Ready For Mayor Weiner?

Let me jump right in - there's a heap of things to get to, dear readers.

The disaster in Oklahoma - please consider donating $10 directly to the Oklahoma City Food Pantry by texting "FOOD" to 32333, to help those affected by the tornado.

I came to an interesting conclusion the other day. 

PEOPLE WANT TO BE LIED TO.

How can I say such a thing?

I'll relay to you something that happened to me not too long ago. I was attending a club in Williamsburg one evening, dressed in my leisure suit. I was out in front of a favored venue, when a lovely woman came up to me and asked, "Are you a runway model"?

A runway model.

I replied, "What runway? JFK? LaGuardia?"

That ended that little dalliance before it even started. But I've had that story bouncing around in my head for quite some time, because there was a lesson in there that I was not quite catching.

She wanted me to LIE TO HER.

Now, let me tell you - guys lie to get laid like the sun will come up in the sky. I'm certain that I've embellished the truth here or there in that very same pursuit...but being a runway model? That's a hell of a lie to try to keep up, yes?

But...that would have WORKED.

Well, I'm not trying to get into your pants. I don't really want to know what you've got under there. I just want to know why you prefer the LIE to the TRUTH.

Is Anthony Weiner lying to you and I when he says that he's sorry about sharing his pecker with the world? Can he overcome that faux pas and become the next mayor of New York City?

Is CBS lying when they say that the show Brooklyn D.A. isn't an informercial for Brooklyn D.A. Charles "Joe" Hynes? We're going to know more in a couple of hours, aren't we?

Tomorrow is the March Against Monsanto. I plan to be out there, and I hope to see you. Ask me anything - if I can't give you an answer, someone with me will.

Remember - Monsanto equals DEATH.
