I will be on vacation through Aug. 3 and not posting to this blog.
One City Hall observer, upon hearing the news of my vacation, suggested that I "volunteer" my time to The News for at least eight hours a week, four on Tuesdays and another four on weekends. And yes, the suggestion came in the form of an e-mail. But not from Tanya Perrin-Johnson.
I don't want to leave you readers completely high and dry, however, so here's a couple of things you can do while I'm off.
First, take a look at the list of contributors to the Brown re-election campaign and post a comment or shoot me an e-mail with your observations. Help me connect the dots.
Here are the links:
Second, kick back and enjoy a summer-themed video. Gee, there are so many to choose from.
How about "Summertime Blues" from my favs, The Who?
"Boys of Summer" from Don Henley?
Or "In the Summertime" from Mongo Jerry? That one brings back warm memories.
Good stuff, to be sure, but not quite the theme I'm looking for. Not given the past month.
Hey, I've got it. "(Hot Time) Summer in the City," by the Lovin' Spoonful.
Hit it, boys.
