Stepping from the shadows of the B.E.T.

Ed Krumeich will accept job as Third Selectman. I’m sure he’d prefer to see Tesei defeated completely but even if Ed comes in last, as he has before, at least this time he’ll gain the loser’s prize of being permitted to attend ribbon cuttings at the sewage plant, kiss the winner of the Cos Cob School Field Day potato sack race and anything else Lynn and Peter won’t attend. I don’t know why a talented lawyer and genuinely nice guy like Ed would want this stupid job but heck, it doesn’t pay and there’s no honor in it, so why not let him have it?

    Another CF blog entry, another Cos Cob jab.

    Hey, Tesei is a Cos Cobber too, so that sack race winner is his to kiss.

    All roads lead through Cos Cob CF.

      Krumeich lives on Perry Ridge – I was only citing Cos Cob school because of the comely pulchritude to be found there – Ed deserves a treat, Cos Cobber, so lighten up.

    Chris,
    I’m sure that you have seen this on Walt. He’s back in the office, doing what I ask?

    South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford says he “crossed lines” with a handful of women other than his mistress — but never had sex with them.

    The governor said he “never crossed the ultimate line” with anyone but Maria Belen Chapur, the Argentine at the center of a scandal that has derailed his once-promising political career.

    “This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story,” Sanford said. “A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day.”

    During an emotional interview at his Statehouse office with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sanford said Chapur is his soul mate but he’s trying to fall back in love with his wife.

    He said that during the encounters with other women he “let his guard down” with some physical contact but “didn’t cross the sex line.” He wouldn’t go into detail.

    Oh gee-whiz CF, I am being light.

    I am afraid my new organization; The Cos Cob Anti-Defamation League may not tread so lightly though. They are a sensitive bunch.

    PS – Sanford sure did do a lot of hiking on the old AP trail, eh?

      On “Wait wait, don’t tell me!” last week they were discussing all the hikers who really accomplished a proud feat of traversing the AP from Georgia to Maine and now being denied their glory because hereafter, “I’m hiking the Appalachian Trail” has a whole new meaning.

    No doubt, “out for a hike” and “hiking the AT” has a whole new meaning.
