Bronx wisdom

Okay, maybe Yankees fans aren’t that dense after all

Via Overheard in New York

Yankee fan #1: What do you like better — hot dogs or hamburgers?
Yankee fan #2: I like ‘em both, man.
Yankee fan #1: You can’t like ‘em both! Hot dogs and hamburgers are mortal enemies, asshole. Everyone knows that!

Stupidity Abounds

This whole Pace-“hate crime” story reeks of stupidity all around

First off the actions of the student weren’t that bright to begin with.

Second, the fact that this case was referred to the NYPD, where as it should’ve been handled as an internal (university matter).

Third, the fact that the DA is considering pressing felony charges over this whole thing?  Again, this should’ve been resolved through the University’s “judicial system”.

None of these things seem to have been too thought out, and the time should be taken to reconsider.

On a side note, the outrage at LGF over the accused’ name and picture being published in the local media, is a bit over the top.  If anything, the media were doing their job in reporting the story.  It’s doubtful that any of the considerations raised at LGF were even consdiered.

Suggestion: Private Plane

One would think that with the money that the Royals have from oil revenue, they may want to use a private plane to prevent problems like this:

Arab princesses kicked off British Airways plane to jeers and whistles after refusing to sit next to male strangers

That would’ve made things so much easier–no?

Secondary question: If these princesses wear traditional Arab dress, what were they shopping for in Milan?

Still hobbling

Went to the doctor….he advised some X-Rays and a consult with a sports medicine doctor.

He also mentioned that I should go out and buy new shoes.  Shoe shopping—yuck!

The steamroller that couldn’t

The more revelations coming out about Spitzer’s aodes
sending the State Police after Senate leader Bruno–makes Spitzer’s campaign promises of being a “Reformer” ain Albany seem kaput.

Not that Bruno or any of the other Albany long-timers are above criticism themselves–in fact the opposite is just the case.

However, this kind of behavior coming from the AG turned Governor notorious for going after Wall Street Executives for similar transgressions smacks of hypocrisy and undermines his campaign and platform.

Eh…it’s Albany as usual.
