Nearly 1,000 city schoolbus drivers and escorts
were disciplined in 2015 —
a number that has skyrocketed in recent years,
according to records the
DOE took 20 months to
produce, and only after The
Post sued for them. One
driver dropped his pants,
while another urinated in a

Spending a lot of time
driving may actually put
your brain in reverse.
A new British study found
that spending more than
two hours a day behind the
wheel steadily lowers IQ ,
especially in middle-aged
drivers, according to the
Sunday Times of London.
Driving is physically and
mentally sedentary and can
cause stress and fatigue, all
factors in brain decline, experts told the newspaper.
“Staying mentally and
physically active helps keep
our brains healthy, so it is not
surprising,” researcher Rosa
Sancho said. Laura Italiano

It’s the Drag-erwocky!
The 2018 Pirelli Calendar is still months away from being released, but new behind-the-scene photos reveal an “Alice in
Wonderland” theme featuring all black models.
Among this year’s docket of decked-out celebs is “Drag
Race” host RuPaul as the loud-and-proud Queen of Hearts
and Sean “Diddy” Combs as the Royal Beheader.
The calendar — shot this year by Tim Walker (below), who
was captured in action by Alessandro Scotti — has been produced by the Italian tiremaker since 1963 and has long showcased bikini-clad beauties. Lately, however, the publication
has changed its focus to fashion.
Edward Enninful, the new editor of British Vogue, is in
charge of Pirelli for the first time this year. Johnny Oleksinski

The French are furious
over a new historical movie
that, they say, diminishes
their country’s role in a
World War II evacuation.
“Dunkirk,” the Christopher Nolan-directed film
that hit theaters last week,
shows a “scathing rudeness
[and] deplorable indifference” toward France for its
role in the Dunkirk evacuation of 1940, said a blistering review in the French
newspaper Le Monde.
“Where in the film are the

from
Dunkirk?”

40,000 who sacrificed
themselves to defend the

But British journalist, editor and author Max Hastings defended “Dunkirk”
“The French will have to
make their own film if they
want their national story
properly told,” he told the
Times of London.

Russia-sanction clash
Push in Congress to defy Trump, slap Vlad
By MARY KAY LINGE
Congressional
negotiators
from both parties agreed Saturday on a bill to punish Moscow
for meddling in the US presidential election and for its military
aggression in Ukraine and Syria.
The agreement comes as the
team of investigators led by special counsel Robert Mueller circles closer around former
Trump campaign manager Paul
Manafort, according to Reuters.
Mueller’s team is hoping to
develop
money-laundering
charges against Manafort in order to flip him into cooperating
with their probe into possible
collusion between Russian operatives and the Trump campaign, the wire service reported,
citing two sources.
Saturday’s surprise bipartisan
measure would handcuff President Trump’s ability to ease
Russian sanctions on his own.
Trump would have to explain
to Congress why he wants to
ease sanctions. Lawmakers
would then have 30 days to allow or reject the move.
“Given the many transgressions of Russia, and President
Trump’s seeming inability to deal
with them, a strong sanctions bill
such as the one Democrats and
Republicans have just agreed to
is essential,” said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
O’Care overhaul hits new roadblock
Senate Republicans face a
new hurdle in the push to
undo ObamaCare.
Key components of the GOP
repeal-and-replace bill cannot
be passed under special reconciliation rules reserved for
votes on budget measures.
The items — including federal funding for Planned Parenthood and a six-month
waiting period for people
who drop their coverage —
are not budgetary in nature
and thus cannot pass with just
50 votes, the Senate parliamentarian ruled Friday.
That means the items —
must-haves for conservatives
— would need 60 votes to
pass in the closely divided
Senate.
Mary Kay Linge
The review requirement is
based on GOP-sponsored 2015
legislation to give Congress a
vote on whether then-President
Barack Obama could lift sanctions against Iran. That law reflected Republican complaints
that Obama had overstepped constitutional limits to put the Iran
nuclear agreement into place
without the Senate’s consent.
The Russia sanctions bill
cleared the Senate in June on a
98-2 vote but stalled in the
House. The House will vote on
it Tuesday.
The measure would put into
law the Russia sanctions Obama
established by executive order,
add sanctions on mining and
other industries, and target Russians charged with cyberattacks
or with supplying weapons to

