True Tales for this Week....

****"Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, freed after years of captivity in Afghanistan and returned to active duty this week, has retained an attorney - a military law expert from Yale, Eugene Fidell, who teaches military justice at Yale Law School. He has been representing Bergdahl for about a week and is working pro bono." EUGENE DOESN'T WANT ANYONE TO SEE THIS PICTURE OF BOWE TAKEN WHILE HE WAS A "CAPTIVE." THE GUY NEXT TO HIM IS AN ANTI-AMERICAN TERRORIST.  ALSO,  EUGENE IS NOT WORKING "PRO BONO" COMPLETELY.

****A Jewish New York doctor was thrown off a JetBlue flight bound for JFK after she ranted at a Palestinian passenger, calling the woman a "murderer" and shouting she had explosives in her bag. TENSIONS BETWEEN MUSLIMS AND JEWS ARE AT AN ALL TIME HIGH IN NYC.

****The city's first deputy mayor is in charge of the nation's largest city government when Mayor Bill de Blasio leaves the five boroughs for his week-plus trip to Italy. THE TRIP WILL COST THE TAXPAYERS ALMOST $200,000.

****A doctor accused of peddling painkiller prescriptions to addicts - including some who died of overdoses and one who later killed four people in a pharmacy holdup - was convicted in what was believed to be the first manslaughter case against a New York doctor in an overdose death. THOUSANDS OF DOCTORS IN THIS CITY GIVE PATIENTS WHATEVER PILLS THEY WANT.

****New York City is the most unhappy city in America. That's according to data coming from a working paper by Harvard professor Edward Glaeser, Vancouver School of Economics professor Joshua Gottlieb and Harvard doctoral student Oren Ziv. They used data collected in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey called the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, and then adjusted it for age, sex, race, income and other factors. THEY JUST CREATED THE DATA TO CONFORM TO THEIR OWN INABILITY TO LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY INSTEAD OF THE HICK TOWNS THEY DO LIVE IN.

**** Daily News owner Mort Zuckerman wielded the ax again on this week, laying off another 17 newsroom employees in a relentless drive to stem losses. The seemingly indiscriminate cuts included a Pulitzer Prize winner. THE DAILY NEWS IS A GOOD THING TO LINE YOUR BIRD CAGE.

****The NYC taxi commission does not provide toilet facilities for cab drivers at either JFK or Laguardia airports. THAT IS WHY CAB DRIVERS ALL CARRY A PAPER CUP AND YOU AS A PASSENGER SHOULD NEVER SHAKE THE HAND OF A NYC TAXI DRIVER WHO BRINGS YOU INTO MANHATTAN FROM THE AIRPORT.

****A plainclothes NYPD cop violated department protocol by using a chokehold while handcuffing a man. THE GUY DIED AND YOU CAN BET THAT NOTHING WILL HAPPEN TO THE COP.

****A businessman left his company-owned Range Rover in the hands of a Lower East Side garage attendant - who "borrowed" it for an eight-hour joyride. CHECK YOUR ODEOMETER WHEN YOU PICK UP YOUR CAR FROM A NYC GARAGE.

**** "At the public funded Barclays sports arena in Brooklyn, guests may not bring food and/or beverage items into the arena during events. Guests must dispose of the unauthorized items prior to entrance into the arena or return them to their vehicle." IF YOU HAVE A GLUTEN INTOLERANCE OR ARE A JEW OR A MUSLIM YOU ARE SCREWED. THE REAL PURPOSE OF THIS REGULATION IS TO MAKE GUESTS BUY FOOD AT UNBELIEVABLE PRICES LIKE SIX DOLLARS FOR A FRANK AND FOUR DOLLARS FOR A SODA.

****New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed into law a measure that creates a municipal identification card that can now be used by illegal immigrants to access government services, rent an apartment and open a bank account. ILLEGALS SHOULD NOT TRUST THIS GUY. HE WILL TURN THE NAMES AND ADDRESSES OVER TO THE IMMIGRATION SERVICE.

****The Bronx firefighter, who is one of only 41 female firefighters in the New York City Fire Department, will now be the first woman featured in the previously all-male beefcake calendar FDNY Calendar of Heroes. THE DEPARTMENT ALSO DOESN'T GENERALLY HIRE BLACKS OR LATINOS.

****Joke du Jour: You can hear this week's joke "Rocking Chair Sex" and all my other jokes at the Joke du Jour link higher up on this web page.

****Celebrity Sighting: John Lithgow, who is playing King Lear in the Public Theater's Shakespeare in the Park.

****The Gabby Cabby Beach Tour has started. Spend the day with me at the Coney Island Beach. You bring the bathing suits and I bring the towels. Each trip is for you and yours only. I do not join any other people in your group. Up to five people. You pay for your own lunch and amusement park fees (only if you want to take those rides. I was a registered lifeguard for the City of New York in my youth. There is no additional charge if I have to rescue you.

****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.

****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.
