The best response to an open records request so far in 2009

Robert Forrey of the River Vices blog — sounds like a gadfly already! — asked Jim Kalb, mayor of Portsmouth, Ohio, for documents relating to a contract between the city and the Portsmouth Kiwanis Club for a playground.

Mayor Jim dropped the blogger/records requester an email letting him know the records were ready to be picked up, and apprising him of a few other things as well, such as:

“I think that you’re a worthless piece of s**t and I wouldn’t p**s on you if you were on fire You’re a poor, lonely, jealous old man with aspirations of being a writer….You write your lies and uneducated opinions on people and issues from behind the safety of your slobber stained keyboard….pitiful, broke-down, lizard-looking thing….Get a life old man. On second thought, don’t bother With little respect for you, Mayor James D. Kalb.”

Update:

Hello, Gawkers. And thanks to Randy Ludlow of the Columbus Dispatch for reporting the story, linked above.
