The Three Most Hateful Words

in the English language:

“In select cities”

After weeks of squirming in my seat with anticipation, I will NOT be seeing Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy this weekend because the 9th is the opening date for those despised three words only.  Pittsburgh has never been a Select City, and it never will be a Select City.  Not by any stretch of the imagination.

So instead I will just carry on torturing myself with this and beating my head against my desk.

    How is Edina, MN a Select City? Who’s deciding where Select resides?

    I don’t know. Maybe they have to be a city with a track record of good attendance at quality films? That’d rule us right out. No matter the process, I can vouch that the Select Cities Selection Committee have never once cast their approving gaze on this benighted place.
