He Hate Me

Just for some fun, I thought I'd share a charming little note some unnamed human-like pile of electrified meat sent to my New Times e-mail address yesterday evening. I have no idea which story prompted it:

DATE/TIME:February 16, 2006, 5:16 pm
SUBJECT:How Yellow is your Spine Norman?
May your mother die a horrible death for shitting out genetic scum like you.You have no right to breathe let alone live as an American. The day they eliminate "journalists" is the day real Americans will be safe.Now go fuck your daughter or the nearest infant. That is, after all, what you liberal euro-whores prefer.
spit on youdeadliberals ca

I know this is an old-hat criticism, but why does it seem that everyone who sends veiled death threats or hate letters claiming that I'm a coward do so anonymously? I'll tell you why: They know I'd take them down. Oh yeah.

In The News

The state of the Sentinel was strong today, but the front page was a little nauseating. Dominating above-the-fold territory was a story about waits for Wilma-related auto repair. Don't get me wrong, it was a fine story, written by Mc Nelly Torres. But it was obviously overplayed and too do-goody and pandery (uh-huh, the Pulp makes up words when it feels like it). Over the package was the phrase: Consumer Alert. And then a box (you know how we love boxes) titled: "News You Can Use." Why don't they just break into our houses and stick a spoon down our throats? Yuck. And another thought: Don't you think everybody who had car damage after Wilma knows they're waiting?

On the Local front, Jon Burstein and Sean Gardiner had a good scoop about Adam Kidan visiting Big Tony Moscatiello after the mobster was arrested for killing Kidan's business rival, Greek dynamo Gus Boulis. The question: When is Kidan going to be charged with murder? He's the only connection between Moscatiello, the ringleader of the hit, and the murder victim. What does the prosecution think, that Moscatiello pulled off the best-executed and most elaborately planned hit in recent Broward County history as a favor to Kidan. I don't know what's going to happen here, but it's Pulpalicious.

The Sentinel also had the story, written by Buddy Nevins and Bob LaMendola, about the ouster of North Broward Hospital District CEO Wil Trower. But it felt a little rushed and sort of slapped together. The Herald, behind Beth Reinhard, Erika Bolstad, and Samuel P. Nitze, did a much more thorough job on the sorry Trower's long overdue pink slip. And that makes it the Story of the Day. The Pulp isn't for chest-beating, but I uncovered more stinking corruption in that place than you could shake a stethoscope at. And give Jeb Bush credit: He cleaned house. Now, when is the state attorney going to finish his investigation into Dorsey Miller?

Two last things: The Herald's Ashley Fantz had a weird (in a good way) story about apparent "space junk" hitting a house. And on page 3B, Scott Wyman and Buddy Nevins shared a byline. I'll leave it at that for now.

That email has Dick Cheney written all over it. Watch out for scattering birdshot.

I dialed the number your secret admirer left, Bob, and got the phone lady voice telling me it couldn't be completed as dialed. You think it might be a dummy?

The person who sent that e-mail is a coward who can't take the truth. I've received a lot of hateful e-mails and it's usually because I wrote the truth and it hurt.
