So a parking lot is more appropriate for the East Ave Preservation District? The Morgan design acutally appears to have more trees and green stuff, they didn't even have to throw in a vegetable garden.
Not only is this movie exceptionally dull, but all the characters are like paper doll people. No one is likeable. The director seems to assume that we 'know' all the people, and not a single one has a defined personality, or has their role in the movie defined. It is also odd that the home looks in need of a coat of paint and a few more lighting fixtures. It displays yellowing age as it naturally would if photographed 70 years later, but not in its own day. 90 minutes wasted.
comment on Gus's pickles. The former manager opened The Pickle Guys just down the street from the original location with many of the former employees and a second store in Brooklyn(Delish) I agree about the NYC comment buy the way. A real NYC deli does not just give hand out pickles on the table. Missing from this 'NYC Deli' are a Tongue sandwich, Kishka, and Knishe. This is not to take anything away from Harry G's. It is a great place to eat, just not a NYC Deli great place to eat.
"And senators, most Republicans and some Democrats, saw the 2014 election in front of them and voted for job preservation."
If you want to be a newspaper pundit when you grow up, here's a can't-miss rule of thumb: Half the time, attack elected representatives for IGNORING their constituents' wishes. Then the half of the time, attack them for FOLLOWING their constituents' wishes. Heads I win, tails you lose!
Oh, and complain about "partisanship" even when nearly a third of the majority caucus votes against its leadership (as with the semiautomatic ban).
It is not "provincial" to write in a ROC-centric manner for a ROC media outlet. However, it is the height of provincialism to believe that your city/region has the best of something, or in the typical NYer's case, everything. I cringe every time I hear "real NYC deli" or "real NYC pizza" as if it is borne of a formula that is utterly irreplicable elsewhere. Okay, back to my garbage plate and Cream Ale...
Chuck Heston died in 2008. Did anyone get his rifle yet?
.Ms. Warren has had three years as city council president to focus her attention on the city school situation and to convince her colleagues on the council that this area should be their first priority. But for some reason she neglected to do this. Nor, when one reads her biography and personal "mission statement” on the city council’s web site, does she give the condition of Rochester’s schools even a passing mention.
Such overnight conversions may be genuine if one is St. Paul on the road to Damascus. But when claimed by politicians running for higher office they tend to appear cynical and disingenuous.
I have often read your restaurants reviews, always finding something amusing about the fact that food writing exists in Rochester. Practically an oxymoron. As pedestrian as the City paper, or the art scene of Rochester.
The review of Harry G's was amusing as usual. It is nothing even remotely close to a deli in NYC. I suspect you've never been to Sarges. What does Harry G's offer that resembles anything at Katzs? The best part of your review, "real delis down in NYC only serve half-sours rather than the fully done garlic dills they hand out at Harry G's." I have to wonder if you've ever eaten at a real NYC deli. Have you ever heard of Gus's Pickles (sadly gone) or ever had a real pickle (which I think you're trying to say is a Kosher dill)? I realize that factchecking at City probably does not exist. But plenty of room for provincial attitudes.
Sorry, no pickle at that all-supreme public market even comes close.
I think you and City should stick to covering red hots and 2 Vines.
Indeed Joe Klein helped bring former RCSD Superintendent Jean-Claude Brizard to Rochester. Joe had a plan then. He has one now (although in my humble, but informed view, it's a very, very bad plan, and even dangerous in some ways), at least he has a one, which raises the critically important question: WHAT IS THE ROCHESTER BOARD OF EDUCATION AND THE CURRENT SUPERINTENDENT'S PLAN? They don't appear to have one, which is a big part of the reason why people like Joe Klein can so easily implement theirs. Bold, courageous, unbought, unbossed, committed leadership is clearly a big part of what's missing in the Rochester City School District.
This is going to be an awesome campaign season. Cover it all, City! Cover it all.
MJN - My sarcasm meter jumped into the red zone with your post.
Your point is understood, well-made even.
However, even with the element of common-sense you bring, I can't get worked up in favor of any additional restriction - no matter how practical, reasonable or common-sensical - to any of our freedoms.
We have lost too many in the last few decades. Freedoms of communication (Patriot Act), against unreasonable search and seizure (TSA), loss of property to eminent domain (Kelo), federal minimum sentences and others... all these and more have led America away from being the beacon of liberty she used to be, and into the "modern" world of limited freedoms (in a macro sense) we live in today.
We may have plenty of day-to-day freedoms left (thank God for the 1st Amendment), but in a full understanding of where we've been and what we've done, we're less free today than we've been in a long, long time.
Until we regain some freedoms for Americans who aren't bankers, politicians or lobbyists, giving up ANY freedoms is a sacrifice no one should be willing to make.
Even commentators sympathetic to Prof. Obama are pointing out his incompetence on this one. A smarter politician would have focused on getting background checks done before the Newtown hysteria dissipated, rather than getting wrapped around the axle over bans that would never pass. Instead, thanks to his ivory tower cluelessness, the professor loses juice with nothing to show for it.
Of course, that analysis assumes he actually wanted to get something done. The fact is Obama said nothing about gun control either time he ran for president. His histrionics on the subject now is nothing but theater. And it is a particularly execrable example of victim porn, cynically calculated to agitate his lunatic fringe base for the midterms while shaking down his Hollywood sugar daddies.
So Mrs. Warren, after her dis-honest fumbling of the issue of gay marriage (the only thing on her twitter feed other than self promottion are quotes from Rick Warren, champion against gay marriage in california), now has sided with Jeb Bush and the so called education "reformers" who believe that privatization , union busting and more endless testing are the solutions to urban education. The identity politics alarm system at City newspaper must be shooting sparks! By the way, if Ms. Warren's full time job is working for David Gantt, does anyone think she is working full time in his office only in that capacity? Isn't she then basically running for Mayor full time while being paid by Gantt? So isn't David Gantt essentially paying her to run for mayor right now? I'm not accusing her of running for mayor for monetary reasons, but isn't kind of weird that David Gantt is paying her salary while she runs? Alex White is running his own business whilst running for Mayor and Richards spends about 100 hrs a week being Mayor. Weird. And no one will ever ask about it.
