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.

Free Prom Dresses While They Last

I've heard of politicians kissing babies. I've heard of them shaking hands. I've even heard of politicians giving a few quid for some pro quos. But this one is new to me:

Frankly, I think it's awesome to think of recycling prom dresses, and not breaking parents' banks for a one-night affair, so please don't think I'm Mr. Snark over here. Well, maybe a baby snark, not a Great White Snark.

There are several of these events every year, believe it or not (most recently, one was held by the Junior League that included accessories and makeovers), but this is the first time I've heard of a government official doing it.

I guess planning this was why he missed the debate.

Well,it's a nice way to get votes without having to be an effective politician. Why concentrate on getting real services for the community when you can get the you girls dresses. Ugh. The one by the Junior League sounds nice, though.
