Crime is on the Rise in NYC

Hmmm. Could it be because no one can carry arms in their defense, heck you have to be really careful about carrying a pocket knife. :-(

So far I have kept my promise of not spending any money in that city until Bloomberg is gone.

Criminal Justice Gone Wrong

Really? This PoS MIGHT stay in prison for four whole years?

Niagara County Judge Sara Sperrazza gave Bolvin the maximum -- one-and-a-third to four years in state prison -- and awarded a full order of protection to the family.

What am I missing that this was the maximum sentence that she could assign. I thinks people like this were the exact reason that the gallows were invented. Just sayin'

Oh and then I see this.

These folks get 12 years for being stupid. I'm confused..

Where Has the Summer Gone?

I can't believe it's been so long since I've posted anything. Somehow I lost the month of August, the kids start school in a few weeks, the nights are finally cooling off and geese are actually flying south. Fall is almost here. Of course in Western New York summer is two months long at best.

We had the annual family vacation in North Bay, Ontario during the first week of August, my wife's family has been going there since the 30s. It was hot, but at least we didn't have the humidity we've had here at home.

The youngest learning to drive the rental boat..


The oldest trying to ski. He did get up, but being the kinda guy I am, I'd rather post the picture of him falling, :-) especially since I've only ever tried once and did not do well.
