If There Is A God, He Is Totally Playing Mind Games With Inquirer/DN Employees

For, you see, it was not enough that the fates had chased the Inky and DN from their old home on Broad Street, only to have the new owner, Bart Blatstein, eye up the location as a potential casino destination. But now, in their new home at 8th and Market, there exists the possibility that newspaper staff could well look out their windows one day, only to find a casino where the Disney Hole used to be. Now, to paraphrase Depeche Mode, we don’t want to start any blasphemous rumors, but we think that God’s got a sick sense of humor, and when we die, we expect to hear him say, “DUHHHH, the whole casino thing was a metaphor for how everyone should have taken the buyouts sooner! You know, like Kenny Rogers you-gotta-know-when-to-fold-’em? Christ. I don’t know why I even bother.”

    Why exactly are we in such a rush to see the Inky and DN gutted and turned into a propaganda rag for a bunch of connected developers and crooked political bosses?

    What you mean ‘we,’ kemosabe?

    I know you were probably just looking for the humorous hook, but I’m not sure how else to read “the whole casino thing was a metaphor for how everyone should have taken the buyouts sooner! You know, like Kenny Rogers you-gotta-know-when-to-fold-’em?”

    Right now, the union is really the only thing standing in Norcross’ way.

    Talking about things that are already happening is not ‘rushing’ them, my man.
