And mazel tov to new dad Chris Potter and wife Melanie for the birth today of son Cormac.Potter's been a good friend and on occasion (but only when he thinks it's warranted, of course) an annoyingly passive-aggressive critic to this blog for a long long time. Except for the stubborn defamation lawsuits that our attorneys assure us have direct links to something Potter suggested to us, his insights are, for the most part, not so damaging as to force us to shut down the blog and move to Toronto to avoid Homeland Security.
But I fear I've said too much. I do want to take a moment to congratulate Mr Potter on his great good fortune!
And in his defense, I'd like to point out something to Tim McNulty, P-G writer who included this in his piece:
Pittsburgh City Paper's cover story this week is on the Corey O'Connor/Chris Zurawsky race to replace Doug Shields as the Democrat in council district 5. (We're frankly shocked that Potter* didn't go with a "hair apparent" headline.)Tim, have you seen Potter's "hair line" these days? It's farther back than mine! If there's a reason he didn't make up some cheap coiffure drollery to describe a full head of hair, it's probably because he is, like me and Tony Norman, unfairly hair-free up top.
Life's hell for the follicularly challenged, you know. Cormac will understand this in about 45 years.
