I wanted to share with you an article that ran today regarding the lawsuit we are filing tomorrow to compel the NYS Department of Health to turn over documents regarding the closure of St. Vincent's Hospital.
I hope you will join me tomorrow, Monday August 16th at 10am on the steps of the NYS Supreme Court at 60 Centre Street (corner of Worth Street) for a press conference after the filing to show your support.
Also, Silvia Sanza, one of the Coalition members has put together a tremendous letter that has been circulating among the community to Commissioner Daines asking him to do the right thing and work to get a hospital back at the site of St. Vincent's. You can click here to see that letter.
We will be sending the letter out on Tuesday so if you have not already signed on and want to, all you need to do is email me that you want to add your name but you must do so by this Tuesday!
See you tomorrow.

Philip Markoff killed himself in prison today and his victim Julissa Brisman's family is reeling from the news. Markoff's "self-murdered" on what would have been his one year anniversary to finance Megan McAllister if he had married her.Markoff committed suicide and it was gruesome. I read some where a prison guard thought his higher education in medicine and understanding of anatomy gave him an edge over other prisoners but he sliced himself up -- I heard two different reports -- one he slit his wrists and the other there were wounds to his legs but the bottom line was his suffocated himself with a bag over his head and there was also a lot of blood.
As a woman that has a blog called "Misogynist NYC" I have a different take on this gruesome "self murder" than other reports you read.I can't imagine how the family of his victims felt when they were given the news but today perhaps they felt some relief or justice that he actually murdered himself.
On my Misogynist blog I talk about the hostility and violence is directed at girls and women.
We are warned to be careful of strangers as children and getting together with men has it's risks but his fiance, Megan McAllister thought she knew him and she was clearly wrong so do you really know people? How are murderous people able to hide their dark sides or are there red flags that people are missing.
By the way I read The New York Post every day and the reporting on corruption in NYC politics and State and City government is tops but the newspaper has to be the most misogynist paper in New York.
The header for the report on Markoff, "Masseuse murderer dead in jail". If there is a way The New York Post can demean and degrade a woman dead or alive the paper will do it.
Julissa Brisman was a beautiful young woman and she did not deserve to die this way. I have license in massaged therapy and I worked very hard to get it. I have massage babies to people with AIDS and even given gentle massage therapy to people dying so. In NYC we insist on the title "massage therapist". Of course The New York Post want to sexualize and sleaze it up and maybe even subtle put the blame of her own death on her.
The New York Daily News reports Markoff robbed escorts believing they would not report him to the police but Brisman fought back so he killed her. Even now this story seems unbelievable. I am sure some screen writer is busily writing a script right now to pitch. I would not want to watch a movie on this horror story but it is a cautionary tale.
If he had not been caught and kudos to the police and investigative work that got him behind bars than perhaps he would have continued his successful facade as finance and married McAllister only to murder her down the road. He successfully hid his true nature from his fiance so although we are warned to be careful of strangers -- you have to be judicious of people you know -- or should I say people you think you know.

The New York Post has done it again with an article by Joseph Goldstein exposing the very dirty and corrupt dealings of Mike Bloomberg and NYU.
Read the article which exposes two part times commissioner for mayor Bloomberg for being full time and lobbyists. Joseph Goldstien writes:
"Landmarks Preservation Commissioner Margery Perlmutter is on New York University's payroll to lobby for the school's large-scale expansion -- which first needs a green light from Perlmutter's commission, according to lobbying records."
"Perlmutter and two of her colleagues at the Bryan Cave lobby firm have been paid more than $42,000 by NYU to lobby the Landmarks Commission and seven other agencies for approval to build in the heart of Greenwich Village. Among its plans is a 385-foot skyscraper."
The conflict of interest committees is the biggest joke in town and by the way king Mike appoints the people who refuse to do their job.
I have had words with Mike Bloomberg twice in my life and both at city hall. The 2nd time was caught on YouTube, "Mayor Mike Bloomberg gives Suzannah B. Troy the thumbs up as she yells "Oust the king!" City Hall". The first time I did not know how corrupt he was and so committed to NYU's expansion at the expense of the community along with Amanda the peoples Burden, his socialite mega-millionaire city planner. I asked mayor Bloomberg to come visit the E. Village, Lower East Side and Bowery and he said he did and last time he mentioned how much he supports NYU and he said the people nearly lynched him. NYU rents a pink building on the Bowery next to the homeless shelter and has signs asking them to not loiter in front of their dorm. Visit 120 East 12th Street and see the facade of St. Ann's from 1847 like an albatross reminding views NYU has ruthlessly torn down our historic buildings as NYU mega dormed the East Village to death. Thank you to The New York Post for exposing so much corruption but when is there going to be a trial? See my 2 new YouTubes Mike Boomberg trial? and Christine Quinn for mayor Mike's mini me. If you want Mike Bloomberg for a 4th term vote for Christine Quinn. She takes huge kick backs aka campaign donations from developers.
Christine Quinn is no Jane Jacobs who fought for the people. Christine Quinn has sold her soul and the people of New York to developers like Mike Bloomberg but he did more buying than selling.
Note: New Yorkers are calling me and stopping me in the street asking me what is happening with the NY City Council Slush found scandals? I bring all this up because reading this article in The New York Post and also being asked questions about slushy city council members as well as city council members stealing tax payer money the question is are any high ranking city officials going to jail any time soon?
Here I am calling State Attorney's Office Southern District and telling my YouTube audience about it.
Thanks to True New from Change for sending me this article from The New York Post.
