“At the heart of New York City is a vibrant community of strong women in entertainment, media, and politics whose commitment to philanthropy is inspirational,” said Michelle Sobrino Stearns, Group Publisher/Chief Revenue Officer of Variety, in a statement released Monday. “We are delighted to be celebrating these women along with the women profiled in our annual New York Women’s Impact List with our partners at Lifetime.”
Ms. Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, “will be honored for her work with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, which empowers kids to develop lifelong healthy habits,” Variety added.
Among the ideas under consideration is a $6 charge to leave the city’s northeast sector, which includes the Financial District, weekdays between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.
Hey – kind of like a ransom, no? The Toll receipt should look just like a ransom note, using letters cut out of news papers and magazines!
I believe that we have discovered the key to solving California’s budget problems. We just need to charge people to leave the state. A big ‘ol toll booth on the eastern terminus of Highway 50 At the Y in South Lake Tahoe. Why not a Floriston Wall on Interstate 80, similar to the one we lost in Berlin?
We can charge for visitors too! Get ’em coming and going!
While we’re at it, let’s get rid of those pesky Red Light Cameras. Let’s just charge implement a Red Light Tax Fee. Everyone pays! Those things cost money to run, you know.
What about those that don’t use cars? That’s a lot of potential revenue that we’re leaving on the table. Very well, time to initiate the Cross Walk Toll. That will be used in conjunction with the Just Standing There Toll.
I don’t know why our State Budget was so late, when the streets here are paved with gold.
Overheard above the din of fresh Nikes squeaking on the White House Court:
“As I have always said, that was a foul.”
“Make no mistake, I will make both of these free throws.”
“We never suggested that both free throws were a requirement to win this game.”
“Some have suggested that I called ‘glass’. Let me be clear, if I did indeed make my shot by banking it off the backboard, then I did call ‘glass’. However, if I missed the shot, then it was because we inherited these bent rims from the previous administration’s policy of using them at Guantanamo Bay. Our allies around the world have lost respect for us because of this policy, and it has fomented new round-ball challengers in the Arabian Peninsula.”
