As always, you can count on some good, clean, funny insights from me because I am a street wise guy who drives a yellow mobile conveyance lounge.


****Two TSA officers were busted for stealing $40,000 from a bag at Kennedy Airport, a law enforcement source said. Under questioning, the pair also admitted swiping up to $160,000 from other unsuspecting passengers. JFK HAS BEEN CALLED THE MOST CROOKED AIRPORT IN THE NATION, THIS LITTLE STORY SHOWS WHY YOU TOO MAY MISS SOMETHING WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR SUITCASE AT THE HOTEL.


****More than 600,000 people were stopped and questioned by police last year - the highest number since the NYPD began releasing the data in 2002. WHAT THEY DIDN’T PUBLISH IS THAT MOST STOPS WERE DONE TO COLORED PEOPLE BY COLORED COPS.


****Locals have complained that they've spotted people engaging in sex acts on a bench in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza. But this is no ordinary bench: it was owned by longtime resident Katharine Hepburn, and donated by her estate. And these were no ordinary sex acts: they were afternoon delights! MY NEIGHBORHOOD AND SO I AM ON THE WAY OVER THERE WITH SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED.


****Carmelo Kiyan Anthony (born May 29, 1984), nicknamed "Melo", is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the New York Knicks in the National Basketball Association. MOST NEW YORKERS DO NOT CARE BECAUSE GOING TO A GAME AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN IS JUST SO IMPOSSIBLE.


****The cigarettes Audrey Silk used to smoke — Parliament Lights — are made at a factory in Richmond, Va. The cigarettes she smokes these days are made and grown in Brooklyn, at her house. Ms. Silk, a retired police officer and the founder of a smokers’ rights group, grows her own tobacco and dries the leaves in her basement. THIS IS JUST ONE STORY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT MANY NEW YORKERS ARE DOING BECAUSE OF THE PRICE OF CIGARETTES.
