Here's what's up with "what's up Chuck"

Two mea culpas in one day has gotta be some kind of blogger record.

The "Chuck" that a Yonkers activist forwarded to NoLandGrab, which we posted earlier in the day, wasn't any sort of Ratner-kin. It was Chuck Lesnick, Yonker's City Council President (though, eerily, he could crash a Ratner family reunion).

So you may be wondering, does Brooklyn care?

Sure, Brooklyn cares if Yonkers gets a fair shake while the city considers the effects of Bruce Ratner's Ridge Hill proposal. But, to set the facts straight, Chuck Lesnick will not have a vote on the Atlantic Yards project... then again, neither will our own City Council.
