  • Behind the Sesame Street evictions July 30, 2016
    Generations of “Sesame Street” fans are irked that the Children’s Television Workshop is retiring Bob, Luis and Gordon. You’d think City Hall had just sited a methodone clinic on the block. Bob McGrath, 84, has been with the show since 1969. He’s been mainly waving from the background for several seasons now. And Luis the...
  • Why didn’t the Democrats even mention the Clinton Foundation? July 30, 2016
    In all the Democratic convention speeches seeking to “humanize” Hillary Clinton, something went curiously missing: her work with the family charity. You’d think Hillary, Bill and Chelsea would want to use the national stage to tout how their family’s $2 billion foundation is “helping improve the lives of millions of people across the world,” as...
  • As the US economy slows even more, Hillary has no answers July 30, 2016
    Just hours after Hillary Clinton promised to give the nation more Obamanomics if she wins the White House, the Commerce Department reported that the US economy grew at just a 1.2 percent pace in the year’s second quarter, about half the rate most economists had expected.

    He is The Last Manning Standing, his Big Brother retired and now a pitchman/fan, his head coach for the first 12 years of his career no longer on the sidelines, and Eli Manning enters a brave new world hungering to get the Giants back to the playoffs for the first time since Super Bowl XLVI...
  • Sexism’s secret gift to Hillary Clinton July 30, 2016
    Marissa Mayer — the CEO of Yahoo, which was just bought for $4.8 billion by Verizon — recently expressed her frustration with how the media consistently covers her as a woman CEO, rather than just a CEO of a major tech company. During her four-year tenure at the helm of Yahoo, she became known for...
  • Cops release sketch of creep who lured girl into his car July 30, 2016
    Police released a sketch of a suspect who allegedly lured a 10-year-old girl into his car in Richmond Hill, according to authorities.

  • What the Democratic Convention failed to do July 30, 2016
    It was a variant on a traditional convention for a party seeking a third straight term in the White House, attempting to overcome an apparent post-convention bounce for the opposition: shades of 1988, 2000 or 2008. Usually it starts with a valedictory by the incumbent president, followed by celebration of the new nominee and ending...
  • Turnstile jumper busted with loaded gun July 29, 2016
    Game, set, match for this farebeater.
