NYC is quiet early on the weekends.  Most everyone is sleeping in or out of town. So while walking my dog Benny to Petco around 9AM  Saturday morning I spot a very handsome man exiting Zaro’s bakery. Is it Derek Jeter?  Does he, like David Wright, the Mets ball player and all around cute one, live around the corner from me?
The I realized – it was Harold Ford, Jr. He’s the man that moved from Tennessee three years ago after losing his Senate race and has quietly begun to stir the pot here in the Big Apple. He appears regularly on MSNBC as a talking head. I mentioned him awhile back as the guy who has the chutzpah to challenge Kirsten Gillibrand in the upcoming Democratic primary.  He was on his cellphone speaking to someone about an upcoming interview,  I was going to interrupt him and tell him to ‘go for it’ but Benny had to sniff a very pungent fire hydrant and I missed my chance.  Ford wrote an op/ed piece in the NY Times today. I am not sure what his real agenda is – but stay tuned – the NYC Primary is going to be very interesting.  Andrew Cuomo is going to throw his big hat into the Democratic Primary for Governor this week too.

–  The PS on my jury duty experience last week.  I was disqualified from one jury for being too opinionated. Moi?  We were all excused mid-day on the second day and thanked for our service.  We were told that we would not be called for any State jury duty for the next six years. However- if the Feds call us for jury duty – well, good luck.  So, it is anyone’s guess who will be called for the upcoming terrorist trials (if they ever happen).  Can you imagine that jury pool?

Lucky you re jury duty. In LA County, you’re only off the hook for a year. I served twice in 18 months, on a trial both times.
