Great American News

Yesterday a story was posted to the Buffalo News about the Great American News porn shop on Niagara Street. They do not have the proper permits to run part of their business.

"We're going to address everything," said Michael Deal of the Lipsitz Green Scime Cambria law firm. "We intend on working in cooperation with the permitting people."

The major concerns involve a section of the building that includes two theaters, said Sole. One room can seat about 45 people, while the other can accommodate about 25. It also has an arcade area where people can view films by feeding tokens into machines.

"They basically turned a storage area into a place for public assembly," said Sole. "They've changed the parameters of their business activity."

So, let us play a fun little game. Who would you rather be? A city inspector who has to walk through both theaters and movie booths, or the lawyer representing them from a law firm with the name Green Scime in it?

Change Buffalo


So, Jim Heaney of the Buffalo News ran a story about how Councilmember David and the Brown administration are under investigation from the DA and the FBI. Hurrah!

This is just part of an endless stream of scandals. $30,000 of anti-poverty money used to purchase blackberries. Over a million in anti-poverty money being used to run a restaurant. Sending emails to city employees telling them they had to work on his campaign.

Property taxes are lower, but assessments raise the price of homes and the total amount taxed. Violent crime is up 6.5% this year. What economic development has taken place? A new court house is not long term development. Tearing down the aud is not long term development.

Charges of ethics violations, election law crimes, endless corruption, and failure to meet most campaign promises would topple the mayor of a better city. But we are not a better city. We are a good city run by bad people.

A few days later, the Mayor handed in 21,000 signatures on his petitions for reelection. He needed only 2,000 to qualify.

But, he has a challenger! South district councilmember Mickey Kearns is gunning for the Mayor's office. Rumor has it that scandals and corruption in the Brown administration are going to send people flocking to support Kearns. Rumor has it that he should be handing in over 3,500 signatures!

Wait, 3,500? That is it?

We do not have a mayor with a vision for a sustainable future for our city. But he will be mayor for four more years as he does not have a serious challenger. With a number like 3.5K it isn't even certain that he will be on the ballot.

Really? There has to be someone around here who wont flop around the political stage like a fish.

Who wants to rub elbows with the local political elite tomorrow, eat a whole mess of clams, and drink beer for free? If you can volunteer some time to help out at Sam Hoyt's Clambake at the West Side Rowing Club and be there between 4:30-5:00 and stay until dark you will have a full belly and be quite tipsy.
Work is mostly directing traffic at the beginning, and then picking up trash at the end. With considerable time in between to ear drink and be merry.

Come on, who wants in?

This is my new favorite music video from my new favorite band.

I love plushy monsters with plushy claws.

Need a vacation after fake vacation

We spent 9 hours in the car on the way there.

We spent two days there.

We spent 8 hours on the way back.

I spent the whole weekend sick and the weather was chilly and rainy. Thankfully I was feeling alright the day Jim and I went to Province Town. I love the little gay towns of the world. It makes me happy to be surrounded by my people, when the roving packs of the queer nation out number the sea side strolling hetero families. If not just because I don't feel guilty ordering a big fruity alcoholic drink with my lunch.

Anyway, we are back in civilization and very sorry we missed the BBQ yesterday. Glad you crazy kids had a good time.

Better luck next time, us.

Allentown Athletix Renewal

Hey Folks,

Just letting you know that I renewed with AA. The renewal price will be $309, which is a 3% increase over last year's, which is excellent.

I am so incredibly tired from this week. I would post something more. But I would rather die or sleep or both.

Gym Thing


It is that time of year again. I just need to know how many people plan on renewing their membership to Allentown Athletix?

I have already heard from a few of you about your plans (Tad, Tib) but what about the rest of you? If you could let me know as soon as possible so we can lock down the rate I would appreciate it.
