Admit it — you’ve always pictured yourself sitting behind a huge stainless steel desk laughing maniacally about your threats to blow up the world unless $10 billion is delivered to you in the next four hours. Well, here’s the chair you’ll be sitting in. The aptly named Villain Chair ($6,800) is an oversize, futuristic chair made of leather, chrome, steel and aluminum — the hallmarks of an evil villain’s office chair.

Spends 2.3 Million on lotto tickets August 25, 2006

This might be the craziest story you’ll hear all week: A modest wife and mother of three who worked as a bookkeeper ended up embezzling $2.3 million from her job for her scratch-off Lotto habit. Oh, yes: Long Island resident Annie Donnelly would spend up to $6,000 a day on Lotto tickets at a local card store while siphoning money from the medical practice she worked at. Donnelly started small, taking $41,261 in 2002; in 2003, she took $225,482; in 2004, she took $675,247; and last year, she took $1,381,927 – all by writing small checks and moving around money in the accounts. The Suffolk County DA’s office doesn’t think she won more than $100,000 in the three and a half years she was playing, and now, she faces jail and will have to pay back all the money – her family has to sell their $375,000 house.

Donnelly’s husband, who never noticed there was a problem – she never talked about her habit and bills were paid, so there – and still loves her, is mad at the cardstore for letting his wife buy $6,000 in Lotto tickets, which made her the bigest revenue generator for the whole store: “They didn’t wonder how a housewife could spend that much every day?” The store’s clerk thought Donnelly had already won a jackpot, based on the way she was spending, and told the NY Times, “When we would ask questions, she would say, ‘What’s your problem? Why are you asking these questions?’ … I did think why doesn’t her husband say something?”

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin mentions the lack of development at Ground Zero August 25, 2006

Oh, SNAP! In year-after-Katrina interview with 60 Minutes, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin mentions the lack of development at Ground Zero when pressed by reporter Byron Pitts about post-Katrina New Orleans progress. And it’s an effective smack to city and state officials. Here’s how the CBS News site explains the exchange:

On a tour of the decimated Ninth Ward, Nagin tells Pitts the city has removed most of the debris from public property and it’s mainly private land that’s still affected – areas that can’t be cleaned without the owners’ permission. But when Pitts points to flood-damaged cars in the street and a house washed partially into the street, the mayor shoots back. “That’s alright. You guys in New York can’t get a hole in the ground fixed and it’s five years later. So let’s be fair.”

You know, in spite of all the problems with contracts to rebuild New Orleans and their bureaucratic problems, the man’s gotta point. If you watch the video clip, Pitts’ reaction is of either disbelief, acknowledgement, or nervous smile. Lower Manhattan Development Corporation head Kevin Rampe, though, took offense at the remark and issued a statement emphasizing the “tremendous progress” made, “We understand how difficult rebuilding a city after such destruction can be.” Of course, the two situations aren’t exactly apples to apples but one thing common to both: Nothing will happen quickly and the government officials will inevitably slow and foul things up.

Stole 2 Million $4.50 at a time from the Queens Midtown Tunnel August 24, 2006

A man working a toll booth at the Queens Midtown Tunnel was taking his own special toll according to Queens DA. Robert Applegate of Woodside was charged with grand larceny for stealing $2,077.21 in toll money while on the job (tolls are $4.50 for cars). How was he found out? MTA compared the number of cars that went through his toll booth with what he collected! Applegate was fired yesterday and MTA told amNew York that he was a temporary worker. Naturally, the Queens DA accused him of “highway robbery.”
