Denis Hamill wrote an opinion piece about legalizing prostitution in New York in the Daily News today. Despite the fact that it’s never going to happen, it’s a brilliant idea. Imagine blowing off steam after a hard day at work by getting blown. That’s a real happy hour. The tax revenue and decreased costs in policing against prostitution would be worth it. Like he says, marijuana is decriminalized and gambling is more accessible than ever. Let’s just go all the way with this thing. Whoring is already legal on Wall St.

I’ve never driven a boat before, so maybe I’m not the person to talk. But if I was sailing with a giant crane loaded up on my ship and I was about to go under a bridge, much less one of the most historical bridges in the world, I’d probably measure to see if it was going to fit. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen last night and a crane that was being towed on a barge plowed into a scaffolding under the Brooklyn Bridge. No one was hurt and experts say there was no structural damage to the bridge, but there’s a giant hole in scaffold that was being used to paint the bridge. What a boneheaded move. Who the fuck is sailing the boat? Mr. Bean? Even a little kid pulling a wheelbarrow knows better than to stack things too high. Now it looks like Cloverfield is running amok in Lower Manhattan. Of course, the ship kept sailing and investigators are trying to get more information about what happened. Someone is about to get charged with a hit-and-sail.
