I Bet They Would Have Preferred Subway Passes
Edward Cardinal Egan of New York is criticizing Hizzoner Michael Bloomberg for spending $1.5 million public funds to hand out 26 million condoms on the streets of the Big Apple.
"Our political leaders fail to protect the moral tone of our community when they encourage inappropriate sexual activity by blanketing our neighborhoods with condoms," the statement continued.
"The taxpayers' money that is being spent to distribute condoms and promote the
attitude that 'anything goes' would be far better spent in fostering what is true and what is decent," they said.
If the purpose was to "save lives," I think the money could have better been spent by handing out 26 million copies of "The Thrill of the Chaste." My two cents . . .
Yeah, He's a Joke, All Right
His friends say Broward Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin could have been a stand-up comedian and should have been the first judge to preside over The People's Court on TV.But he shocked many television viewers who watched as the robed Seidlin, leaning back in his chair in chambers, pronounced that Anna Nicole Smith's "body belongs to me now" and "that baby is in a cold, cold storage room."
I could not believe the whiny, petulant sound bite I heard coming from the judge overseeing what will be done with the remains of Anna Nichole Smith. "I need help . . . I need guidance . . ."
You want guidance? Shut up talking about the boring details of your life, remember that you are dealing with the remains of a human being, and make a friggin' decision without wasting any more time in front of the cameras. If you want my personal advice: the next-of-kin gets the body, who is Anna's baby daughter, and whose parent, until otherwise shown, and who has the most rational argument, that of course a mother would want to be buried next to her son. Thank you, we can all go home now . . . if you don't like the decision, go get a writ.
According to feng shui experts, Sunday's Chinese New Year that marks the start of the Year of the Pig brings bad news.
Sunday marks the start of the Chinese New Year and it's a lucky one for those starting out in life. But the rest of us are in for a rough ride. Expect epidemics, disasters and violence in much of the world.
Is that all? When you think about it, ain't much different from last year. Or the year before that. Or the year before the year before . . . But there is always some room for levity:
Ronald Reagan was a pig. So are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Woody Allen and Elton John. Not to mention Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Heh, heh, yessssssssss . . .