Newly
minted
White
House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci
proved his loyalty to President Trump with some Twitter housecleaning Saturday.
“Full transparency: I’m deleting old tweets,” the former Trump foe posted. “Past
views evolved & shouldn’t
be a distraction. I serve
@POTUS agenda & that’s all
that matters.”
Scaramucci, an early Twitter adopter, slammed Trump
regularly during the bruising
Republican primary fight.
His new boss is inclined to
forgive and forget.
“In all fairness to Anthony
Scaramucci, he wanted to
endorse me 1st, before the

started, but didn’t think I
was
running!”

tweeted Saturday.
Scaramucci is set to do battle on behalf of Trump. He
told Breitbart News that
Trump is “on missile lock” to
keep his promise to put a
wall on the Mexican border.
Scaramucci was spotted
Friday evening at a highschool graduation party for
his son Anthony Jr. at Midtown’s Hunt & Fish Club
steakhouse, which he coowns.
Scaramucci spared no expense in the celebration. He
hired DJ Clue to spin and
French Montana to perform
for Anthony Jr. and 50 of his
friends.

Claim: I called out favor$, got Blas ax
A former deputy commissioner
plans to sue the city for $5 million,
saying he was fired for complaining
about two of Mayor de Blasio’s biggest
City Hall controversies — the lifting
of deed restrictions for Lower East
Side nursing home Rivington House
and the granting of city favors to mayoral contributor Harendra Singh.
As head of the Department of
Citywide Administration Services, ex-deputy Ricardo Morales
had been responsible for collecting nearly $750,000 in rent Singh
owed the city for Water’s Edge,
Singh’s restaurant on municipal
property in Queens.
According to a notice of claim
filed with the city Comptroller’s
Office, in firing Morales this past
February, the city “unlawfully retaliat[ed]” against Morales because he complained after City
Hall intervened on behalf of the
foundering restaurant.
The firing was also retaliation
for Morales’ objections to “City
Hall’s lack of truthfulness regarding the lifting of Deed restrictions on Rivington House,”
the claim notice says.
Lifting the restriction allowed the
property’s new owner, Allure Group,
to flip it — at a $72 million profit
—to a luxury condo developer.
The mayor was cleared of
wrongdoing in a federal probe;
City Hall did not respond to a request for comment Saturday night.

Yellow hell: 945 bus
workers disciplined
By SUSAN EDELMAN
Nearly 1,000 city schoolbus drivers and escorts
were suspended or fired
for misbehavior in 2015 —
an alarming number that
has skyrocketed in recent
years, records show.
One driver was seen
dropping his pants outside
a school, twice in one day.
Another urinated in a bottle on a bus with a child
aboard because he had a
“bladder and bowel condition.”
One carried Coors Light;
another reeked of pot. One
denied dozing at the wheel
but was caught on video
by frightened attendants.
The city Department of
Education listed 760 disciplined drivers and 185 errant escorts. The vast majority were removed without pay for a few days to
six months — but then allowed to return.
The DOE said 186 cases
involved harm or danger
to kids, including reckless
driving, leaving children
alone or dropping them off
unattended or with strangers. In one case, a child got
off a bus and went missing
all night. He was found the
next morning at Kings
County Hospital.
Only 23 drivers and
seven matrons were fired.
Others were arrested for
DWI or other crimes.
Among the escorts, one
grabbed a child’s head and
“began to shake it back
and forth.” One didn’t spot
a student forcing another
into oral sex. One kicked a
special-ed student and
called the child a “motherf--ker.”
The city contracts with
bus companies to transport 150,000 children to
and from public and private schools, spending
$1.1 billion a year. The
companies hire some
12,000 drivers, escorts and
mechanics, but the DOE’s
Office of Pupil Transportation probes complaints
and imposes penalties.
The DOE took 20
months to release the 2015
disciplinary records, and
only after The Post filed a
lawsuit under the Freedom
of Information Law.
Scores of horror stories
in the records include:

Getting
lost:
One
driver rode around for
four hours without notifying anyone. The kids on
the bus were found
“sweating, dehydrated and
begging for water.” He was
suspended nine days.

