The geese are flying in unison, Part II:
Remember the run-up to the DNC when NY was cool, calm and collected
while frumpy old Boston was fretting? The media geese took off
on that oh-so-cute story angle, including a local media goose doing the best bash-the-hometown
imitation of them all. ... Guess what? It turns out NY is NOT
so cool, calm and collected. Guess what? The geese are now scrambling to get into new formation.
... Maybe things like terrorism
and traffic gridlock honestly bother people -- and it has nothing to do with curses, better restaurants, catchier ads, Yankee baseball versus Yankee breeding etc. ... I do hope the RNC/NY folks learn from the DNC/Boston event: Take all precautions necessary, but don’t scare the hell out of people so much that it ends up hurting more than it helps.
The James Michael Curley of African Americans: Marion Barry
just won’t go away. But when you think of it, the old rogue’s political career is a sign of slow, agonizing progress, sort of like another old rogue’s political career.
The latest big Celts trade/blow up: Not impressed.
Again. ... I am impressed, though, with Doc Rivers making a call on Marcus
and using his charm on Gary Payton.
