Good riddance to bad rubbish

New York’s Off Track Betting Corporation shuts down Friday, bankrupt. I dimly remember (1971) when this monstrosity began operations – it seemed like a bad idea then, and, it turns out, even a 17-year-old could know more than politicians. Of course, I wasn’t in on the take.

Uh oh

Thomas Keegan and GPD searching for beer-toting teens at Tod's Point, Greenwich Ct

I saw retired Lieutenant (I hope that’s his rank) Tommy Keegan today and he reminded me, as I well know, that it’s Keegan, not “Keagan”. Tommy’s my only friend on the force, so I want to keep that straight, and I’ve corrected my original misspelling of two days ago. Who the hell knew that the Irish could read? (Joke Tommy, joke – my great-grandfather was Irish!)

Your tax dollars at work

National Gallery is exhibiting a daring display of an ant-covered Jesus, two brothers performing fellatio and all the other usual stuff. As Bill Quick points out, if they were all that daring, they’d substitute Mohammed for Jesus. Oh, they’re brave, these people, but not that brave.

Railroad to nowhere

We’re talking cuts to Metro-North, while planning on spending hundreds of millions connecting New Haven to Hartford, or asshole to armpit, by rail.  Does this make sense? No.

Double dip coming in housing?

National averages mean little, but this might give you pause as a Greenwich buyer, and maybe a little incentive if you’re a seller.
