Unemployment Blues

Some background: I have been convicted (a very serious word indeed) of unemployment fraud, for underreporting part-time employment. The underreported amount was ... one dollar. I have been appealing, unsuccessfully, for six months.

Mayor Bloomberg evicting protesters?

You know, for park cleanup. Not for anything political or anything.

Occupy Wall Street demonstrators in Zuccotti Park have got to get out tomorrow morning. The billionaire mayor went to the park to deliver the news.

According to this notice, maintenance crews will be cleaning the park in thirds. While one-third is being cleaned, the other two will remain open, and it should take four hours to clean each section.

That sounds like it should ultimately affect the protesters only a little, but tacked on to the notice is a list of appropriate uses of the privately owned park.

Prohibited activities include:

Camping, erecting tents

Laying down on the ground, benches, sitting areas or walkways

Spreading tarps and sleeping bags

Storing personal property

Using bikes, skateboards and roller blades

Taking things out of the trash cans

MoveOn’s got a petition going to stop the eviction.

The protest began at the U.S. Bank across from the mini APD substation in Nob Hill, but after police cars blocked the road, marchers decided to move so they would be more visible. Officers followed the demonstrators as they walked east from Dartmouth and blocked off every intersection they came to.

Eco-friendly living for the working class

We got curious about one of the bonds on the ballot. (No, not No. 12, which handcuffs millions for the Paseo interchange to millions for a sportsplex.)

We were interested in “No. 10: Affordable Housing” that kicks $10 million to workforce housing, homes for working families and inexpensive rental properties for senior citizens.

Read Carolyn Carlson’s report on the developments that come out of this money.
