Alyson: I respect your right to vote for who you want. But this is about DONALD TRUMP, not about your hurt feelings re: Bernie, or distaste for the DNC. Trump is a DANGER TO DEMOCRACY and you need to put your personal feelings aside. DO NOT throw away your vote, or you vote for Trump. That is a fact that you cannot rationalize away. Please, suck it up for this election, so we may still have a country for you to bitch about. PLEASE.

I’ve seen your rhetoric on how you don’t want to vote for the Democratic nominee for president if it’s not Bernie Sanders. I respect and appreciate where you are coming from as a full supporter of Medicare-For-All, reducing college debt, making the rich pay their fair share in taxes and most of the other ideas that Senator Sanders espouses. It would be nice to be able to have all of that right away, but sometimes change doesn’t happen as quick as we’d like.

However, as a member of the LGBTQ community (albeit in a Blue state,) I still feel the weight of discriminatory measures and hateful rhetoric that Trump has hurled at our community, and I can only imagine how much worse its become for non-whites and non-males in this Trump-toxic environment. Hate crimes and LGBTQ suicide rates are at all-time highs and discriminatory policies are being shoved down the throats of Americans more frequently than ever before. So many people are hurting right now and we don’t have the luxury of “waiting out” Trump and hoping for a “revolution” in 2024/5. Not to mention that Global Warming/Climate Change needs to be addressed yesterday and isn’t going to get any better by the end of a second Trump administration.

Taken from the FB page of a Transgender friend of mine on 3/11/20; please read and think about her points when encouraging people to not #VoteBlueNoMatterWho in November:

“Bernie did not have a good night last night. Whether he drops out or not remains to be seen, but I’m seeing reality setting in amongst a lot of Bernie voters, and, as a very disappointed Warren supporter, let me extend my sympathy

and empathy – without any kind of vermin emoji – because I know it sucks. It really does. Neither of these two candidates were in my top 5 – one wasn’t even in my top 15.

But, holy shit, is it wild to see these people who stressed the importance of voting for the progressive when other candidates dropped out suddenly declare that they are just going to stay home on election day because Bernie didn’t

get the nomination. Fucking. Wild.

As a trans woman living under this regime, which is very specifically and directly targeting my community’s ability to exist in public, and participate in civic life, this is an incredibly privileged position to see. More people like

me will die under 4 more years of Trump than will do so under 4 years of any non-GOP administration. Even the benign (well, indifferent) neglect of democratic administrations past is far preferable to this.

And that’s just the trans community. Parallel efforts are also underway targeting the rights of LGBQP folks to exist in public and live and love without discrimination, too.

The misogyny is endemic everywhere, but obviously worse under He-Who-Grabs-The-Pussy.

And this is all from my position as a white woman. This doesn’t even begin to address the violence perpetrated against communities of color every single day this actively white supremacist administration holds power over black and

brown people. Every human right they can strip, they are trying – with all-too-frequent success – to strip. No matter the implicit bias and racism amongst all white people, you can’t really believe the lives of your black, brown and

Asian friends are just the same under a Trump administration as under any Democrat administration?

And, of course, voting is more than just about the president. It’s about voting in progressive and leftward local council members, school board members, state legislators, Congress members, governors, etc. The right put in decades of

work to take control over as much local and state-level power as possible to set up the ability to exercise minority rule as they have for the past two decades. The fact that the left refuses to put that work in instead of just taking

their ball and going home at the first or second setback is why the gop and Nazi right know that they just have to wait us out.

If nothing else, electing Trump guarantees a 7-2 conservative Supreme Court majority, which means that it doesn’t matter who we elect because no progressive policy will survive a Supreme Court challenge for two generations.

A vote for anyone other than the eventual Democratic nominee is a vote for Trump. Period. It sucks and it’s really shitty that this is the system we have to work in, but this is the system we have to work in until we can get in a

position to change it. Sitting at home on election day is co-signing this system’s validity – you can’t change anything from there.

I’m sure this sounds really shaming, and it definitely is a little, but it’s also true. This country is at an inflection point. It is impossible to overstate the danger of Trump.

If all of those voters this meme imagines are just waiting to vote for Bernie actually showed up in the Democratic primary, he’d win. The fact that they won’t show up in the practice round does not bode well for their commitment in

November. Bernie doesn’t generate turnout. Biden, for whatever godforsaken reason, does. He’s not my choice, but here we fucking are. I’ll vote for Bernie as he misses the Illinois primary, because my candidate already dropped out and

showing support for his policy with a strong second place finish will help move the party platform leftward, and come November, I will show the fuck up, hold my goddamn nose and vote for Biden. Because lives are on the line. Mine and

those of people who are not like me.

