This Week in Milford

What, Gil Worry?

“Dad’s still recovering from a stroke; money’s still tight; three kids, one computer; and if my soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend’s red-ass father has his way, I won’t be able to use the computer at the public library anymore. So no, Mister Coach Thorp, you don’t need to worry about me anymore.”

Sad afternoon for the Mudlarks as a “dandy start” from Gonzalo “You can still call me Gonzo even after The Mayor* has left the building” Aceves goes wasted. (Gonzo must feel a bit like Max Scherzer these days.) How sad is it? Even the school bus has turned gray.

Sadder still: Abel Brito burning the midnight oil thinking he has a chance of landing that coveted Milford Library Board seat. The computers are already paid for, numbnuts, and your daughter’s not sucking face in the stacks these days. After the Board hears Zane’s sob story, Abel will realize his is a wasted effort. Then again they might think Zane is a short-timer in this tank town, and either leave the position unstaffed or choose an as-yet-unseen challenger. What exactly does Kaz do in the offseason?

*Speaking of The Mayor, I wonder what he’s up to these days? Since we know the Milford brain trust is aware of this page, let’s liven up the middle of this dull week with a poll.


  1. P2.5-“Whattya say we hit a Steak ‘n’ Shake and forget about this library crap for awhile?”

  2. Brito…what a dick….Brian Bosworth one said that ‘NCAA’ is an acronym for “national collection of aging assholes” and that’s a good description of this library board too. I’d be surprised if they would support this knob stayin’ up all night to convince them to change the status quo. I hope Zane wins and then tells Katy to go fuck herself…there’s plenty of fish in the sea and he doesn’t need her bullshit either.

  3. In the right hands, with the right writer, it might be entertaining to watch Brito join the library board … and then get voted down 6 to 1 on everything. He’d go from “I’m going to change everything single handedly” to “I am wasting every other Thursday night, for no return, and I did it to myself”.
    In the right hands. With the right writer.

  6. Oh Lordy, Puh-llllleeeeeaassseee, do NOT bring back Bader or Heather. As Rodney Dangerfield would say about them in Caddyshack

    “Now I know why tigers eat their young.”

  9. As best I can tell, the only way to find the results on this poll is to vote, so : Early & Often!!!

  10. I don’t want to see anyone on that list period, but especially Standish, Burns and Karininininna

  11. I have a terrible feeling that having actually studied the library finances, Babel Grito will decide that the library is well run after all and will come up with a plan to promote its use. Then Coach MdDonald at EIEIO will recruit Corinna, Katy will return to blowing Zane in the nonfiction section, and we will go on to the golf plot while the fishermen and their wives dance in the courtyard.
