Why do I feel like what could be a fun Summer of Tavares (or Hedman) will instead be overshadowed by a growing sandstorm of ugly politics? Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi and Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray are both up for election this year, from opposite parties, and from increasingly contrasting views on the Lighthouse Project. Overt yet indirect stimulus-related shots are being fired, with Murray still pushing Coliseum renovation as if it could stand on its own. Very thorough takes from Nick at Let There be Light(house) and B.D. at IslandersIndependent, who appropriately finds it reminiscent of the ending of Reservoir Dogs. I have always assumed things will get done somehow, some way, but the voices of locals who told me just how inbred the politics can be always ring in the back of my head.
