I had planned on writing a snarky entry about the rather long-lasting and unpleasant consequences of having eaten a large portion of turnips last night. I was going to opine that perhaps I was unreasonably contributing to global warming.
Then I came across this.
Coincidence? Perhaps. Then again, to quote my friend Paulie, maybe I have “ESPN”.
Today is Cousin Jackâ€™s birthday
Jack, who got me started with this curious hobby, left Jersey many years ago to head west to attend Stanford Law School. After having spent some time at a fancy-schmancy law firm in Portland, he switched gears to become a well-known and highly respected Tax Law Professor. He also became the family liberal, but we donâ€™t hold that against him.
Small World Department: A couple weeks ago, Jack posted a picture of his 1966 grammar school graduating class from St.Aloysius school in Newark (Down Neck). One of the Usual Suspects (The Original Bill) took a look at the picture on Jackâ€™s Blog and immediately recognized one of his relatives. Turns out that the relative he recognized married the brother of a guy I have know for years.
As Dax would say, â€œJust Damn!â€
You might want to drop by Jackâ€™s place to wish him a Happy Boitday.
Update: I fixed the link to Jack’s post containing the photo of his grammar school graduating class. Sorry for error.
