New York Shitty Day Starter: By Their Friends Ye Shall Know Them
On Friday, July 3, 2009 I wrote (in this post):
Some of you probably know ground has been broken for the new soccer field which will grace Bushwick Inlet Park. What you probably do not know is (per a most curious anonymous source) I have been told there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony with none other than our fair Mayor as well as â€œother elected officials and Commissioner Benepeâ€ this upcoming Monday, July 6, 2009! The festivities will kick off at either 9:00 or 10:00 a.m. (I am awaiting confirmation for all of thisâ€” if/when I get a firm time and date I will post them here.)
Well kids, I have a confirm on the time: between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony For the New Soccer Field At Bushwick Inlet Park
Monday, July 6, 2009
Time: 10:00 â€“ 11:00 a.m. (closer to 11:00)
Brooklyn, New York 11211
Why not swing by and see the select few who were invited to this most auspicious event?
Well, here’s the “local media”. Aaron Short (A Short Story), Juliet Linderman (Greenpoint Gazette), and Jeff Mann (Greenpoint Gazette). I was uninvited.
But not unconcerned.
My concern involves a short story.
A VERY short story indeed!
A post that is comprised only of comments.
This wasn’t the case last week. You can read the rest of the comments here.
Which brings me back to this short story. It was excised. Follows is facsimile of it since Mr. Short has seen to censor himself so as to curry favor. With the right people.
You must be desperate if you’re pimping for votes in north Brooklyn, David. In the cockfight between you and John on Bedford. You lost. Plain and simple.
I vote old school “Texas Style”, e.g; I do not vote for a candidate, I vote against the one who offends me most. It’s like picking between syphilis and gonnorrhea. If Lucifer himself was to put his name on the ballot I’d vote for him. AGAINST YOU. For the simple reason that I little doubt the devil himself could wreak more havoc and destruction on north Brooklyn than you, David Yassky, already have.
UPDATE, 2:50 p.m.: This story on A Short Story is back up! See the comments for Mr. Short’s explanation as to its disappearance.
