I think no. Just the St. Patrick's Day Parade. Donohue can go stand on a rock, though, for saying Bloomberg is a better Catholic than Ferrer.

He plays poker and an aggressive game of tennis.

Scalia and his wife regularly play cards with fellow Supreme Court Justice and good friend, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her husband. He used to play tennis with late Chief Justice William Rehnquist.

My Dominican friends from Bronx told me that they and their parents and sister next door are all supporting Bloomberg. That's five votes right there. Ferrer has never been popular among the Dominicans, going back to when he was borough president.

BTW: Was there ever a parade along Bloomfield Avenue?

Too bad about these rivalries. Not that I want Ferrer to win.

He showed up at the Apollo debate glued to the hip with Sharpton and followed by what looked like Sharpton's entourage. Trying to cement that ethnic alliance. I wonder if that will work.

There were also Fulani's signs all over Harlem: Vote Bloomberg on Line C.

Why of course. Who was the guy with the tank in his back yard in Roseville? He lived right near my piano teacher but I don't think I actually ever saw the tank. The guy who said the blacks could move to north Newark but the question was how they were going to get out. Anthony Imperiale. Rode up Bloomfield Avenue on a (big) white horse in a Columbus Day parade. My racist coccoon. I wore a Gibson button on the 27 bus and people almost had a stroke.

My grandparents had the opportunity to meet Mr. Imperiale. Said he wasn't the brightest briquet on the fire. His debates with Leroi Jones must have been a riot.

Anthony Imperiale.

he was something else. when in office he had some law passed or took advantage of an existing one that enabled a certain few to carry a gun, he was among the few..
