The [Monday] Papers

So the hard drive on my Macbook is basically full. I have an external drive that is also basically full. I have a couple of thumb drives that are full. So this morning I figured out how to clear some space on my external hard drive so I could clear some space on my laptop hard drive and the whole exercise took a lot longer than I expected - a couple hours! That set me way back.

So (this is the third time I've used "so" in this column) let me just get these basics out and then I've got some other posts and a fresh column that will appear later today or tomorrow. Sorry.

The Apology Kristen McQueary Should Have Written
Penned by the gifted Matt Farmer.

This piece is also scheduled by to re-published by Crain's this afternoon is now also up at Crain's.

Mobster Cop
One more time for this TV show, which I do a lot of narrating for.

Sound Opinions
There was no Weekend Desk Report - I was at a wedding shower all day Saturday - but that doesn't mean you can't listen to the weekend episode of the world's only rock 'n' roll radio talk show:

"Great records are released every year that, for whatever reason, fly under the radar. Jim and Greg unearth some of their latest musical Buried Treasures. Plus, we hear the untold story of the 'Patient Zero' of music piracy."

* Jeff Bezos, Like Many CEOs, Is A Psychopath.

* Despite Hurricane, New Orleans Public Defender System Remains Overwhelmed And Underfunded.


A sampling.
