True Tales for this Week....

 ****Joke du Jour: You can hear all my jokes at the Joke du Jour link higher up on this web page.

****Two double-decker buses collided in Times Square, with one hurtling into a crowded plaza, injuring at least 15 people and sending scores more scurrying to safety. The crash, which took place just before 3:30 p.m. at the corner of 47th Street and Seventh Avenue, sent at least one traffic light tumbling to the ground and debris flying into a sidewalk crowded with tourists and shoppers. THE DRIVER OF ONE OF THE BUSES WAS HIGH ON SOMETHING AND HAS HAD HIS LICENSE SUSPENDED 13 TIMES.

****The Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network is organizing a march that will shut down the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge later this month, and the city does not appear to have a plan to deal with the protest. HE FEELS THAT THE COPS SHOULD NOT HAVE MURDERED A GUY WHO WAS SELLING CIGARETTES INDIVIDUALLY RATHER THAN BY THE PACK.  TAKE A LOOK AT THE POLICE COMMISSIONER, THE MAYOR AND SHARPTON  AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE.

 ****Ultra-Orthodox Jews, mainly living in Brooklyn away from the current war, protest Israel's proposed draft of religious citizens to its army. In the meantime, other Jews are partying in the Hamptons. EVERYBODY SEEMS TO WANT A WAR AS LONG AS THEY DON'T HAVE TO ACTUALLY GO THERE AND FIGHT. HAMPTON PEOPLE AND ORTHODOX JEWS DO NOT DO WAR.

****"Window Wipers were the ultimate symbol of the lawlessness and blight of the 1980s and early 1990s - and now they're making a comeback. Squeegee men are menacing motorists across New York City, including spots near the Holland, Lincoln and Queens-Midtown tunnels, as well as the Queensboro Bridge." A RATHER OVERKILL REPORTING BY THE NEW YORK POST. THEY ARE NOT MEANACING MOTORISTS AND THEY ARE NO MORE LAWLESS THAN THE TYPICAL JOURNALIST.

****New York City is inviting the Democrats to hold the next convention (2016) in our city. MANY RESIDENTS DO NOT WANT THIS AND A CAMPAIGN HAS STARTED TO STOP IT.

****Thousands of people are renouncing their American citizenship and leaving the country. IT LOOKS LIKE THE TOTAL WILL BE 3,000 WHICH IS ABOUT THE SAME AS LAST YEAR. THERE IS A SPECIAL DEPARTMENT IN THE FEDERAL BUILDING ON BROADWAY THAT HANDLES THESE MATTERS.

****Airbnb is being called a blight on the city by the City Council. Use this organization and you run the risk of getting thrown out of your room. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO RENT SOMEONE YOUR APARTMENT FOR LESS THAN A MONTH. ALSO, THERE IS NO INSURANCE ON THE APARTMENT AND IT HAS NOT BEEN CHEKED BY THE FIRE DEPARTMENT.

****The New York Times runs an editorial attacking the lending practices of used car dealers, yet it carries advertisements for these dealers in the "automobile section" of its Sunday newspaper. THE NEWSPAPER IS THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM BY ACCEPTING THE ADVERTISEMENTS FROM THE BUMS.

****New plague of bedbugs are on the subways, especially on the Manhattan lines. COULD THIS BE TRUE? WHERE ARE THEY COMING FROM?

****Celebrity Sighting: Martha Stewart DEMONSTRATING SOME OF HER COOKWARE, WEARING SOME OF HER DESIGNER CLOTHING AND HAVING HER BRAND NAME PRODUCT MAKEUP ON HER FACE.

 ****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

**here is an interview i did with a tourist and it was presented on radio 702 in south africa. from time to time, i do this and the tourist gets to be famous. the radio stations love this feature for their listeners. AUDIO

**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.
