Sidewalk salonistas wonder: Where in the world is Eric Johnson?

Sidewalk salonistas, 2010 The 6 am Tuesday gang of sidewalk salonistas at the Goodbye Blue Monday were floundering a bit this week.  Anchor Eric Johnson was out of town.

I’ve heard occasional objections over the past 5 years to my use of the term ‘salonistas.’ It’s a bit obscure, I admit, since the Urban Dictionary defines a salonista as “A person who wrote/worked for the online magazine Salon.com, especially during its heyday in the 1990s.”  It also has a more generic meaning: anyone who regularly attends a conversation salon AKA a literary salon.

I’m not sure what term they’d prefer. Gasbag geezers?
