Meet The New Boss . . . And The Other New Boss

Some situations (apparently) require lots of rules. Other situations involve fewer rules, such as bankruptcy proceedings, in which the first rule is that there are no rules -- merely guidelines, loosely enforced.

Amid the caterwauling and contrivance, the closures and confusion and the cover-up, the convincing apprehension and curiously hopeful signals concerning control and dissent with respect to the G-20 event that will be conducted in Pittsburgh next month, there currently exists just one rule (apparently a difficult one for yinzers to apprehend):

The rules are not The Rules until Vic Walczak and Donetta Ambrose say so.

UPDATE: I suggest you buy as many Who albums as you can, beginning with Who's Next and Quadrophenia . . . and Tommy and Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy . . . and The Who By Numbers and The Kids Are Alright . . . and . . . hell, just watch this and all will become clear:

Ah, the detours... okay 5:15 for sure, but what on earth does boris the spider have to do with the golly gee twenty?

Did you read the Trib article today about the possible lawsuit? I took the fact that Vic wasn't mentioned as a sign that maybe it's not all it's cracked up to be.

Why the Who? A nod for the headline: Meet the new boss . . . same as the old boss

Much as I like 5:15, the song I listen to first on the soundtrack (remastered by Entwistle, accentuated bass) is The Real Me. Might be the best bass performance I've encountered.

I haven't read the Trib article, and don't expect to be greatly interested in the litigation until Walczak files his documents. (If Mike Healey files something, I'd pay attention to that, too.)
