07/18/09 Naked Man Walking in Greenwich

07/07/09

As I was getting onto exit 3 I-95 north yesterday morning there was a middle age man walking around totally naked. I called police who had already "knew" but I was checking to see if it made the news anywhere and I did not find it. As I know this isn't life interrupting news I was grossed out and thankfully saw before my children and was able to warn them to cover their eyes. I guess I'm just curious if it was a "prank" or someone seriously ill and if so how did he get that far without being caught... meaning there aren't really any houses nearby.

Dear Mr. Harrod:

I'm answering your call for editors/columnists.

A versatile communicator, I have experience in print, brodacast and Internet media.

I hosted a popular afternoon drive talk show on WGCH a few years ago that offered both hyperlocal and global views. I can easily delve back into the Greenwich landscape.

I'm not sure in which position I would be most effective. Perhaps Lifestyle Editor or opinion/arts columnist. I am inmpressed with your extensive coverage and would like to discuss future opportunities, time requirements and compensation.

07/18/09 Greetings from Cos Cob

07/08/09

Hello,

A while ago, for some unfathomable reason, you started listing the current post from one of my blogs on your blog. I appreciate it and have gotten maybe a dozen or so visitors. I think my new one's much better, though.

Anyway, the reason I'm writing you is...

I was wondering, you see, as I've noticed that there are two listings in the sidebar for Greenwich-based web designers, as to exactly how one might get listed there, as, well, that's what I do.

Although it's never happened, just 4 website gigs a month will keep me from living in a world where I get at least two overdrafts a week and 20+ phone calls a day...

Thanks,

Iggy Makarevich
