An expanded bike lane running up Central Park West has been approved. Displacing parking spaces. Oy. Whatta mess.
I’m in the not so cute camp. USA World Cup Women’s Soccer player Morgan sipping tea seemed like cheeky unsportsmanlike conduct.
The Bernie lane may have narrowed, but added together with Warren’s poll numbers, leftest lane is the widest.
Theme of the week. Bad behavior. Naughty or criminal?
Jussie Smollett the latter, rendering real victims’ voices silent. As with #metoo overreach, backlash will be longterm. Billionaires out of control. Bezos’ fling has taken his focus away from bizness. Super Bowl owner Bob Kraft has enough money to hire the classiest call girls in the world, yet goes to a strip mall for creepy massages with sex-trafficked enslaved girls. Miranda Lambert marries a cheating New York cop. Klobuchar really is mean it seems. And. Don’t even talk about R. Kelly.
A few of the week’s similarly untoward headlines. On to the Oscars. Meh.
Give it up for the NYC fireworks maestros. In the pouring rain.
Central Park at Midnight. Rocks it every year.
As always, lots to say. But. Hey. Tomorrow is a longer day.
Susan Chira. Women Don’t Think Alike
Kat Stoeffel. The Age of the MSNBC Mom
Maureen Dowd. Bill’s Belated #MeToo Moment

Pete Wells. Anthony Bourdain
It’s that time of year again. Bleachers banging and clanging until they’re up. San Remo and Langham building guys erect wooden barriers around their shrubs. Slanted boards across windows. No Parking Signs for 3 days. Sweepers screaming and cleaning. Tow trucks at dawn. Opening up the streets. Taking down the traffic lights. Room for the balloons. Metal gates sliding and gliding along the curbs. Ready for the Macy’s madness to descend upon the ‘hood.
If anybody comes this year. Forecast. Windy and cold. Even the Grinch may stay indoors.
So lucky our microwave is big enough for a 25-lb. frozen turkey!!
Today’s final pairing at Ridgewood, NJ. Keegan Bradley & Bryson DeChambeau. Why aren’t they constantly on the clock? As they painstakingly perseverate over lining up each shot, there’s plenty of time to take a long walk around the block.
Never know who or what you’ll see. A visiting star from the great beyond. Or. A guy shlepping his flea market furniture find home. Only in NYC!
