Sir Jackie Stewart (egotist) on Ayrton Senna

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel <<< The air is comfortable as I sit on what my wife and I call the wifi bench at Palisade and 48th, Union City, New Jersey.  It’s hazy, and a weather report is not needed to know the day will be hot.  Maybe the strongest theme in my blogging is loss of status.  The meaning of status is circumstantial, and the best celebrity account of loss of status is given unintentionally by Jackie Stewart when he described his strongest memory of Ayrton Senna for Christopher Hilton.  In the text Jackie Stewart tries to declare higher status than Ayrton in at least three ways: ONE: Stewart tries to recall the championship count relative to Ayrton’s at the time of the interview  TWO: Stewart declares his employer is the, “most important sports news station in the world”  THREE: Stewart distinguishes himself from the press corps.  All three of these status-claiming attempts were made by Stewart, and each shows a grande ego fracturing from being stuffed into a smaller space.  Stewart’s words are also the only negative account of Ayrton in the book.  Is Stewart an egotist or was he suffering from a mild and temporary adjustment disorder?  I predict the former, and today Stewart could be found surrounded by his trophies with a PA assigned to give notice to writers who omit the, “Sir” when referring to Sir Jackie Stewart. >>> about me, 866-610-7920, 201-490-9659 use as an email address to comment without posting your email address, or login to gmail with password: anonymous123
