Round'em Up

Here are some Bronx-related stories we've rounded up you, our lovely readers, while trolling the interweb with our horse and lasso this fine morning:

Public Advocate Betsy Gotbaum calls on the City for immediate action regarding South Bronx swamp [Public Advocate's Corner] (BD Note: That's nice. We're happy that people are starting to see how outrageous this situation is... But if a Public Advocate falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? That's right, BoogieDowner's getting philosophical on yo ass - boo yeah! Simply put: Does anyone really care what Betsy has to say? Too bad this stinky swamp situation isn't in Jimmy Vacca's district - it would have been cleaned up year's ago.)

Tom Robbins roasts Espada, and we love it [Village Voice]

Hunts Point and Port Morris getting some stimulus funds to improve air quality and recreation

South Bronx nonprofit intervention program closing its doors due to lack of funding [Daily News]

All Hallows H.S. none too happy with impractical pitching machine the Yankees gifted them - they'd much rather have their ballfield back [Daily News]

The Silver Fox's column from yesterday... [Daily News]

'TimesTraveler' takes us back 100 years ago today the students at Manhattan College got all riled up and protested the expelling of a star pitcher who missed curfew... [New York Times] (BD Note: Ahhh, the good ol' days when the worst baseball players did was stay out a little too late...)
