In other news, I recently went to the bathroom and washed my hands. Coming up next: where I went on vacation.

In New Jersey folks only call the state Jersey. In New York, they do not call the place York. Why this diference?

Grape Nuts! You open it up, no grapes, no nuts! What is the deal?

Maybe you fail to see the point. Giuliani is constantly boasting how great NYC is, but his son will not go to school there. It's a bit of a contradiction. There are some great schools in NYC. Our Secretary of State is a product of that school system. Considering those facts, would you send your kid out of town?

I don't think that this is about the quality of schools in NJ versus NY, I think Rudy just wants the house to himself if you know what I mean... nudge nudge wink wink...

I don't ever recall Giuliani ever going out of his way to praise the NYC educational system, beyond the insincere platitudes any mayor has to spout as part of his job in order to keep the Board of Ed bureaucrats and teachers' unions off his ass. Which makes perfect sense, because New York City schools are largely a disaster. Yes, there are a few excellent public schools in NYC, but those are the ones that you have to apply to, and there's no guarantee you're going to get accepted. Maybe Andrew didn't pass the test. Maybe he's just not interested; why go to Bronx Science if you want to be a football player?

And how about those Big Gulps? Could we possibly need that much Mountain Dew?

Or perhaps there is a feeling that young Andrew (brilliantly parodied by the late Chris Farley on SNL, if I recall correctly) will be safer at this out-of-town school. When my uncle was something of a bigshot in a local public school system, he had to move out of the city so that his kids could go to school in another district for their own wellbeing.

Sneeze guards on salad bars - what's the deal with that? Were that many people really sneezing on the salad?

I see the point. Quality of schools may have nothing to do with it. He's going through a nasty divorce and wants the kid separated from it. Wise choice. Of course, when he comes for a visit there are many fine hotels in the area where his new "friend" Judy can "rest". Maybe that's not a bad thing either.

Just saw the remarks about the "sneeze guards" on salads. It's worse than that. One idiot was using a turkey baster to squirt urine on the salads. Sorry to ruin your day, but it's true. They caught the guy, but I haven't been to a salad bar since.

whoa! great thread idea!
I heard that guy's wife was doing the same thing, placing chick peas at salad bars around the city...

OK, I promise I'll go mow the lawn now and put down the iBook.

This could be the reason why Giuliani is pissed at the NYC schools right now. Not a big surprise.

He's going through a nasty divorce and wants the kid separated from it

at a time when the kid needs to be reassured that both parents still love him, he's being sent away. "No, son, it's not your fault that mummy and daddy don't love each other any more. We just don't want you around."

ok, so maybe he's a little too old to be doing the 'they're divorcing and it's my fault' thing.

Don't jump to conclusions. For all you know, Donna Hanover, or Rudy is moving to the northwest 'burbs of NYC (but probably not Paramus--not affluent enough : (

By the way, what I find most amazing is that I haven't seen a picture--any picture--of that kid since Rudy first took office and he was mocked on SNL. That's pretty impressive.

I would like to end by emphasizing once again that I really like to eat hot dogs. If any of you people disagree, I loathe you. I despise you. Not only that, but I also despise all your loved ones. I want to see them torn to pieces by wild dogs. If I ever meet you in person, I'll smash your brains in with a fucking bat. Then we'll see who doesn't like hot dogs.
