    TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – With a 1929 Model A Ford Phaeton making the final 3.1-mile (4.99-kilometer) journey across the Hudson River, the Tappan Zee Bridge in New York City's northern suburbs has officially closed. Much of the fanfare that accompanied the opening of an adjacent $3.9 billion twin-span named in honor of former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo in August was missing Friday night when the Tappan Zee saw its final crossing, according to The Journal News . Seth Kestenbaum was the last driver to cross the 61-year-old bridge around 10 p.m. in the vintage Ford. "If you're first across the...

    Convicted leftist terrorist Susan Rosenberg must be counted among the unlikeliest candidates ever to be awarded a university teaching post. Just four years ago, Rosenberg was serving out the 16th year of a 58-year sentence for the possession of more than 700 pounds of explosives and a stockpile of illicit weapons. Moreover, the onetime member of a leftist terrorist outfit called “The Family” was also a suspect in a 1981 robbery-gone-awry that left three people dead in Nyack, New York. However, next January students at Hamilton College, a small liberal arts school in upstate New York, will know Susan Rosenberg,...

    They picket Hamilton College fund-raiser over employment of Susan Rosenberg. About 30 Rockland County police officers and friends picketed a Hamilton College fund-raiser in Manhattan Friday night to protest the college's hiring of a former radical once indicted in the murder of two police officers. Members of the Rockland County Patrolmen's Benevolent Association want the college to rescind the hiring of Susan Rosenberg. She served 16 years in prison for possessing more than 600 pounds of explosives, and was indicted in a Brink's armored car robbery in 1981. Two Nyack police officers - both members of the Rockland County PBA...

    A bloody robbery attempt brings a roundup of '60s fugitives The armored Brink's truck pulled up to the Nanuet National Bank near suburban Nyack, N. Y., shortly before 4 p.m. and two guards began loading $1.6 million in cash. Suddenly three armed men in ski masks jumped out of a red van and opened fire. One guard was killed instantly and the other critically wounded. The three bandits and an accomplice dashed off with the loot. "They didn't even ask them to hand over the money," declared an incredulous witness. "They just blasted away." The robbers changed conveyances at a...

    Jerrold Nadler's Two Faces on Terror By Jacob | June 13, 2005Last Friday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Patriot Act had already been adjourned, but Jerrold Nadler, the Democratic blimpish congressman from New York and one of the leftmost members of the House Judiciary Committee, was too wound up to care: “We are not besmirching the honor of the United States, we are trying to uphold it,” bellowed the hefty Nadler. By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact) privileged  prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...

    GAY POL: I'LL JOIN THE FIGHT March 4, 2004 -- A second New York mayor who had planned to marry gay couples now says he'll challenge state laws prohibiting same-sex unions instead. Nyack Mayor John Shields first said yesterday he would join New Paltz Mayor Jason West in presiding over gay weddings and would seek a license for himself to marry his same-sex partner. But after State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer declared that courts should decide the constitutionality of laws barring gay marriages, Shields changed his strategy, saying he "would rather be a plaintiff than a defendant." The mayor said...

    In 1970, Kathy Boudin belonged to a revolutionary cell that failed in an attempt to commit mass murder at an army dance at Fort Dix. A decade later, she participated in a robbery that killed 3 people and left 9 children fatherless. Last week, two brain dead black parole board members released her from prison because she said she did it for them. On August 20, 2003, two New York parole board commissioners Vernon C. Manley and Daizzee D. Booey -- both African American -- paroled convicted terrorist Kathy Boudin, who was serving twenty years to life for felony murder...
