Dear Greenwich Roundup:
He was FIRED by the new owners of the Advocate, and obviously has a sketchy reputation in the world of CT journalism. So why does Hersam Acorn find it necessary to hire him and run these columns in places he doesn't work in or live near?
Additionally, in The Darien Times, Joe Pisani said he was happy to say his "colleague" (no comment) Susie would be joining him at The Darien Times,with her column of gossip and celebrity sightings. Another mug shot. Interestingly, no one I know cares to read about "sightings" and gossip? We like the home town feeling of our home town newspapers. There is enough real life gossip to sink the Titanic, and it's kind of nice not to have "sightings" popping up all over our towns because it keeps downtown free of losers (traffic, too) trying to get a peek at the latest star ducking in Dunkin Donuts for a regular coffee.
Are Joe and Susie working for free? Is it a lame attempt at recapturing "visibility" or editorial bliss or "the good 'ole days" when Joe had hair, or is it "revenge of the writers"? Are you people in Greenwich trying to dump these two on other towns so you can rid yourselves of trashy self-absorbed or erroneously printed stories? Obviously, I'm kidding but the "did I say that?" is just too much stupidity. I'm tempted to actually answer the question Joe is asking.......and then Bill Clarke and I would become best friends.....which would be fine, I guess.
I happen to like this web site, and many of my friends are logging on to read some REAL news. But, how about a little help.... Lets start out with WHY these former Advocate employees are popping up like weeds and how can we keep our home newspapers like they were....fun to read.
