Laying off copy editors at large newspapers is a terrible idea, but it can be funny. You thought hyper-gentrification was bad? Try "hyper-gentrifiction". (Novels about Bushwick and Columbia Heights?) Thank you for this gem,

And in the late 80s / early 90s he was a champion of Italian/EC engagement with neighbors to the East, something that nobody else was doing then. Corrupt, but prescient
