I Am A Man

The situation surrounding the sanitation workers has just been put off for a later date. Nothing will change in spite of the promises made by Janis Fullilove and the other members of the council. The proposed buyout is a sham. It's a trick to get the incumbent city councilman reelected that will never come to past. The city can't even submit a balanced budget. They still have to pay the schools $57M ordered by the court. We don't have the money for what I consider "reparations." It wouldn't be fair to offer a buyout now. The overwhelming majority of the guys working now never had to say " I am a man."

Should Not Have Resigned

Twenty years ago this issue would have never gotten off the ground. Rep. Anthony Weiner would have been just someone else getting his kicks and talking dirty over the phone. He never even touched the girl who caused all this trouble in the first place. Now we even have a former Wasn't that par for the course? In the days of social networking and camera phones nothing is above the radar these days. Every conversation and picture you've ever taken might end up in the wrong hands.

Weiner is the sacrificial lamb for the Democratic party. In the past it was the all accepting group. They welcomed Muslims,homosexuals and even convicted embezzlers.You can hide a $100,000 bribe in a freezer but you can't take a nude picture of yourself. I don't agree with either one but one is no worse than the other. Congressman Weiner shouldn't have resigned.
