Heard a noise complaint from someone at Center Pointe was called in to the police against Greene Street Club last night...,

The great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearance
as though they were realities,
and are often more influenced by the things that seem than those that are.

Niccolo Machiavelli

...only problem was,
the club was closed except for one employee
at 11:15pm.

All animals are equal,
but some animals are more equal than others.

George Orwell

Can some things not matter until they do,
unless they actually do while you believe they don’t until it’s too late?

What if what you think isn’t?

Everybody sooner or later sits down to a banquet of consequences.

Robert Louis Stevenson

If big print can give what fine print takes,
can winning the wrong game lose the right one?

Can business and/or political interests negatively affect investigative journalism,
by sheltering some from inhospitable exposure
while simultaneously disparaging opponents?

Why would the news industry
under report about grass roots organizing
by downtown's club employees on the noise issue
against Roy, Robbie and Zack?

The partisan, when engaged in a dispute,
cares nothing about the rights of the question,
but is anxious only to convince his hearers of his own assertions.


If what some think isn’t what you do, and what “they” say sounds relatively better,
could it be easier to believe what “they” think, even if it might not be true?

If some financial estimates and hypothetical illustrations
assume perpetual levels of varying data, can some information be manipulated
like feasability studies commissioned by some who want certain conclutions?

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.

Thomas Pynchon

Can some come to irrational conclusions to justify erroneous assumptions?

Could a moment when most understand what few knew
be more important than the first discovery?

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

Aldous Huxley
