James Garner, the wry and handsome leading man who slid seamlessly between television and the movies but was best known as the amiable gambler Bret Maverick in the 1950s western “Maverick” and the cranky sleuth Jim Rockford in the 1970s series “The Rockford Files,” died on Saturday night at his home in Los Angeles. He was 86.

His publicist, Jennifer Allen, said he died of natural causes.

He was a genuine star but as an actor something of a paradox: a lantern-jawed, brawny athlete whose physical appeal was both enhanced and undercut by a disarming wit. He appeared in more than 50 films, many of them dramas — but, as he established in one of his notable early performances, as a battle-shy naval officer in “The Americanization of Emily” (1964) and had shown before that in “Maverick” — he was most at home as an iconoclast, a flawed or unlikely hero.

An understated comic actor, he was especially adept at conveying life’s tiny bedevilments. One of his most memorable roles was as a perpetually flummoxed pitchman for Polaroid cameras in the late 1970s and early 1980s, in droll commercials in which he played a vexed husband and Mariette Hartley played his needling wife. They were so persuasive that Ms. Hartley had a shirt printed with the declaration “I am not Mrs. James Garner.”

His one Academy Award nomination was for the 1985 romantic comedy“Murphy’s Romance,” in which he played a small-town druggist who woos the new-in-town divorced mom (Sally Field) with a mixture of self-reliance, grouchy charm and lack of sympathy for fools.

N.F.L. Sentences Brady to a Year with the Jets


by Andy Borowitz
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (The Borowitz Report) – In what football insiders are calling an unexpectedly severe punishment, the National Football League has sentenced the New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady to a year with the New York Jets for his role in the so-called Deflategate scandal.

The punishment drew howls of protest from Patriots fans and management, with many calling it the harshest in league history, but N.F.L. Commissioner Roger Goodell defended the decision as “a necessary deterrent.”

“We need to send the message that this league has zero tolerance for cheating,” Goodell said. “We believe that a year of playing quarterback for the Jets sends that message loud and clear.”

Brady was reportedly in a state of shock when he heard the news of his punishment. He later met with reporters in a hastily called press conference during which he frequently seemed on the verge of tears.

“I am going to fight this decision with every fibre of my being,” Brady said. “This is America. You can’t force a person to play for the Jets.”

At a sports bar in Manhattan, the reaction to the impending arrival of the Jets’ longtime nemesis was muted. One Jets fan observed, “Look, Brady’s a dick, but even he didn’t deserve this.”

Obama’s Gun Confiscation Plan Plagued by Website Glitches

Andy Borowitz's photo.

WASHINGTON – President Obama’s signature gun confiscation program has been plagued by website problems which may delay the President’s goal of collecting the nation’s three hundred million guns by the end of 2016.

Officials first noticed the problems when users attempting to schedule their mandatory gun pickups logged on to the new federal website, www.gunreturn.gov, and received an error message. The gun confiscation program, which Obama enacted through an executive order, will now be delayed until the site can be fixed, but the President attempted to downplay the problems.

“You don’t take everyone’s guns away without hitting a few bumps in the road,” he said.

Fiorina Has High Name Recognition Among Thousands She Fired

by

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—One day after the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. Carly Fiorina announced her candidacy for the 2016 Republican Presidential nomination, a new poll shows that she enjoys extremely high name recognition among the tens of thousands of former H.P. employees she fired.

According to the poll, conducted by the University of Minnesota’s Opinion Research Institute, Fiorina’s name recognition stands at a hundred per cent among the legions of employees she terminated, with many of them calling the former C.E.O. “unforgettable.”

Additionally, a broad majority of the laid-off workers described their feelings about Fiorina as “intense,” and noted that very few days go by when they do not invoke her name in a vehement manner.

Davis Logsdon, who supervised the survey for the University of Minnesota, said that Fiorina’s entry into the Republican race had “energized” many former H.P. employees.

“Most of them were apathetic about the race before, but now they are very excited to see how it plays out for Carly Fiorina,” he said.

Impressively, Fiorina’s hundred-per-cent name recognition among fired H.P. employees ranks her ahead of other names mentioned in the survey, such as Darth Vader (ninety-nine per cent) and Satan (ninety-seven per cent).

DiNapoli: Audits Find Certain IDAs Lack Job Creation Data

DiNapoli

Concerns with Contracts, Unauthorized Loans Also Identified

Recent audits by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli have revealed a number of local Industrial Development Agencies (IDAs) do not verify if businesses receiving tax breaks are actually meeting job creation goals. These same IDAs are unable to recover incentives given to companies that fail to reach specific benchmarks because of inadequate contract agreements.

DiNapoli’s office audited the IDAs in Cattaraugus County, Orleans County, Oswego County, Schenectady County and Schuyler County. The IDAs responses are included in the audit reports.

“These audits highlighted what is both right and wrong with IDAs in our state,” said DiNapoli. “Too many communities are left with unanswered questions about the effectiveness of providing costly tax breaks to private companies. IDAs owe it to taxpayers to appropriately track whether companies are delivering on their promises and take back benefits if they are not. My office will continue to scrutinize the operations of these entities so that residents can better determine if their local IDA is fulfilling its mission.”

Will Amherst Continue to be Know As the Concrete Jungle

Town of Amherst

The upcoming election could be the best chance the people have to show party chairmen who endorse old faces who’ve been in the rodeo before.  The residents must look into their hearts and vote for the best candidate not the losers.

In one party the chairman chose two candidate for our important town board seats who had a total of 7 races in Amherst between them and only 2 wins.  

Party chairman put up the same candidates year after year.  They are the ones who gave Amherst the nick name “The Concrete Jungle.” Developers gave us a ton of concrete and very little green space.
