all we are saying is

The Farmers Markets have been rich in golden peaches these past few weeks.

They are large and they ripen well and the pit can be flicked out with just your fingernail.

Wash and halve them, remove the pit and brush them with canola oil, then drop them on the grill cut side down.

Smokey, blackened and with their sweetness concentrated even more, just add ice cream.

And roasted pistachios.

And a spoon.

“So how’s your holiday?”

Happy Holiday!

panty pics protected speech


The First Amendment was submitted to the states for ratification on September 25, 1789, and came into effect in 1791.

Good thing for Ronald Thompson, a Texan in his early fifties.

Back in March we ran a story about how a female judge in Massachusetts found it legal to shoot photos up a woman’s skirt.

Now incredibly, Texas has followed suit and set Thompson free.

The highest court in the state--and not incidentally another female--Judge Sharon Keller has ruled it is not a criminal act “to take surreptitious images in public for the purposes of sexual gratification.”


And therefore protected by the First Amendment.
So give this kid a camera. 
As long as he’s livin' in the Lone Star State.

Have a great weekend!

stop horsing around

It’s no secret animal rights money helped put our mayor into office.

It is also well known he promised to shut our carriage trade down on “day one.”

He’s failed so far, and that’s a good thing for New York.

According to a Quinnipiac poll ⅔’s of all New Yorkers want the mayor to drop it, and pay attention to real issues. 

That’s a landslide.


Homelessness has increased every month 
since the mayor took office back in January.


Despite support for the horses from veterinarians and celebrity, the Mayor plows ahead with new plans for a “pathway to an ultimate ban.”


The Mayor is wrong on this issue. 

I don’t care if he owes this favor to deep pockets that helped elect him. 

Our carriage horses have excellent nutrition and quality shelter, plus regular medical care and 5 weeks guaranteed vacation every year in leafy pastures.

 While our homeless prepare for winter, 
the mayor lumbers on.

equinox is Latin for “equal night”

There’s no better place in the Bronx 
to say goodbye to Summer

than City Island.

Tonight at 10:29pm the sun passes over the equator from north to south making day and night nearly the same.
