When old buildings were new

I found an interesting digital collection of maps at the N.Y. Public Library. I have always been fascinated by maps, and to a lesser degree, aerial photographs and urban architecture. As I was browsing, I came across a collection titled "Classic Six:" New York City Apartment Building Living, 1880s-1910s.

Here are two adjacent buildings on the same block, the west side of Broadway between 136th & 137th Streets. The buildings went up in 1907, with rents from $480 (probably for the first floor behind the storefronts) to $1,500 (probably the two front corner apartments).

Leslie Court, 137th & Broadway.

The Saxonia, 136th & Broadway.

Here is an aerial view of the two buildings as they stand today. You can clearly make out the plan of the Leslie Court building in the photograph.

Lynne Stewart, Ward Churchill, and other festivities

Urban Infidel reports from a moonbat party in New York City:
We crashed Lynne Stewart's 'GLOAT PARTY' last night at the Judson Memorial Church downtown across from Washington Square Park. It was a rousing affair to say the least. It came as a complete surprise to the Lynne Stewart folks who were throwing a celebration called 'Ode to Joy and Struggle' thanking everyone for their support over the 4 years of her trial and also to 'unite for the struggle ahead'. 'Struggle' they say? As in 'Mein Kampf' maybe? As in 'jihad' too perhaps..?
The photos speak for themselves.

MF'n Grinches

From Seattle:

All Holiday trees at Sea-Tac Airport were removed this morning after several community member complaints. They say the trees don't represent all cultures and religions...The trees will not go up again...the airport policy on decorations will be reviewed after the holidays.
I don't celebrate Christmas, but this is beyond stupid. The Winter Solstice is a time to celebrate the return of sunlight, whether or not the trees are associated specifically with Christmas. I enjoy the decorations. The complaining community members would do well to impale themselves on a nice, sharp tree. Does anybody know who they are? Does anybody CAIR?

UPDATE: The person complaining was identified as "a Seattle rabbi with the Central Organization for Jewish Learning who hired an attorney and threatened to sue if the airport did not erect an eight-foot menorah...." I couldn't find an organization by that name, but I did find Chabad-Lubavitch Central Organization for Jewish Education. Chabad puts up those humongous menorahs on town greens. They're usually pretty cool, but somebody is not playing well with others.

UPDATE: CNN has more. Even Rabbi Elazar Bogomilsky, who made the original request, is upset. (It didn't help that he lawyered up.) The Port of Seattle apparently fears problems with identity politics and grievance mongering, and decided to remove all decorations.

The high school popularity contest continues

I got the latest email from Classmates.com today. I have had 23 visits to my profile.

Lifetime.

I registered about ten years ago.

The funniest part is viewing my profile. It lists my various communities, and there are a couple of stretches not associated with anything. They list the range of years and ask "Where were you?"? Believe me, if I could either remember or wanted to admit to it, I would have posted it.

I've Googled some of my high school classmates. The comparison is not pretty. Some of them are successful. Then there are others whose claim to fame lies within the grimy studio walls of an obscure noncommercial radio station. I may be an unpopular fuck-up, but I certainly enjoy doing radio at equally unpopular WPKN.

Don't forget to hit the tip jar.

Judenrein Venezuela

This is a translation of a column that appeared in El Diario de Caracas.

Anti Semitism in Venezuela: it is planned
Zionists, the destructive sect of radical Jews, are again impregnating the Jewish community with its animosity towards humanity. The genocide they executed in Palestine and Lebanon is similar to the Holocaust which the Nazis executed against them, and they will undergo another Holocaust because of the global hatred they are accumulating. If the Jews have charged the Nazis for their victims, they will have to pay Lebanon for their killings. The Jewish race is condemned to disappear, because if they continue marrying among themselves they will continue to degenerate; if they open their marriages they will racially dilute themselves, so they only recourse is to stay united, to provoke wars, and auto-genocides. ...

Israelis are lying when they say they are the favored people of God; on the contrary, because they are always at war and without their own land, it seems that they are marked for having destroyed Jesus Christ. We should reform the Bible which falsely refers to them as the chosen race by God, and we will act to stop them from manipulating the Jewish community. The United States is trapped by Zionists who control their economy and many critical positions in their government; and we must avoid that this critical situation takes place in Venezuela before they also ruin us, because they can possess any nationality, but first they act as Jews in whatever land they plant themselves....

Let's pay attention of the Israeli-Zionist associations, unions and federations which are conspiring to Venezuela to take over our finances, our industries, commerce, construction; which are infiltrating government positions and politics. Possibly, we'll have to expel them from the country, as other nations have done, which is the reason that Jews remain in a continuous state of stateless exodus, and it is why in 1948 they invaded Palestine, guided by Albion.
Did they miss any points?
  • Untermenschen? check.
  • Christ-killers? Check.
  • Control the economy? Check.

This is straight-up European antisemitism, coming soon to a South American socialist paradise near you. WAKE UP!!!