Injuries: A driver left a
child at the bus stop bleeding from the head. His
shocked parent took him
to the hospital for stitches.
The driver was fired.

student called his parents
to report the bus “driving

out a back door. Kids suffered back pain and
scrapes. The driver was
suspended for 10 days.

Warnings
ignored:
When kids cried out that a
driver was speeding, “he
laughs.” The same driver
smoked cigarettes and
stopped at McDonald’s,
with the engine running.
Suspension: 90 days.

Carelessness: An escort did not secure a disabled child who “fell on
his head” while being
taken off the bus. The
driver left a message with
his company and took off.
Both were suspended for
60 days.

Rudeness: A driver
“humiliated” the mother of
a disabled child who urinated on the bus, telling
her the fluid could have
started an electrical fire
and advising that her 14year-old son wear diapers.
Suspension: 5 days.
The 945 drivers and escorts suspended or fired in
just 12 months, between
Dec. 1, 2014 and Dec. 2,
2015, dwarfs the 1,300 disciplined over five years,
between 2008 and 2012.
Sara Catalinotto, a Man-
hattan mom who founded
Parents to Improve School
Transportation
(PIST),
isn’t shocked.
She blamed a 2013 decision by the Bloomberg administration to eliminate
job protections for bus
drivers, a move that
sparked a monthlong
strike. The change curbed
contract costs but led to an
influx of lower-paid, lessqualified workers. “What
they’re doing to save
money ends up hurting the
kids,” Catalinotto said.
“You get what you pay for.”

KEEP THE
DOCTOR
AWAY!
‘FLUB’ MED:
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum (right, at
home last week)
is under fire for
patient deaths,
including that of
Roberto
Diaz
(inset left).
By MELISSA KLEIN
The head of orthopedic surgery
at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital has his
chart full: Four of his patients have
died since 2008 and he’s racked up
10 malpractice suits during his career, records reviewed by The
Post show.
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, 60, was
brought on to head the department in 2008, despite his lessthan-stellar record, in an attempt
to boost the medical center’s number of lucrative hip and knee replacements, sources said.
Three weeks after Kirschenbaum arrived, Osciena Chester, a
57-year-old Bronx resident with
diabetes and kidney disease, was
admitted with a dislocated hip in
need of surgery.
The doctor delayed doing the
procedure for 14 days and never
saw his patient after the April 1,
2008, operation despite her suffering complications, including an infected ulcer on her foot, according
to a complaint made to the state
about Kirschenbaum’s treatment
of Chester and six other patients.
The ulcer grew worse “because
the patient could not be mobilized
due to the absence of information
regarding wound management
and weight bearing from Dr.
Kirschenbaum,” the complaint
says. Chester died on May 7, 2008.
Two more of Kirschenbaum’s
patients died within the next
month, and by the beginning of
October 2008 there was a fourth
— an alarming pattern that
prompted complaints not only to
the state but to hospital officials,
sources told The Post.
But Bronx-Lebanon took no action against Kirschenbaum.
In fact, it hired him despite the
fact that he had three malpractice
settlements against him, one
closed case and two more pending
suits. He was recruited by hospital
president Miguel Fuentes over the

