would explain it. I'm only guessing that the two people named are
shown in the center of the photo, but no one seems to know who
the other two lurkers are or what they have to do with it. As for
how they earned this prestigeous announcement (they don't seem to
have been given trophies), we are left to guess. Perhaps it's for
being spiffier dressers than their bosses. Whatever. No one at
city hall seems concerned about reporting events like this with
any accuracy, even though I attempted to explain how it should be
done - and had my posts erased several times: "When you post
a photo, you generally name all the people from Left to Right,
not just two at random. Then you write a WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE
sentence so we know what they did to deserve congratulations, and
what exactly was that service and commitment mentioned? Is that
like the mayor's constant refrain about his 'transparency and
accountability' for which he never gives specific examples of
either?" I guess they didn't like my attitude.
