  • Live/Work in NYC?

    Posted by David Foster on November 3rd, 2011 (All posts by )

    …or are you planning a trip there in the near future?

    If you’re down around the financial district, you might stop in at the Milk Street Cafe.

    Here’s why it’s important.

      That is a damned shame. I can’t patronize them but I may send them a donation just because.

    2. David Foster Says:

      See also this commentary on the “occupy” movement in Oakland.

    3. Dan from Madison Says:

      You are correct in starting to use quotation marks. I started using them when referring to the Wisconsin “protests” pretty quickly.

      I posted elsewhere that it might be a good idea, to move the “protest” of paid performers, professional students and dope dealers to different locales within the city. In the spirit of shared sacrifice all sectors of Gotham should be exposed to the “message” of the movement. Why should Milk St. (and countless others affected by the state-sanctioned chaos)take the pipe on this? I’m thinking that next week, the whole crew be moved (at the city’s expense of course!) up to 125th St.

      The great unwashed camped outside of Clinton’s high rise crib, drums and tents installed directly by the door of Sylvia’s, so “Reverend” Al can watch the oppressed urinate on po-lice cars while he stuffs his face with chicken and waffles!

      The week after, Bloomberg’s place, after that, off to Brooklyn, Chuck Schumers…

      David:

      Thanks so much for the link.

      I’m glad to report that because of all the publicity generated the police removed the barricades yesterday. My son-in-law, who freqently eats at the Milk Street Cafe, went there for lunch and reports that the place was packed. Hopefully, Mr. Epstein will recover financially and hire back all the employees he was forced to lay off.

      Some thuggist behavior toward a female reporter at Occupy DC.
