****A beached whaled died in Breezy Point. The whale washed ashore at Beach 216th Street & Palmer Drive in Queens. IS THIS UNUSUAL? HOW ABOUT SHARKS? NEW YORK CITY IS ACTUALLY SITTING IN THE OCEAN.
The publication of the names and addresses of handgun permit holders in two suburban New York counties has sparked outrage. The Journal News is a Gannett Co. newspaper covering Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties north of New York City. THE NEWSPAPER AND THE CHAIN IS A LIBERAL ENTERPRISE AND THEY MUST HAVE THOUGHT THIS WAS FAIR GAME.
****Vanessa Redgrave is in New York City doing a show and I saw her in Times Square. NOT BAD FOR AN OLD BROAD.
****"Credit scores are like the dating equivalent of a sexually transmitted disease test," according to a financial advisory firm. "It’s a shorthand way to get a sense of someone’s financial past the same way an S.T.D. test gives some information about a person’s sexual past." I RUN A CREDIT CHECK ON EVERYONE GETTING INTO THE TAXI AND THAT IS NO JOKE. THAT INFORMATION GOES DIRECTLY TO THE CREDIT BUREAUS WHO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING AND COMING.
****Shopping sites run by companies like Staples Home Depot show customers different prices and deals based on the zip code you live in. MY ZIP CODE IS 10021 WHICH IS JUST ABOUT THE RICHEST IN THE USA.
****Joke du Jour. Then guy had a big cavity in a tooth. (You can hear this joke by going to the Joke link higher up on this web page).
****Casper the pony and Razzi the zebra. Around 9:20 a.m., a man named Zachary Osher looked out the window of his store, Metropolitan Drape and Blind, a quarter-mile south on Victory Boulevard, and saw two hoofed animals trot by. Meanwhile in midtown Manhattan, there are camels that are in the cast of the Christmas show at Radio City Music Hall and they take morning constitutionals along 51st Street. YOU BETTER NOT WALK BAREFOOT IN THIS CITY.
****Starbucks has started selling a new specialty coffee that costs seven dollars for a "grande" cup, making it the company's most expensive cup of coffee. THE COST OF A TOY FOR A POOR KID WHO ISN'T GETTING ONE FOR CHRISTMAS.
****UN votes to recognize Palestinian state as Abbas says it's last chance to save 2-state solution. MEDIA SAYS JEWS IN NYC UNHAPPY AND MUSLIMS IN NYC HAPPY.
****Word of a settlement agreement between former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and a hotel maid who accused him of trying to rape her could bring an end to a saga that has tarnished Strauss-Kahn's reputation, ended his hopes for the French presidency and renewed a debate about the credibility of sexual assault accusers. HER REPUTATION WAS RUINED BECAUSE SHE WAS ACCUSED OF BEING PART OF THE NYC HOTEL INDUSTRY'S SEX SIDELINES.
**** "As cleanup continues, New York City finds itself with a seemingly endless load of debris and no easy place to store it. In the case of the 15,000 trees felled by the storm, at least, the wreckage can be recycled." FALSE. RATHER THAN GIVE THEM TO FOLKS WITH WORKING FIREPLACES OR STOVES, THEY ARE BEING THROWN INTO THE GARBAGE.
****A tourist's snapshot of a New York City police officer giving new boots to a barefoot homeless man in Times Square has created an online sensation. COP WAS CONNED. TOURIST WHO TOOK THE PICTURE WAS CONNED. SO WERE YOU CONNED.
