Senator Lanza Keeps Staten Island Secession Alive
But Runnin' Scared -- having lived on Staten Island once upon a time, albeit briefly -- supports his proposal. We have observed the borough's sad real-estate schemes, anti-Russian fervor, terminal fish boondoggles, harboring of international fugitives, racist thugs, and wild bobcats, and agree that a separation would be best for both of us. Clearly the city is unloved by Staten Island, and now that we no longer dump our garbage there, the mystic chords of memory no longer bind us. Lanza may count on our support. We only ask that he take Williamsburg with him.
