Trousers and Hot TubsI won't link to the original source because there's some arguably not safe for work stuff there, but the website sportsimproper.com has Brian McNamee making the whole Clemens affair sound even seedier than it already did:
One of the needles I gave the government was used to inject Clemens with steroids in either July or August of 2001," McNamee was quoted as saying by sportsimproper.com in an item posted Wednesday. "The place was his high-rise apartment, which is located off the corner of 90th Street and First Avenue in Manhattan.
Can someone please put a gag order on everyone who has ever been within 15 feet of Roger Clemens? Because I really don't think I can handle much more of this.

J. McCann: You are referring to the Board of Estimate, under which each borough president received one vote. Seeing as the boroughs have vastly different populations (Brooklyn, the most populated, has about 2.5m people, Staten Island, the least, has about 500k), the body was ruled unconstitutional for violating the principle of proportional representation. I have no qualm with that in and of itself, but it’s kind of ironic that the Senate - an established constitutional body - does exactly the same thing. Wyoming has two senators, and a population roughly equal to that of Staten Island.
Melody: Queens is the only borough where they do that - address mail to “Astoria, NY” or “Flushing, NY,” etc. It’s always perplexed me, and I’ve never known why. Though Manhattan and the Bronx both use county names for mail (New York, NY; Bronx, NY), and SI and Brooklyn use boroughs (Staten Island, NY; Brooklyn, NY). Now that I think of it, that’s pretty weird, too.
OK, I’m having WAY too much fun talking about New York minutae. I should get back to work (and stop boring people).
