Editor’s Notebook: 5/8/12

• Had a great time lending a helping hand Saturday morning at the 11th annual Allegro Run for the Arts over at the Arts Council in Norwich. It’s a neat little fundraiser (who says sports and the arts don’t go together?) for the organization, and since I couldn’t run 5k to save my life, the least I could do was hand out T-shirts and goodie bags at the crack of dawn.
• I have, over the years, perfected doing the least I can do. It’s a recurring theme here; try to follow along.
• In case I don’t get around to blogging tomorrow (and odds are I won’t), let me take this opportunity to state clearly, and for the record, that I will be on vacation Thursday and Friday, and therefore not responsible for anything you might see in the pages of The Evening Sun those two days. OK, that’s not entirely true, but I like to absolve myself beforehand (curse you, Catholic work ethic!) so I may vacation with a clear conscience. Your cruise directors for the tail end of the week will be Pat Newell and Brian Golden, the latter of whom is being groomed to sit in the captain’s chair all by himself by the time my traditional Summer Fridays Off begin in June. There’s a lot to learn, detail-wise, in putting this thing together. These two combined should have a pretty good handle on it.
• And if they don’t, I’ll be frolicking among the movers and shakers in our nation’s capital, mysteriously with no cell phone service.