That’s what really kills me. I kept seeing meme after meme attacking Warren supporters for not immediately supporting Bernie that said variations on “Bernie voters actually want to help people who are not like them” which is a cool

sentiment until they show their true colors by declaring that they’ll just stay home when he loses instead of actually casting a vote in November that reduces the most harm, even if it’s an incremental improvement (which is the only

actual way change happens).

Do as you please with your vote. It’s your right as a citizen. But a declaration that if you can’t vote for Bernie, you just won’t vote, only says that you recognize that no matter the danger that another Trump term represents, you

know you’re not the one in actual danger and therefore, you’re just kind of fine with that."

To whom it may concern,

I hope this email finds you well! My name is Amanda Morris, and I’m an NYU Journalism student who is doing a video journalism story on biking in the city, what that’s like, and how safe or unsafe it is to bike in New York. I was wondering if I could arrange a time to meet some members of your organization and do interviews on camera for my advanced reporting class. I would also like to film some BROLL for this piece.

I think this is a topic that is grossly under reported and could benefit from more attention in the media, especially given what happened last week.

If possible, I’d love to film an interview before next week. I’m available on Wednesday afternoon or Friday afternoon. I’m also available on Saturday throughout the day.

I plan to attend the biker’s day of remembrance on the 19th.

Please let me know if there would be someone from the organization who can talk to me. Also, if there is anyone that I should reach out to for this project, please let me know and put me in touch with them, thank you!!

Again, please respond as soon as you can to let me know if you’re willing to do an interview and what time/day would be most convenient for you.

I hope you have a great day! Thanks again!

All my best,

Amanda Morris

I saw a post on FB proposing a comprehensive snow-removal policy, and I agree. The post also reminded me of the problem of garbage in the streets and particularly on the sidewalks. In Forest Hills, a string of restaurants and businesses on Queens Blvd. leave the sidewalks splattered and smeared with food and liquids, hundreds of cigarette butts, papers, wrappers, bottles, you name it. I’ve written to the businesses, called 311 and written to Karen Koslowitz, but nothing has changed. A staff person at CB9 told me business owners are only responsible for cleaning in front of their store in time for their customers. It’s crazy, and disgusting.

Hi Guys,

I love you guys and what you do, thanks so much for the work, the news and the updates. And most of all, the advocacy!

I am curious about a statement Eric made in the latest newsletter: why is a LaGuardia Airport Air Train “a questionable mega-project”? I only fly a

couple of times a year, but part of what makes it so stressful is getting

to and from the airports in this city – it’s abominable, we truly need

express, easy, affordable train access directly to the airports. Could you

open my mind as to why NYC DOT’s plans for an air train to LaGuardia might not be so great?

Thank you!

Hello ALL Council members. I am: Vivian and I am contacting ALL of you to file a criminal report about a school called: Per Scholas Institute for Technology. I am asking ALL of you Council members to please do an investigation of the school called: Per Scholas Institute for Technology’s financial dealings. You see Per Scholas Institute for Technology is a non-profit business that teaches poor and disadvantage people the skills of computers in the Information Technology (IT). Per Scholas does this in order to prepare students to pass the CompTIA A+ Certificate and the CompTIA Network+ Certificate.
Per Scholas Institute for Technology receive money through donations but Per Scholas is not using the money that Per Scholas receives through donations to make sure that us students receive what is needed to effectively learn Information Technology (IT) and retain the knowledge of Information Technology (IT). I were a student of Per Scholas starting in the early part of July 2014 but then I were WRONGFULLY removed from Per Scholas on September 4, 2014 by a Per Scholas staff named: Elias Naser. I were WRONGFULLY removed from Per Scholas because I refuse to go through the frustration caused by Per Scholas’ incompetence and unorganized business practices.
Per Scholas Institute for Technology’s incompetence and unorganized business practices is why I were WRONGFULLY removed from Per Scholas. You can read below the three Per Scholas’ incompetence and unorganized business practices that got me WRONGFULLY removed from Per Scholas after I refuse to tolerate Per Scholas’ incompetence and unorganized business practices and after I reported these upcoming three Per Scholas’ incompetence and unorganized business practices to Per Scholas.

