airedale1950 - So kind of you to provide education on polictical donations. What would we simpletons do without you...

The difference, of course, with Sen. McDonald is that he was the deciding vote. He was not a likely vote for same-sex marriage, yet he became a "principled" supporter after Mayor Bloomberg kicked in $10 grand to start, which was followed by many more donations, then voila! Senator Roy McDonald made history.

My point is that McDonald wasn't a SSM supporter before the quid pro quo vote, and he's not been a mouthpiece for gay causes since. Therefore he's a my opinion, of course.

If Senator McDonald had said No to the tens of thousands in cash given ahead of his vote, you might say his vote was principled. But he didn't.

He said Yes to the cash, and Yes to same-sex marriage. He wasn't a vocal supporter of same-sex marriage before the vote, and he's kept quiet since. Senator McDonald is a phony, and his constituents are not stupid.

Ed, thanks for the account of your hunt with the Gamo. I'm going to look into that. I've got a Chinese-made gun that is kind of crudely made, but works well. It fires .177 also at approx. 1,100 fps.

Should be interesting. "Teacher, I had my paper done, but the iPad was messed up: I didn't have a good wireless connection; I spilled soda on it..."

"We've done some soul-searching on this one, said Supt. Pat Green. The Supt. also argued for "tasteful use of Facebook and iTunes. Something tells me Pat Green is not a parent of teenagers, or is just incredibly naive.

Sheldon Silver brags that he doesn't drink, gamble, or carouse. But his pride is a mile high, and it has blinded him from knowing what's right or wrong.

By the time this investigation is done, he may find it's a good time to retire...

Sanctimonious Sheldon Silver. We all thought he was a solid rock, but he's as slippery as his colleagues. He got caught in a cover-up, using public money, and he doesn't like the feeling of squirming a little. Of course someone downline will take the blame, but still Sheldon Silver is squirming.

Correction - I said, "...the city sold the properties". I meant the city sold the debts for the properties to ATF.

The city knows which properties have been consistently not-for-profit, and the city would be right to fine the entities for failing to file papterwork on time. But these properties should not be handled the same as taxable properties. These non-profit owners are not guilty of not paying taxes, only not filing paperwork.

Irv - thanks for that info. It would be far worse than I thought...
