So, thanks to (a tragic) incident upstate a few years ago, the Binney Park fireworks are now aimed down our creek, and we get a great, great show (our two cats don’t appreciate it and have fled to the attic, but you can’t please everyone).
Binney has now concluded, so I’ll direct my gaze south and catch the Tod’s Point display. What a cool place to live . Best part? Listening to the squeals of delight of small kids up and down the creek exclaiming at the show. Neat.
Federal judge doesn’t seem impressed with Picard’s theory of Madoff liability for the Wilpons. I’ll concede I’m a legal dummy, but I never thought much of this case. Good – maybe we can keep Reyes now.
The indicted slimeball owner of WGCH is asking $1.25 million for the radio station he ruined. I’m sure he could use some bucks for his legal defense and commissary expenses later, but a million bucks for “Polka Night Saturday”? Give me an effin’ break.
The NY Post reports that the DSK maid was assigned by the Hotel Workers Union to work as a prostitute.Interesting job assignment, interesting union.
Washington state closes tourism office. In this Internet age, is there any possible reason tourists need state employees to steer them around on a visit? Multiply Washington’s savings by fifty, and you’re talking some real money.
Oh geeze, come on! A large sale in Belle Haven, and I’m delighted at Joe Barbeieri’s good fortune, but this lady is speaking from her bottom:
“This record-setting sale aligns with what we’re experiencing in Greenwich, which is that high-end buyers are returning to the market, and they are acting on special opportunities such as the Hascoe family estate,” Kathy Korte, president and chief executive officer of Sotheby’s International, said in a statement.
SoCal legislator wants to secede. My guess is that no one wants any part of Los Angeles, and who can blame them?

As delicious as the Fjord Fisherie’s smoked marlin, to my taste, but I like catching my own. And besides, I haven’t seen a marlin around here in years.
