DEFAULT TONIGHT

News

Once the clock strikes midnight, there is a bad possibility that US may meet with economic chaos and cause a global disaster.

Thursday morning at 12:01a US will be left standing at the precipice because US House of Representatives has abandoned a vote that would have avoided default.

After midnight, there will be no more borrowed cash left to pay the nation’s bills.

The US Treasury warns that failure to raise the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt limit threatens a US credit default that may trigger a global economic crisis.

RAT ISLAND... W/O RATS

Attraction

Does everyone know that NYC has a Rat Island? It is near City Island, but not home to a huge colony of super-rodents.

It was purchased from Native Americans in 1654 by the Pell family, the island’s name may have come from the inmates who were then jailed on nearby Hart Island. Back then, inmates were nicknamed rats. If they were lucky enough to escape, they swam to Rat Island first before making a go at nearby City Island.

In the 1800s, it was the location of the Pelham Pesthouse, a yellow fever hospital that quarantined 40 people.

MAX MONDAYS

Attraction

The quintessential New York musician, Max Weinberg needs little introduction. From his initial performance with Blackstone, his longtime para-diddles with Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band to his role as Conan O'Brien's beloved bandleader, the published author of "The Big Beat", Conversations with Rock's Great Drummers. He is one of the best rhythm-keepers and swing-starters ever, and his love for music, both classic and new, keeps him relevant and always moving forward. I have known this old man since way back when.
