By Sam Smith | 7. 10. 2015 | 9:11 a. m. CT. Given the Mavs deal fell apart with Jordan, what about some combination of Noah/Taj/Brooks for Chandler Parsons, Devin Harris and Stoudemire. I like a lot of our players, but we just don't have enough. I feel like focus has been more on the bottom line than on winning for a very long time. Feels like you have to have a Cubs fan mentality of wait until next year, which is a tough one to swallow. Sam: I have heard a lot of this lament, Do Something. I know when all your friends are shopping you feel sort of left out and want to come home with something. First, a lot of teams are going to have buyer’s remorse over this free agency period. But you also could be stuck with role players whom you’ve paid incredible amounts, and even if you don’t go over the cap you still won’t have as much left as you wish.
On Saturday, Jean-Louis Bourgeois ’s W. 10th St. pad certainly seemed like the place to be. Among the guests who dropped in for his combo 75th birthday party / July 4th “open house” were health guru and WBAI radio icon Gary Null. Mark Crispin Miller of N. Y. U. Faculty Against the Sexton Plan and his wife, therapist Amy Smiley. Soho poet S teve Dalachinsky and his wife, painter/poet Yuko Otomo. Occupy Wall St. veteran Robert Reiss — who happens to be the brother of Yvonne Collery , who wrote the “Catastrophe Cats” series of articles for The Villager after the Second Ave. Null gave Bourgeois some birthday gifts, including organic toothpaste and his new book, “Reboot Your Brain,” on how to keep the ol’ noggin working at peak level through better eating. Looking out from Bourgeois’s 13th-floor balcony, which has a great view of the Christopher St. Pier, Null also told us all about the research he used to do about AIDS at the Ramrod bar — which used to be on the famous gay boulevard — interviewing... Dalachinsky and Bourgeois regaled the crowd with tales of the art scion’s famous “spider sculptor” mom, Louise Bourgeois, and her vaunted “salons” at her Chelsea lair.
There’s no good view from the hospital room. The ER was the only thing outside our window. It was daylight saving time when Joe, my 87-year-old roommate, was admitted into the ICU with chest pains. The nurse wound the clock in his room forward. It seemed like a lousy thing to do—stealing an hour from an old man lying in a hospital bed. Joe was my girlfriend’s grandfather. The three of us lived together in Brooklyn. He had lived in that same apartment for over fifty years, alone mostly, since his wife died at 29. It was like living in someone’s walk-in time capsule. He kept things. Nancy and I would wake up to Joe winding his Victrola, spinning 45s, letting the old wartime love songs and fox trots fill the apartment. He’d transport us back to another Brooklyn. I think listening to his old tunes was the closest he got to slowing time down to a manageable pace. Joe was mugged on Coney Island once. He liked to stay a step ahead of the common criminal. Joe hated hospitals. Like all cancer, it was cruel. No matter the pain, Joe stayed tough.
