When I was in Boulder, Colorado, last month, I bought a book by Neil Strauss.
Neil is a rock journalist who writes for The New York Times and Rolling Stone.
He says that the people who work for Cher say that if there was a nuclear explosion, only two species would survive : Cher and cockroaches.
I doubt if Cher’s staff have heard of Sepp Blatter of FIFA.
FIFA is not an organisation that runs world football.
It’s one man who runs world football. Very badly.
FIFA is Blatter and Blatter is FIFA.
Blatter proved his indestructibility by being re-elected unopposed. Given his previous machinations, I wasn’t super-surprised by that.
When I saw Blatter on TV, I felt sorry for all those reporters. There were over 50 reporters in the room at Fifa House and many were in their 20s and 30s, or so it seemed to me.
I thought : What a ghastly way for young men to be spending their time!
Waiting around for that horrible little twerp to come in and tell them what he is doing.
All those reporters have to write down what Blatter says and report it ? They have to film and record and broadcast Blatter’s drivel?
What an appalling job ! Is there a worse job? I can’t think of one.
