Brad. When you get to Essex St. you should go a few blocks east to Clinton ST. Rizzo's fine pizza. The Sicilian is to die for. It's just the name of the street that turns me off !! Be assured you'll thank me.
Paul. We're common folk around here. Save the big words. No one is impressed. The last time you poo-pooed what I had to say, dopey ol' me shredded your argument.
Ralph. It's obvious you're new here. Daney rips us on the right for not being civil. However, he can say what he wants. Gives a whole new meaning to phony hypocrite.
The article is based in facts and written to entertain. Is it unacceptable for some because of the use of names or for saying what many prefer not to be said. From an ExArmy and West Phoenix perspective, it is actually very politically correct. Perhaps some of you should come into our schools to see what the poor pay and lack of quality teachers is doing to our youth of today. Perhaps then you would focus on the truth in his message and not focused on his name calling!
Thank you, Mr. Danehy. It is refreshing to see the courageous and insightful manner in which you call out corruption in our state government. So many people seem intimidated and cowed by the sweeping austerity measures meted out by our dark-money Governor, and hesitate to fight back. You give them reasoned language and and bold prescriptions.
Too cool. We're going back in July to see a couple of shows and will eat at Shopsin's again. We'll go back to Joe's as well, and Juniors. Could easily live there!
Indeed I have. I used to fix the elevators in a building on Hester St. one block over. Great place to get all sorts of treats. I had a funny feeling what ever that was, you got it in the real world.
Tom - I agree with you 100%!
CW13 - Way off topic...but my updated profile pic is of S'mores Slutty Cakes from Shopsin's in the Essex Street Market on the Lower East Side. Ever been?
Mark - Very decent response. Knowing that, though, would seem to make you more prone to either looking past Tom's "stooping" and focusing on the content or, at the very least, understanding his "juvenile" behavior may well have been borne from a frustration similar (or at least as justified) as yours. I realize this sounds "preachy." It just seems like a lot of emphasis is placed on how uncivil or rude or juvenile Tom can be by (generally) the most rude posters on the site. Just seems like a waste of time.
@ Shalom, I meant it as a religious person
4. gentile - a Christian; "Christians refer to themselves as gentiles"
@ Brad, yes at times I stooped to Danehy's level out of frustration, and for that I am ashamed

I am sure that Jewish people could be offended as well.
Brad, yes I did stoop to Danehey's level at times, and for that I am ashamed
@Mark Robert Heywood: Maybe the column will offend gentile readers, but what about readers of the Jewish persuasion?
Mark, I seem to remember some rather "juvenile" comments from you at other times as well. Were we to not take those seriously, either? In addition, while I will not presume to know who you will vote for come November, it would seem, using your above critique as a guide, Mr. Trump is a big "no."
Tom, your juvenile name calling makes it hard to take anything you say seriously, and offends the more gentile readers. I can see why they have cut your columns (if you can call them that) down to every other week.
Right on, Tom.
Boy, is she in a mood. Very civil Tammy, very civil.
What can you say? When he's right, he's right!
" These 2 Irishmen walk into a bar ......"" Well, it could happen!!
" These 2 Irishmen walk into a bar..." Well, it could happen.
In a book I read years ago, the attitude of the British - particularly the English - was summarized by the following intro to a joke told by an English comedian:
"It seems there was an Irish brain surgeon [pause for laughter]..."
I can highly recommend a new biography on Meagher called, "The Immortal Irishman-The Irish Revolutionary who became an American Hero" by National Book Club Award winner Timothy Egan. Egan spoke about his book at the recent Festival of Books and I couldn't not buy it.
Only Brian Johnson has addressed my position on this issue, so I'll add my voice to his. If the Democratic and Republican parties want to keep registered independents out of the primary process (or the "presidential preference" process), then the parties should pay for the whole friggin thing! You can't tell me I'm not a member of the club so I don't get to vote, but I still have to pay for it. That is YOU trying to have it both ways. You want to be exclusive, but you don't want to pay for the cost of the closed primary. Choose. If I am forced to pay for all these primaries as a taxpayer, then I should get to participate. Or you can limit my participation but then only members of the private club (the two major parties) should foot the bill.
fwiw, I did change my registration to Dem so I could vote this last time, and I was lucky that I wasn't disenfranchised by some of the computer "glitches" that changed people's party affiliation without their permission or knowledge (watch the recorded testimony to the Election Committee at the legislature, especially the poll worker's experience. Absolutely chilling) And I will change back to independent as soon as the primary season is over. Neither of the two major parties reflect my politics, and they have both gone out of their way to make me feel unwelcome.
