Bob Sheppard the voice of Yankee Stadium has died at age 99. I could never write about him the way a professional sports writer could so here is Bill Madden from The New York Daily News.
Also hard to conceive but here in NYC creepos - that is my term for creeps, mug Grannies and I wish there was a special punishment for people that hurt our most vulnerable New Yorkers.
Margarita Fuentes is 87 years old and she was out walking at 161 Street to get some rice and beans according to The New York Daily News when she was attacked my a monster. He ripped her crucifix off and punched her in the eye. The article in The New York Daily News is worth reading so check it out. A very sweet photo of this little Great Grandmother and a true survivor. Thank goodness she did not break any bones!
The police have apprehended the alleged cowardly thief attacker and believe it or not Margarita Fuentes feels sorry for his family! Not for him but for the family. She has many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She feels better knowing he has been arrested.
There have been too many attacks on seniors in NYC. Very upsetting.
On a very cheerful note: I hear a lot of joyful screams and they are New Yorkers celebrating Spain's victory over the Netherlands. Spain wins the World Cup and New Yorkers are screaming with joy.
Happy to share the sounds of people screaming and they are expressing joy!

I will send this to State Attorney General Cuomo's office like I forward other concerns. Do you think I contact the FBI as well? Read my piece on how "two Johns" helped flush democracy down the toilet along with Mike Bloomberg and Christine Quinn's the candidates they endorsed. John Sexton is paid 1.8 million dollars to be president of NYU and that doesn't include his real estate digs here in NYC supplied by NYU and John Sutter is the mysterious owner of The Villagers and a bunch of papers he gives away for free.
I video taped NYU and The Villager the hosts of the campaign debates between Christine Quinn and Yetta Kurland and a third opponent Derr -- turn away NY1 and other press as well as seniors and a senior in a wheelchair although after way too long of a fight they finally let the gentleman in the wheel chair in. Other activists filmed the suspicous and disturbing events as well. Go to YouTube Search engine and type in NYU The Villager. NYU and The Villager wanted to make sure Christine Quinn and Mike Bloomberg got their third term. John Sexton even ran down to testify Bloomberg must have his third term and we all know why -- for real estate grabs that Bill Thompson would not sanction. They weren't alone but than they should not be hosting debates with someone they endorse and lucky for me I caught them turning away seniors that stood on line.
I interview Norman Siegel who was there with me he said something to the effect these people should be praised for turning up to participate in democracy not turned away.
If there is not enough room to accommodate the people and NYU has more than enough room than let the debates be held in Central Park with jumbo screens but make sure that the people are included and not excluded especially ones that the people hosting are attempting to turn away because they don't want their candidate. By the way, can John Sexton even vote here in NYC? A lot of rich people including Matt Damon can't even vote in NY because they don't want to pay NY taxes but endorsed Bloomberg.
Right now there are citizens working to put term limits back and make sure that city council can never vote themselves a third term. Think about that and the shady dealings including back room deals with Mike Bloomberg Christine Quinn and gang to make sure Mike Bloomberg got his third term.
