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

Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week and Washington DC has gone crazy (or crazier) ever since.

I finally had to weigh in.

When I was in college, I worked in a movie theater.

I've talked about the experience before, but not the racism overtone that pervaded the place.

There was also sexism and age discrimination.

But it's the racism I want to tackle this time out.

It was my birthday this past week. Thanks for asking.

I spent the day with my sons, and reflected on how I chose the activities we embarked upon.

I figured out that I've driven 7 cars regularly over the past 36 years of being a licensed driver.

And they have all been made by two manufacturers!

Back in the day.... there were video stores. Quentin Tarantino worked in one.

Then Blockbuster Video came and wrecked that business model (not to mention the basis for one of my film scripts).

What happened next was the advent of Netflix and film mailers. Which ultimately became a venue for video streaming services.

The goal is the same: Charge people to watch product on a device. The technology is what has evolved and changed the industry.

The MTA just enacted another fare hike.

There was immediate, understandable protest.

But this is a broken record and an indefensible system.

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.

00:0000:00

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.
