Obama to Name Fonzarelli Secretary of Cool
WASHINGTON - President-elect Barack Obama will hold a news conference this morning to announce that he is naming Arthur Fonzarelli as his Secretary of Cool.
Mr. Fonzarelli, or “the Fonz,” as he is known to his colleagues in the greater Milwaukee motorcross/juvenile delinquent communities, is the final appointee to the Obama cabinet.
Attempts to reach Mr. Fonzarelli for comment at his upper-garage apartment or at his office in the men’s room of a popular teenage soda shop were unsuccessful.
It is believed that he spent the weekend at Inspiration Point with the Hooper triplets preparing for his new job.
As head of the Department of Cool, Secretary Fonzarelli will be in charge of implementing President Obama’s oft-stated campaign pledge to restore America’s cool in the world.
According to Obama spokesman Bill Burton, the new Secretary knows just how to get the job done.
“Secretary Fonzarelli has instructed me to release the following statement: ’All nerds in the department are to clean out their desks and be off department property by five o’clock eastern standard time. The purging of nerds will hasten the return of our cool. Aayyyyy.’”
For people who are new to the burghosphere or don't want to mess around with finding blogs and configuring Google Reader, I have spent sometime configuring my blog roll to be what I believe to be a great cross section of the available Pittsburgh Blogs. I have been getting my pittsburgh news and entertainment almost exclusively from blogs for over a year now, so I can assure you the list below is well vetted.
Each of the categories of blogs below is sorted by the most recently published, so you can use my blog (and the open in new tab or new window function) to filter through the new posts of the last couple days.
As always, I am happy to take suggestions for blogs to add to the list below.
