HERE ARE THE TRUE TALES THAT I AM DOING ON THE RADIO THIS WEEK. March 18, 2012.

**** New York City’s Department of Environmental Protection will offer $125 vouchers to homeowners and landlords who replace their water-guzzling toilets with models that use less than half the water. The rebate, which covers most of the cost of the typical toilet, is expected to pay for 800,000 new ones and to reduce water use by 3 percent a day, or 30 million gallons over all, city officials said. THIS PROGRAM WILL BE FILLED WITH GRAFT, CORRUPTION, PAYOFFS AND WHATEVER ELSE THE BAD PEOPLE CAN FIGURE OUT.

****Mayor Bloomberg made a visit to Goldman Sachs’ downtown Manhattan headquarters to deliver a pep talk to employees the day after a former executive ripped apart the storied investment bank in a scathing public resignation that went viral. IT WAS REVEALED THAT GOLDMAN SACHS RIPS OFF ITS CLIENTS. BLOOMBERG DOESN’T THINK ANYTHING IS WRONG WITH THAT?

**** A bigwig in the union that represents the NYPD civilian workers has been busted on charges of stealing union funds. Carlin Dawson, 37, recording secretary for Union Local 299 of DC-37 — which represents employees of the NYPD, was arrested by investigators from the Manhattan DA’s office. NOTICE THE COPS DID NOT ARREST THIS GUY. IT WAS DONE BY AN OUTSIDE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.

**** The Department of Transportation is giving out 2,000 free single-ride MetroCards and 3,000 $15 prepaid debit cards — which work in yellow cabs, some livery cabs and mass-transit systems, like the subways — to discourage drunken driving. HOW ABOUT PUTTING DRUNK DRIVERS IN JAIL AND TAKING AWAY THEIR VEHICLE FOREVER?

**** Three high-ranking cops who retired just before they got busted for allegedly making a teenager’s burglary charges disappear will get taxpayer-financed going-away presents as high as $450,000 — in addition to their generous pensions. SOMEONE SHOULD CALL A COP.

****We are on the Rocky Road to the Presidency.  Ask me for comments from the streets of New York City.  I can also explain how it all works.
