The U.N. is said to be contemplating delaying the vote on the application for Palestinian statehood - http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/la-fg-un-palestinians-20110921,0,4194458.story - at the same time, former NYC Mayor Edward Koch is praising President Obama for his premptive vote denying them statehood.
Speaking of the U.N., the traffic snarls must be an immense pain-in-the-tuchis for the denizens of the East Side. Hey - it beats drive-bys in Brownsville, yes?
Facebook has taken a page from Twitter and is now posting instant updates on the right side of the FB interface. I'm ambivalent about the feature at the moment - I'd appreciate your feedback.
I want to give a hearty "good day" to the bronzed gentleman and his lovely associate who departed at Times Square this morning - I hope you do indeed have a good day.

It's unconscionable to put someone to death without being utter certain of their complicity in the crime it is said that they have committed.
The Wall Street Occupation continues, and yet...no real coverage. Considering that the movement may have been suborned, this may be a good thing in disguise. Yahoo seems to be complicit in keeping this from getting out by blocking any mail with the terms "occupy" and "Wall Street" in either the subject or the body. Considering that their spam filter is like a bloody walk-in closet, I'm amazed that they could actually get this to work. I could be richer that Bill Gates and Warren Buffet combined with all of the Nigerian Scams I have in my inbox.
I understand that Israel and Russia have liquidated their U.S. treasury bills to a large degree - what does this portend for the viability of our nation?

Keep on smiling - maybe someone will wish you a good day out of the blue - meanwhile, I'm signing off, for now.
