9/11 Bill is Dead – Congress tells WTC Workers to Drop Dead

The EPA lied and said the air around the World Trade Center was fine. We all now know that was far from the truth. Members of the FDNY, NYPD and volunteers alike have developed serious and deadly health conditions as a result. The 9/11 Bill was supposed to provide $3.2 billion on health care over the next 10 years for sick workers. Additionally $4.2 billion would be provided to compensate victims and another $4.2 billion was to be provided 10 years down the line. Yes, it’s a ton of money but it was supposed to be paid by closing tax…

R.I.P. Boss – George Steinbrenner 1930-2010

Yesterday was a sad day for Yankees fans as George M. Steinbrenner III passed away after suffering a major heart attack in Tampa, Florida. He was 8o years old. Even the Yankees haters of the world respected the man. He spent and spent to put the best players he could find on the New York Yankees because he felt that’s what Yankees fans deserved. He even said that he didn’t like to pay as much as he did but it was necessary. Just like us he was not without his faults. He hired and fired 20 managers over his first…

Thank You David Lee

Good Luck in Golden State I was hoping that the Knicks would resign David Lee but unfortunately he’s no longer a part of the New York Knicks having been dealt to the Golden State Warriors in a sign and trade.  I just wanted to post to say thank you to David Lee. As a late first round pick in 2005 I watched him work hard and become better each year. Each year he became a better player by continuously working on his game. The Knicks in hope of signing Lebron James basically threw the last two seasons away but you…

$1 for MetroCards?!!!

$1 if you want a new MetroCard??  The Mass Transit Authority, of course, is in an $800 million dollar deficit. Things like this tend to happen when you spend a few hundred million on security cameras that don’t work. In an ingenious way to close the budget gap the MTA is proposing a $1 fee be charged for the purchase of MetroCards. In order to use public transportation in NYC you need a MetroCard. Of course it’s unclear if this $1 fee would be charged only on new MetroCards. Another idea from the ”brain” trust at the MTA also includes putting a…

I’m Quitting Smoking Cold Turkey

A few days ago I posted that cigarettes will now cost $11 a pack in New York City. I knew the law would go into effect on Thursday July 1st so I decided that I would not smoke another cigarette as of Wednesday July 30th. I’ve tried to quit in the past but realize now that it was always a half assed attempt. I would quit for a few days, have a bad day at work and there was my excuse to buy a pack and light up. I tried the patch but it made my heart race so I…
