COMMENT: Toner, Mike (MC1972) and “law of the jungle”


In last week’s EndNote you said

*** begin quote ***

“Why there is NO SUCH THING as “price gouging”!

Listen to the first cut of Jason’s podcast aa he clearly explains that “gouging prices” ensure that there is supply for those who need it the most.

A displaced family might squeeze into one room at the “gouging” price as opposed to spreading out in two rooms at the regular price. Thus ensuring a room for another family.


Simple law of economics at work to balance supply and demand.

Great explanation!!!”

*** end quote ***

I think an awfully benign (naive) justification of the “law of the jungle”

But, as always, thank you for you great work as JJ publisher and CIC!

COMMENT: Toner, Mike (MC1972) think Kennedy was 1972


RE: Joe Kennedy obit

There was a Joe Kennedy in my class – 1972. I remember that he had a job at the NY Times and was an early admirer of Aretha Franklin and soul music. Birth date is about right for class of ’72.

JOBIT: Fitzgerald, Jim [MC1972] on 2017-04Apr-17



Jim Fitzgerald, longtime AP writer and editor, dies at 66
By The Associated Press April 17, 2017 8:21 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Jim Fitzgerald, a longtime Associated Press writer and editor who helped shape the news service’s coverage of stories from terror attacks to the evolving landscape of aging, died Monday. He was 66.

Fitzgerald, who worked for the AP for 45 years before retiring in December, had been fighting leukemia for more than a year and a half. He died at a New York hospital, said his wife, Ellen Nimmons, a manager at AP’s headquarters.

During decades of covering New York City’s northern suburbs and editing local and national stories, Fitzgerald was known for handling some of the top news of the day with a can-do demeanor, professionalism, fairness and a gentlemanly grace. His trademark answer to an everyday “How are you?”: “Never better.”

*** and ***

Fitzgerald began working for the AP in part-time and temporary jobs as a Manhattan College student in 1971, then joined the news cooperative full time in New York in 1973, writing stories for radio and TV use. He moved on to what was then called the General Desk, editing stories for national and international distribution and helping supervise coverage of major news — and meeting Nimmons.
