STILL WORKING ON THE PORTRAIT OF DETECTIVE ANTHONY ABETEMARCO DUE TO NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND ANYONE ELSE TO DO IT FOR ME

.

There is, if any, little recognition for the effort one must put forth in crafting a decent likeness of, arguably, the Manhattan District Attorney’s best Detective. Nevertheless, it must be striven for if not ultimately accomplished, and so, I persevere.

“THIS IS THE DAY I DREAD EVERY DAY I’M ON THE JOB”

Don’t get me wrong, I think young people are swell, and have all kinds of interesting ideas and opinions on things that we should pretend to give a damn about. But, if, as I suspect, CBS.com has handed over the episode summary writing to some wet behind the ears, zit cream applying teenybopper heads are in need of rolling. I mean it. It’s unacceptable, and I know they know it. Enough said.

“Frank goes on high alert when a threat to New York City may be imminent following a terrorist attack in the Middle East”

Later, while in a meeting with Assistant District Attorney for Manhattan (who is also his daughter), Erin Reagan the following conversation regarding a suspected terrorist hideout takes place:

Commissioner Reagan: I think it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission on this one.

Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan: Dad, you are moving on one man’s uncorroborated story. What if you raid that apartment, kill three Muslims, and don’t find a single bomb on site? That’s a lot of backfire that you’re standing in front of.

Commissioner Reagan: When I consider the alternative, I’ll take that risk.
