Apparently VDB’s gentle humor occasionally goes awry, like a TOW missile that narrowly misses its military target, only to take out a Toys R’ Us store in the adjacent commercial block.
Which is to say that Andrew Savage, Communications Director for the Welch campaign, was not actually hospitalized for a “percussive gastric event,” as we reported in our BBQ round-up below.
That was a joke.
So please stop calling his house, and sending flowers to Fletcher Allen. VDB deeply regrets any pain or anxiety we may have caused Savage, his family, heirs or assignees.
