What We're Dreading in 2005
|We've given up worrying about all those things that could wreak havoc on our city. This year, we're all about sweating the small stuff. Here's what we're dreading in 2005.
· Star Jones. The whole thing. Make it stop.
· That the West Side Stadium gets the green light.
· That the High Line doesn't.
· February (except for Christo's "The Gates"), August.
· That the website Salon will disappear.
· That Paula Zahn won't.
· That Advil's next on the recall list.
· That the New-York Historical Society will wither under its new management. (Of course, if it flourishes under same, that will kinda suck, too.)
· Michael Jackson's trial.
· A Times column, television, books, and now book reviews by David Brooks. What next — DB, the fragrance?
· That Bed Bath and Beyond will bring back that large, creepy, animated Santa Claus. If you saw it, you know which one we mean.
· That Frank Wildhorn is writing a new musical.
· That Sondheim isn't.
· That The Amazing Race won't be on every week of the year.
· Not just that the MTA will go through with their asinine plan of corporate sponsorships of its stations, but that we'll have to endure months of hilarious station/sponsor ideas from local media.
· That there won't be enough of Julie Kavner.
· That there are more Hilton sisters.
· Correspondence from County Clerk Norman Goodman.
