Tuesday, in a major accomplishment, the New York Sun managed to spell JP Avlon's name correctly
; even more importantly, Avlon managed in his column to work up praise for New York gubernatorial candidate Tom Golisano. See, unfortunately, on Monday a column ran noting that Golisano's company, Paychex, has been damaged in the recent stock market unpleasantnesses.That isn't especially unfortunate in and of itself; however, it ran directly opposite a full-page Golisano for governor ad (at least the second such in two weeks). Lucky for Seth and Ira, JP rode to the rescue, lauding Golisano's plan to use lottery money to fund scholarships for B students. Way to save the Golisano cash cow, JP! Remind Uncle Brucie
to give you a raise!
We have of late been noticing the byline of an oddly monikered individual called Beagan Wilcox in the pages of the Sun. Come, let us meet young Beagan on his (?) journey to becoming "an average American worker" (this of course is an unfair, out-of-context quote; Beagan could not have known he (?) would end up at a distinctly sub-average place of employment), and say farewell to those lazy Augusts
