Brilliant Artist Gerald Skrlin Captures the Imagination as Dyster Captured Council

SEP 22, 2015


After Paul "landslide" Dyster captured a tissue thin primary win over Councilman Glenn Choolokian the political onlookers asked one another "Oh, what shall, for heaven's sake, a third term of Paul Dyster portend for the city of Niagara Falls?" One person answered "He shall heal the sick and make the blind see!" And a second proclaimed "He will single handedly lift our city from its knees to heights of glory known never before!" To this burning question of what Paul Dyster shall do in his third term (if he does indeed succeed in dispatching John Accardo) the renown local cartoonist, Skrlin, answers pictorially "Paul Dyster will do in his third term exactly what he has done for the past two terms: lead the city council majority of Touma, Walker and Grandinetti from a long leash, guiding them to do his taxpayer abusing, bidding." The council trio, lashed together as so many zombies, hounds, or prisoners, are reduced, in this grimly ironic graphic, to a level not of "team members" producing positive teamwork, but rather mindless elected officials mindlessly doing the work of their captor and handler: the Honorable Paul A. Dyster.
