Lock Up Your Daughters! Is the World Ready for Taki Jr.?
New York Observer
.....John-Taki Theodoracopulos—J.T. to his friends—is a bike messenger and an as-of-yet-undiscovered artist. He lives alone in a townhouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

State Looking At Ways To Improve Truck Safety
Officials know how to improve truck safety in Connecticut.
They didn't need a recent study by an academy of engineers to confirm that high-tech scales and in-truck, EZ-Pass-like transponders already in use at the Union weigh station for companies with good safety records would, if their use were expanded to the state's five other stations, ease congestion — especially at the antiquated Greenwich station.The officials also know that the technology could allow them to zero in on trucks that require more detailed inspections and for a more random weigh-station schedule. That would make it less likely that rogue truckers who communicate by CB and iPhone would take to the back roads and skirt the stations.
