Yassky Can

On Tuesday evening, New York City Councilmember David Yassky basked in the applause at an election-night party near Times Square to celebrate his second-place finish behind fellow Councilmember John Liu in the Democratic primary for Comptroller.

With 100 percent of the vote counted, unofficial results showed that Mr. Liu had captured 38 percent of the vote, just short of the 40 percent he needed to win outright. Mr. Yassky took 30 percent, and Councilwoman Melinda R. Katz of Queens finished third, with 20 percent. David I. Weprin, a councilman from Queens, was fourth.

Yassky and Liu will face each other in a run-off to be held September 29th.

The Timberman

Controlled chaos, kneed heads and other slippage reign in the wetsuit stripping area a the Timberman Half-Ironman Triathlon, Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, August 23rd.

Some random guy who happened to land in the focus of my panning preparation for Karen. Unfortunately, his shot was much better.

Dominating around the turn of her first six plus mile loop, my sister Karen.

And that's what it feels like to finish that race in heat and humidity. An hour and two IV bags later, everyone was back to normal.
