- NY Times needs to come clean on wiretap headline
By John Crudele - Thursday Sep 7, 2017
The Justice Department announced this week that there was no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped, as President Trump alleged. OK, that almost settles the issue. I’m still waiting for the New York Times — the self-proclaimed “paper of record” — to explain its Jan. 20 front page story that had the headline “Wiretapped Data...

- NYC's long war on storefront porn reaches new tipping point
By VERENA DOBNIK, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 6, 2017
NEW YORK (AP) — A dwindling number of peep shows, strip clubs and adult DVD stores have survived New York City's two-decade legal war on smut and now, some of the survivors are worried a recent court decision could put them under for good.In June, New York's Court of Appeals reinstated rules dating to 2001 barring any establishment with "live performances characterized by an emphasis on certain specified anatomical areas or specified sexual activities" as well as sexually explicit videos from all but carefully selected city zones.In a statement, the New York City Law Department said it believed the city's approach to regulating the businesses was "reasonable and lawful to protect our quality of life" and were intended to stem "the widespread circumvention of zoning regulations."New York's well-known efforts to clean up its once booming pornography industry began in the mid-1990s, with regulations barring adult businesses from operating near churches or schools and in most commercial and residential neighborhoods.Sex gadgets and steamy videos filled walls and aisles last week, alongside single-occupancy peep booths that are often empty in an age of internet pornography.Outside on West 50th Street, their store sign shines bright next to a boutique hotel, just steps from the Gershwin Theatre, where tourists flock daily to see Broadway's "Wicked."

- Nearly 2 tons of seized ivory to be crushed in Central Park
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Nearly two tons of trinkets, statues and jewelry crafted from the tusks of at least 100 slaughtered elephants are heading for a rock crusher in New York City's Central Park to demonstrate the state's commitment to smashing the illegal ivory trade.[...] state environmental officials, who are partnering with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Tiffany & Co. for Thursday's "Ivory Crush," say no price justifies slaughtering elephants for their tusks.Last year, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service instituted a near-total ban on the domestic commercial ivory trade and barred sales across state lines.Since August 2014, New York law has prohibited the sale, purchase, trade or distribution of anything made from elephant or mammoth ivory or rhinoceros horn, except in limited situations with state approval.The World Wildlife Fund says the illegal wildlife trade not only threatens animal populations, but also endangers national security by funding terrorist cells.
