    Re: “Black coal, black swans

    interesting comments by both Pete Sheridan and Mr. K - however, as a certified geezer ( born before Pearl harbor), I'd be inclined to go with Mr. K. Contemporary documents seem to show that Chamberlain thought he'd dodged the bullet.

    Re: “Pitching City Council! to HBO

    C'mon, Bill- it's still the longest running tragicomedy in local history. We should be proud that we each had bit parts in the show years ago. And Scott - who else could play you? Maybe the young DeNiro "You talkin' to me??!!"

    Re: “Are owners of the burned homes 'rich'?

    Pam, these folks may not need help from Care & Share or even the Red Cross, but they're not exactly rich. By my definition, a working couple with an aggregate family income of, say, $75K annually isn't rich-they're just two relatively low-salaried folks sharing expenses. Granted, there are homes at the top of Mountain Shadows that may be-or might have been-worth a million bucks, but that's a tiny minority.
