Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Ironic: This is what "crime reporting" is all about: stirring cheap moral outrage and breathless condemnation from spectators (the advent of online news comment sections has been a boon to this genre). This could be the most successful story in Som Lisaius's carreer

Re: “Danehy

I've learned so much from this hilarious piece, like: The scores of a soccer match are likely to be very low! Sometimes there's no score at all!

Also: Soccer is not so popular among spectators in the US of A! Sort of puts into perspective its popularity as the top youth sport among people who actually play as opposed to people who have some sports event on the TeeVee set while they munch junk food.

Finally: Soccer is not cool! Tom Danehy, the decider on these matters, says so!

Re: “Body Identified After Fatal Train Accident Downtown

Sad to hear about this, but correct me if I am wrong: Would it not have been *North* Seventh Avenue and *East* Seventh Street?

Or have I been away so long that I've got my old neighborhood all twisted around in my head?

Re: “GRILL 1994-2011

Well, Missing Limbs of Trash said it before I had the chance (with a bit more color than I would have gone with).

I ate at both the Congress Grill and later Grill.

For years now we have been able to read self-congratulatory silliness about the seminal, legendary, no where else to hang downtown *Grill.* Total bullshit. I'd keep my bile to myself but for Graham's choice to trash the perfectly serviceable Congress Grill that came before. He honestly thinks that he "cleaned up and did something nice" with the place? This is what he did: He made the menu a bit pricier, perhaps justified by a marginal upgrade in the raw materials needed to assemble the sandwiches and whatnot. No complaints there. But he then hired a succession of slumming middle-class college students or slumming *would be* college students to play-act the parts of a gritty downtown diner crew. Oh wait, scrub that, they were all brilliant "artists" play-acting the parts of a gritty downtown diner crew.


I enjoyed getting a sandwich or an egg there once in awhile. But when I and my pal had to spend *a bit* too long watching some white, *daringly* tattooed dropout of a waitress *nailed* the role of the gum chewing *authentic gritty downtown diner waitress* while ignoring us so that she could hold court at the counter with her similarly decked-out pals, I walked out without and made it a point to never walk in again. That would have been around 1996 or 97. There were plenty of other places to go downtown then, believe it or not.

Re: “Tom Goes to the Chair: Sorry Folks, 'Girls' Is Still Terrible

Same old Tom Danehy I see: "*They* aren't hip, *I'm* Hip! They do drugs! Drugs aren't cool!" Why won't anyone recognize your awesome talent, as well as your responsible stance on drug use? The world is just not fair to you old man.

Girls is funnier than you Tom. As a writer, Lena Dunham is more talented, has more to say than you, and her show is one of the most original in TeeVee history, one of the funniest shows about youngsters since Freaks and Geeks. Just how it is.
