The broadcast and online media outlets have all gone gooey-eyed over the way NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams announced his own daughter Allison’s casting in the plum role of Peter Pan in the network’s upcoming live action production –
No tears here.
I demand that the full investigative reporting resources at NBC News be hurled at this story, which reeks of nepotism, entitlement and…dare I say, piracy.
J.M. Barrie said it best:
“Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if
you your daddy will sacrifice everything else for it.”

You see a little bit of everything here in New York City. I’ve always chalked it up to our open-mindedness and the spirit of creativity that is so much a part of this, the greatest city in the world.
Turns out — it could be aliens.
Did you know that that the state of New York ranks #5 in the Top 10 states reporting UFO sightings? It’s true.
There’s a chart:
So, if you’re celebrating World UFO Day, NYC potentially has a lot to offer.

Did you know that ferrets have been banned in New York City for over 15 years?
Then Mayor Rudy Giuliani banned the critters. And Michael Bloomberg upheld his decision.
But now thanks to Ariel Jasper, a Brooklyn College student, that may all change. She petitioned the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene on Wednesday to consider an amendment to the Health Code. And since our current Mayor Bill de Blasio is an animal lover, most people think the ferret has a pretty good chance of returning to Manhattan households.
And, seriously, why not? Ferrets are legal pets in 48 states, including the remainder of New York.
So take that, Rudy.

Congratulations to Ray Romano!
He’s signed a deal to appear in the pilot of a new HBO drama that centers on the world of rock-and-roll in the sexy, druggie 1970s. Ray will play the right-hand man to a record executive (portrayed by Bobby Cannavale).
This is amazing news! I think someone deserves a new hat…
