In breaking news, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, foretelling six more weeks of winter. Punxsutawney Phil’s predictions are more often wrong than right. But still right more often than False Prophet Ronald Weinland, whose ability to prophesy anything correctly is zero.
One year ago today was Ron the Con’s first full day in Federal Correctional Institution, Terre Haute, having voluntarily reported there during the prior day (Feb 1, 2013). In the year since then, Ron’s little religious empire has been crumbling. He lost his evangelist Terry Wrozek, who had been with him since he left WCG following “the apostasy”. He lost his senior elder Ralph Dowd who had been with him nearly as long. Many others have left PKG, including several who testified at his criminal trial. Even his own son-in-law, brother-in-law, sister, and mother have left.
Ron has many Groundhog Days in front of him, with his release expected for Feb 17, 2016. Will Ron finally get it right before being released? I doubt it, rather expecting him to attempt to rebuild his empire from whatever ruins await when he leaves prison to return to his home on the golf course.