Bx. hosp surgeon’s troubling record

Golf-club
‘slave’ suit
7
objections of the chief of surgery,
who was not allowed to vet him.
“I told Fuentes I could not sign
off on a surgeon I didn’t even meet
and had no idea how safe he was,”
Dr. John Cosgrove, who left BronxLebanon in 2013, told The Post.
Three Bronx-Lebanon patients,
along with a patient from another
hospital, have since sued and he
has continued to generate complaints about his care.
Seven hospital staffers recently
sent an anonymous letter to a state
medical disciplinary panel, a copy
of which was sent to The Post,
about Kirschenbaum’s allegedly
poor patient care.
Yet Bronx-Lebanon continues to
stand by the $1-million-a-year surgeon. The hospital’s lawyer called
him “a respected member of the
medical staff.”
One of his patients, Frank Vega
of The Bronx, tells a different
story, according to a malpractice
suit filed earlier this year. He was
left with a joint that would not
move after 2014 knee-replacement
surgery, according to his lawyer.
“He couldn’t bend his knee at all
even with therapy,” lawyer Giulio
Frasciello said.
Two operations Kirschenbaum
did in 1997 prompted his first mal-
practice suits. A hip surgery allegedly resulted in the patient’s legs
being different lengths and a knee
replacement allegedly caused an infection. The hip case was settled in
2004 for $115,000 and the knee suit
in 2002 for $7,500, according to insurance records seen by The Post.
A suit over a botched 2001 knee
replacement was settled for
$250,000 in 2006, records show.
State law requires doctors to report malpractice settlements to
the Health Department. If there
are at least three malpractice settlements in the previous 10 years,
that will be noted on the doctor’s
profile page on the DOH Web site.
But a screenshot of Kirschenbaum’s online DOH profile from
2008 obtained by The Post does
not show any malpractice settlements. DOH would not comment
on the apparent lapse.
Kirschenbaum came to a hospital that treats mostly poor patients
and receives most of its funding
from Medicaid. Yet executives are
often paid fat bonuses. In his first
full year at Bronx-Lebanon, in
2009, his bonus came to $275,000.
Shortly after taking over as orthopedics chairman, Kirschenbaum
began a study of bone infections in
patients, documents show. The
study would involve taking bone
biopsies — which could be charged
as separate surgical procedures —
but Kirschenbaum did not get the
required approval from the hospital’s research review board, according to the complaint to the state.
The complaint also notes that
Kirschenbaum treated 77-year-old
Roberto Diaz, who broke his thigh
bone on May 20, 2008. Diaz died
on June 10, 2008, due to complications from an intestinal infection,
according to his family.
Kirschenbaum previously told
The Post that the state Office of
Professional Medical Conduct had
looked into the deaths and found
no wrongdoing. He said the patients had been sick with other
conditions.
When asked previously about
three pending malpractice suits
against him, he said, “In the last 30
years, that’s pretty good.” He did
not mention the other cases.
Last week, Kirschenbaum denied that he had failed to visit patients after operating on them. He
referred further comment to the
hospital’s spokesman.
Neither the spokesman nor the
hospital’s lawyer returned requests for comment.

SAND TRAPS LOOM
FOR
O.J.
IN
FLA.
Troubled history with Sunshine State
Family & pals open their doors to him
By JASON KERSTEN
“When the prison doors are
open, the real dragon will fly out,”
Ho Chi Minh once said.
After serving nine years behind
bars for a 2007 armed robbery at a
Las Vegas casino hotel, the prison
doors are finally opening for
Orenthal James “O.J.” Simpson.
On Thursday, a Nevada corrections board unanimously granted
O.J. parole. He is expected to walk
free as early as Oct. 1. And just like
it did after his 1995 “Trial of the
Century” acquittal for the horrific
murders of his ex-wife Nicole
Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the world is once again asking: What will life be like for a man
so many believe got away with
murder?
The answer, once again, seems
to be in Florida.
During his parole hearing, the
former football great indicated he
wished to return to the state that is
home to his two children with Nicole. He first moved there in 1999,
after losing a $33 million civil suit
filed by Goldman’s parents. State
law guarantees that the Goldmans
cannot confiscate properties he
owns there, nor can they get to any
of the $25,000 a month he gets as
part of his NFL pension. The onetime B-movie actor also reportedly
has a small pension from the
Screen Actors Guild.
O.J. will first have to ask Florida
for permission to live there, but
under the rules of the Interstate
Commission of Adult Offender Supervision, he is all but guaranteed
entry.
Once he arrives, on one level
O.J.’s life won’t be that much different from any other retiree in
the Sunshine State — or even
that much different than before.
He’ll bask in the sun, play golf
daily on myriad public courses
and hang out with his friends
(yes, O.J. still has plenty of them,
probably more than most).
“Tell them we’ll be playing golf
again soon,” Simpson reportedly
told his pal Tom Scotto, just days
before his parole hearing.
Where exactly he will be living
is still unclear. Scotto has suggested O.J. may temporarily live
with him in Miami before buying a
house of his own. Jeffery Felix, a
O.J.’s Florida crash pals
Between family and friends,
the Juice has no shortage of
potential housemates when
it comes to where he’ll spend
his first days of freedom.
Sydney and Justin Simpson,
his children with Nicole Brown
Simpson, are grown and live
around the corner from each
other in St. Petersburg.

