HERE ARE THE TRUE TALES THAT I AM DOING ON THE RADIO THIS WEEK. October 26, 2014

(You will be able to see all my cartoon adventures by going to the STRIP.

True Tales for this Week....

****The Ebola epidemic has migrated online, where cybercriminals are using the virus to infect more people with malware. The United States Computer Readiness Team, a division of the Department of Homeland Security, issued an advisory warning users about spam campaigns that use the Ebola virus to bait users into clicking on malicious web links or attachments. One email purporting to be from the World Health Organization included a bogus file that claimed to include Ebola safety tips. Once downloaded, the file dropped a program onto the victim's machine that evaded antivirus defenses. ALSO, BEWARE OF THE "CHARITY" ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE COLLECTING MONEY FOR THE VICTIMS IN AFRICA. RIGHT NOW, THERE ARE FORTY "CHARITY" ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE BEING CHASED BY THE STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL.



****Because of Diwali, alternate-side street-cleaning regulations were suspended in New York City on Thursday. Diwali (Divali, Dipawali, Deepavali, Dipabali) is a festival of lights and is a holiday in India. Followers of Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism observe various customs related to Diwali. WITH 170 LANGUAGES SPOKEN IN NYC AND ALMOST THAT MANY RELIGIONS IS IT ANY WONDER THAT A DRIVER CAN GO NUTS TRYING TO KEEP TRACK OF WHEN IT IS OK TO PARK AND WHEN IT ISN'T?



****Workers of Bio Recovery Corporation loaded barrels into a truck on Friday evening after taking them from the apartment building of Dr. Craig Spencer on West 147th Street in Harlem. I THINK THE DOCTOR SHOULD GET THE BILL FOR THE CLEANUP AT BOWING ALLEY, HIS APARTMENT HOUSE, THE SUBWAY SYSTEM, THE HIGHLINE, AND THE HAMBURGER PLACE HE WENT TO EAT. HE IS A BIG SCHMUCK.


****There are three controlled lakes, which can be used to feed the NYC water supply. They have the capacity to hold approximately 580 billion gallons of water.  9.4 million people depend on them when they turn on their taps. It is the New York City watershed, where rainwater and snowmelt make a three-month journey through gravity-powered aqueducts stretching more than 100 miles from the Catskills to the edges of New York City. The modern-day system was constructed in the 1940s, '50s and '60s, as low-lying upstate farms and small towns were flooded to create reservoirs. From there, the water is channeled into underground aqueducts that are considered engineering marvels. The water is then held in smaller reservoirs and finally distributed through huge pipes that feed the five boroughs. NO NEED FOR BOTTLED SPRING WATER IN THIS TOWN.

****As part of its ongoing Ebola preparation efforts, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has updated its existing protocols for cleaning potentially infectious waste, such as bodily fluids, throughout the subway system. FINALLY, THE SUBWAYS WILL BE CLEAN.

****Corpus Christi Church, the church he attended and often targeted with his biting humor, opposed naming the block that it shares with George Carlin's boyhood home. The late comedian grew up on West 121st Street between Broadway and Amsterdam in Morningside Heights. Carlin often referenced the neighborhood in his many books, television specials and albums. During a special ceremony Wednesday afternoon, a sign went up on the block naming it "George Carlin Way."  GEORGE GOT THE LAST LAUGH.

****A real estate company has inked a deal to buy the evil Citibank bike-sharing operation. The sale is likely to mean the price of annual memberships will rise from $95 to about $145. PEOPLE WHO RIDE BICYCLES ON THE STREETS OF NEW YORK CITY END UP BEING ORGAN DONORS.

****Giants and Royals are in the World Series. NO ONE IN NYC CARES IF NEITHER OF THE TEAMS IS A NEW YORK TEAM.  NOBODY HERE IS EVEN WATCHING THE TV.

****New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo Hits all TV Shows to quell Ebola Fears. HE IS RUNNING FOR RE-ELECTION NEXT MONTH AND HIS PURPOSE IN BEING ON ALL THE TV SHOWS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HIM CARING ABOUT EBOLA. HE IS USING IT TO KEEP HIS FACE IN THE PUBLIC EYE.  FREE ADVERTISING FOR HIM.



****Who do you give your seat to in the subways or buses? The NYC order of precedence is: Disabled old person, Disabled person, Very pregnant woman, Child, Regular old person, Not very pregnant woman. NO ONE EVER GETS UP TO GIVE ME A SEAT.

**** "Currently being presented at the Metropolitan House in Lincoln Center, "Klinghoffer" is about watching a Jew get shot to death in the back of the head. Leon and Marilyn Klinghoffer's daughters, Lisa and Ilsa, denounced the Met's staging of the murder. It's an orgy of violence and pornography at the expense of their father and all Jews. It is bizarre to sit in an opera house in the middle of the city with the world's second largest Jewish population and hear its performance greeted with a long ovation while the conductor and cast take their bows."  THE PEOPLE WHO THINK THIS OPERA IS OK, WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PEOPLE THAT HELPED THE NAZIS TAKE THE JEWS TO GAS CHAMBERS. IT IS A MUSICAL COMEDY ABOUT AN OLD CRIPPLED JEW IN A WHEEL CHAIR WHO IS THROWN INTO THE OCEAN. HE DID NOT WALK ON THE WATER.

**** A federal judge sentenced Brooklyn fish dealer Alan Dresner to four months in prison for his role in a $510,000 seafood scam. Dresner, fenced 246,376 pounds of black market fluke from a Long Island fisherman. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration investigators hooked Dresner during a probe of crooked commercial anglers on Long Island. Dresner bought fluke under-the-counter from Anthony Joseph, captain of the Stirs One boat, who would under report his catch and sell the illegal bounty to Dresner. FOUR MONTHS FOR DESTROYING THE LONG ISLAND SOUND?

**** New York City has announced that all travelers entering the United States at JFK and Newark Liberty International Airports who have had direct contact with patients afflicted with Ebola in Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea will be quarantined for 21 days. THE CITY IS DOING SOMETHING THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS AGAINST AND IS GOING TO TAKE THE CITY TO COURT ABOUT THIS.

****Celebrity Sighting: Rod Stewart in Central Park LOOKING SLIGHTLY CHILLED IN A LIGHT JACKET.

Travel Warnings: 

****Bus companies that operate New York City's hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tours have agreed to settle a group of class action lawsuits brought by tourists, court papers show. The anti-trust lawsuits against Coach USA, City Sights and related entities accuse the companies of forming a joint venture to illegally monopolize the sightseeing bus industry and conspiring to fix prices above the market rate. The companies have also been known to tout certain attractions and obtain kickbacks from vendors.

****A whopping 92 percent of Airbnb and other B&B listings in New York are illegal, according to a state report, and together with city regulators, the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is actively cracking down on the room-rental service. It is against the law to rent an apartment to someone for less than thirty days and "guests" are subject to abrupt eviction. A LISTING ON THE INTERNET IS POSSIBLY A SCAM.

****TV THEME (can you guess what show this music came from?) ..AUDIO

****I did a music video....well, i drove the taxi in the video.  MUSIC

****THE SNEAKY CAMERA (the hidden camera)..a growing collection of new yorkers are unaware that they are being watched by a certain taxi driver. new ones are added from time to time. take a peep at SNEAKY

**to hear broadcast spots about some of the places where folks are taken to, listen to these commercials that were created for a "visit new york city promotion" at SPOTS

****please note that i encourage folks planning on coming to nyc to write to me for some advice.  beware the online trip advising sites that are written mainly by public relations people to promote their clients' services.  many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that.  i do not "rate" things but i sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
