Re: Supreme Court will hear D.C. guns case

Home away from home
Home away from home


As a non legally-trained (but hopefully law-school bound) liberal, I detest the wording of the Second Amendment. However, it's there in the Constitution, and I just don't think there's a valid argument to be made that it doesn't apply to an individual right. I probably hate that part of the Constitution almost as much as Dick Cheney seems to hate most of the other parts, but if we don't uphold the whole document it falls apart.

Maybe that's true in part for producers of "fine art," but NYC is also a media capital, and media is almost as much of an economic engine for the city as the finance industry, and the media are consumed by everyone.

I'm not even sure what parasitic animal to compare finance workers to...

I don't see anything in the article that implies that - you sound a bit defensive.

Re: Parking Authority told not to blow "horn" while writing tickets

Home away from home


I agree it kind of stinks, but on the other hand, they were under no obligation to blow their horns in the first place. The sign says when you can't park, and it's up to you to move your car during that time. I suppose it would be a hardship for a homebound person with a disability, but otherwise I don't see the big deal.

Hovnanian has been struggling for a while now, no? I think they built pretty heavily in the areas being hit hardest by the real estate crash.

Re: Lofts in JC (starting with 150 Bay Street)
#97
Home away from home
Home away from home


150 Bay St. is probably the safest location in town that has lofts. My wife and I lived in a live/work space (that wasn't exactly legal) in that area, and we found it to be pretty safe, just a bit deserted.

That was before the 150 Bay and Waldo lofts were even finished, so now there's a lot more foot traffic than there used to be. If you can afford the rents (which I'm not familiar with), that neighborhood is your best bet.

Re: JC Parking Code of Ethics

Home away from home


This thread is borderline retarded.

Cars do not come in a standard length, and a curb is not divided into equal-sized "parking spaces."

When you park, unless you find that rare perfect-sized parking space, you either have to get as close as possible (with breathing room) to the car in front of you, leaving extra space behind you, or get as close as possible to the car behind you, leaving extra space in front of you.

If the car you park closer to leaves before you do, you suddenly appear to be taking up more space than you need. There is no way to maximize space usage in street parking.

That was my first thought too - Hovnanian has been reporting some financial troubles, and my guess is the problems are even worse than reported.

But OTOH, how much of the building actually burned? What can they actually get from insurance for this? How will it affect their plans for the site? I guess we'll find out.

I know this is going to sound funny, but I apologize to both Kitten and Jangie. You're right, I've been unreasonably condescending and insulting and it was uncalled for.

Anyway, I heard Sean Hannity (not by choice!) mention this, so it seems to be attracting attention.

Actually, the Jersey Journal is reporting that police successfully broke up this wolf pack crime ring by uncovering their secret underground wolf pack den! Unfortunately, their evil genius leader escaped.

I honestly don't get the "wolf pack" label, like it's some kind of new trend - it's a bunch of guys beating someone up. It's sick, but it's nothing new, and "wolf pack" is just a sexy term to sell newspapers.

How do you know he went to the media? Maybe a reporter showed up at the scene and asked questions.

Anyway, even if he did, so what? And what if he wants to file a lawsuit? I sure as hell would.

Something to hide? I'm a regular poster here. A few people on this board even know me. Who are you and where do you get off?

Re: Summer's Over, But is the Crime Wave?

If anything, it's the other way around - high crime cities tend to be the poor ones, and lower income people are more likely to vote democrat. Cities that are richer are more likely to vote republican.

The political parties are not the cause of crime rates. And by the way, fun fact: NYC crime actually dropped significantly under David Dinkins because he put tons of new police on the street. Giuliani basically just rode the trend (not to mention the rising economy) and claimed the credit.

I'm not surprised that people responded the way they did - the crime is a problem and people are afraid. But bringing in the guard is just a dumb-ass militaristic fantasy, and it will never work. Why not put more and better trained police out there instead?
