Looks like Tesei whumps Lavery by 60/40 or more. Interestingly, Drew Marzulla is ahead of his running mate so he’ll take her seat on the Board of Selectmen. Oh well, it’s not like it pays anything, like our tax collector position does. I can find no word on who’s ahead on that one.

Putin demands Soviet film makers succeed in the west. “All for most glorious triumph of communism over capitalism. Do we not win awards at same festivals this Mikael Moore does? Does not Hugo Chavez weep when he sees “Girl chasing Imperialistic Tiger with broom of the Proletariat”? We needs must only show these fine arts works to Americans to prove our worth. Where is that Peter Brant stooge? He will help, da?”
So says Bill Clark – from $0.50 to $0.75 to $1.00, all in just a few months. I wouldn’t buy it at fifty cents so I guess I’m saving twice as much now but judging from its on-line content, it doesn’t seem to be twice as good as before. Quite the contrary, now that the paper is down to one reporter and the almost-retired but still loveable nonogenarian, Bernie Yudain.
On the other hand, Peter Pervert was complaining in court the other day that his newsprint business was down, so perhaps this is Greenwich Time’s sly effort to subsidize the little fella and ensure that he keeps gracing Greenwich with novelty art like Santa with Butt Plug. I think I’ll keep my money home.
Because no banker qualified to lead Bank of America (seems like a low enough hurdle to me) is willing to relocate to Charlotte, North Carolina the bank is now offering to permit him or her to be based in New York. Hey, if that person like New Jersey then, as a reader comments below, perhaps I can sell him 15 Lia Fail – it may have the Jersey look, but taxes are a tenth of theirs.
UPDATE: I jut located Charlotte on the map and it seems to be located precisely in the middle of nowhere. How did Bank of America find its way there?
My vote goes to this house, 15 Lia Fail in (gasp!) Cos Cob. I mentioned it awhile ago but I’ve been soft pedaling it while I brought it to the attention of a couple of my own clients. They didn’t bite (too big for one, beyond stretching range, the other), so here it is again. It’s on over two acres, bordered by conservation land and in the nicest neighborhood in Cos Cob in my opinion. The house is in fabulous condition -one client asked if it were new and it comes with a pool and a separate guesthouse.
The owners paid $1.8 million for it in 1999, added on to it in 2002 and renovated it in 2007. They priced it at $2.850 in 2008 and it didn’t sell. It’s back on now at $2.225 and offers more house, on better land and a better location than anything else in its price range I am aware of. I think it’s a great deal. Assessment is $1.929, and in this case, the house should command a premium over that.
