The Gateway (Mr. Big Stuff Edition)
It‘s pre-primary rush time, as I attempt before the election to do at least three pieces I’ve outlined in my mind, as well as at least one more Gateway, and still see my parents before they go back to Florida.
As such, I probably won’t get to a 10th Anniversary piece on 9/11, a topic near and dear to me, which I touched upon emotionally the other day.
However, in recognition of this momentous occasion, I will once again link a piece I wrote in 2008.
Can anyone please tell me who the target group is for this robo-call?
This spot may actually be dumber than the Trump robo-call (and was up for a shorter time than Spitzer's talk show). However, since it's an independent expenditure, it can’t even be blamed on the Weprin campaign--maybe stupidity is just contagious.

I won't go through all the errors in this deep-throating of Jesus G by the usually reliable Colby Hamilton, because I am in the process of a longer piece, but the revisionist history that Tish James' election to the Council on the WFP line was an insurgency is preposterous.
The incumbent, James Davis, was shot and killed. He was running unopposed, the deadline to file had passed, and his vacancy committee, which consisted of his mother, gave the Dem line to his psycho brother Geoffrey.
I'm elated that Gail Collins is back, but can she please write just one column that doesn't mention that Mitt Romney once strapped his dog to the roof of his car? Debating With the Stars www.nytimes.com

Never as important as Dave Bartholomew (the great N'awlins producer of the 50s) or Allen Toussaint (the great N'awlins producer of the 60s and thereafter), Wardell Q was the guy you got when Toussaint was busy, but that was usually far better than good enuf. “Mr. Big Stuff,” indeed.
