From an article at nypost.com by Conor Skelding, edited by yours truly: “At least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY drivers licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021. That’s a 32% increase from the same period the prior year, when 25,370 made the move.”

Here’s another location Gothamites might consider: It’s Go Topless Jeep Weekend in Galveston, Texas. Cue the Glenn Campbell song. Photo from foxnews.com.

Standards? We don’t need no stinking standards. Headline from FN: “University of California agrees to nix SAT, ACT in admissions decisions in settlement with minority students.”

From an article at FN by Dom Calicchio, in my own words: In January Simon & Schuster canceled plans to release Senator Josh Hawley’s The Tyranny of Big Tech, linking him to the Capitol riot. The book was then picked up by Regnery, a conservative publishing house. This week Publishers Weekly lists it as #6 in non-fiction, and Amazon ranks it 15th. More than 20,000 copies have sold. Kudos to the Republican from Missouri.

It had a bit of the look of a mall at my weekend book nook, as a guy opened up shop nearby. It wasn’t competition, as each of us was selling completely different stuff. He had some great sneakers, only ten bucks. Alas, none were size ten-and-a-half. I bought a T-shirt for a dollar. My thanks, and also to the gentleman and woman who purchased three Russian books each; and to the elderly woman who chose Michael Crichton’s Sphere; and to the guy who asked for non-fiction on war, which I didn’t have, and who selected four DVDs on the theme; and to the affable fellow who took home The Blues Brothers (1980); and to the the man who dropped off some medical related material; and to the one who brought more kids books.
