Robert Kennedy Struck By SUV

A spokeswoman for the Ford Motor Company issued a statement today indicating the company´s regret over the recent purely accidental connection of a Ford Expedition, a popular SUV and the largest available, with Robert Kennedy. The spokeswoman did not offer explanation of the presence of the SUV on the Cape Cod tennis courts where Kennedy was struck, beyond the statement that "we designed them to go off-road". Kennedy is recovering in the hospital, where he continues to be critical of the condition of the nation’s automakers with respect to fuel economy standards.


Local Rock Star Seriously Under Appreciated

Local rock star Sean Mulrooney announced to the audience at his recent coffeehouse appearance that they clearly do not understand him. Clarifying, Mr. Mulrooney cited his heartfelt lyrics and months spent perfecting his acoustic guitar strumming.

"I could have loved you / but your car was on my foot", sang Mulrooney in his heartfelt ballad entitled "The Weight of Your Car". This is but one example of what Mulrooney feels is representative of his lyrics that "speak to regular people about real life".

"My lyrics are just too deep for those poseurs", said Mulrooney in interviews granted to the press after his appearance. According to Mulrooney he is considering "moving to Los Angeles to get discovered. Or maybe Boise, Idaho. People here are just too closed-minded."

Critics disagree with Mulrooney’s characterization of local music aficionados. John Chesterfield, a regular patron of the coffeehouse in question, stated Mulrooney is "probably the worst singer/songwriter I have ever heard here. It hurts me to call [him] a singer or a songwriter", in a statement delivered to Mulrooney from the front door of the coffeehouse.

Mulrooney asserts that the crowd "didn’t give me a chance". Unfortunately, Mulrooney’s appearance was cut short, as Chesterfield and other patrons assisted Mulrooney to the door. As a result, patrons were not able assess the entirety of the singer’s 14-song original repertoire.

Some sociological and artistic experts, including Mulrooney’s girlfriend, Jessica Upton, indicate that there may be some basis in the singer/songwriter’s assessment of the local musical acumen. As evidence, Ms. Upton cites the previous four performances by Mulrooney that had similar endings to last night’s coffeehouse appearance. "They just don’t see what I see", reflected Ms. Upton.
