Charles Durning – Regular New Yorker

By: Wednesday December 26, 2012 4:39 pm

Just as security was trying to throw us out, Morgan Freeman came out to say hello to Durning, so we got to stay, and then all the rest of the cast trickled out. By that point we were all pretty crocked and Durning tried to pass us off as his nieces.

Really nice, down to earth, fun guy, and a really great night.

Why Isn’t This a Front Page Story Nationwide?

By: Tuesday December 11, 2012 7:25 am

The 50 state settlement notwithstanding, the Department of Justice and every attorney general in the country have a brand new, slam dunk, open and shut case against every single bank that is still allowing a foreclosure case to go forward based on DOCX/LPS false evidence.

Late Night: Interesting Timing on the DocX Founder’s Guilty Plea

By: Wednesday November 21, 2012 8:00 pm

Yesterday, Lorraine Brown, the founder of DocX/LPS was scheduled to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud at 1 PM EST. I found out about it around 2 PM from the wonderful Lynn Syzmoniac who has nagged an noodle the US Attorney’s Office about this case 4-evah (she really is the unsung hero of this development, but Lanny Bruer managed to leave her out of his self congratulatory press release).

Why the Florida and Missouri Guilty Pleas from Docx Founder May Change the Mortgage Crisis

By: Wednesday November 21, 2012 6:00 am

Yesterday I dashed off a post about the guilty plea taken by Lorraine Brown, the founder of DocX/LPS in which she admits that it was the custom and practice of her company to employee people to forge the signatures of others and to falsely notarize those signatures creating assignments, allonges and affidavits that were both forgeries and perjuries. In short, fraud.

Mayor Bloomberg Owes OWS an Apology

By: Monday November 12, 2012 7:27 am

Mayor Mike has a lot of egg on his face, so does Ray Kelly. Despite being derided, kettled, pepper sprayed, and generally treated like subhumans by the NYC government, Occupy Wall Street continues to rise above the pettiness that characterizes the behavior and assumptions of “various serious people.”

Emergency Preparedness

By: Sunday October 28, 2012 6:45 am

So, the Governor has declared a state of emergency in New York state. He has also sent out a blast email, which I will copy below with emergency preparedness tips.

Obama, Sandy and the Oval Office Address

By: Saturday October 27, 2012 7:52 am

This is a moment for the President to show that he is not W. No reading My Pet Goat, no flyovers while New Orleans drowns, no phoney aircraft carrier landings. Now is the time for President Obama to show proactive leadership.

There is an unprecedented storm coming. Obama needs to do an Oval Office broadcast and tell the American people just what the federal government is doing to prepare for it.

Sandy Is the October Surprise

By: Thursday October 25, 2012 4:20 pm

It seems that there is a hurricane coming up from the tropics. It seems that there is also a cold front zooming down from Canada; depending on the path of the hurricane, the two could meet right over Long Island.

During a full moon.

Will the Ryan Budget Usher In an Era of One Party Control in DC?

By: Friday October 5, 2012 7:20 am

The Ryan Budget appears to be sinking 1) The Romney campaign, 2) Ryan’s re-election campaign (did you hear he’s too chicken to even debate Rob Zerban?), 3) and creating a desire for Democratic party hegemony in Washington.
