casa de cazCaz Dolowicz explains: Greetings from a secret location in Pinellas County, Florida, where I keep my winter quarters and where from, today, I’d like to introduce the new staff of Who Walk In Brooklyn. Over the weeks, months and years to (is a preposition) come (is a verb), I hope all of them will become familiar and trusted names  in the Cosmodemonic Telegraph Company of your mind. I wish only the best for most of our WWIB’s former contributors— a few of them had become such pains in the goddamn ass, The Publisher asked if I could take time out from Spring Training to clean things up a little. A little? A lot! And I really don’t care that much about Spring Training, although it’s not unpleasant to go see Toronto in Dunedin, the Phillies in Clearwater, the Cardinals down in St. Petersburg or— for our new hermano  (no Mike Piazza) Dallas Penn— the Mets in Port St. Lucie, if you don’t mind the drive. The Yankees are in Tampa, of course, and only slightly less loathsome than they’ve been in the Bronx the last thirty years. Don’t let soft feelings over convicted felon George Steinbrenner’s senility fool ya’ll and fuck former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión too. Tom Robbins of the Village Voice might not cuss like old Caz but he’s no softie; here Tom sets up some terrific reporting Greg B. Smith and Robert Gearty of the Daily News about the man who might be the single most ridiculous and insulting Cabinet appointment (as Urban Policy Director) of the Obama Administration— one that nobody has even tried to defend except to note that, like, isn’t he from El Barrio or something… City Island is El Barrio, right? Mi corazon es Carrión!
