The Buffalo Zoo is a hoot whatever your age.

One day last week a group of women were having a blast making jokes about Gorilla gorilla gorilla (seriously, that’s the zoological name for the lowland gorilla). He was sprawled on his back with his feet in the air. “Typical male,” one gal cracked. “Sticking his chest out, sucking in his gut.”

Ha, ha! I joined in the laughter. Then I saw that my little niece and nephew, 9-year-old Barbara and 7-year-old Georgie, were frowning. They didn’t explain why, but I got the idea they sided with the gorilla, that they felt that these strangers and I were insulting him.

Moss Fiasco a Black Eye for UB Sports

Justin Moss

Two years ago, Athletic Director Danny White fired Reggie Witherspoon as his men’s basketball coach and brought in Bobby Hurley to lift the university’s national profile and help rebrand little Buffalo as New York State’s college sports program.

Two years ago, Athletic Director Danny White fired Reggie Witherspoon as his men’s basketball coach and brought in Bobby Hurley to lift the university’s national profile and help rebrand little Buffalo as New York State’s college sports program.

Hurley was a big name in college hoops, a shiny, recognizable brand. Hiring a college legend raised hope and expectation, while arousing natural concerns that the school might cut corners to win in a hurry.

Borowitz Bitz of Newz

Scott Walker keeps changing his position on immigration because the Koch brothers keep fighting over the remote.

“Instead of golfing on Martha’s Vineyard, Obama should be back in Washington fixing the Chinese economy.”
— Republican talking point

People are flocking to Trump because they crave authenticity, and he is an authentic asshole.

The truly terrifying thing is that we have now gotten used to the idea of Donald Trump running for President.

Donald Trump is the most efficient manifestation of American democracy circa 2016: instead of a billionaire funding a sociopath, they’re the same guy.

The more enthusiastic voters are about building a border wall, the less likely they are to know where the border is actually situated, a new poll finds.

I’m having a hard time adjusting to Mexicans being the source of all our problems after so many years of being told that gay couples were.

“Every baby is a creation of God Almighty, and as Jesus is my savior, every baby has the right to live,” Cruz said. “Just not here.”

To all those opposed to the government giving people free shit: start by opposing all the free shit the government gives billionaires and corporations, thanks to the tax code.

Republicans Defend Right to Be Born and Immediately Deported

The New Yorker

DES MOINES (The Borowitz Report)—Eager to shore up their pro-life credentials, several Republican Presidential candidates used campaign appearances on Wednesday to assert that the babies of undocumented workers have the right to be born and then immediately deported.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee sounded that theme in a campaign appearance in Des Moines, telling his audience, “We must vigilantly safeguard the life of the unborn, and, as soon it is no longer unborn, make sure that it leaves and takes its illegal parents with it.”

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker concurred, telling a crowd in Iowa City, “Every life is precious, and we must protect that life before marching it to the border twenty-four hours later, at the very most.”

Perhaps the most evangelical invocation of the right to life came from Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), campaigning in Cedar Rapids. “Every baby is a creation of God Almighty, and as Jesus is my savior, every baby has the right to live,” he said. “Just not here.”

The initial response to the candidates’ statements was somewhat mixed, with some G.O.P. voters complaining that Walker’s twenty-four-hour window for deporting babies was overly lenient.

Sentiment Building to Deport Nation’s Billionaires

by Andy Borowitz

(The Borowitz Report)—They don’t pay taxes. They circumvent our laws. They get free stuff from the government. They are America’s billionaires, and many would like to see them gone.

According to a new survey by the University of Minnesota’s Opinion Research Institute, the American people hold the nation’s billionaires in lower esteem than ever before, and a majority would like to see new laws enacted to deport them.

“They come here, take thousands of our jobs, and export them overseas,” one respondent said, in an opinion echoed by many others in the survey.

“They are part of a shadow economy that sucks billions of dollars out of the United States every year and puts it in Switzerland and the Caymans,” another said.

Images of hedge-fund managers arriving via helicopter in the Hamptons this summer have only reinforced the impression that authorities have turned a blind eye to their movements.

“Many of these people should be in prison, and the government is looking the other way,” one respondent said.

Stirring even more controversy is the billionaires’ practice of having babies in the United States and using the nation’s porous estate-tax laws to pass down untold wealth to the next generation.

“They should leave and take their children with them,” one respondent said.

Even after it is pointed out to respondents that some billionaires, such as Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, have made significant philanthropic contributions to the world, a majority of those polled stubbornly maintained their negative views of billionaires.

“Look, in every group you’re going to have some good ones,” one of the respondents said. “But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the vast majority of these people are destroying this country.”

New Bandshell to Turn Bassett Park Into Performance Space

Amherst flag

A $450,000 project is getting underway at Bassett Park in Amherst.

A groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday for a new bandshell for the park at Youngs and Klein roads.

The park’s bandshell for years has played host to a weekly summer concert series, drawing more than 2,000 people this year, said Mary-Diana Pouli, executive director of the town’s Youth & Recreation Department.

But, she said, the existing bandshell – in place since 1974 – has deteriorated beyond repair.

“The new structure will feature a roof that extends out over the stage area to provide shelter for musicians from the rain and will cut down on glare from the sun,” Pouli said.

“Now that we’re putting a roof over it we really want to turn that more into a performance space,” Pouli said. “It just opens up for us a new avenue of entertainment. We’re really hoping to add to the program so we can offer things to all ages.”

The project was budgeted as part of the town’s capital-improvement program and has been under discussion for a couple of years.

The town awarded the contract to the Spicer Group of Buffalo, which should complete the project by November.

Sedita Being Rated For Judgeship

Frank A. Sedita said he has had discussions with family and friends about his “career path.”
Frank A. Sedita said he has had discussions with family and friends about his “career path.”

Any rating could be a moot point

The Erie County Bar Association’s Judiciary Committee on Tuesday will evaluate District Attorney Frank A. Sedita’s qualifications to become a judge, even though a cross-endorsement by the major parties of Sedita and another candidate for two State Supreme Court seats would give voters no choice, regardless of how he’s rated.

Sedita will not be present at the committee session and has yet to announce he is a candidate for the court seat this November. But the Judiciary Committee has the right to determine ratings for announced and unannounced candidates, according to attorney Shari Jo Reich, committee chairwoman.

Judicial ratings range from “outstanding,” “well qualified” or “qualified” to “not recommended.” Typically, “outstanding” is reserved for sitting judges or individuals with quasi-judicial experience.

Sedita, a Democrat in his second four-year term as district attorney, ran unopposed for re-election in 2012 after he was cross-endorsed by the county’s Democratic and Republican parties.
