Wilma Imposes Temporary Break on Nugget
She is about to speak, and power is likely to be cut soon in South Florida. When it goes (and it always does) the Nugget will be on temporary leave. But fear not, the Nugget shall return as soon as FPL decides it's time. By the way, in last Friday's article (October 21, 2005, Get Your Snake Oil Here), the Nugget made reference to Telly Savalas (Kojak ring a bell?) in relation to the Diner's Club card. An astute reader has pointed out that it was the Player's Club (scroll down) instead. While who among us doesn't recall with fondess Telly's scene-stealing performance as villian Ronald 'Foots' Pulardos in 1963's The Man from the Diner's Club, the Nugget stands corrected. Player's Club it was. Sure hope Ed Fishman doesn't find out, he's not going to be happy.
