^^Sorry... he will be 29, the 2 things he's told me he would like are: a new iPhone (that's allegedly coming out next week, but he just got an iPhone so I won't get him a new one), and either a PS3 or a Wii... and I really hate video games. I'd like to spend no more that $500. [ Reply | More ]

If he just got an iPhone, not sure if you want to hold out for the new one so soon. (and I love my iPhone). If you don't care for video games don't buy him PS3 and Wii, especially if you will be having a new baby soon. I like to give an experience rather than an object. Weekend trip, fabulous dinner/sporting event/show/concert etc. [ Reply | More ]

Turn off friggin' Times Square after 10pm or so. There is absolutely no need to keep that running all night through. Charge more for electricity (especially for businesses). Keep the cars out of the city. Improve mass transit. Build those new tunnels for increased capacity. Bring the jobs closer to home. Discourage workers from commuting in the first place.
