You’re too young, J.Gravelle, but there was once a guy who played for the Detroit Tigers named Gates Brown. All he did was pinch hit, and opposing pitchers could never get him out. He was the best. You are the Gates Brown of the blogosphere.
But as good as you were today, it’s tough to top your entry from last week entitled, “Embracing Sprawl.”
It hit all the right nerves. Your blog jabbed liberals. It took a shot at………GASP……people tired of living in the city who move out to the suburbs and actually expect that there be places to buy gas and milk (that whole sprawl deal). And you were critical of non-developer David Hintzman. Since we were talking baseball earlier, at least the really good guys get acknowledged if they get a hit three times every ten at-bats. Hintzman is O for the last 3 years. But it’s not his fault. As your guest blog pointed out, it’s those nasty Foxes. How dare they, like, stay in their own house.
You know what you’ve done, J.Gravelle? You’ve made Hintzman one nervous Nellie. His oh-so busy day just got busier thanks to you.
Now when he gets to the office, in addition to feverishly checking my blog to see what I might have written about his non-development, he now has to check The Daily Scoff to make sure that you, too, haven’t blogged about that veritable dust bowl at 56th and Rawson. That, of course, is before he gets his coffee and donut and reads the paper and watches Oprah, etc. What is it that you and I are up to again? Oh, yeh. We have an agenda. Silly us, actually wanting development to go up at a development site.
Well, you done good today. But I have to admit, I’m still lovin’ that post from last Wednesday.
