Coinsistency is the key
Tax hikes? Isn’t this City taxed enough already?!?!?
Obama tells the truth: ‘Recovery will take years, not months”
TGIF! I’m spent from a long and bizzare week at work, Off to catch some zzzzz’s
Just saw this one oin Drudge:
The big question is obviously–will City Council go along with it?
From the article:
Sources say expect fewer cops, firefighters and sanitation workers.
* New taxes and fees, including more taxes on clothing, a fee for plastic shopping bags in grocery stores and higher fees for lots of other city services.
Good thing I have my hand Trader Joe’s reusable bags….but higher fees?
* City employees will be asked to pay part of their healthcare costs.
Long overdue (imho)
This should be interesting……
Yes…that’s the headline.
Forget the City’s budget deficit. The loss of jobs. The increase in petty crime.
No…according to the nanny in chief, I mean Mayor…the biggest issue facing NYC right now is salt!
Look–if people want to buy crappy, high-sodium pre-packaged food, and consume it–let them. It’s their choice! (Ain’t that a novel concept?)
My idea: rather than spending all this money on an anti-salt crusade…why not apply the funds (if they’rw to be spent at all) to increasing police activity to prevent quality of life problems?
It’s still grossly overpriced.
Just in case why many a NYCer has such distrust and dislike for the MTA…it’s things like this:
After a 5530 million renovation….they didn’t design the platform properly?!?!?
Does this picture from today’s Post just scream “photoshopped?”
Time for some science!
As if there wern’t enough already:
I’m sticking with my whole foods thank you very much.
Brandeis is set to shut The Rose Art Museum which sits on its campus.
During my years at Brandeis, I think I only went in there 3 or 4 times.
(I’m not big on Modern Art)
Where’s the action in this year’s 24? The past two episodes have been rather slow and action-free….most dissapointing.
Thankfully, today was a lot easier at work then the past two weeks had been.
Nothing too exciting in the news for me to comment on.
Plus it’s time for 24!
I had no sympathy for Kate Winslet’s character “Hannah” as the movie progressed. Once her past was revealed, any and all sympathy which I had was straight out the window. Then again, perhaps being Jewish diddn’t necessarily make me the target audience.
Nor did i like how they portrayed the Survivor towards the final part of the movie. She came off looking as overly snooty and uptight–palying a bit too much into some of the stereotypes which people hold.
The film didn’t strike me as being of the quality needed for a “best picture” nomination either, but heck–I’m definitely not the Academy.
Just got back from seeing the movie “The Reader” with The Cousin.
I’m really not sure what exactly to make of the movie. Nor did I see anything special about Kate Winslet’s performance.
More thoughts tomorrow….
From the AP Wire: Top chefs push Obama to improve food policy
So Obama is a foodie–which is a good or bad thing depending on how one views foodies.
Unfortunately, Congress is less interested in educating the public about healthy eating and instead Corporate interests heavily influence food and farm policies. Just look at corn and soybeans!
It would be a step in the right direction if a message was sent promoting foods that are as close to their original state as possible (e.g. fruits, veggies, un-processed fish, poultry and meat…)
I was never good at the verbal part of standardized tests, so help me out here
