Special Opinion to the Mirror by Tim Donovan
No Joke, out of town business writer Joe Coccarro moved to Cape Charles and then decided to use the local scene as his cheap way to write his first novelletta. It’s called “Woo Woo: A Cape Charles Novel” and it has as much to do with Cape Charles as Cape Canaveral. It’s a cheap media method to make a name for himself, on the name of this proud town…I’m not sure its giving him the desired results.
Woo Woo in the online free dictionary is “derogatory slang based on or involving irrational superstition”. He used this as a tag line for Cape Charles; gee thanks Mr. Coccarro.
But worse still is the way he used Cape Charles in describing women. Evidently he hasn’t read the news that objectifying women by people in the media is not tolerated. His book using Cape Charles’ scene is wall-to-wall with trashy descriptions of women’s anatomy; describing women by their lips, their hips and their —-s. It sounds like Coccarro’s got a serious issue with size or dominance or both.
This out of town and out of luck former newspaper writer who moved here sought fame on the name of Cape Charles. This is already in paperback, but spend the money instead on something important like a mop or a dust pan. I’d wait until Coccarro puts this out on Facebook.
