But here’s happy news

Fountain peasants do their thing

My Ma’s memorial celebration will be held this Saturday at the Riverside Yacht Club from 1-3:30 (but you’ll have to clear out then to make way for the club’s new money-raiser, a Kentucky Derby party). All are welcome.

PETA victims

PETA victims

NY judge recognizes chimpanzees as legally protected individuals. Not just living creatures protected by animal abuse laws, mind you, but as beings with the same rights as humans. This is all about, ultimately, banning the use of animals for drug testing. I’d have no objection if we could test new cancer cures on PETA members – it would speed up development by at least a decade, but so far, I’m not seeing any volunteers from their ranks.  Instead, PETA and its allies just seem to want all of us, humans and animals, to die in a state of equality: “A rat is a pig is a dog is a boy”. That’s PETA’s position, and shame on anyone who sends even a nickel their way.

It may take a few years, but this can ultimately only be good for Greenwich real estate values

Back to the future

Back to the future

NYC proposes decriminalizing “minor” crimes, such as urinating in the street, and drinking alcohol in public. I’m sure the squeegee bums will soon be returning to the intersections.

I really don’t understand New York’s city counsel – don’t they want to protect the residents, especially the poorer ones? Folks in the projects are subjected to the worst crime, the most deplorable conditions in the city, yet their representatives insist on encouraging the worsening of lawlessness in those areas. Bizarre.

This is pretty goddamn nice of them

Everyone in the Youngman's pool!

Everyone in the Youngman’s pool!

Byram Park pool closed for summer. Junior League members to open their private pools to residents.

Or at least, I assume they will.

Reagan gradually forgot what he once knew – today’s college students don’t know anything to forget

Students don’t recognize Reagan. Exactly how far back in history do their high school and college classes reach? On the brighter side, I’ll bet most of these kids were among the 17 million Americans who tuned in Friday night to watch Bruce Jenner explain why he’s feeling girlish.
