Poison & Def Leppard
2009-06-27 21:39:00
I stumbled on Jeff Miers' review of last night's show at Darien Lake, and laughed at this bit: Sadly, Poison also performed. Calling the band?s set atrocious would be going easy on them. The band rode the wave of glammed-out pop-metal acts that seemed to be lurking behind every corner ...

Thanks to the readers and editors of the Buffalo Spree for naming me "Best Online Writer" for the Spree's "Best of Buffalo 2009". The gala was fun, as always, and we bumped into Kevin Hardwick, Jen, and Jen, among others.

Bow to the Master
2009-06-26 03:35:00
Rush Limbaugh has somehow managed to argue that Mark Sanford's Argentine tryst is Barack Obama's fault. That is utterly fantastic in the literal sense of that word.

No Session, No Pay
2009-06-25 21:35:00
Maybe in this case, they'll all go home and never go back to Albany, ever. From now on, every New York State Senator - every single one - should be written as such: Pedro Espada, Jr. (D-Disgrace) Dale Volker (R-Disgrace) Etc.
Polonia Angry About Play that Celebrates Polish Ancestry
2009-06-25 21:35:00
Let's be blunt. The people who are protesting this play are imbeciles. Cretins. They are incurious, ignorant, lacking in a sense of irony or humor, and in desperate need of a job or hobby. A handful of Buffalonian Polish -Americans protested a play that is being put ...

Obama?s Presser 6/22
2009-06-24 21:32:00
[HTML1] The MI6 and the CIA overthrew a democratically elected Iranian government in 1953 and installed the Shah. Had that not happened, it's quite likely that Iran wouldn't be run by Ayatollahs right now, and who knows? Maybe there wouldn't be a Hezbollah either. Since the Shah was deposed, ...

Two Things
2009-06-24 09:31:00
1. Congratulations to Mike Miller on becoming the Executive Director of Preservation Buffalo Niagara. 2. Buffalo Repat has an interesting post that anecdotally shows that unchecked annexation can sometimes be as harmful as no annexation at all.

Abolish the New York State Senate This Instant
2009-06-24 09:31:00
Here's how New York 's WCBS described today's carnival sideshow called "Albany": As incredible as it may seem, pictures obtained by CBS 2 HD are of the Democratic senators who locked themselves inside their chamber so they could be "first in" for Gov. David Paterson's special session. The pictures, shot through ...

Maybe He Can Run for NYS Senate
2009-06-24 09:31:00
Joe the Plumber has gone from the D-list to the F-list, and for all his moaning about being paid attention to, negatively and positively, he's still out doing "speaking" engagements, trying to cash in on minute 15:03. ?This country has been great for over 180 years,? Wurzelbacher said after urging ...

Naples' own Tom Golisano is considering for the U.S. Senate. But he's not taking on Schumer or Gillibrand. We're talking about one of the seats from Florida. I thought he was all about cleaning up Albany or something. What's the difference between Tom Golisano and a ...

No One is Proposing Socialized Health Care
2009-06-22 15:28:00

Some have single-payer systems, like Canada and the UK, while others have mandatory insurance coverage schemes ...

Pedro Espada, Jr. Republican Icon.

See, the problem for State Senate Republican s in essentially naming Sen. Pedro Espada, Jr (D-Grand Jury Room) as President is that they've bought him. They're stuck with him. Until the coup, Espada was just another narcissistic loudmouth lost in a sea of narcissistic loudmouths. Now, he's the Republican's ...
