I'll be the one who wonders about "white guy in his forties". That is a rather interesting description, both gendered, racist and age-ist. I'd really like to hear the other side of this story. It sounds like it was 50/50 on who "assaulted" the other first. Did you really just "wiggle" past the guy? Or did your bag shove him aside? He obviously shouldn't have grabbed your bag but then again maybe you shouldn't have shoved him aside?
All this dirty money talk gives me a sad.
I see the backlash to the backlash has begun.
The only thing America loves more than the humiliation of a successful person is the eventual comeback. Kim as victim will be the new trope for so-called "cultural criticism"
The disclosure of this highly sensitive information, including the sources and methods of intel collection, is a serious crime. Snowden should be and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I rather doubt that Greenwald or the other journalists are in any danger of being indicted (much to Glenn's disappointment as he would clearly love to have a trial) given their First Amendment rights and the simple fact that, unlike Snowden, they didn't sign a NDA with the NSA and swear to keep all this information secret for 70 years.

and Most of the Time rings true like it was written in my soul
"Most of the time
She ain’t even in my mind
I wouldn’t know her if I saw her
She’s that far behind
Most of the time
I can’t even be sure
If she was ever with me
Or if I was with her"
Oh, but Silvio and Brownsville Girl are so damn good!
"I can tell you fancy, I can tell you plain
You give something up for everything you gain
Since every pleasure's got an edge of pain
Pay for your ticket and don't complain"
Can we talk about the rooftop bar at the Refinery Hotel on 38th? Because I LOVE it.
