I’m excited. I found white anchovies. Oh, baby, I love white anchovies. Usually I find them only in restaurants.
You throw out white anchovies at a Bridgeport political function and the old-time pols might give up their first born for the last bite. Yes, Mr. Anchovy will be included in my seven fishes tonight, a high holy celebration. I’ll be cooking and cooking and cooking the next couple of days. On Christmas Day Ms. Mo’s family, the carnivore crowd, will be stopping in.
In between the preparation and the meals I’ll be checking in. If you hear of anything please let us know. Meanwhile, let’s start thinking about the top stories of the decade in the state’s largest city. I have some thoughts that I’ll be sharing as we head into 2010, and what a year that will be. Races for governor, U.S. Senate, Congress, state legislative contests, it’s going to be a crazy year with state political conventions in May and primaries in August before the November general election. And then, in 2011, a mayoral contest. Political junkies like me marinate in this stuff.
Thank you for making this webzine one of the hottest in the state. I can’t do this without you. OIB readers are the berries. We’ll have a whole bunch of stuff to crack open in the new year. Let me know what you hear. Chat soon.
Holiday Greetings From Mayor Finch, Sonya and Family
