And remember when I let that escaped lunatic in the house 'cause he was dressed like Santa Claus? Well you have a gambling problem!














I'm all for the chance of losing your baby's milk money to the icy professionals of Pokerstars.net, but aren't the odds long against fortune smiling upon a downtown transportation solution?

Gilbert has called the negotiations with Forest City complicated but said the discussions are positive. Ratner agreed. He added one major holdup is parking.
"The problem is how do we figure out the parking," Ratner asked. "They have so many cars, we have so many cars."
Duh! Get off the bus, Gus,
let the full house, Mouse,
take all your money, honey.
'bout time we're movers, groovers
throwin' dice -- nice landin' on big time.
Oh, organized crime is fine,
(anything to keep the King in gold n' wine)
but a Joe Pesci accent ain't sublime.

I was going to read your post but I didn't want to be fooled again...
Just kidding...

Graves, you swine!

I just read this morning that the Environmental Impact Report for moving the Oakland As to San Jose completely neglected parking (and only mentioned traffic in passing) - presumably because the stadium will be one block away from the Train Station.

He-he. Trains!

Regards,

Tengrain

PS - Eat at Ray's!

Indians everywhere! And a casino following. Next thing ya know the dang Polynesians will be demanding one in Havai'i too! I'm all for em actually. That'll teach whitey to take over lands owned by somebody else!

tim, Chimpy? Is that you? Fool me once, won't get fooled again.

tengrain, trains are socialist tools used to keep god-fearing patriots in line.

sherry, if I was them, I'd get back at whitey any way I could and if bleeding their wallets dry was the most enjoyable, non-jail time way, deal them cards.

Talking about Simpson is an endless topic. They are the greatest cartoons i have ever seen and the most famous one. They are my favorite also. So keep posting with them.

All I have to say is I have eight days till vacation. Of course part of that time will be on the Atlantic coast of Florida watching the jellyfish flirt with floating tar balls but at least I will be out of town.

The South Carolina 2010 primaries are June 8th and we have plenty of oily shit rolling around on shore right now.

I'm told that one really nice thing about Oklahoma is that there's plenty of free parking. You just have to hope your vehicle doesn't get hit by the occasional twister.

It's times like this that I'm glad I don't drive. :-)

Ah, the old Casino Solution. Always the answer to economic woes.

Not that this has anything to do with the post, but casino owner Daniel Gilbert has the tightest face I've ever seen. He isn't dead is he?

Tim said...

Mission Accomplished! He he hehehe

I once met with Ratner when I was looking for a job - as a favor to my dad. He thankfully never contacted me.

I'll be in the Golden City of Broken Dreams this weekend (as I am every 2 weeks or so) and will have the wonder of family chaos to distract me from the decay of progress. I'm not sure which I'd prefer.

BB, if you catch a tar ball, have you thought how you'll prepare it for that evening's dinner?

SWA, if I ever had to move to Oklahoma shudder, I'd look for an underground house with an underground garage.

tomcat, I don't blame you. Driving and not paying attention to the road as you come up with excuses as to why you lost your life savings at the craps table don't mix.

tom, we haven't seen Mr. Gilbert in years, but the rumor persists that he's still alive.

tim, now why'd you have to go and bring Chimpy in this?

ricky, bit of a wanker, huh.

Family chaos or the Free stamp, now there's a choice worthy of Sophie.
