Pick a Lane

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.

Mischief or Menace

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.

Marching Orders

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!!

Ides of November

6″ of snow in Central Park. Heavy and horizontal. While. Bleachers going up for the parade. Hope next Thursday will be clearer. In the meantime, enjoy a Diego Rivera mural as Matt Weiner paints a gorgeous tableau about love. The Romanoff’s in Mexico City. Sweet vignettes. Best one yet.

And. Can easily buy guns and drugs online. Yet. Still can’t figure out how to vote. Sad.
