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

AM NY dubbed last week's Mayoral debate "Dietl Mania," because of the presence of gadfly (with no chance of winning) Bo Dietl.

Some local commentary, so be forewarned.

I spent a 20-hour day volunteering as an election worker in the New York primary on September 12.

I decided at some point in the morning to grab a piece of paper and record several sections with my thoughts on the experience, and to document things that happened at the polls.

I talked about getting a parking violation and getting towed a few weeks ago.

This week, I dwell more specifically on parking violations and the way things used to be.

The MTA has unleashed its "Summer of Hell" for commuters, specifically those who take the LIRR.

This gives me an opportunity to clear out a bunch of MTA-related articles I've been meaning to discuss on the podcast.

Anthony "the Mooch" Scaramucci lasted less than two weeks as White House Communications Director. He was a disaster, and a microcosm for the Trump administration.

Yes, the political talk is back this week.

The day after I purchased a new car (discussed last podcast) but the day BEFORE I picked up that same car, I experienced a very long day.

We just passed the Fourth of July holiday.

I did not see fireworks this year, but that's been the rule since my kids were born.

If I see fireworks, it generally entails a babysitter and lots of extra planning.

Congress tried to pass the AHCA in daylight and failed, so they went to cover of darkness and got the votes they needed.

The Senate attempted stealth passage but fell over their own feet. They will try again, but will need something the GOP hasn't shown recently – unity.

I entered my younger son in a contest to "Get Your Kid On The Cover" of a magazine.

In return, a children's modeling agency expressed some interest.

It was decided that he wasn't ready for such an experience.

But when his older brother was the same age, he underwent an even more difficult transition experience from school to school until the right educational setting was found.
