CityRag smoke-ins are all about taunting NYC’s policy of aggresively hunting down and arresting people with incredibly small amounts of marijuana. and in doing this we often flirt with disaster. but this was a close one. just after we snapped this shot we noticed a cop 10 feet south of us watching traffic.

Bush-o-nomics

Bush-o-nomics
every day we stumble on another great voice in blogland. this post by AngryBlackBitch kicks ass and takes names….

Bush-o-nomics

1. Make the tax cuts permanent even though they have not stimulated the economy or created jobs.

2. Overhaul Social Security by creating private accounts which will invest directly in the Stock Market, which is about as stable as a crack ho’ jonesing for a fix.

3. Continue to fuck with Medicare, make it so complex that the old people will fall out dead from the stress thus reducing the dependent population.

…more Bush-o-nomics

I want my surplus back. I want Bill Clinton back. It feels like the inmates have taken over the asylum. And once they are done overhauling us into an “ownership society”, they’ll have created a society no one will want to own.

amen. we’re feelin’ you ABB.

New York City’s dog friendly hotels

New York City’s dog friendly hotels
the New York Times has a cool article today on hotels in NYC that will let you bring your pets, and even offer special services like pet pampering programs and dog walking!…

Blankies

We’ll Leave the Lights On, and a Milkbone
“Guests at the SoHo and TriBeCa Grand hotels are offered Pampered Pooches and Finicky Felines programs, providing special food, grooming and bedding.”
Loews has a special doorknob sign to alert housekeepers that there is a pet in the room. In addition, the chain asks for a cellphone number or provides guests with a “puppy pager” so that the hotel can contact them if there is a problem with a pet.”
“…at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Central Park South, the loan of a Burberry raincoat if it happens to be raining when the need for a walk arises.”
“The W Hotel at Union Square not only welcomes pets arriving with two-legged guests, but occasionally celebrates its connection with the animal world”

and we’ve found other great NY hotels allow dogs too!

more info on traveling to New York with your dog:
New York is a great place to bring your dog on vacation with you. most cabs will let dogs ride in the back (carry a towel for the seat if your dog cannot ride in your lap.) there are tons of dog runs and wonderful parks throughout the city to tour with your pup (you could spend 2 days just hitting Central Park and the west river!). some great shopping. and many outdoor cafes allow your dog to sit quietly by your side while you dine.