O.J. also has roots in the
Miami area, where he lived
for eight years and once
owned a now-foreclosed
home. His oldest daughter,
Arnelle, lives in Miami, and
he also has an open invitation
to stay with longtime pal Tom
Scotto in Naples. And there’s
a potential wild-card roomie:
his old flame and party pal,
Christie Prody. She was
last reported to be living in
Fargo, ND, but there has been
speculation she may head
South now that the Juice is
loose.
retired prison guard who worked
at Lovelock Correctional Center
and befriended O.J., has said O.J.
mentioned living in St. Petersburg
with his youngest daughter, Sydney, 31, who works in real estate.
O.J.’s youngest son, Justin, 28, also
lives and works in that city.
O.J. won’t be moving back to the
sprawling, four-bedroom, fourbath ranch-style home he once
owned in Kendall, a Miami suburb.
The bank foreclosed on that property, and it was recently put up for
sale for $1.3 million.
Whether he winds up in St. Pete
on the Gulf Coast or back in his
old stomping grounds on the Atlantic side of South Florida, all indications are that the Juice wants
to go right back to the life he was
living before his 2008 arrest.
Depending on which dragon
comes out, that could be a real
problem.
Unlike the first time he moved
to Florida, this time O.J. will be
coming in as a convicted felon. For
the next five years, he’ll have to
keep his nose clean and report to a
parole officer, submitting himself
to random searches, as well as
drug and alcohol testing. He’ll also
have to surrender his passport.
That may immediately come
into conflict with his preconceived
notions of freedom. Prior to his
first parole hearing in 2013, O.J.
had some pretty grandiose ideas of
what he would do, telling friends
he wanted to be helicoptered out
of Lovelock prison, then eventually hide out in the Bahamas in order to avoid the media.
“It’s gonna be extremely hard
for him,” says one of O.J.’s Miami
acquaintances, Pedro Rosado, a

