Saturday Night with Wynonie Harris and Bull Moose Jackson

I discovered them in high school in the 1950s. Hope it doesn’t offend. I think the Bull Moose Jackson tune was banned when it first came out.

Reading List: Bloomberg Embarrassed by Concrete Testing Investigation, Promises City Funding that Doesn’t Exist

* An investigation into allegations of fabricated scores of concrete tests at construction sites including Yankee Stadium and One World Trade Center has been a source of embarrassment for the Bloomberg administration, reports The New York Times. This from the mayor who compares himself to Robert Moses.

* Bloomberg announced he wants to spend $50 million on the city’s community colleges, but has no clue where that money will actually come from, contends the Post editorial board.

* Tony Avella’s campaign wants to buy Bloomberg a one-way ticket to Alaska, writes Lost City. Why? Well, Brooks points out several reasons, including using stimulus money to bail out private developers.

* Here’s a picture of life under Bloomberg’s zero-tolerance regime. A child and her father get slapped with a $50 ticket for selling lemonade in Riverside Park for a recession-friendly price of 50 cents a glass.

* Mayoral Candidates slam the mayor for ignoring the needs of local communities and catering to real estate development.

* Queens Crap wants you to give this photo a caption:

Sunday Morning with The Platters

Well, I forgot to post some music on Saturday night. I’m still in Amsterdam, which is 6 hours ahead of New York, and the good times roll on Saturday night. So I guess that and the secondhand smoke that drifts out of the coffee shops make me forgetful. It’s Sunday morning here and before we go out and get some pankakken, the wonderful Dutch pancakes, here are a couple of oldies that I hope you like.
