Copenhagen, Friendly for a Price

Entry Img

Don’t Even Look The exchange rate is about 6.4 Danish Krone to the dollar but unfortunately, nothing can be purchased for a dollar, or two or three, etc., etc. I have given to not looking at prices. A danish and a coffee is 60 Krone, a 10-minute cab ride is 100 Krone and it’s upwards […]

“Road Trip” Off to Greenland

Entry Img

But Copenhagen First (and Last) So, it’s off to chilly Greenland for ten days but who knew that the way there was through Denmark? The Danes own Greenland (sort of) so we come here and then fly back across on Tuesday. I had paid for an economy-plus ticket on Scandinavian Airlines but my so-called frugal […]

Shady Schait and Ducky Don

Entry Img

Jeff Sessions Feels the Love Donald Trump all but fired his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, in an interview with the New York Times yesterday.

IAFF in Court: Motion Denied

Entry Img

Case Now Set to Proceed Parties in Pete Gorman’s wrongful firing/retaliation suit against Harold Schaitberger met this past Friday in Judge Wingo’s chambers here in DC Superior Court.

Anne Marie Morris, British MP: Clueless or Worse Her gentle-ladyship was discussing the exit of Britain from the European Union when she said: “Now I’m sure there will be many people who’ll challenge that, but my response and my request is look at the detail, it isn’t all doom and gloom.

Line of Duty: Miosotis Familia

Entry Img

Rest in Peace? Miosotis Familia, veteran NYPD officer, was killed last week by a deranged, psychotic man as she sat in a mobile command unit in the Bronx. Her murder was not unlike the 2014 killings of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafeal Ramos, shot as they sat in their marked cruiser. Or Dallas police […]

What Would George Think?

Entry Img

How About a Little Self-Control? George Washington, President Number One, is known to have been a man of few words. Historians point to his rather humble beginnings and his lack of a formal education as reasons for his relative silence. He was also in the company of intellectual big dogs, Adams, Jefferson and others, who […]

Fox Leaves Board; Shady Schait Kept in Dark

Entry Img

Out-Foxed? Recently elected IAFF Seventh District vice-president Kelly Fox is reported to be resigning from the board to take a position with the California public employee retirement system, a.k.a. CalPERS. Sources say he held his cards close to his vest, or at least close enough that Harold Schaitberger did not know until just about everyone […]

Shady Schait’s “Missed Opportunity”

Entry Img

Mr. Blow Writes In What a tragic missed opportunity. Harold and the entire board could have justified an all expenses paid trip to London. It could have been one of those ‘fact finding’ missions. First class travel, of course, 5 star hotels, luxury dining. Chauffeured Rolls? Hmmm…maybe a bit too much. Go with the Jag. […]

IAFF and Grenfell : Another Missed Opportunity

Entry Img

Asleep at the Switch or Worse On June 14, 2017, a fire consumed Grenfell Tower, a residential building located in North Kensington, London, killing 79 and injuring many more.
