- As of now, all "internets" and "inter-tubes" jokes are banned from this site.
Y'all know about Google's whole "Extreme Makeover of Your Town's Internet Speed
" project, right? Yeah, we could all use faster internet, for free. Well, Greenpoint Assemblyman Joe Lentol is prepared to dive into
the polluted waters of potential superfund site
Newtown Creek in a desperate act of magical thinking ("If I suffer, they have to give my district THE INTERNET SPEEDS...") that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, beyond sheer, naked publicity.
This whole thing seems like a giant vortex of terrible reality television, which I suppose is really just the state of Current Life in America. But hey, you go, 67-year-old Joe Lentol, high-speed broadband is totally worth your life.