where O.J. would come at least
twice a week for breakfast after
dropping his kids off at school.
“No drinking, no messing around,
no partying, no drugs, no this, no
that. It’s extremely hard for anybody that comes out on parole.”
Rosado first met O.J. at his restaurant shortly after the former
football great moved to Florida. He
described O.J. as a “very nice person, very authentic. He was good
with my kids and wonderful with
my wait staff. I couldn’t say anything bad about him.” He would always show up to charities and
fund-raisers when asked, always
signed autographs, and often
showered fans with autograph
photos and mini-helmets.
He recalled that O.J. took care of
himself. While he always ordered a
comfort side of grits with his
breakfast eggs and bacon, he
would turn to a healthy tuna or
turkey dish for lunch.
“He wasn’t a deep-fried kind of
guy,” Rosado noted.
Then there’s the other O.J. — the
one who took risks, acted like a
thug, had several run-ins with
Florida lawmen. The one who
could wind up back in prison if the
pattern persists.
Less than year after he first
moved to Florida, O.J. ran a red
light, cutting off a driver whom he
later confronted, ripping off his
glasses and scratching him on the
face. He was charged with felony
auto burglary and misdemeanor
battery, but once again, he was acquitted.
A year later, federal and local
agents raided his home in Kendall
as part of an investigation into an
ecstasy-smuggling ring. He was
never charged in connection with
the drug ring, but the feds did confiscate “bootloader” devices that
the Heisman Trophy winner was
using to pirate cable TV.
Six months after that, he was
ticketed for speeding his boat
through a manatee zone.
But the real warning signal that
O.J. was heading off the rails came
on July 29, 2007.
In an incident exclusively reported by The Post, that evening
an enraged, jealous O.J. showed up
at the home of his handyman, Janos Gonzalez, accusing him of
sleeping with his longtime girlfriend, Christie Prody. Gonzalez’s
wife at the time, Marlene, told The
Post that O.J. held his hand behind
his back as if he had a gun.
“Come over here. I’m going to
f- -king kill you,” the ex-NFL star
bellowed.
He was “very, very violent,” Marlene Gonzalez recalled.
No charges came of the incident,
but The Post confirmed that Janos
Gonzales and Prody indeed had a
relationship. They were arrested
together in Gonzalez’s truck a year
earlier. He was charged with cocaine possession; she was charged
with marijuana and paraphernalia
possession.
Which brings up another challenge for O.J.
During his parole hearing, Simpson admitted that he had neglected
to attend an Alcoholics Anonymous program, saying, “I don’t
think anybody’s ever accused me
of having an alcohol problem.”
Interestingly, three years ago, he
told his friend and promoter, Neil
Pardo, that one of the first things
he wanted to do when he got out
of prison was drink a glass of Jack
Daniel’s.
Oddly, nobody at the parole
hearing mentioned cocaine.
By all accounts, O.J. was heavily
into the drug years before going
to prison. In 1999, Prody’s
mother, Cathy Bellmore, said in a
TV interview that O.J. and her
daughter were users.
Documents from the 2001 drug
raid at Simpson’s house include
witness reports of Simpson doing
cocaine at parties, as well as accounts of Simpson and Prody
showing up at one dealer’s house
“at all hours looking to buy co-
caine.”
The very first scene of the recent, critically acclaimed FX series
“American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” shows Simpson, played by Cuba Gooding Jr.,
snorting cocaine.
Prody, an admitted addict who
was with Simpson on and off for 13
years before he went to prison,
may also prove an irresistible
temptation for him. Neither she
nor her mom could be reached for
interviews, but in an interview
with Radar Online last year, she
spoke of going on “marathon cocaine binges” with O.J., saying that
during those benders, he admitted
to her that he had murdered Nicole and Goldman by telling her
“details only the killer would
know.”
Prody also revealed that Simpson repeatedly beat her and expressed concern about the possibility of O.J. winning parole. Yet
she would always return to him.
“My worst fear is that I will end
up like Nicole — killed by O.J. because he can’t let go,” she said.

FORE! O.J. Simpson, here at a Miami charity golf tourney in 2004, is planning to return to Florida once he’s released from a Nevada prison.
The backyard statue
of O.J., made famous in
scenes from last year’s
hit TV show “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” is in
the hands of an even
more colorful cultural
icon — Flava Flav.
The Public Enemy
rapper once offered to
give the bronze back to
the former gridiron
great, but O.J. refused,
saying,
“They
[the
Goldmans] would just
take it away again,”
TMZ reported.
Simpson has made a
sport of dodging the $33
million he owes the
families of murder victims Nicole Brown
Simpson and Ron Goldman — a civil judgment
now estimated to be
nearing $100 million
with interest. He has reportedly paid less than 1
percent of it.
In 1999, when Simpson
was forced to sell his
Rockingham estate to
pay damages, radio host
Mancow Muller bought
the statue for $3,250. He
gave the statue to Flav,
who reportedly wants to
sell it for six figures.

How DAs rate in trial convictions
Gotham’s
‘guiltiest’
boroughs
By BEN KOCHMAN
If you’re charged with a felony
in New York City, there is only a
1 percent chance you’ll go on trial.
And if you do, you’ll want to be in
The Bronx and not Staten Island.
Bronx prosecutors scored convictions in 49 percent of felony
trials between January 2015 and
May 2017 — far behind the overall
city rate of 67 percent, according
to a Post review of state data.
The number came as no surprise to Stephanie Saldana-Sanchez, who watched in horror in
March 2016 as the man accused of
killing her 21-year-old son, Fabian
Gonzalez, was found not guilty by
a judge at a Bronx bench trial.
“Wow. I feel like the whole system has failed,” she told The Post,
still grieving the loss of the Air
Force veteran, who was fatally
struck when a reputed gangbanger
allegedly opened fire on a stoop in
Westchester Square in 2012.
Felony defendants fared far
worse in Staten Island, where they
were convicted at an 85 percent
clip. Still, only a fraction of accused felons there made it to trial
— 41 cases out of 7,713 arrests.
Citywide, only 1.2 percent — or
2,262 — of the 195,657 adults ar-
rested for felonies saw their cases
resolved by a judge or jury.
That’s a shame, said one policing expert, since detectives would
be better at locking down cases if
more of their arrests made it to a
courtroom.
“There would be better witnesses, better evidence collection
and a better long view of the
case,” said Eugene O’ Donnell, a
John Jay College of Criminal Justice professor and ex-NYPD cop.
“If 99 percent of the cases you
investigate never go to trial, you
don’t know the quality of your
cases . . . I know many a detective
who came back licking his wounds
after he was humiliated in court.
Only after you’ve actually been on
trial do you get a sense of the gaps,
and the things to look for.”

