fly or wrench?

MD has a pretty lengthy article on Darrell Corti in todays Bee. Not a whole lot new here. The other day he reported in his blog that Darrell is in Portugal right now buying port (lucky dude) and that the old lady who crashed into the store destroyed some valuable bottles. It could have been a lot worse, though. Maybe they should move that section into an uncrashintoable part of the store. That's scary. I'll never taste one of the ancient wines in that dusty locker, but I still want them to be there so I can pretend that I can one day.

Breton gives a double dose of sanctimony today. He gets to suck up to Ella restaurant AND firefighters. And he sneaks in more praise for the doomed Three Monkeys. I feel bad for Three Monkeys (and Ella) because the city sold them a false bill of goods and I'm sure much of what they promised for that area is on hold because of a certain local wrench-in-the-works. He adds Texas Mexican into his list of the only businesses bringing life to downtown. Is that the same Texas Mexican that was forced out of business due to the citys redevelopment schemes and only brought back because of that same fly in the ointment? Must be a different one.

Don't shed any tears for 3 Monkeys. Any place that serves ribs and sushi gets whatever it deserves, as long as "it" is a swift and expensive demise.

But something for everyone.
because lord forbid everyone can't have what they fucking want all the time.

I am not sure why I let 3 monkeys bug me so bad but it does.
