Things That Make You Go Hmmmmm....
Did you hear the one about Moammar Gaddafi and how he wanted to camp out in Central Park? Ya, it's a true story. He's coming to town later this month to attend some kind of U.N. summit and wanted to pitch his Bedouin tent in Central Park. Can you imagine? Then again, the New Yorkers would probably just shrug and think it was another Christo sculpture, or another fashion week event. Anyway, Bloomberg wouldn't let him, so the erstwhile terrorist dictator decided to go crash in a posh pad he owns over in Jersey (and doesn't pay taxes on, what?), but the Jersey folks scared him off with protests all weekend, and he changed his mind. Last I heard he's got reservations at some Manhattan hotel. Probably Gramercy Park, or someplace where keffiyeh-wearing hipsters will make him feel right at home. It's a strange world we live in, but if the people of New Jersey are all it takes to scare a terrorist dictator away, I hope the army is full of people from New Jersey.
