Senate coronavirus bill includes $75M for Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which funds NPR, 'Big Bird'


The Senate emergency stimulus compromise package allocates $75 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), the nonprofit that funds National Public Radio (NPR), offers programming featuring the children's character "Big Bird" and supports other public stations.

The massive payout -- which the draft bill says would "make fiscal stabilization grants to public television and radio stations facing declines in non-federal revenues" -- is less than the $300 million that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., had proposed in her own coronavirus stimulus proposal. The money nevertheless drew complaints from conservatives, who called the spending unrelated to the coronavirus, and who have long accused NPR of overt political bias.

President Trump has repeatedly called for Congress to cut all funding for CPB in his budget requests. On Tuesday, a Washington state NPR station said it would stop airing Trump's coronavirus briefings because they could not be fact-checked "in real-time."

A small stretch of four streets will temporarily close to vehicular traffic in another idiotic program as the city tests out an idea for providing more 'social distancing' space during the coronavirus pandemic. ho came up with that stupid fuckin' phrase, anyway? 

Oh, that's right - 'Stay the fuck away from me asshole' was taken.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has picked one street to be converted to pedestrian-only corridors in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, for a pilot running from Friday, March 27, to Monday, March 30.

Each of the following streets will be closed to cars from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. for the four-day test.

The closures in total make up roughly 1.6 miles of the city’s 6,000 miles of roads:

Manhattan: Park Avenue, between 28th Street and 34th Street
Brooklyn: Bushwick Avenue, between Johnson Avenue and Flushing Avenue
Queens: 34th Avenue, 73rd Street to 80th Street
The Bronx: Grand Concourse, between East Burnside Avenue and 184th Street

BRILLIANT IDEA BILL.

The woman visited a Hanover Township location of the small grocery chain Gerrity’s Supermarket before 2:20 p.m. Wednesday and coughed on fresh produce, a small section of the bakery, meat case and grocery items, the store’s co-owner Joe Fasula wrote.

Authorities do not believe the woman, whose name is still unknown, is infected with COVID-19, but will “make every effort” to get her tested, Fasula wrote. The woman is also said to be a “chronic problem” in the community.

When billionaire Bill Ackman went on television last week to tearfully warn that “hell is coming” and beg the White House to shut down the country for 30 days, he was knee deep in a bet against the markets that netted him $2.6 billion.

In a Wednesday note to investors of his Pershing Square fund, Ackman said he cashed out of a credit hedge on Monday for a profit of $2.6 billion. The hedge, which he started building on March 3, cost him roughly $27 million and scored big as stock and debt markets floundered on fears of the coming pandemic — fears, critics say, that he helped stoke.

Eh Rock - wuddya got dere?


In "Rocky" 1976 Rocky  introduced his turtles to Adrian as "the exotic animals I was telling you about", forgetting that he bought them at her pet shop. 

Apparently, Stallone kept the turtles, named them "Cuff" and"Link" and has had them ever since. The turtles are now 45 years old, and will most likely outlive him, you and me.

Do you snore - or worse - 
does someone next to you in bed snore? 

I swear I rarely snore. Just don't know - never wakes me up, but my ever-so light sleeping wife unit wakes up if a fly farts in the other room.

I been taking one of these every night before I go to bed. Damned if they don't work - old eagle ears tells me I'm not snoring any more. She ain't breakin' balls about this any more, and I ain't gettin' that oh-so-delightful elbow in the fuckin' ribs at 3 in the morning anymore.



It really does work. I would NOT bullshit you on this.

Dozens of elephants 'set free' as chairs used to carry tourists are scrapped in wake of COVID-19 downturn 


Dozens of elephants were set free this morning (March 25) as their owners scrapped the heavy wooden chairs that are tied to their backs for carrying tourists.

The jumbos at the Maesa elephant camp in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, have been giving rides to holidaymakers for 44 years but the Covid-19 coronavirus has decimated tourism.


With no end to the pandemic in sight and a ban on such businesses opening, owners have decided to scrap the huge wooden and metal carriages that are strapped to the elephants' backs throughout the day.

Camp director Anchalee Kalampichit said this was the first time in 44 years that the elephants had not worn the seats at the start of the day.

She said the company will now change their business to allow the elephants to roam freely in the grounds and operate as a place for visitors to observe the animals - and all 78 of the jumbos will never have to wear them again.

  1. I’m from Cincinnati where opening day is almost a high holy holiday every year. We take this tradition thing seriously.
    This year, no parade, no game, no fun.
    But you can open a beer at home and throw $7 in the trash.
