Hicksville 'Cool downtown' plan in the works

Thomas, another thing that really pisses me off are the morons at the Hicksville Train station who go out of their way to feed the local pigeon population, which is why there are so many pigeons there bombarding the place with their droppings. I have gotten into arguments with a couple of these idiots on the platform. They just stare back with this uncomprehending gaze, apparently unable to fathom that they are responsible for the pigeon droppings.  (Jun 12, 2009 | post #75)

Hicksville 'Cool downtown' plan in the works

And what's wrong with that? If you are going to have immigrants in your town, they're just about the best you can hope for. They have their own businesses, many of them are educated and professionals. You rarely read about Indian kids committing crimes or violence. I for one am glad we have them here.  (Jun 12, 2009 | post #74)

Hicksville 'Cool downtown' plan in the works

I am from Hicksville and still commute to work in NYC from the train station. I agree with your friend, Main Street in Huntington is a good model for what a vibrant suburban downtown can be. I think Hicksville has potential, if it's done right.  (May 29, 2009 | post #11)

Sorry to say, but the American suburban lifestyle helped fund the oil wealth of the Saudis.  (Mar 1, 2009 | post #5)

LI forecast to get up to 14 inches of snow

I agree. I stocked up an emergency food pantry months ago in the event of a bad winter storm. Anyone who doesn't have at least a week's worth of food stored up ahead of time is really short sighted. You prepare for disaster when times are good, not when "Oh shoot, the storm's coming tonight!"  (Mar 1, 2009 | post #52)

'The Shield': One of TV history's great finales

That was my first inclination. However, I think he is going out there to get a piece of the action. Think about it. Just a moment earlier, he ran to the window when he heard the police cars driving by with lights and sirens. Vic's fate was largely what I thought it would be, he is a free man but he has lost everything. But at heart he is a survivor. I was disappointed that the episode ended without the body of Lloyd's mom being found. From what I read, they wanted to end the series with some things not entirely resolved, because the cops at the Barn will be back at work again the next day. Their lives go on, even if we don't see it. After ignoring Julien's struggles with his homosexuality in the last 3 or 4 seasons, I noted the subtle nod they made when Julien is watching the gay couple on the sidewalk while Tina Hanlon is driving the squad car.  (Nov 25, 2008 | post #25)

Citing Jewish law, NY family fights hospital over request...

I would tell him Anthony, but he's dead and he never came back to life. He didn't do anything for my "salvation ".  (Nov 8, 2008 | post #8)

Oh, poor persecuted Christians! Saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas". You want to see real persecution against Christians? Look at Iraq, where we have an army of some 140,000 soldiers, and yet about a third of all Iraqi Christians have fled the country because they are no longer safe there. But we never hear a peep out of you people about that.  (Oct 26, 2008 | post #4)

Kenya deporting US author of anti-Obama book

Which I oppose, but you seem to be misunderstanding how it is being applied in Britain. It only applies to religious matters between Muslims in Britain. It does not impose sharia law on non-Muslim British citizens. It is analogous to certain issues between religious Jews being settled in rabbinical courts, like divorce, property disputes and so forth.  (Oct 21, 2008 | post #66)

Bank robberies on LI, U.S. due to tough economy?

It seems to me like it is way too easy to rob a bank. All the bum has to do is hand a note to a teller and he gets the money. I suppose it is bank policy. But maybe if they made it more difficult to rob banks, the number of robberies would decrease.  (Oct 8, 2008 | post #4)

Kenya deporting US author of anti-Obama book

You're the simpleton with poor reading skills. I was responding to the commenter directly above me who finished his comments with this: "It is time for Obama to stop lying to his teeth and tell the truth about the true Barack Hussein Obama, the Kenyan Muslim who desire to become Islamic leader of the world for the spread of Islam to America." Your apology will be graciously accepted.  (Oct 7, 2008 | post #23)

Half-ton Mexican man dies after pleading for help

I hate to say it, but his death was inevitable. When you weigh that much, the body just cannot endure it. Even if the hospital had stabilized him, he was bound to end up in the same situation again. I remember that case here on Long Island years ago, I think his name was Walter Hudson. He went on **** Gregory's Bahamian diet and lost a few hundred ponds for a while, but then he gained it all back and died in bed. Very sad.  (Oct 7, 2008 | post #2)

Funeral for NYPD `stun gun' officer

It's a tragedy all around. The officer made a decision that was a bad call and he obviously regretted it. To the first commenter, you are only judging this officer from this one incident, whereas his family and colleagues knew him far better than you. Police officers are flawed human beings like the rest of us. One day an officer can put his life on the line to save the life of a fellow officer or civilian, and on another day he makes an error in judgment that costs a life. Sadly, that is the nature of the business.  (Oct 7, 2008 | post #12)