(Hat tip: Daniel at Venezuela News And Views)

Why I never joined a fraternity

First thing is, it just didn't seem that appealing. I have always been a loner, and accepting a group of strangers as my "brothers" made no sense. Every now and then, I read something like this:

Pledges In Apparent Hazing Ritual May Have Been Sexually Assaulted
The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity at UCF was suspended by its national office and has become the subject of a police investigation after three students were recently found so drunk that they had be rushed to a hospital. ..."There were some things confiscated by police inside the SAE fraternity house that leads them to believe that they may have been sexually assaulted," Local 6's Samantha Knapp said. ...Officers said the common area had a strong smell of urine and vomit.
Nice, huh? My recollection of fraternities is that TKE was the "classy" frat at my college. Several of the elected student body leaders were members. They also had a couple of enforcers who threatened to break my legs and vandalize my car.

"Speaking truth to power" = heckling

Let's see...elite, top-shelf Ivy college hosts a controversial speaker (invited by a student group). People who oppose the speaker heckle, interrupt, and rush the stage. End of [civilized] discussion.

The best part is the self-serving statement from the hecklers:
We celebrate free speech: for that reason we allowed the Minutemen to speak, and for that same reason we peacefully occupied the stage and spoke ourselves. Our peaceful protest was violently attacked by members of the College Republicans and their supporters, who are the very same people who invited the Minutemen to our campus in the first place. The Minutemen are not a legitimate voice in the debate on immigration. They are a racist, armed militia who have declared open hunting season on immigrants, causing countless hate crimes and over 3000 deaths on the border. Why should exploitative corporations have free passes between nations, but individual people not? No human being is illegal.
Huh? Slowly now, line by line:

We celebrate free speech: for that reason we allowed the Minutemen to speak, and for that same reason we peacefully occupied the stage and spoke ourselves.
No, you rushed the stage, interruped the speaker and took over. That's not allwoing them to speak.

Our peaceful protest was violently attacked by members of the College Republicans and their supporters,
As opposed to your own act of violence, which you fail to see as such.

The Minutemen are not a legitimate voice in the debate on immigration.
"I disagree; therefore they have no right to speak."
They are a racist, armed militia who have declared open hunting season on immigrants, causing countless hate crimes and over 3000 deaths on the border.
Sources, please? It's easy to say someone has caused "countless" hate crimes when you don't have to count them. Don't forget to provide your sources tying them to over 3000 deaths.

Why should exploitative corporations have free passes between nations, but individual people not?
That's a red herring. You were discussing your behavior before you changed the subject.

No human being is illegal.
Human beings are not illegal, but sometimes their actions are. Congratulations. You hit all the talking points and slogans. You shut down speech that you found objectionable. G-d help us all if you come into power. Now go read The Gulag Archipelago.

Confirmed: I am humor-challenged

I responded to a snarky headline in the New Haven Independent, saying in essence that I didn't think a mugging was something to joke about.
I must be humor-challenged. "Just Don't Take the Pooch" seems very light-hearted for a crime headline. I'm sure the mugging victim is laughing it up after four thugs took his stuff. Maybe Melissa Bailey, Paul Bass, and the Independent readers think a "spontaneous redistribution of wealth" is an acceptable form of urban tzedakah, but there are still some people who think of it as crime.
I have it on good authority -- well, as much authority as an Independent reader can carry -- that I am indeed humor-challenged. There must be some government grant money available to rehabilitate me, or at least buy me a copy of Zinn's History.
Yes, you are humor-challenged.

I take my dog to the Edgewood run frequently, and could easily have been in that victim's place. Even so, I don't object to a little humor in the Independent's reporting of non-violent crime.

Things in our fair city are a little tense. Curmudgeony is not the answer.
The crime may only have been non-violent because the victim was outnumbered 4-1 and he gave up his stuff without a fight. I have a scar on my face because I did fight for my property the last time a group of yutes tried to rob me. It's good for a laugh every time I look in the mirror.

Cognitive dissonance



The only explanation I can think of is that this geek joined the cause to get laid. Something tells me he's not succeeding.

This is the "peace and justice" movement

Human rights activist Reza Moradi protested against support for terrorists during the "Time To Go" demo in Manchester, 23 September. His female friend gets manhandled by Ghada Razuki of Stop The War Coalition.

They always talk about democracy, but the standard operating procedure is "free speech for me, but not for thee." Try disputing the "peace and justice" activists on WPKN and see how far you get.

Tisha b'Av


The ninth day in the Jewish month of Av.

It is a day of many calamities in Jewish history (from OU.org):

1. The sin of the spies caused Hashem to decree that the Children of Israel who left Egypt would not be permitted to enter the land of Israel;

2. The first Temple was destroyed;

3. The second Temple was destroyed;

4. Betar, the last fortress to hold out against the Romans during the Bar Kochba revolt in the year 135, fell, sealing the fate of the Jewish people.

5. One year after the fall of Betar, the Temple area was plowed.

6. In 1492, King Ferdinand of Spain issued the expulsion decree, setting Tisha B'Av as the final date by which not a single Jew would be allowed to walk on Spanish soil.

7. World War I – which began the downward slide to the Holocaust – began on Tisha B’av.

Is Jane kidding or what?



This picture appeared in a Jane Hamsher blog entry in the Huffington Post, but the properties show that it's hosted at the poodle dog puddle. It looks like the photo was deleted from the HuffPo, but it came from here: http://www.firedoglake.com/wp-content/uploads/2006/08/4931cdbe-934f-4622-97c7-9629e6b7f8a3.jpg

Hey Lamont, you big dummy! Is this the kind of support you want?

UPDATE: Timing is everything. This image was published the day Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were in Bridgeport to announce their endorsement of Ned Lamont.
