Leading Off (10/29/09)

1. I don’t have kids, so I don’t know how one goes about teaching the birds and the bees. However, I’m guessing that waking children in the middle of the night and showing them porn is not the way to go about it. But, apparently, that’s legal.

2. Since moving downtown, a couple co-workers have had some problems with vandals and their cars. We all know about Glenn’s fiasco. Another co-worker had her plates stolen while her car was at a West Village garage. Maybe these new security cameras in Uptown will bring peace of mind to anyone who parks there. If nothing else, they look pretty snazzy.

3. Tim told you about Newt Gingrich’s group awarding the owner of The Lodge with an “Entrepreneur of the Year” award. Well. Here’s the latest news on that. The award was revoked, and the entry fee money ($5,000) goes back to the owner, Dawn Rizos. Rizos has decided to take that money and donate it to an animal group in Celina. They’re naming it Newt’s Nook — A Home for Pit Bulls.
