Brooklyn: Dazed and Confused

bkday_collins.jpg

not another f*cking blog! covers "Brooklyn Day," which by our count seems to have garnered more ridicule than positive coverage:

To me it seemed desperate, sad and pathetic. Bruce Ratner didn't even show up. I guess he knew how lame it was going to be.

If Forest City Ratner hadn't given away food and t-shirts, hadn't had the unions "ask" their members to take the day off and attend, hadn't had "supporters" bussed to the event, hadn't "invited" former and current ball players to stand on the steps behind the podium, and hadn't delegated his underlings to organize and coordinate the "celebration", the only ones who would have shown up were the people who happened to be going to one of the many government offices in the area, those heading to the green market (unrelated to the "rally"), and the media recording the charade for posterity.
