Small world

Yesterday's post about Portland's recent publicity in The New York Times prompted a reader to point us to an opinion piece in today's edition (for paid subscribers only), about the pending replacement of Shea Stadium in New York with something to be called Citi Field. One of the descendants of the late William A. Shea, who brought National League baseball back to the Big Apple in 1961 with the Metropolitans (a.k.a. the Mets), was quoted in the article:

If Citigroup money helps the team, then “it’s absolutely fantastic,” said Kathy Shea Anfuso, a daughter of William Shea. Much the same was said by a grandson, F. Scott Shea. As for the fading of the family name, so be it. “How can you be grumpy about something that’s been so fabulous for 40 years, 45 years?” Ms. Anfuso, who lives in Portland, Ore., said by phone.
Since it was in a New York paper, please pronounce it "Are-a-gone."
