“Irwin Chusid is not a lawyer, but simply an ambitious individual. He refuses to provide an address, so you understand that he is not a responsible person.”

“It is Groundhogs Day in Puerto Rico. Yes it is! If you recall, we had a spirited debate on the meaning of Ground Hogs Day in Puerto Rico in the elevator of a small department store, that I neither have the gumption or the gumption to name at the moment. Spring is near a few of friends say. I don’t think email is the proper medium to convey my anger about how the music community downplays the differences in certain animal-revelatory prognostications. When we met (via a mutual friend who adores your radio show) I enjoyed your humor, and they way I suspected you removed yourself emotionally to what Groundhogs day has come to mean in PR, particularly with the many important referendums coming up. When I first heard the song ‘Groundhogs Day In Puerto Rico,’ I wanted to retire from years of bagging ‘X.’ As I told you during our only encounter, there is something lethally beautiful about the way certain predictions become their shadows. I owe you Irwin, a great apology, or a hug.”
