Kristy L. Mazurek

They say a person is known by the company she keeps. With respect to Kristy Mazurek, who is running in the Democratic primary race for the 143th Assembly seat about to be vacated in disgrace by Conservative Angela Wozniak, who replaced Democrat Dennis Gabryszak — who also vacated it in disgrace — the news from her current and former company isn’t good.

Kristy Mazurek is a close confidant of Steve Pigeon, who is under federal and state investigation and has been indicted on nine state felony charges relating to Pigeon’s relationship with former State Supreme Court Justice John Michalek. For his part, Michalek has already pled guilty to crimes related to the same set of facts, resigned his office, and awaits sentencing in September.

While Mazurek pulls the Buffalo News’ leg attempting to distance herself from Pigeon, he grants her power of attorney to sell off his condo. As it happens, Pigeon executed the document in San Diego.

“I am not Steve’s keeper,” she said. “Just because I’m associated with someone. … does that make me a bad person?”

Not necessarily, but when you have power of attorney over someone’s business transactions you are, in a way, their “keeper”; at least for the purpose(s) described. But no one is arguing whether or not Mazurek is a “bad person”. There are plenty of “bad people” who are concomitantly qualified or competent to be elected to public office. Mazurek isn’t one of them. Look, if Mazurek doesn’t have a problem being associated with Pigeon, she shouldn’t crop him out of pictures she uses on her lit.

Price of EpiPens Deeply Discounted in Canada

Maker of the EpiPen, Mylan has been under intense criticism for the dramatic price increase of it’s EpiPen, which is a single-dose, auto-injector loaded with epinephrine. The drug neutralizes powerful allergic reactions, like to bee stings and food allergies.

These pens sell for around $600 for a two-pack in the US.

In Canada, they are much cheaper.

Today we drove over to the Pharma Plus Drug Mart on Garrison Road in Fort Erie. I walked in, went to the pharmacy counter and asked for an EpiPen. The clerk picked one off a nearby shelf and placed it on the counter. No prescription was necessary.

Total cost, $132.29 in Canadian funds. Factor in the currency exchange rate and it prices out at $101.65 in American dollars. That’s roughly one-third the cost of the same item sold in the US.

‘Willy Wonka’ Star Gene Wilder Dies at 83

gene wilder

Gene Wilder, star of “Willy Wonka” and several classic Mel Brooks comedies, is dead at the age of 83.

Wilder’s nephew Jordan Walker-Pearlman said the comedy legend died late Sunday in Stamford, Conn. from complications from Alzheimer’s disease, a condition the actor kept private for three years so as not to disappoint fans.

“He simply couldn’t bear the idea of one less smile in the world,” his nephew said.

Mel Brooks tweeted on Monday that his longtime friend and collaborator was “One of the truly great talents of our time. He blessed every film we did with his magic & he blessed me with his friendship.”

Wilder’s big break came in 1968 when he was cast in Brooks’ “The Producers” opposite Zero Mostel. Wilder had met Brooks a few years earlier when Brooks was working on the script, then just a screenplay called “Springtime for Hitler.”

Wilder received an Oscar nomination for the role of Leo Bloom, but the movie did poorly at the box office. “Willy Wonka” followed, but ticket sales also disappointed. Woody Allen’s “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex* (But Were Afraid to Ask)” was his first hit, after which Wilder convinced Brooks to direct a film he had come up with himself: “Young Frankenstein.” The black-and-white slapstick comedy was a smash, and was shortly followed by another Brooks hit, “Blazing Saddles.”

Mylan to launch generic EpiPen at half the price of original

August 29, 2016

 By Ankur Banerjee

(Reuters) – Mylan NV said it would launch the first generic version of its allergy auto-injector EpiPen at half the price of the branded product, the drugmaker’s second step in less than a week to counter a wave of criticism over the product’s high price.

The company reduced the out-of-pocket costs of EpiPen for some patients last week, but kept the list price at about $600, a move that lawmakers said was not enough. EpiPen cost about $100 in 2008.

Mylan said on Monday it expected to launch the generic product “in several weeks” at a list price of $300, an highly unusual move considering the branded product is still under patent protection and rival treatments have failed to get regulatory clearances. There will be two pens in each packet.

