The Loop

Nods of agreement?
Heads were nodding at ACC’s annual meeting this Tuesday, where lights were turned low and Chairman and CEO Rick Aab vied with Bill Clinton for long-windedness.
Overheard at the meeting (following Aab’s response to a shareholder question):
Shareholder 1: “Did it make sense what he just said?”
Shareholder 2: “(long pause) I think so….”

A pretty good time
What’s Rochester’s claim to fame this summer, according to the Wall Street Journal?
A party hosted by Ten Ugly Men.
For those who missed the July 20 article, the bash–held this Saturday–is an annual event drawing nearly 2,000 carousers in past years. “People schedule their vacations around the party,” Rochesterian Lisa Orlando says in the piece.
It’s good to see Rochester living up to its national repuation as the north coast Party Mecca.

A short bike ride from here
The Shaw Festival gets a glowing write-up in Time magazine’s July 24 issue.
The summer-long playfest in Canada’s Niagara-on-the-Lake devotes itself to plays by George Bernard Shaw and his contemporaries. Giving thumbs-up to this year’s productions–“You Never Can Tell,” “The Philanderer” and “Ladies in Retirement”–reviewer Brad Leithauser depicts Niagara-on-the-Lake as “a pretty town that might be described as the confluence of a network of bike paths and vineyards.”
Sotted cyclists? Couldn’t be more Shawian.
