Plane poop hits LI couple
Now that’s a crappy day.

“Some black liquid came off her face,” Hughes, of Malverne, told WINS radio. “I thought it was hydraulic fluid and then the policeman came down and said, ‘No I don’t think so. Looks like something nastier than that.’

port-a-potty pooper


february 17,2012

on today’s midday walk, ivan & i were accompanied by an 8 year old friend of ours, sammy.  as we rounded the corner from 1st to 51st street, sammy noticed the port-a-potty with windows and kept his eye on it as we passed by.

“there’s a man in there!  why is he in there?” sammy shrieked after seeing the man sitting inside the port-a-potty with windows.

me: “he’s working.  that’s his office and he works in there.”

sammy:  “how do you know he’s not pooping?”

update!

i guess i wasn’t the only one who thought banning westminster champs from sardi’s was a silly thing for the nyc department of health to enforce . . . (see last post here)  today’s post reports:

Malachy was served in a private room away from other diners. But The Post reported Thursday that the Health Department would force future winners to make do with a doggie bag instead. Health Department spokesman John Kelly says that it won’t.

Kelly said Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley will grant a one-day waiver to Sardi’s for next year’s champion.   ny post article

yay!

just following the rules!


according to the latest published reports (which haven’t been updated since 2007)  there are 1,275,000 obese people living in the city and over half a million living with diabetes (adults only!).  many thousands of kids are at risk for lead poisoning, live with rats and mold in their homes and go hungry on a regular basis.   among all nyc adults, 11.7% with current health insurance were without insurance at sometime during the past 12 months. 11.1% of nyc adults have needed but not gotten medical care during the past 12 months. 10.3% of nyc adults have not been able to fill a needed prescription during the past 12 months . . .  and, it’s perfectly legal for the owner of my apartment building to put 28 radioactive cell towers on the roof!

but this is what the nyc department of health chooses to focus on?

A New York tradition more than three decades old ended yesterday when the Health Department declared that starting next year, Sardi’s restaurant can no longer invite the winner of the Westminster Dog Show to a special dinner.  

“Our primary concern is making sure people and pets follow the doggone rules — ideally without whining or begging,” quipped city Health Department spokesman John Kelly.   ny post article
