I guess one advantage of being 'in-the-loop' is knowing certain things as 'givens.' When you blog about SG, even as an alum in the same city, you lose a great deal by not being at Swamp or being consumed by interest to keep up with SG's latest and greatest. For instance, even being in class with someone for a whole term and talking off and on over a year, still isn't enough time to figure out certain realities. Life is always better outside the closet, but it takes guts to make that transition.
I'm not too optimistic with the current/last-to-be-covered SG administration. Though I don't know Ryan Moseley personally, I know that he got the nod only after a few rounds of FBK-infighting... when you know someone emerges as the favorite between a feud of System toadies, you know in your hearts of hearts that the guy before must have done some pretty dirty stuff to get there. To quote the great NINA, "[Ryan] Moseley rode a wave that was set there for him."
But more importantly, I'm interested in finding out how SBP Moseley will use his appointment powers and how many of the 400+ strokes of his pen, will favor Turncoat Independents, FBK'ers, Large Greek House Leaders, and Cultural Whores (those that have been selling their unofficial-but-ironclad cultural endorsements to Moseley, Boyles, & dare I say...Joe Goldberg back in the day).
If anyone knows of these current bodies and have any interesting names, please make use of the comments section:
& Secretaries (Old AD's)
*Designated positions are done so w/o application, basically promised posts. I would also be interested in looking at the Senate and possibly the Supreme Court. Wouldn't it be something if Arturo went from SBVP to Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, lol, or if AIPAC's superstar on the bench got the top job...hmmm, certainly worth looking into.
I hope to see the comments area light up this weekend. But as usual, if you feel your comment will or writing style will give you away, yes, I'll take emails: Chris@ChristianDuque.com
I'm hoping to finally receive JCB's report, as well as looking forward to one from Amanda Kane to add to Bracco & Morales. Tommy Jardon does not reply to my emails anymore, Gavin Baker & Ryan Nelson are MIA in my inbox, the Cingular Bill long gone...haven't heard from JL, the FBK block old news haven't heard from SG, and so on and so forth.
Special Thanks To Nick Capezza & for the 500+ hits since.
Till Next Time,
