Apparently, the New York Times and writer Allen Salkin want us to feel the pain of the Wall Street crowd who while taking billions in taxpayer money might have to just make do on $500K a year. Apparently the NYT would like us to know that would entail putting their kids in public schools, buying a MetroPass and riding PATH trains, giving up chauffeured limos with drivers with guns. Apparently they have a lifestyle they are used to and we should feel bad for them. Look, do you know what we do to welfare recipients in America? We make them get time sheets signed off on for 15 minute intervals by a supervisor at whatever job the governments tells them they must have. We drug test them, we do home inspections. We should be doing the same to these Wall Street assholes. Welfare recipients aren't the ones who landed us in the recession, these poor spoiled brat Wall Street bankers are. Required reading here.
A drunken Jersey City cop, one Martin Abreu, represented his city by mowing down a group of pedestrians, killing one, Saturday night. Abreu has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and assault and driving while intoxicated while killing Marilyn Feng. Tell ya what New York, you can keep him locked up over there, we don't ever want him back. Throw the book at him.
Star-Ledger columnist Mark Diionno thinks the Garden State should start charging New York City for improving their air quality with that syrupy smell. We heartily agree.
Finally, later this afternoon, the Stanley Cup CHAMPION Detroit Red Wings head back to Pittsburgh to take on Cindy Crosby and the small potatoes Penguins. Johnny wonders if anyone around New Jersey and New York realizes the favor the Wings did for all of hockey to keep Crosby from the cup. If you think the NHL's pandering to him now is bad, imagine if they'd found a way to get Sid the 'pissy pants' Kid the cup like they tried to do last season. You KNOW you tried to get him the cup Gary Bettman, EPIC FAIL.
