Some Ponzi schemer doing twenty years is telling all about supplying University of Miami football players and coaches with booze, prostitutes and cash. What the hell was I thinking, majoring in Philosophy? For that matter, how come God grew me to just 5′ 10″?

One of the toughest guys I know, a retired cop and I both jump to defend a gay politician ( I know that some readers misunderstood me, but that’s okay) and isn’t that an interesting phenomenon? Maybe Greenwich isn’t the rest of the country, but I do believe we as a country have come a long way towards tolerance, and a politician who doesn’t get that risks being left behind. There are more important issues to deal with – picking on someone because of who he loves is so entirely irrelevant.
Congressman Himes urges us to prepare for disaster. (My original post led to my email – a reader, Edgewater, has thoughtfully provided a safer, to me, link) The FBI will add anyone who does so to its potential terrorist list. My response is to buy more ammunition and fuck the FBI, but the choice is up to you. I wonder what the FBI’s position is on incandescent bulb hoarders?
Blodget hates the Google/Motorola deal. I agree with him (but if we’re so smart, how come we didn’t invent Google?) but do any of you remember when the Wall Street Journal lauded Motorola as the best run company in the world? That was a decade or so ago, but what the hell happened?
“Today Host too busy to do squat”. Great headline, but I’m with the lady. She paid $2.9 million for a place on 71st Street and began renovating it but stopped after neighbors sued her, again and again. So now the place is empty, squatters have moved in, and the neighbors don’t like that, either. I say, screw the neighbors and cheers for the hobos.
