In a New York Minute

Being a vocal, loyal fan of the Redskins, Bullets and Redsox at an upstate New York boarding school didn’t go over too well with the lads. He hated their teams right back, as any good D.C.- loving boy would but he was badly outnumbered. The Big Apple’s teams and in turn, the City, had been his nemesis for years and moving to the coast only strengthened that rivalry.

He used to fly People Express in and out of Newark and it was hell. The bus to Port Authority and the cruise to Canal Street was always a fun adventure but he had absolutely revelled in not being a Newyorker.

Seventeen years and a minute later he fell hard.

MISTA? Hello?!
Can you blame him?
Every polish waitress, every Ecuadorian launderer,
Indian Cabdriver, downtown hipster, bodega owner and Yankee Stadium attendee treated him like a king.

Gettheheckouta’ere!
What gives?

The smell of burnt pretzels and Sabrett hot dogs with cars whizzing/honking by; a beautiful day in Central Park and the sun going down right exactly over the West Village. Thirty Irish bars in ten square blocks, thousands of great restaurants and a subway that works.

He gave in.

Seventeen years later he fell in love with a city that never sleeps and it was all over. But it wasn’t until he flew back to the coast that evening that he choked-up when he figured it out:
this was a truly great town that had been attacked; it’s heart broken just two and a half years before.

Just when he had lost faith in pretty much all of mankind, this good, noble, wounded yet resilient city had given him some hope that America could still be great.

The beautiful woman didn’t hurt either.

Guy Adami just said : “Wait, Wait, Let’s Officially welcome Melissa to the center chair…” (unofficial transcript)

drMedia outlets have been reporting for the past few days that Dylan Ratigan’s March 31 contract would not be renewed.

As Broadcatching mentioned earlier , we met Mr. Ratigan last fall outside NASDAQ HQ and he was a swell chap.

He was cruising for a bruising talking all that truth and ABC is going to give him a fat payday.

Uh oh….

A flock of geese is being blamed for the water-landing of U.S. Airways 1549.

More than half a dozen water-ferries immediately began to rescue the 155 people aboard.

The pilot apparently meant to land it in the water off 48th street and the West side of Manhattan.

The flight originated from Laguardia Airport.

The first call to 911 was made at 3:31

All 150 passengers were rescued including the five crew members totaling 155 people who survived the crash.

Mr. Bloomberg told me at the press conference when I questioned him* that the pilot personally told the Mayor that he went back into the plane twice to check to see if there were any remaining passengers in the cabin.

The pilot has been identified by friends as Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger III

Here’s a Fella (GW Bush) Who is Probably Responsible For Close to a Million Iraqi Deaths

shoe-throwing

Here’s a fella (GW Bush) who is probably responsible for close to a million Iraqi deaths and you’ve got assbite American media-types pontificating on teevee about how outrageous it is that this man, who has lost family members to Bush’s folly would be so full of sadness and anger that he would have the audacity to direct his vitriol at exactly the man responsible-..hard to believe.
