from pillar to post

“I should be a postage stamp. 
That’s the only way I’ll ever get licked.”

Muhammad Ali

low bidder wins!

Interior Designers earn about 20% of their overall budget.

An architect will invoice about 7% for designing a multimillion dollar house.

And genius Norman Seabrook may have just thrown away a 21 year career and a cushy retirement for .3%.

Not 3%. Three tenths of ONE percent.

Prosecutors say Seabrook agreed to illegally invest $20 million in union retirement funds in a struggling hedge-fund, earning a $60,000 kickback delivered in a Ferragamo bag. 

Seabrook's arrest is the latest development in a growing corruption probe into the fundraising practices of another city genius, the mayor.


Court documents reveal an angry Seabrook complained 
"It’s about time Norman Seabrook got paid.”


Oh, he’ll get paid alright. Take a closer look.

This is what criminal stupidity looks like.

(Please have a smarter weekend than these guys.)

she's electric

of yes, Dollar Bill, you so are

The Mayor is keeping dirty company these days and the fan is standing by.

New York is descending into one of the most far-reaching municipal scandals in modern times.

So did Bill open up and help to get to the bottom of all this?


Not on your life.

He did the opposite, requiring staffers to sign a second confidentiality agreement, in conflict of their Federal obligation to testify. 

A former city official who has worked under multiple administrations told the GOTHAMIST:

I don't care what they think about me,
And I don't care what they say.


I don't care what they think if you're leaving,
I'm gonna beg you to stay.

I don't care if they start to avoid me,
I don't care what they do.

I don't care about anything else
but being with you, being with you.

Trumping the shark
