I don’t think that word means what you think it means

Surely not!

In one of the very few local stories Greenwich Time has carried related to the storm, it is reported that “Clubs open their doors to non-members”.  Fascinated by the vision of the Field Club and Round Hill welcoming those who ordinarily aren’t “clubable”, I clicked on the link, only to discover that what the reporter considers “clubs” are the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA and the Senior Center. Oh dear. So far as I know, if you’re a member of the Mianus River Boat Club, you should keep your mooring because you won’t be hobnobbing with Thurston and Lovey anytime soon.

    Ha! Ha! I thought the same exact thing. Although not open to strangers (guests however are welcome) Tamarack is open with their generator 24 hrs a day. The staff has been working tirelessly serving food, providing warm shelter and hot showers.

    Looks like Bloomberg just got religion, and is now worshipping at the altar of climate change, and has just endorsed Obama as the best high priest to carry us forward to carbon footprint reduction. Let us all repent and bow to the god of global warming.

    • He says his primary reasons for endorsing Obama are abortion, climate change and homosexual’s right to marry. Could there be three less important matters facing the future of our country? What I find puzzling is how a person could be serious enough to build a business and make serious money at it and then spend his later years fretting over what size soda pops other people drink, who wears the dress at a wedding and polar bears. Bizarre.

    I dunno, kinda fits if you give it some thought. Bizarre closeted gay self loathing jewish mayor endorses equally if not more bizarre self loathing closeted gay Muslim president….

  6. Our club is filled with people in ratty jeans, sweatshirts, basketball shorts, yoga pants and pajamas. I’m sorry just because you lost power (and so did we), that is no reason to look like a derelict. Put on a pair of khakis and a collared shirt.

    In one fell swoop, Bloomberg can throw his hands up in the air and exonerate himself of all blame and offer the solution — it was global warming not me or lack of foresight; the solution: elect Obama and pay more taxes. Success in business does not alway translate into success at other things. Quite often, as in the early days at the Ford factory, an magnate’s vision of utopia degenerates into having to bring in thugs to shoot your employees. But Bloomberg hasn’t gone off the deep end quite as deeply as Ted Turner who in this clip thinks it’s a good thing that US troops are committing suicide:

    Ted Turner was a prodigious boozer if I recall correctly; WET BRAIN?
