Good Morning World! Monday just gave me the Finger

You know your day is really going to turn out miserable when you try to make breakfast and this happens.

So after you try to clear the house of the billows of smoke that filled the kitchen (that didn't set off the smoke detectors I'll have you know, so they are probably in need of new batteries) you walk to the curb to retrieve the morning news and find this staring you in the face.

That story and a few (brief) related ones behind Newsday's paywall. However, it seems what Islanders Point Blank suggested would happen Friday night is indeed the case. The reduction in scale proposed by Kate Murray and the Town of Hempstead is pathetic. It is no longer a "vision of the future." It's simply a nondescipt blink in a dying suburbia.

Interestingly enough, they managed to get a quote from free agent Paul Martin's agent regarding his conversations during negotiations with Garth Snow about the status of the Islanders future on Long Island. "Garth said the team was there for five more years."

Yes, that is how much longer the Islanders lease extends. So, all bets are off for the Islanders as no one knows what the outcome past 2015 will be. Move? Sell? Concede?

Personally, I'm just tired of it all. I can't imagine how tired of it I would be had it been MY $15 million spent and wasted on top of $20 million a year lost on my business. Charles Wang declined to comment for the Newsday story?

I think Monday morning just made the comment for him. It can be summed up in two words; and one of them rhymes with "puck."
