Rant #417: This and That

Yes, I know that they got Navy Capt. Owen Honors. He has been relegated to desk duty, which pretty much means his Navy career is over.

Yes, I know that Gerry Rafferty passed away. His tunes "Stuck in the Middle With You" with Stealers Wheel and the masterpiece "Baker Street" will live on forever.

Yes, I know that today is the 13th anniversary of the death of Sonny Bono, who was then a politician when he was skiing and struck a tree; he would be 75 years old this year.

Yes, I know that the tax filing deadline has been pushed to April 18, so the District of Columbia can celebrate Emancipation Day, a holiday that I, personally, did not know existed (how about a day off from work?).

Yes, I know that New York City, with all of its ills, raked in $31 billion in visitor spending in 2010, with more than 48 million visitors coming to Fun City during the year. The top number of visitors came from the U.K, followed by Canada and Germany (and when I say New York City, you know that most of these tourists aren't going to The Bronx; I mean Manhattan).

Yes, and talking about Fun City, I know that they are probing the reasons whey they failed so miserably in their snow cleanup efforts during the last blizzard we had on Dec. 26. Evidently, some sanitation workers decided to call in sick that day and ... well, you can figure out the rest.

And yes, I know that Yes is a band that has been popular for the past nearly 40 years or so.

And YES is the Yankees' sports and entertainment network.

I just decided to use "Yes" on everything today. I guess I am a "Yes" man.

Yes, yes, yes!
