Goofy Lawmakers Blame Loud Brunch Eaters

    Lawmakers in Albany say they couldn't go with 8AM openings was because Community Boards in NYC complained brunch eaters are too noisy. Really...that's what they said. It was reported in Liz Benjamin's wildly popular blog.
     This is supposed to be the city that never sleeps.  I mean really, think about it.....Wouldn't noise complaints come at night when DJs and bands play in clubs ?
      The real reason. They don't like to parcel out freedom and they want to be able to go back to the clergy and brag how they preserved half the morning for  going to church.

That might be true. Many have to go outside to smoke.

These so-called "lawmakers" remind me of a radio show back in the '40s. It was called "It Pays To Be Ignorant". Never heard it myself, that's even before my time, but I like the name.

Don't they have authority at the county and city level to address that if that was the real issue?

"Parceling out" freedom is a NYS tradition. And with Benito and his followers, it can only get worse. But this is what the golfers want. So many NYers have an appendage in the trough they think this is a fine way of life.

Speaking of goofy lawmakers...
Your Harvard Gal proposed some BS legislation that has to do with business college tuition and tax savings. As if our tax code is not complicated enough already.

And who helped write it? The people who will make money helping businesses navigate the tax law and the people who will make money administering the accounts.

Why doesn't she sponsor something that would actually reduce the outlandish costs the colleges charge, instead of something that helps feed the college monster? Why doesn't she sponsor something that would hold colleges to the same standard that Trump university is being held to? You know, make them track the success rate of their graduates and disclose those terrible statistic to the suckers who enroll.
