Post 2305 - Neat!

This will be a short post. Been a very long day. But I couldn't let the day pass without mentioning that the great Joe Connolly is now following me on twitter.

Mr. Connolly work for the Wall Street Journal. Several times a day, Monday through Friday, he provides brief business news updates. I try really hard to listen to at least one every day as I drive to work. I'll tune away from the Q or Live 105 or CBC or whatever and jump over to 880 on the AM dial to WCBS out of New York.

His reports are short and sweet and to the point. His delivery is professional but still has a droll quality I find very appealing.

When I learned today that he was on twitter I followed him and sent him a message. He wrote back. We will exchange a few emails. Turns out his family is from Newfoundland. Can't wait to tell him my mother calls Newbie, "Newfie".

"Newfie". The other N word.

If he provides a mailing address I'll send him a bunch of blog business cards. Maybe he'll give one to Michael Bloomberg. A Bevboy can always hope!

I'll let you know how this all unfolds. All 4.7 of you should be happy for me.

Reeling from the death of Roger Ebert. I'll discuss him and his work here in a future blog post.

See you tomorrow.
