LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: Bridge report fills in the gaps


Niagara Gazette — Brydges – Uh, yeah, that’s the guy. It was OK, we made more money on the contract to demolish the booths than we were taking in in tolls, but yeah, that’s the guy who made us look bad.

Rhodes – And he lives on Grand Island? Don’t they have any standards at all over there?

Brydges – No, he doesn’t, and there’s not even enough Republicans there for two tables of pinochle, but they love him.

Rhodes – Pinochle? Nobody over there plays bridge?

Brydges – Nobody on Grand Island can even SAY bridge without saying (copulative expletive) first.

Rhodes – And these people voted for Paladino?

Brydges – Yup. More than two to one.

Rhodes – Sounds like somebody needs to be taught a lesson. So here’s what you’re gonna do. On the first really busy Friday morning… (tape runs out at this point).

Well, that’s what happened, according to Grudge, and you can take it from there.

And we hope everybody concerned can take a joke. April Fool. Come visit, we love you, honest.
