The PG says:
“Mayor Bob O’Connor was reported to be in stable condition yesterday after an unscheduled operation to drain fluied that had built up since the onset of his chemotherapy regiment, creating pressure on his brain.”
The Trib says:
“Mayor Bob O’Connor was in serious condition Sunday night in a neuro-intensive care unit at UPMC Shadyside following emergency surgery to drain fluid accumulating in his brain, according to a medical source close to the case.”
Whoa! One of those is Suzy Sunshine and one of those is “Death is Coming.”
So the PG is playing it down calling him “stable” and having had an “unscheduled operation,” while the Trib is throwing around words like “serious,” “neuro-intensive care unit,” and “emergency surgery.”
And now Yarone Zober is our deputy mayor with all of the powers of Mayor except for the ability to hire/fire staff.
Yarone Zober, or YZ as I like to call him, is all of 31 years old, which I find surprising only because the Mayor chose a 31 year old to work in his stead. I have a hard time trusting employees that are even one year younger than me. They’re such rapscallions, ya know!?
Which is funny because I distinctly remember when I took a two month vacation to Mexico and I met an American girl there who was with her friends on a six month vacation, and when she told me she was 31 (I was 24 at the time), I was like … Damn! She’s old.
Let me remind you that I am 32 years old. Let me tell you that once again, I need to go lie down. Both the Deputy Mayor and the President of City Council are younger than me.
Hey, at least I’m hot and Yarone Zober always looks like someone is tickling him:
