It pisses me off that fedoras have become this symbol of wack white boys, partially because they were originally popularized by women wearing it as a feminist symbol, but mostly because I look damn fine in a fedora.
Wack white boys ruin all kinds of shit, don’t know what else to tell u.
According to the story, when the commission issued a subpoena to a firm that was related to Cuomo, Cuomo’s aid contacted a commission co-chair and told him, “This is wrong” and then “Pull it back.” The commission then did.
Cuomo has already marked himself as the reform community’s biggest disappointment — grabbing reform headlines with an ethics commission that he then hobbled, and then teasing reformers with the promise that he would get public funding of elections passed — only then to sabotage that as well.
But this — if true — crosses a pretty important line. Many of us saw the tragedy of Eliot Spitzer as just that: a tragedy, because whatever demons led him to his wrongful and hypocritical act, they sapped America of an incredible force for change.
The corruption here is different — and much much worse. If an aid to the chief corruption reformer in NY has corruptly interfered with a corruption investigation, then NY doesn’t need that “corruption reformer” anymore — because that’s not what he is.
If this charge is true, then this is a governor who believes himself above the law. THAT is the keystone of corruption.
The Democrats had a chance this year to mark themselves as the party of reform (I hope not too much, or not too exclusively, because reform will only come if supported by Democrats, Republicans and Independents all, but movements need leaders, and it is good the Dems lead). But if this charge is true, then Cuomo destroys the party’s chances here. “Here’s a young, NY ‘reformer,’ in the tradition of not Teddy, but Tammany.”
If the charge is true, then Cuomo should go: as quickly as Spitzer did, for the hypocrisy here is worse, and so the party can get on to electing its next governor — hopefully this time, one honestly focused on reform.
Was refurb born with three legs? Or if he lost it, how did he lose it? I have a cat, and even though he has 4 legs, he is still pretty awesome😎🐱
When she was around 6 weeks old, she was trampled by a horse and abandoned at a shelter out in rural Minnesota. The Animal Humane Society was kind enough to patch her up, but were forced to remove her rear right leg in the process. Those are some good people, right there.
All in all, she recovered amazingly well and has no long-term health issues, and surprisingly few mobility issues.
There’s been interesting conversation in the corners of the blogosphere I inhabit recently about developer life and motivations for staying in it or leaving it, depending on one’s outlook. Ed Finkler kicked it off with the rather forebodingly titled “The Developer’s Dystopian Future,” in which…
I’m glad I’m not the only one. I saw the web page when Apple announced the new Mac Pro and said, “I can never do this.” I haven’t worked on a web project since.
The town of Inarajan, located on the southwest coast of Guam with a population of 3,052, flicked her long red hair out her eyes and sighed. People were always telling her she was beautiful, but she just didn’t see it. She examined herself in the mirror carefully. What was so beautiful about large violet eyes, long slender limbs, and the ruins of several colonial Spanish forts? Certainly she was nowhere near as lovely as her friends Tumon, a tourist hub featuring over 20 large hotels and a Duty Free Shoppers Galleria, or Andrea, who wore a C-cup.
Inarajan’s mother entered, her mouth tightened with disapproval. Inarajan’s mother did not understand her. It was as though they were from two different worlds: Inarajan was just a small coastal village, and her mother was an invasive species of brown tree snake from the Phillippines.
“It’s time,” said her mother.
“Must I?” said Inarajan.
“You must,” said her mother. She hesitated, and Inarajan thought she might say something to comfort her, but her mother merely shook her head and decimated Guam’s indigenous bird population.
