Going to hit this beach again, to see if it was cleaned up, as per the mayor’s promise a couple of weeks ago — this weekend it was still a cesspool, so bad my son nearly gagged from the stench, but last night, at the Dem Mayoral Debate in Brighton Beach, a neighbor told me that they did start cleanup of the beach. (Beach in the photo of course, click on it for larger version/gallery.)
We’ll see today or this weekend, I suppose.
I’m going to post my notes sans impressions of the debate later on, I’ll have an article on it published for the small paper I work for, too, that comes out Monday.
I’m still reserving judgement for later — I tend to actually feel sorry for politicians, as if they’ll be crushed by my lack of vote, much like my turning someone down for a date.
I really get emotionally involved in my politics in a strange way, don’t I?
But the notes I’ll leave up, since not everyone has channel 12 in NYC and I didn’t notice coverage in any of my RSS feeds this morning.
