  1. I think it's time to accept the fact that these kids are looking for the shortest and most efficient path to the NBA, and I don't blame them - the halcyon days of Lew Alcindor, Bill Walton, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, etc. etc. etc. are over, I'm afraid - it's only fair (who are we to deny these kids their wealth and fame before they get injured?), but a part of my youth has gone away. That said, there's LeBron James.
  2. If you don't know about what's going on with Brian Williams yet, just search for his name on the internet. Could this news anchorman actually get away with a lie of this magnitude and still keep his job? It's on *Page B10* of today's New York Times! The Washington Post gets big credit in my eyes for putting it on Page A1 which is exactly where it should be. This "conflation of aircraft" is not some personal affair in his private life; it is directly relevant to his job as news anchor at NBC, and should be treated as such. I see it as an unrecoverable lie. Many of us have "inserted ourselves" at events to make for a better cocktail party story (it's a common psychological phenomenon), but not so many of us have continued the lie for 12 years on national TV, and have involved our nation's soldiers in the lie. Here he is on The David Letterman Show in 2013, where an astounded Letterman calls him a "war hero" because his helicopter was hit with an RPG (the problem being, that it wasn't). The stories go on, and on, and on: "NBC's Brian Williams Admits His Helicopter Took No Fire In Iraq" on npr.org "Brian Williams' Apology Is Under Fire" by Ann Oldenburg on usatoday.com "Brian Williams Recants Story About Being Shot Down In Iraq" by Eliana Dockterman on time.com "Can NBC News Have Any Credibility With Brian Williams As Its Face?" by David Zurawick on baltimoresun.com "Brian Williams Should Resign For 'Conflating'" by Clarice Feldman on americanthinker.com "Brian Williams Even Said 'I Thought I Was Going To Die' In Chopper Attack" by Evan McMurry on mediaite.com
  3. Noted chocolate fanatic "Scott" of dallasfood.org fame alleges in a series of exposés that from inception through 2009, the Masts were peddling remelted commercial bars as their own bean-to-bar products. At that point, having established momentum, the Brooklyn-based hipsters apparently tried to make a shift to legitimate in-house production from bean-to-bar, with disappointing results. It is unclear what goes into their current bars, but their labeling has shed most of its origin information, leaving behind a disputable company history. What kind of people would have the audacity to start another Noka-type fraud, post-Noka? "Celebrity Hipsters Reportedly Sold Remelted Commercial Chocolate" by Tony Cenicola on vanityfair.com
  4. Summary: 1) Empire Merchants (a wine distributor) donated $33,000 to Sen. Jeff Klein's re-election campaign. 2) Empire Merchants is pushing a bill, which was authored by Jeff Klein, that would benefit almost exclusively them. How? 1) The bill requires that all wine sold in New York is warehoused in New York for at least one day 2) Empire Merchants has their warehouses in New York 3) Almost all other competitors have their warehouses in New Jersey with its lower costs 4) These competitors will now have to make arrangements to store their wines in New York for one day 5) The estimated consumer effect is that wine prices will be raised up to $7 a bottle Here is the New York Post article. For $33,000, Empire Merchants gets to try and drive their competitors out of business. Courtesy of Senator Jeff Klein, author of the "At Rest" bill. Is this a de facto bribe? Is it a payback? Or ... is this just good, honest lawmaking? Decide for yourselves.
