There will always be people who defend crooks, such as yourself Gram. Maybe it's your own past that makes you feel the need to take the side of evil. But Gram... I mean,... really... the jig is up. Laura Lasky has fled into the wind. Her husband dumped her and her co-workers were deceived and betrayed. Lausa Lasky's fraud has been very publicly exposed. Solace SF has folded. Time to let GO. Laura Lasky is a rotten egg. Maybe you skimmed but did not read the article published in the SF Weekly. Put on your glasses and read it again. If Laura Lasky is still your friend, I suggest you get new friends. The ship has sank on Solace SF and you are the only one trying to throw this con woman a life-line. You probably think OJ is innocent too and the Easter Bunny is real. Lasky's "charity" organization is DEAD... OVER... KAPUT. Laura Lasky will no longer be able to prey on the needy and pad her pockets. Hurray! Now, all let's move on and let the FBI and IRS sort out the rest.
