Knowing no shame

By PHILLIPE AND JORGE  |  June 16, 2010


And now, a note on the debate over whether to rename the “Jewelry District” the “Knowledge District,” as high-tech development looms with the destruction of parts of the old Route 195.

When the late, lamented Leo’s opened, with the original Met Café across the street, the area — which still housed some of the old jewelry manufacturers — was officially dubbed ProHo by the hipsters, intellects, artists, and monster raving loonies that visited the two legendary bars. So let’s drop the debate and simply call it that from now on, ’kay, boys and girls?


Watery chums of Phillipe and Jorge inform us that an eight-foot great white shark was recently discovered in one of the fishing nets off of Galilee, an event which escaped notice of any media we encountered. Before you panic and grab your kids screaming from the nearby waters, we are informed that it is not an unknown occurrence at this time of year as the sharks migrate. But go ahead and overreact anyway. This has been a pretty boring June. Sharks beat an oil spill, at any rate.
