In 2006, HUD's inspector general investigated remarks made by Mr. Jackson that some interpreted to mean that contracts were awarded in some cases based on political affiliation. The report didn't find any wrongdoing at the agency.
"Why should I reward someone who doesn't like the president, so they can use funds to try to campaign against the president?" Mr. Jackson was quoted as saying in the Dallas Business Journal. "Logic says they don't get the contract. That's the way I believe."

You can't front on that. Thanks for letting me know about them, Fraction.
I made corned beef and cabbage for my friends last night, it was also awesome.
And I ran three miles.
Since I have stopped smoking I have returned to the self I seemed to have forgotten six months ago when I started, which is REALLY neat and weird. I forgot what an incredible chatterbox I am, and how fun it is to talk to people I don't know, and blah blah blah blah blah and I'm ridiculously productive at work and feels like I had some kind of yellow tar colored shell on all goddamn winter!
Like wow, man. Okay, back to the workin.

If you pull down a six- or seven-figure salary working in a cushy media job, and especially if you spend time in a makeup chair before putting on your gossipy news “show”, you forfeit the right to speak for the “working class”, or anybody who has a real job, ever again. If your made-up face on your catty chat show is beamed down to normal people from far-out satellites, you are basically a Mick Ronson riff away from being Ziggy Stardust, and should probably work on coming to grips with that, rather than imagining that you are somehow the authentic proletariat. You’re a freaky moonage rich person in spaced-out freaky daydreamland, man. Deal with it.
Oh I don't know how we'd survive 2008 without the Poor Man Institute.
Actually, that reminds me. A lot of people say shit like "I don't know how we're going to survive if ___" and usually ___ is filled with "another Republican is elected," and I know I am ever the annoying optimist, but seriously:
Fuck that. I don't know about you, but I'm not one to just pack up my shit and go home.

I swear the station announcer was fucking drunk when he recorded the message, he really sounded like it, and the crap PA system didn't help either. And after one World Trade Center train rolled by in Grove St while some 5 had gone towards Newark and no 33rd street trains turned up, and I had been standing there half an hour trying to decipher the message, I figured out he was trying to tell us there was only one train going to the city, the WTC train.
Everybody else stayed on the platform waiting for the 33rd. Except the two girls I was standing nearby, I said "this is the only train, you should get on."
Signs everywhere commemorating the 100th anniversary of that crap rail road. And then the very next night, Saturday night? The whole things shits itself.
I am not a fan of the PATH train.
