Read my post earlier mentioning Michael Moore and what I would discuss with him if I had an opportunity to chat. I stopped in St. Marks Bookstore and purchased a copy from the owner.
I am off to celebrate The Jewish New Year. La Shana Tova so no book signing tonight at St. Marks. It is great that Michael is doing this to help the book store that now faces 20,000.00 a month rent. Cooper Union is NYU jr. Read my post.
I was not a Michael Moore fan but after dealing with having my entire YouTube Channel removed before the mayoral election where 6 months prior I predicted Mike may not win do to voter anger I began to warm to Moore's work.
I bought the book and am enjoying the read as I travel on luxurious public transportation...
Suzannah B. Troy NYC Round-Up: Michael Moore St. Marks Book St. Tonight! Big Time White Collar Crime, Mayor Bloomberg Lies, Where He Flies None of Your Biz

We have an unexpected update: Michael Moore will be at the bookstore tomorrow, Thursday at 7 pm to sign his new exciting book "Here Comes Trouble."
Yesterday the Public Affairs Office at Cooper Union, the St. Mark's Bookshop's landlord, sent out a letter saying Cooper Union's Board was asking its Finance and Business Affairs Committee to examine the request to lower the bookstore's rent from its current $20,000 a month. The outcome will be announced at the end of October.
We believe that Cooper Union is stonewalling this issue, hoping our community will forget about the bookstore. We need you to send this petition out to all of your friends and family today. Help us reach 50,000 signatures by the middle of October.

Mike Bloomberg, Even Paris Hilton Couldn’t Spend 1.1 Mill on your campaign in 24 hours so why did you wire money to Haggerty

As some of you may have seen, the Mayor's office has recently been sending a canned response to our requests for assistance with preventing the development of Ruppert Playground. The Mayor's form response (see copy below) is simply unacceptable. Please contact the Mayor's office as soon as you can via both phone (311) and on-line email to let them know that they must do more than just be "bringing this issue to [Related's] attention." They must be proactive and explore real alternatives with Related, for example, reasonable tax credits for Related, a land swap or another equivalent exchange with the City.
It is imperative that even if you have reached out to the Mayor's office already that you contact them again asking for them to do more as the Mayor is in the best position to actually save Ruppert Playground despite their 'pass the buck' stance below.
To submit a message to the Office of the Mayor on-line, you may use the webform at http://www.nyc.gov/html/mail/html/mayor.html
