Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knuckleheads of the Day award

Today's winners are Scott and Suzanne Alenick. They get the award for the following.

July 21, 2006 -- A Manhattan judge has tossed out a lawsuit by a couple claiming they endured "humiliation, indignity, distress of mind and mental suffering" when they weren't able to have their daughter's bat mitzvah at The Plaza hotel.

Scott and Suzanne Alenick must come to terms with the fact that things change - like the renovations that scuttled daughter Ashley's dream coming-of-age celebration at the city landmark, Supreme Court Justice Herman Cahn wrote in a decision made public yesterday.

Although the hotel gave the family six months' notice and repaid their $12,000 deposit on the planned $20,000 bash, the Alenicks claimed it "made no effort to compensate for the uniqueness of The Plaza."

The judge said their mental distress claims weren't legally viable, and also tossed their claim for "physical discomfort."
What a dumb lawsuit. I've stayed at the Plaza, its overrated. So think of the cancellation as a gift, Scott and Suzanne Alenick. While we're at it, here is today's Knucklehead of the day award.
