Hello CityBeat Readers. I’m the new kid on the CityBeat Block. (Okay, I’m the new dumpy middle-aged guy on the CityBeat Block. Picky, picky.) In the days (weeks, months, years, decades, centuries, millennium, eons…) to come, we’ll have more time to become acquainted. I look forward to the dialogue we’ll develop in these digital pages. For now, though, I’m too exhausted to be witty having just watched the State of Denial address by President Bush (along with all the scintillating, if predictable, commentary—PBS thought he was okay but probably didn’t help his numbers much; Fox thought he was the second coming come to life.) For the numerologists amongst you, have fun counting how many times the word “Iran” was used tongith. Change one small letter and you’d think it was a few years back and the President was talking about another rogue Middle Eastern regime. Augury of the future? We’ll talk.
