Scary Phone Call

"This is the (e:peep) mafia. You haven't been attending our meetings. Don't you know that once you join, you can never leave. Show up to the Pink or else.."

Okay, so that wasn't exactly verbatim. But (e:jill) and (e:mike) were certainly trying to stir up some trouble last night.

(E:peeps) are down and they haven't seen each other. All signs point to an epeep night out. Maybe we should try another Thursday night at the Pink. According to (e:strip), even Republicans like it there.

And to help us all cheer up - how about some winter outings? Anyone interested in cross-country skiing or ice skating?

Let's get the morale back up around here.

Not Enough



Project Vote Smart is a great site, but neither George Bush nor John Kerry have submitted their issue positions. Is it that much to ask of them? Just tell me exactly where you stand. There is way too much rhetoric out there, and not enough nitty gritty.

Pano's

This Buffalo News editorial pretty much sums it up for me.

Pano Georgiadis wants to tear down 1089 Elmwood Ave. to expand his restaurant and parking lot. One of his main arguments for demolition of this lovely Queen Anne, built in 1893, is the poor condition of the interior. However, Georgiadis has owned this house for seven years, collecting rents while allowing it to deteriorate. Should we reward his neglect or hold him accountable?

The Elmwood Village is a thriving residential and commercial district, one of the few areas in the city where property values are rising and population is increasing. This is due in part to the uniqueness and beauty of the architecture, the streetscape.

Since Pano's restaurant directly benefits from the popularity of this community, and draws a large portion of its customers from the surrounding neighborhoods, Georgiadis would do well to support preservation efforts, rather than alienate his neighbors.

Bias

[inlink]jessbob,78[/inlink]
I believe that (e:matthew) used the phrase "slight exagerration," so I wouldn't consider his statistic a "lie."

Yes, the media bias issue is largely based on money. But face it - the mass media is controlled by large corporations that tend to have financial ties to conservatives. So the majority of reporting is clearly conservatively biased. I don't understand how so many people can criticize Michael Moore for being biased when Fox News is so slanted to the right that the viewer feels like he's at a pep rally. Moore is a movie-maker and he does not claim to be neutral. But the news should be as unbiased as possible.

No, I don't have any statistics. If I had the time, maybe I'd write a thesis on it. But for now, use your common sense. Since ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, the Buffalo News, the New York Times, and most of the rest decide to take a conservative slant, there are a few small newspapers and radio shows that attempt to tell the other side of the story.

So as (e:matthew) says, give us liberals some say once in a while - please.

As for working together to find solutions, the idea is grand, but the reality isn't there. We have two major parties that are supposed to have two different ideals. How can we work together when one side wants to minimize taxes for the rich and the other side wants to raise them to provide social services? It almost always comes down to money, and it will almost always be an issue of haves against have-nots.

The Mystery

Why is it that I cannot pass over Clash of the Titans? Every time I see it's on, I have to stop for at least 10 minutes.

It's that damn little robot owl. Gets me every time.

Monday Already

Friday - good food and fun.

Saturday - drove to Canandaigua to find that big sister had stayed up unitl 8:30 AM drinking in the hot tub. Who says married people can't have fun?

Sunday - shopping and lunch in Rochester with my long-lost friend Beth. Well, it's only been a few weeks, but it feels like years.
