Things I Know

  • In the second inning, I’m thinking Mike Pelfry may have been the wrong choice as the Mets’ starter in the first official game at the new Citi Field.  Tom Seaver was the only choice to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.  I’m glad Seaver was able to throw it to Mike Piazza without bouncing it.   He bounced his ceremonial last pitch at Shea.

  • As a culture, we over-use the word “Hero,” but just for the record, Richard Phillips:  Hero!

  • If we are in fact waiting, as David Gregory said on NBC Sunday morning, for official confirmation of the arrival of the “first dog” at the White House, then many of us who do not have them now should get lives.

  • It’s hard, but don;t pay attention to rumors.  What actually happened is I got reappointed to the job I already had and to a second job as well.  So I have more work to do and I like that.  I now have a reserved parking space too.  In order to get to it, I turn left when leave the building at night.  I used to turn right.  Believe it or not, it’s a change I’m having a hard time getting used to.

  • I’m older than the median for the US population.  That’s no surprise; half of us are.  So, if you’re walking in the same area I am, chances are you’re fast enough to keep up, agile enough to get out of the way, or both.  Pedestrians in Manhattan used to be good at walking in crowds and not getting in the way.  They aren’t anymore.

  • Rule #1:  The boss is always right.

  • Rule #2:  If the boss is wrong, refer to Rule #1.

  • In my experience, Rule #2 is immutable.

  • Change happens.  So does entropy.

  • I don’t think there’s a person in the USA who thinks the baby sitter killed Caylee Anthony.  And since Casey Anthony doesn’t have any money, all I can see that the baby sitter is accomplishing in pursuing a lawsuit is giving publicity to and repeating the false charge that the baby sitter did it.
