If part of the subconscious motivation for Quintin Cross's seemingly perverse and self-destructive behavior is a desire for attention, he's getting it. The Register-Star this morning devotes two articles to him. The first covers his appearance in court yesterday before Judge Jonathan Nichols: "Cross pleads not guilty to burglary." The second seeks comment from Mayor William Hallenbeck, Common Council president Don Moore, Ed Cross, and Linda Mussmann and dredges up some old statements about Cross made by Rick Scalera, who was mayor during most of Cross's career as an alderman in Hudson: "It's very hard on this community."
On his blog, Sam Pratt has a post about Cross's lawyer, New York City defense attorney Susan Tipograph: "Cross's counsel."
