Mr. Pink

On of this site’s most avid readers is now chief of staff to Councilman Eric Gioia of Queens.

Yesterday I ran into Jerel Klue, the football player-sized aide who likes the color pink, who told me about his promotion. His loyalty to Gioia is well-known, but his fondness for this site is more discreet.

At a fundraiser earlier this year, I asked Jerel the pink tie he was wearing that night was in homage of his favorite blog?

“That’s sick. But write it.”
