In real estate. I’m not an expert on this but I’ve seen the sausage being made a few times. Individuals with investment money, commercial businesses that might use new space, other possible tenants, maybe or maybe not some designers or builders, municipal or other government stakeholders, community stakeholders such as neighborhood associations, etc. consider a…

Everyone knows that you never say the name “Voldemort” because it gives him power. Like this: And perhaps for this reason, many non-deplorables wish to avoid using the name of Trump. I can understand their position, and I respect their point of view. Having said that, they are totally wrong, of course. Trump isn’t just…

And, can we hear the tapes please, before they get Wooded?

Donald Trump on Sesame Street

As I’ve pointed out before, New Yorkers have been dealing with Donald Trump for a very long time. Chris Hayes, on All In, came up with some great examples, the last one of which is … well, just watch:

The Original Donald Trump
