MrJeff2000 Explains It All It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad, um what was I talking about again?

The MTA just enacted another fare hike.

There was immediate, understandable protest.

But this is a broken record and an indefensible system.

Nothing excites weather people more than a "weather event."

And a big one was expected this past week.

In some ways, it disappointed. In others, not as much.

Took my kids on a trip to Denver this past weekend.

Here are some stories of our travels.

I picked up 1,400 books this week to sell in December as part of my temple's annual Bazaar.

The book sale routinely gathers collectors and dealers who spend three days going through beteween 20,000 and 40,000 books.

With my involvement, the organizers are hoping to get closer to 40,000. And if they continue to work me like the past few weeks, they might just reach that goal.

Looking at the top stories in one edition of the daily newspaper in February 2017.

The CitiBike program is expanding into upper Manhattan and areas of Brooklyn.

Staten Island feels ignored, but then again, it wouldn't be Staten Island otherwise.

The 2nd Avenue Subway expansion (part one) has attracted riders. But will it ever get to Part 2?

Finally, board games are making a comeback in the Digital Age.

Trump's cabinet picks seem to be squeaking by.

Coca-Cola is ending one of my minor obsessions, it's loyalty program.

The Port Authority is starting to make noise about building an AirTrain from LaGuardia to the LIRR at Willet's Point.

Finally, there's a push to bring free wi-fi to NYC airports.

Penn Station in NYC is a central transportation hub. As such, it attracts more than just commuters. It attracts people who seek to solicit money from them as they go about their travels. This episode, I recall a few from previous podcasts and add some new ones.

Our Vulgarian-in-Chief continues to be an embarrassment for the nation.

From refusing to shake hands with black ministers to not opening doors for his wife to signing orders preventing the EPA from announcing any changes to its policies (which means lessening of federal regulations of emissions standards is coming).

The disgusting reaction to his inauguration and the subsequent Womens Marches, plus the outrageous lying of his flunkies to the media and American Public.

It's a disgrace and it's going to get worse, folks. Much worse.

Happy 250th podcast!

This week, I put a brake on the politics and tell two quick stupid crime stories about idiots and their motor vehicles.
