    If he is the only obstacle (I doubt that he is) we might as well wait for a couple of years until he is dead.
    He is 70 years old and probably not too influential in politics.
    If he is not dead by then there are always younger, more horny, more corrupt guys waiting to take that place.

    His age is why he is so influential. It takes time to gain that influence.




    Good he's gone.

    From what I've heard, Sheldon has been arrested many times and he always comes back. I hope that isn't the case this time.

    NYC is a classy, sophisticated city. We dont need to tarnish its reputation with this sordid pseudo sport.

    1. Wake up in a one room apartment with 9 other roommates.
    2. Watch Beat Street.
    3. Walk to the Bodega to buy a quarter water and rob the elderly Korean man that owns their apartment building .
    4. Log into WS to using that same Korean's WiFi.
    5. Log off due to huge rats running around.
    6. Go down to subway station to tag trains and break dance for money.
    7. Listen to The Rapping Duke and break dance.
    8. Go up on the roof to feed pigeons.
    9. Open up a can of sardines for dinner.
    10. Watch Beat Street once again and cry at the end.
    11. Throw garbage out of the window and go sleep listening to Biz Markie.

    The UFC won't step foot in NY for a while. Been saying this for years.

    I saw this today and thought that it should be a good thing. However the corrupt political machine that runs NY consists of more than just Shelly Silver and is still very much in bed with the unions. So we will see.