Trump Bolsters Foreign-Policy Team by Adding Carson and Palin

The New Yorker

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—After stumbling badly on an interview question about Ukraine, the Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump attempted on Tuesday to reassure voters about his geopolitical expertise by adding the retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and the former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to his team of foreign-policy advisers.

“Donald Trump always said that, as President, he would surround himself with the best people,” Trump’s spokesperson, Hope Hicks, said. “In Governor Palin and Dr. Carson, Mr. Trump now has the Dream Team.”

Speaking to reporters, Palin dismissed the controversy over Ukraine as “much ado about a gotcha question.”

“Donald Trump is one hundred and ten percent correct when he says that no one needs to be worrying about Ukraine,” she said. “If you look Ukraine up on Google Maps, like I just did, it’s right where it’s always been.”

Dr. Carson said that, as President, Donald Trump would support the territorial integrity of Ukraine and “its magnificent network of underground grain tunnels.”

“I cannot overemphasize the importance of Ukraine’s grain pipeline,” he said. “If you choke off Ukraine, Europe cannot bake bread.”

Trump’s spokesperson said that the additions to his foreign-policy brain trust should give voters “great confidence” that a Trump White House would be equal to the challenge of an international crisis. “When that 3 a.m. call comes in, and Mr. Trump is busy on Twitter, Dr. Carson and Governor Palin will be there to take the call,” she said.

He’s Not Running, But Pigeon’s Name Comes Up in Mazurek-Wallace Race for Assembly

You might think the names of Kristy L. Mazurek or Monica P. Wallace would dominate the 143rd Assembly contest in Cheektowaga and Lancaster this primary season.

After all, they face each other for the Democratic nomination on Sept. 13.

But not this year. Not in this political climate.

G. Steven Pigeon seems to enter just about every discussion of the race, especially in light of Mazurek’s long association with the political operative. And Wallace is devoting much of her campaign to linking the indicted Pigeon to Mazurek, who in turn, defends herself as an independent Democrat waging her own effort.

For University Heights Residents, a Year Has Made a World of Difference

UB students returned in force to the University Heights neighborhood Friday, but police were waiting to head off potential problems. (Sharon Cantillon/Buffalo News)
UB students returned in force to the University Heights neighborhood Friday, but police were waiting to head off potential problems.

Friday night, traditionally one of the biggest party nights of the year for university students in the University Heights neighborhood, some things remained the same this year. Some things were very different.

Thousands of students packed buses at the Amherst campus and traveled into the city neighborhood, arriving as frequently as every three minutes, not every 20 minutes, as planned.

Once they got off the buses, the students walked the streets, looking for house parties. They found the parties on Winspear Avenue, Northrup Place and Englewood Avenue, as well as some nearby streets.

But Buffalo police were out in force, and they broke up house parties, dispersing the students.

Neighbors, some of whom felt besieged last year as they watched the flow of loud students clogging the sidewalks, praised the police presence.

Pence Recaptured After Fleeing Trump Campaign Bus

The New Yorker

VIRGINIA (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it a “scary moment” and a “close call,” Donald Trump’s campaign officials confirmed that they had recaptured Mike Pence after the Indiana governor attempted to flee the campaign bus in the early hours of Friday morning.

According to the campaign, Pence had asked to stop at a McDonald’s in rural Virginia so that he could use the bathroom, but aides grew concerned when the governor failed to reappear after twenty minutes.

After determining that Pence had given them the slip, Trump staffers fanned out across the Virginia backcountry, where the governor was believed to have fled.

News that Pence had vanished touched off a panic in Indiana, where residents feared that he might return to resume his political career.

After forty-five minutes of searching, however, campaign officials located a bedraggled and dazed Pence walking along Virginia State Route 287, where the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee was attempting unsuccessfully to hitch a ride.

A confrontation that Trump aides characterized as “tense” ensued, after which a sobbing Pence returned to the bus.

In the aftermath of Pence’s disappearance, Hope Hicks, Trump’s press secretary, attempted to downplay the severity of the incident. “This is the kind of thing that happens in the course of a long and demanding campaign,” she said. “Having said that, we’re grateful to have Mike Pence back with us, and we won’t let him get away again.”

Reportedly, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie offered to fill in for Pence in the event that he became unable to fulfill his duties. That offer was declined.
