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.

The President is a charlatan.

His administration is a shame.

This past week was a series of disasters and embarassments to our nation and around the world.

Totally did not get around to recording a new episode this week.

The reprise is from when many of us unfortunately learned the name "Martin Shkreli" from the first time.

 The CEO of Mylan, makers of the EpiPen, announced that the cost of the life-saving devices would skyrocket to $600. There was an uproar, but that didn't affect the price. In fact, the company announced a generic brand for half the price. Why? Why indeed.

My next door neighbor's mother went for a walk last year and disappeared for 36 hours.

When she came back, there was some odd behavior.

And it recently recurred.

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.

Labor Day weekend just passed.

My mother wanted to buy some thrift store spoon for a very specific reason.

I was never a big "play sports" guy.

Did some running, played badminton (yes) and tennis.

Some of my "play sports" stories this week.

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.

I've been volunteering to do book sorts to prep for my temple's annual Book Sale.

We put out 22,000 books last December and have pre-sorted 11,000 for this coming year.

Oh the joys of being a volunteer...
