As much as you may absolutely loathe the Metro Transportation Authority -- and, in many cases, for good reason -- credit must be given where credit is due; the public transit agency did a bang-up job getting the City moving again after the devastation of last month's Hurricane Sandy.
Authorities won't say much about the case, but it appears to be based on little more than Hernandez's confession to police, and the testimony of family and clergy members who say Hernandez confessed to them, too.
As far as physical evidence goes, however, there doesn't appear to be much -- if any.
Governor Andrew Cuomo fell short of blaming the hurricane on Global Warming during a press conference Wednesday, but he noted that New York needs to come up with a better way to prepare for "a 100-year flood every two years."
Global Warming is a touchy subject -- many look at it as a serious problem that could potentially lead to the destruction of the planet. Others see it as a left-wing conspiracy dreamed up by Gore -- et al -- to scare the shit out of people.
Friends of the Staten Island teen tell multiple media outlets that the bullying by members of the football team was brutal -- online, at school, and at the train station just before she decided to take her own life; the bullies apparently were relentless.
An anti-abortion group recently commissioned a survey of New York City parents to find out whether they approved of the Department of Education's policy of dishing out Morning After pills ("Plan B") to students as young as 14 years old.
The pill, as you probably know, can prevent a pregnancy as long as it's taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex.
Surprise, surprise, the survey commissioned by the anti-abortion folks found that more than 50-percent of parents disapprove of the DOE's policy.
If you went to the Jay-Z concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last month, getting into the arena probably felt like you were getting on an airplane -- concertgoers were put through airport-style metal detectors.
However, if you caught Barbara Streisand at the same venue last week, the same security measures were not in place -- security officers used a much less intrusive metal-detecting wand to check concertgoers for weapons.
The two different policies for two different performers -- who have two very, very (very) different fan bases -- caused a bit of a stir; charges of racism were made against the arena for putting rap fans through the wringer, while Streisand fans were only checked with a wand.
The dead suspect has been identified as 33-year-old Jodon Romero, a multiple felon who led police on an hour-long chase after at firing at cops following the car-jacking.
The fact that Romero killed himself -- and Fox aired the suicide on live TV -- is unfortunate. The fact that Romero's kids watched the footage is what makes it tragic.
Our sources in Phoenix, Arizona, confirm to the Voice what's been reported in local media outlets: Romero's kids watched their father shoot himself in the head. They didn't watch it live, but they found the footage on the Internet.
The entire debate is a bit of an enigma/completely contradictory -- it seems many of the people who detest the ads and want them taken down are the same people advocating for the free speech rights of those vandalizing the ads.
