The Q at Parkside

(for those for whom the Parkside Q is their hometrain)

News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.

MTOPP Over the Big-Top

At last night's Board meeting - pure hilarity. Alicia and Janine et al offered incoming attendees a "program" for the evening that features yours truly as the "star." Which of course is fitting, given that I'm the "biggest racist" on the board, and thus demand top billing.




And guess what? Stapled to each program was a bag of popcorn. Some of which was Kosher! Bravo.

What an asshole. She made CB9 into the circus that it is today.

And she remains part of ULURP because... ?

she was on a sub-committee, never ULURP proper. When she found out that didn't give her automatic ULURP committee membership, she had a 45 minute tantrum. My wife was there for that...and vowed never to return.

Sub-committee, schmub-committee - why is she part of the process at all?

Music to listen to while you watch the spectacle:

I think everyone on a community board should have a title.

That way, it would be just like the local Kiwanis club, Lions club, or volunteer department.

Hey at least she spelled your name correctly! Better than they did with our Congressperson. Both Yvette and Clarke spelled wrong.
I guess when you're leading a crusade, you gotta let some of the details slide. (Along with the truth...)

You should totally frame that. Holy cow, you can't make this stuff up even if you tried!

To be fair, that's really creative. If only she put that much work into actual useful debate about issues rather than simple name calling.

Clarkson FlatBed said...

Agreed! It's hilarious and I feel somewhat honored.

All the energy is not winning over converts though. She's pissed off just about everyone who could be a potential ally, so at this point the half-dozen MTOPP die-hards are writing this stuff for each other, and to keep the chaos rolling.

I assure you, though, calling Avi Lesches the "token Jew" was not well-taken. Especially since there was a secular Jew and another Orthodox Jew on committee. It pays to do due diligence!

So... when does CB9 tell her to F off, get her out of meetings, and proceed with business? I don't get it.

babs said...

So did anything actually get accomplished? I got stuck at work & couldn't make it.

If she didn't have only fake jobs like a "charity" to run or AirnB income she wouldn't have time for any of this the last couple years. But it's true, this is so cool, save it for your kids' scrapbooks. They will treasure it.

To the tune of a ZZ Top song. "She's got Laws. She knows how to use them."
