I do know that. My thinking was more: if someone could use a couch and doesn’t mind patching it in two places, it’s perfectly fine, especially if you’ve got no place else to sit. But if that’s the general idea - that something is more useful in a landfill - then we are more than ready to chuck it.

Wow, lovely opinion you’ve got there. For the record, we’re perfectly willing to chuck it and got quotes for disposal, but given it’s structurally sound, wanted to see if doing a mitzvah was an option. I see that strains credibility for you and I’m sorry about that.

To each their own. I like Zoolights because it’s fun to walk around in the cold, drink some warm alcoholic beverage, and socialize with the people with whom I attend. Also, it’s free.

I’ve always found going out on New Year’s Eve a subpar experience, but I get why other folks enjoy it. I think a lot of bridge and tunnel folk get scammed with the big NYE parties downtown, though, which sucks.

These stories just make you despair of humanity.

My friend’s much-loved young son died in his sleep last week and his memorial was one of the most wrenching events I’ve ever attended; tiny coffin, everyone sobbing. I just cannot imagine what would drive someone to physically abuse and essentially kill a baby.
