Friends in the paper

And this time, it’s not in the police blotter-

Old friend and longtime mentor of mine, Hugo Burnham, got a giant writeup in the Boston paper. You can read about it here.

Interesting that Andy Gill (his old bandmate from Gang of Four) still seems threatened by Hugo. Just has to be top foogin dog.

One thing you have to hand to the English- they say what they feel. No pretending it’s all nicey-nice after all these years. No pretending that they don’t have opinions. Sometimes I wonder if the reason that Americans lack the courage to speak our minds in matters personal is that we’re a culture of shoe salesmen. You wouldn’t want to offend someone…. how could you finish the sale?

I am as guilty of this as anyone. Maybe more so.
