It's time to break-up New Rochelle..."Scarsdale Downs"?
(I can't remember the last time I went downtown...Was it when the RKO, Loews and Town theaters were in business? Showing my age...better quit while I'm ahead.) View Comment
Lassie was my favorite and really should have won an Oscar.
In a 1948 article that appeared in The New Yorker, Lillian Ross revealed that Lassie wasn't a female. Can you imagine Hollywood fooling us? It broke my heart....
Surprised? No: Our society is in a state of devolution. Have you noticed how less courteous, tolerant and patient we've become with each other? We're all hopped-up on internet speed, addicted to violent / sordid popular entertainment and fueled by poor eating habits -- which is all having a deleterious impact on all aspects of life these days. Absolutely shameful behavior! View Comment
Vinny: Thanks for this interesting factoid. It brought me back to grammar school when I did a report on the election of 1876. I didn't know that Governor Samuel J. Tilden (D, NY) once lived in nearby Yonkers.
For inquiring minds (and to fill in the gap), Mr. Tilden lost to Ohio governor, Rutherford B. Hayes, a former Union Army general, who served in the Civil War.
PS: What other major historical event occurred in Montana in 1876 involving another (somewhat infamous) Civil War general ? Pending...
Mr. Maisano quoting Voltaire: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”
Mr. Obama: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" (UN "Speech" 2012).
To our "constitutional scholar" president: Have you ever read Voltaire as an undergraduate at Columbia? And, did you teach the 1st Amendment when you were an "adjunct" at the University of Chicago?
To Mr. Maisano: Thank you for leading an important discussion and please consider running for mayor+.
I am sorry to say: We so desperately need leadership these days...on all levels. View Comment
Hopefully, the kids will abandon their computer games, DVDs or whatever else they're doing indoors (e.g. like doing homework assignments on 'global warming') and get out and enjoy this special gift from Mother Nature.
Tasteless and moronic -- am I referring to the theme of this dumb movie? Or the dumb Hollywood liberal elite that made it? Or both? Take your pick.
And, for a Christmas movie, watch the classic "It's a Wonderful Life." And, if it were remade today, Hollywood would title it: "It's a Dysfunctional Life" - a subject they're expert at producing and exporting. View Comment
Question: Why wasn't this disclosed prior to the election?
Answer: Mr. Latimer stole this (election) play right out of the "Obama playbook."
We owe a debt of gratitude to those hardworking investigative journalists and the media for doing an excellent job in helping this deadbeat Dem get re-elected (w/o scrutiny).
Here's another reason why this phony's book isn't selling:
From Reuters (12/15 in AM):
"Manufacturing activity in New York state contracted for the first time in nearly two years, a New York Federal Reserve survey showed on Monday.
The New York Fed's Empire State general business conditions index fell to -3.58 in December from November's 10.16 reading, falling to negative territory for the first time since January 2013"
Remember all those nauseating commercials on TV about NY State being a great place to do business? Enough said...
