I like hanging out in front of the Bank. I’ve been doing it forever. People ask me why I don’t walk around more and enjoy the sites. I usually tell them that I don’t need to walk around, because the whole world passes by right in front of me there. Well, finally I have actual proof of that statement. You see, the world does pass by right in front of me.

Shea Stadium is almost gone. Here is a very surreal image that I took today.

I thought that since 9/11, no planes were supposed to fly over Manhattan. This one went right down 5th Avenue, towards the Empire State Building. Kinda eerie.

I’ve got a new list that I’m building, and I need your help. I’m calling it Things to be Mindful Of, and it’s meant to be

A primer for the youth of America

And a refresher for their parents and grandparents

I’m sure you have some ideas for this list, so send them over, I’ll sort them, judge them as worthy and post them as I receive them. Our youth need help, and this will definitely help them develop into kinder, gentler, humans. At least, that’s my hope and desire.

They call this the hottest video in the history of history. I actually think they might be right. My new hero is Leo.

If we need 24 million more smokers each year to fully fund sCHIP, then why is there $75 million for smoking cessation programs in the stimulus bill ?

I say we should help Henrietta. Henrietta pleads for help. Now, the white broad in the white outfit, needs to be investigated by the Secret Service, cause she is spooky…

My rear window was shattered this morning, and I didn’t even notice it when I got in the car and left. Cost nearly $1,000 to replace it.

We had another pretty snowfall the other day. Me and my honey walked thru the Powell’s Cove park and took some nice pics. Ro even managed to make a snowman for everyone to enjoy.

The Musings is even popular in Gaza. I’m sure our friends in Palestine know we support them, so long as the approach is with ink and paper, instead of rockets and mortars. You show up in a suit with a smile, and all of the USA will ensure the Israeli’s do the right thing.

Well, our 2008 TPM session closed. All’s I can say is

Words of wisdom sent in by the Big Guy, WFP.

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.”

The late Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931 to 2005

Here’s a great new PEZ shirt, that KP came across. Hey, I’m fine with these things.

It seems that someone is paying attention and reading the Musings. Looks like Citibank may be trying to get out of the $400 million marketing deal naming the new Mets ballpark. After all, you can’t bitch about a $50 million dollar jet, when you want to spend 8x more money for naming rights. I say they should leave it as Shea Stadium, or if it must change call it Citizens field, or how about Jackie Robinson Stadium ? Field of Musings has a nice ring to it, no ? It’s time for a new Musings poll – What should they name the new Mets ballpark ?

What should they call the new Mets stadium
Shea Stadium
Citizens Field
Jackie Robinson Stadium
Field of Musings
Who Cares
Jacks Musings Never Forget

There were a bunch of Mets fans and geese hanging around Shea Stadium yesterday. Some sort of gathering for the fans to say their final good-bye as the old stadium is near final demolition.
