Regarding “Bloomberg: Piranha or Pariah? In or Out?” (June 21), Vickie Campbell writes:
Thanks for reading, and you are so right. I was trying to answer another reader’s question about what exactly New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg said yesterday. That reader wrote:
There’s something fishy here. Hope you can sniff it out.
Yeah, well, I sniffed it out and relied on this Times morsel:
Wrong. I dug up the CBS Evening News clip and Bloomberg did indeed say “piranha,” and reader Campbell is right in saying he rhymed it with banana.
Not that there’s anything wrong with being a pariah — just ask Marge Simpson.
Anyway, that’s what I get for relying on the Times when I should have been watching Katie Couric deliver the news. But I just can’t bring myself to watch her.
