    one man's opinion.....
    Embattled NY Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez, facing the threat of a lifetime ban from baseball, and the loss of some $100 million left on his contract, just held an emotional press conference to announce that he was in fact transgendered, and was taking drugs supplied to him by Tony Bosch of Biogenesis, to prepare for a sex change operation after the season.
  • Woman Falls 17 Stories to Her Death; AP Implies She Deserved It

    Every urbanite’s worst nightmare came true for one New Yorker this week: Jennifer Rosoff, leaning against the railing on the balcony of her Upper East Side apartment, suddenly fell 17 stories to her death after the railing gave way. This is obviously horrifying and tragic. Rosoff was a media executive with stints at The New Yorker and Cosmopolitan on her resume. It’s outrageous that the owners of her building were so remiss in their balcony inspection duties. But if you skimmed the beginning of the Associated Press’s account of Rosoff’s accidental death, you wouldn’t get much information about Rosoff’s promising...
  • Anthony Weiner's wife Huma Abedin steps out for haircut, trip to the spa

    If anyone deserves a spa day, it's Anthony Weiner’s wife. The long-suffering Huma Abedin — who has kept a low profile since her husband’s latest sexting scandal broke — emerged from seclusion on Thursday and headed to the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa on Fifth Avenue. Ever the city girl, the stylish Abedin — clad in a belted shirt dress and cream cardigan — hopped the 6 train uptown for her day of pampering at the iconic spa. "I'm just getting my hair cut,” she told The News. Despite the strain of the scandal, Abedin showed no signs of stress....
  • WEINER SHOULD SAY: ‘I’LL QUIT WHEN YOU APOLOGIZE TO BROADDRICK AND WILLEY’

    My unsolicited advice to Anthony Weiner is to drop out of the race for mayor of New York City. But since you insist on staying, hold a press conference: My fellow New Yorkers,The New York Times, among others, tells me to quit the race. Here’s my proposition. I’ll resign when the Times poses this question. In the upcoming NBC-produced miniseries called “Hillary,” who will play Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey? What, confused expressions? Interesting how the Weiner-get-out crowd forgets that “everybody lies about sex” — except when it comes to politicians whose last name is not Clinton. Digital First Media,...

    Graft: The relationship between the Clintons and the wife of embattled Anthony Weiner grows curiouser and curiouser. Forget sexting; this may be the real scandal. And one senator sees a possible criminal element to it. Republican Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is demanding documents from the State Department shedding more light on the private consulting work that Huma Abedin, aka Mrs. Weiner, performed while working for the government, where she had access to top secret information. Abedin served as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's deputy chief of staff, where she earned $135,000 a year. But...

    When Michele Bachmann picked on Huma Abedin a year ago — claiming she had some convoluted connection to the Muslim Brotherhood — there was a rush to defend the longtime Hillary Clinton aide. The Minnesota congresswoman quickly got a scolding from House Speaker John Boehner, Sen. John McCain, House Intelligence Committee chair Mile Rogers. But now that her husband, Anthony Weiner, is running for New York City mayor, the attacks on Abedin aren't so ridiculous, and Abedin herself is not quite so untouchable.

  • Appeals court rules against NYC soda ban

    07/30/2013 7:31:44 PM PDT · by matt04 · 10 replies
    Another court ruling has taken the fizz out of New York City's ban on big, sugary sodas. A New York appeals court on Tuesday ruled that the city Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants. "The Board of Health overstepped the boundaries of its lawfully delegated authority," the court said in its decision. The state Supreme Court Appellate Division, with its opinion, upheld an earlier ruling that stopped the ban from taking effect in March. The rule would stop many eateries from...

    This year's bad news for MSNBC has only gotten worse. The "Lean Forward" network has struggled in the ratings since the Boston Marathon bombings exposed the network's glaring weakness when it comes to news gathering. MSNBC had hoped to turn that around by going all-in on with the Zimmerman, but it didn't. Compared to last year in July, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -4% in the 25-54 demo. "Morning Joe" lost -4% of its viewers, -8% in the 25 to 54 demo. Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O'Donnell all took huge hits over last year. Hayes...

    Wannabe Mayor Weiner is too sex obsessed to be mayor, according to his latest virtual gal pal. In a raunchy tell-all interview with Howard Stern, Anthony Weiner’s former virtual gal pal Sydney Leathers says the peter-tweeting poll used to call her up to five times a day – and almost every day – to have phone sex. And that still wasn’t enough! “He could have 12 girls talking to him, beating off 15 times a day and that wouldn’t be enough,” Leathers said. “You would think his d–k would hurt by the end of it.” Leathers questioned if Weiner’s obsession...

    …the way much of it has now turned on Weiner? That’s the question asked by a commenter at this post about The New Yorker’s new cover mocking Weiner. My answer, in a nutshell, is no. After all, there is no real cost to turning on Weiner. The election is not a national event. No one seemed to like Weiner all that much to begin with; perhaps the only people getting thrills up the leg about him might have been a few of his sext partners. Weiner’s misbehavior was sexual and simple to conceptualize, and most especially it was not political...

    Mayor Bloomberg's attempt to prohibit certain large sugary drinks from being sold by certain city purveyors was dealt a blow this morning when an appellate court upheld a previous decision — by a judge named Milton Tingling, you may recall — striking down the ban. Both Bloomberg and Health Commissioner Thomas Farley had said in May they were "confident" that Tingling's ruling would be overturned. The case can still be appealed to the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court. DaIn a unanimous decision, the court declared today that the ban "violated the state principle of separation of powers," Reuters...
