The Return of The Red Menace

This was the first weekend in which my wife and I agreed to avoid the toxic dump of my family, opting instead, for the beach club and our friends.  I was looking forward to the weekend.  The weather report was calling for high 80's, tons of sun and great beach weather.  What the weathermen didn't know was that there was a storm brewing.  A storm disguised as your worst clown nightmare whilst tripping on bad acid.
That's right, my mother in law returned form the fiery depths of hell Florida to wreak havoc on my family.

Todays Lesson - Pedophiles.

Today was my son's grade wide park day.  The school does this in the spring, for each grade, so the families can have one day of fun and games in Central Park. Each class in the grade decorates "team" tee shirts and they play all kinds of games, all under the hot sun. 

I wound up joining them as a chaperon and met a few parents, sweating my ass off and got a frightening lesson in pedophiles and the things people will do to provide the images these suck fucks seem to love.

My Son Snubs Jeter and Reggie Jackson Steals a Pen

So I'm walking home from work and I pass by a watch store that sells very expensive, high end watches. There's a red carpet out front, photographers and a small crowd. I slow down as I pass by and peek into the window and I see a NY Yankee's uniform on a mannequin, with the number 44 on the back.

Now, every New Yorker knows that 44 was Reggie Jackson so now I'm really curious as to what's going on.

Turns out Frank Meuller is selling a Reggie Jackson line of watches and this was the launch party.

I race home and tell my son that Mr. October himself is around the corner and, if he wants, we can try and get a baseball signed by him.

Sleep Tight Children, The Bogey Man is No More. For Now

So they killed Bin Laden.  Big deal.  Truth is, most people have figured the man to be dead for years.  Or no longer a threat of any kind.  This doesn't include those that never really thought the man was dangerous to begin with.

Let's assume, for the sake of this entry, that he was killed some time in the last week or two.  Do we really need the media coverage to play this up like we just took Hitler out?  I don't know what the news looks like anywhere but here in NYC and, to be honest, it's been disgusting.
