City Club: "Gavels Are Overrated"

Posted By on Thu, Oct 19, 2006 at 3:51 PM

Gong Li: Also has no gavel.
The City Club of Cleveland may be banging its gong (and getting it on) again, but the gavel that went missing with the Asian percussion instrument is still MIA. But, like William Baldwin and that guy who drummed for Nirvana before they got famous, the gavel really doesn't matter. Spokeswoman Missy Toms suggests the City Club has already moved on: "The gong was the most important thing," she tells us. Memo to gavel thief: Just keep the damned thing. -- Michael Gallucci
