USA vs ALI?

Issue

On this date and back in 1964, the person who called himself the greatest, but actually proved it became a boxing legend.

Muhammad Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, won his first heavyweight belt by knocking out Sonny Liston.

Over 50 years later, his 44-year-old was coming home from a trip to Jamaica with his mom, the former wife of the late boxing icon when the two were stopped by officials at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Eastside NYC Food Fright

Restaurant

The wild west has apparently moved into a quiet and unassuming east side neighborhood.
City Island is a small and use to be a relatively safe and quiet island in New York City, which is just a mile and a half long and a half mile wide.

The following video clips you are about to see were taken at a local City Island, NY eatery. A food fight turned into a violent brawl, which quickly got out of hand in an NYC neighborhood not normally know for this type of activity.

WH vs FBI

Problem

The FBI recently rebuffed White House to publicly reject media claims of contacts between Trump’s campaign and Russian intelligence officials.

Contact between administration and bureau violated limitations on communications pertaining to ongoing probes.

Official: Reince Priebus asked FBI to dispute reports that Trump's campaign advisers were in touch with Russia. http://apne.ws/2mjhGH9

Writing and Wrongings

Solution

Blogs like #CITYIMAGES not only provide multiple viewpoints about pleasant issues and adversity but allow for public comments as long as they do not cross the line of civility.

Humans evolved to notice sounds, smells, to appreciate smiles or the body language of a potential friend or foe. We adapt to conditions and learn and to do all of the things necessary for survival. We enjoy the arts, and music because rhythm and melodies have been the methods we have communicated over long distances.

Administration Anger

Idea

Some so-called GOP leaders are staying away from town halls in fear of their constituents, who are angry as hell.

Republicans who rode a wave of Tea Party discontent at town halls are now skipping them to avoid giving local citizens the opportunity to strike back with the same tactics they used.

Protesters insists that it's not only about the US economy, but healthcare, and natural resources, but also about human rights.

JOURNALIST MEA CULPA

Other

On February 17, President Trump tweeted that “the fake news media” was “not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

The controversy the president ignited is still raging but, the press can cite Jefferson, John Adams and Hamilton as strong supporters of the press as a check on government institutions. No doubt they didn’t think the press was an “enemy of the people.”

Yet there are aspects of the political scene today that make one hesitant to praise the press too highly.

Immigration Dragnet

Problem

Some call it a long awaited solution, but others see it as a growing problem for a nation built by immigrants.

Detaining and beginning to deport any undocumented immigrant is going to be a huge task. It should be concentrated on those who continue to committing criminal acts.

However, the essence of two new Department of Homeland Security directives, which include among priority targets anyone suspected of a crime. Homeland Security unveils sweeping plan to deport undocumented immigrants http://usat.ly/2m4dAWs

Your tired, poor, huddled masses...

Announcement

Someone hung a banner on Lady Liberty. It said "Refugees Welcome"

"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
