E!’s FASHION POLICE SHOW: C’mon, the only way Joan Rovers got away with it so long was because she was the Trump of the fashion world, always so outrageous she was given a pass and an indulgent pat on the head. But the NYC zeitgeist now is inclusive and judgement of other women because of what they wear is so old it should be in the Museum of Natural History with the Dinosaurs.
MCDONALD’S AND MONSTROUS SERVES OF STEAK: Heart attack food has had it’s day. Practically everyone in NYC has got addicted to living, (so cool and cutting edge!) and hence the proliferation of salad bars, juice bars, fantastic burgers heavy on the vegetables and fast food that tastes great and so healthy you’ll live to see another day.
TIPS IN RESTAURANTS: Having to rely on tips to make the rent is a pathetic way of paying a server who is a human being, just like you who deserves dignity. No they won’t stop being nice you you when you eat out, they are as interested in doing their job well as you.
HOMELESSNESS IN NYC: Look NYC just decide. If you only want people living here who earn 6 figures a year, erect a fence around the city, check their bank balances before they enter and have done with it. Otherwise get serious about the fact that roughly 50% of New Yorkers have trouble making the rent and start providing accommodation at different price points.
All the energy right now is going into the big shiny towers with multi million dollar apartments only Russian and Chinese oligarch’s can afford. Equal muscle has to go into supporting the New Yorkers who hang on by their fingernails in the housing market.
