From The New York Shitty Inbox: One Of Our Own

A fellow named Todd writes:

Have you seen this?

No, I had not. However, being one who takes the issue of bicyclist/pedestrian safety— and traffic enforcement— quite seriously, I contacted the folks at Permanent records to find out what happened. A very kind fellow named Matthew wrote me back. here’s what he had to say:

Hi Heather… thanks for getting in touch.  I’m a little hesitant to divulge too many of the specifics right now… Meg is recovering from surgery and I don’t want to inadvertently give more details than she is comfortable with.  The accident happened south of Greenpoint on her way up (I believe) Classon, and she was essentially knocked off her bike and then run over by a truck.  Her injuries will likely have her immobile for some time, but all things considered, we’re extremely grateful things aren’t worse.

I’d be thrilled if you’d be willing to share this story and help out our cause here.  You can also let people know that some friends of the shop have already donated some goods, including rare and out of print records, and we’re gonna set up some sort of auction or raffle fundraiser for them… we’ll have those details soon.  And if you’d like more specific details on the actual accident, once Meg is up for it, I’ll put you two in touch and she can get them all to you.

As you can imagine Meg has a big road ahead of her. I suspect I speak on the behalf of everyone reading this tome when I write that I hope she makes a full recovery. Those of you who wish to make a donation so as to help with Meg’s medical expenses can do so via Paypal or by dropping off money, checks and donations for the auction at Permanent Records:

Permanent Records
181 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

Otherwise I’ll post updates, including the details regarding the auction/fundraiser, as I receive them. Stay safe out there folks!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: And Now A Word From Our City Councilman

This evening I was forwarded a most interesting piece of campaign literature which is being distributed at our local housing projects from an anonymous tipster. Without further ado, here it is:

Note that a cell phone number has been provided. So, I suppose, one can ask questions.* I wonder why nothing like this was circulated in Greenpoint? Anyone?

*Or simply pass it along— with a fully changed cell phones with unlimited minutes— to 50th Assembly District youths and tell them it belongs to Santa Claus. Not that I recommend this, mind you.

New York Shitty Day Ender: And Now A Few More Words From Chris Olechowski

(And his “friends”*)

Courtesy of a mailer sent to Chez Shitty!

How many folks do you recognize in the following group photo, 50th Assembly District Democrats?

Speaking as someone who calls Mrs. Klementovicz a neighbor (and a friend— the above footage of her being awesome hails from a meeting a few months ago. A meeting, I’ll note at which Mr. Olechowski was not present.) I really have to wonder if she is aware of the claims Mr. Olechowski has been making in terms of his role in the fight against the TGE plant. I doubt it.** In any case, I found the following endorsement fascinating:

I am proud to support Chris because he has always shown the extraodinary ability to bring our community together. — NYC City Councilmember Stephen Levin.

Behold Mr. Olechowski’s “community building” rhetoric for yourself.

(No Comment)

**As of today, August 22, she is. Here is a rundown of what happened:

…just came back from shopping on Manhattan Ave and Irene was strolling by, (For those that don’t know Irene was an activist from at least the 1970’s, she’s 83 now and was one of the leaders that eventually got the Greenpoint Incinerator shut down.) I told her the story that “some one”, leaving Chris’ name out, who was running for political office was taking credit for the TGE battle. She raised her eyebrows only as Irene can and at the end I told her it was Chris and her brows went up another notch. …she told me this story about supporting Chris. Chris approached her for support on environmental issues and Irene asked, “but what did you do?” Chris answered, “I supported you.” I’ll leave it at that…

So there have you.

*For example, this other mailer we received today.