(1) Per Scholas Institute for Technology has a website that we students used so that we students can do our tests, homeworks and more for class in which that Per Scholas website link is here: That Per Scholas’ website has a lot of bugs, errors and glitches that has been an ongoing chronically problems. Per Scholas has been stealing the donation money that is suppose to be going to fix all the problems with their: website. Now after multiple problems with that Per Scholas website I stop doing my homeworks which at that time Per Scholas were already told about the problems with their website by me. Per Scholas also already knew about the problems with their Per Scholas website even before I and the other students started the class in the early part of July 2014.

(2) Per Scholas Institute for Technology’s program runs at this time for 13 weeks (3 months and 1 week). The way that Per Scholas has their program setup makes is very hard to impossible to retain or remember the computer Information Technology (IT) knowledge for even 6 months or less. Per Scholas is not using the donated money to have a proper teaching method so that we students can do great in the Information Technology (IT) field. The FOURTH EDITION book by Mike Meyers called: Managing and Troubleshooting PCs that Per Scholas give us also have various typos and misleading information in it. Once again Per Scholas is not using the donated money to have a proper teaching method so that we students can do great in the Information Technology (IT) field.

(3) Per Scholas Institute for Technology have computers for us students to work on which Per Scholas called: the break and fix computers that we student use for hands on practice. Those break and fix computers are garbage. Per Scholas receives over $7,000 in donation for each student. Every three years or so Per Scholas could buy a more modern computer for very cheap which would be less than $600.00 by building new computers when Per Scholas buy computer parts in order to build new break and fix computers. Per Scholas is not using the money that Per Scholas received from donations to make sure that we students have working break and fix computers. Per Scholas Institute for Technology are engaged in fraud due to the stealing of the money that is donated to Per Scholas for us students to be taught properly. Per Scholas’ main website is here:
That is why I am asking ALL of you Council members to please do an investigation into Per Scholas Institute for Technology financial dealings because Per Scholas has been stealing the donated money for months and years now. I am requesting this report for the investigation into Per Scholas’ financial dealings to make sure that future students do not have those problems that me, the other students in my class, the other students in the other classes are having now and had. Those three problems happened to ALL of us students in the classes that I were in and were not in. Those problems happened to ALL the students of Per Scholas in one way or another. The Per Scholas’ staffs are liars so be careful. If the putting Per Scholas out of business is needed then please put Per Scholas out of business. If instead bring Per Scholas up on criminal charges and/or arresting Per Scholas staffs are needed then please bring Per Scholas up on criminal charges and/or please arrest the Per Scholas staffs. Please help us students at Per Scholas and thank you in advance.

Mr Puttle’s Pedestrian Theorem: improving traffic flow and pedestrian safety

by K.O. Kleppert

The constant movement of both traffic and pedestrians is an on-going conflict in New York City, especially with regards to “cross-town” traffic. Intersections are a blockage of metal and flesh vying for supremacy, each hoping the other will yield. To help improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety, I offer a simple adjustment to the pedestrian pattern at each cross walk of intersecting streets and avenues.

Take for example, 22nd Street and Eighth Avenue. Twenty Second Street’s traffic flow is one way East bound across Manhattan. Eighth Avenue’s traffic flow is one way North bound. At the intersection, pedestrians would ONLY be allowed to cross Eighth Avenue on the South side of the “box”. This would allow the East bound traffic, especially those who want to turn left onto Eighth Avenue, unrestricted movement to do so, thereby allowing more traffic to pass both through the intersection and onto Eighth Avenue.

Currently, turning traffic must wait for an opening between trans versing pedestrians to safely pass by and move north. Waiting for their opportunity do so often causes following traffic to remain standing due their inability to continue. Horn honking is often a result of this situation.

Conversely, at the intersection of 22nd Street and Ninth Avenue, (which is one way South), pedestrians would ONLY be allowed to cross on the North side of the intersection, thereby allow turning vehicles unrestricted access to Ninth Avenue.

To assist the pedestrian flow crossing the Avenues, I propose the cross walk pathway be doubled in width to accommodate the additional pedestrians waiting to move.

This system would work best at the intersection of two one way streets as described above, but could also be applied to intersections of a two way street and one way avenue, such as 23rd Street and Eighth Avenue. Pedestrian traffic would need to cross Eighth Avenue on the south side of the intersection.

Inevitably there would be some resistance to this new procedure and the learning curve required for those on foot, but ultimately it would improve traffic flow and public safety simultaneously.

As a former pedestrian resident and current vehicular visitor, I have intimate knowledge of the urban transportation modalities of the city and wish only to make this unique environment more enjoyable for all.

Accompanying this theorem is a diagram depicting the patterns of both vehicles and pedestrians.