The Bronx DA’s office said it
does not measure success solely
on its conviction rate at trial.
“We strive to obtain the best

people of The Bronx in every case,
and often a plea is the better route
to take instead of going to trial,” it
said in a statement.
Saldana-Sanchez, meanwhile, is
still outraged by the acquittal of
reputed Crips member Jordan Agosto in the May 2012 slaying of her
son, who was in town visiting family on the Memorial Day weekend.
She believes authorities, who
initially mistook Gonzalez for a
gangster, could have worked
harder to secure a conviction.
“I think it was a ‘rush, rush’ because they thought my son was a
gang member,” said Saldana-Sanchez, 45, who works at a government base in Alabama. “They
didn’t know he was a veteran. They
didn’t know what was at stake.”

Bx. ‘basher’ beats parking-spot slay rap
On March 19, 2015, Gjok
Deda, a hulking 50-year-old
from the East Bronx, brutally pummeled to death
his diminutive downstairs
neighbor,
68-year-old
Ronald Antonucci, in a fight
over parking, police said.
He was charged with manslaughter four days later.
Last week, like so many
felony defendants in The
Bronx who go on trial, he
walked free.
Prosecutors alleged that
Deda (right), a contractor,
picked a fight with Antonucci after the older man
backed his car near where
Deda was walking with his
two daughters.
A witness told authorities
that during the spat, the 6foot-3, 220-pound Deda
socked 5-foot-8 Antonucci
in the head.
After spending over two
years on Rikers Island,
Deda was finally tried this
month in Bronx Supreme
Court and jurors on
Wednesday acquitted him.
His lawyer, Dennis Ring,
argued that surveillance
video failed to capture the
episode, that a key eyewitness was inconsistent and
that the alleged victim had
heart problems.
“We don’t know what
happened, and they failed
to show what happened,”
Ring said of Bronx prosecutors.

Ten bomb-sniffing dog
handlers, many of them
9/11 responders, claim
their bosses at a major security firm are using their
lovable Labs as pawns in a
labor fight.
MSA Security, which
has a $24 million contract
with the city and patrols
high-profile spots like the
New York Stock Exchange, the Staten Island
Ferry terminals, the Empire State Building and
Rockefeller Center, uses
the canine co-workers “as
a means of retaliation”
against workers who complain about low pay and
lack of overtime — yanking the pups from handlers who spend years
training, living, bonding
and working with them,
according to a lawsuit.
“The guys that work
there take care of these
dogs better than anybody,” a source said. But
that allegedly didn’t matter to MSA, which would
snatch the dogs “at
whim.”
“MSA could and did remove dogs from the physical possession of [the
handlers] for any reason
or no reason” as a way to
convey “direct and indirect threats for purposes
of squelching dissent,
maintaining ‘order in the
ranks,’ ” the handlers
charge.
And when the firm
wasn’t snatching away the
four-legged friends from
“problem” employees, it
was dumping older dogs
on handlers without com-
pensating them for escalating veterinary costs,
the suit charges.
The company, once
known as Michael Stapleton Associates, retires its
explosives-detecting canines, usually Labrador
retrievers, when the dogs
turn 9 years old. The aging dogs average $20,000
in medical needs.
“MSA avoided the obligation to financially support animals no longer
useful to them and shifted
this expense to the [handlers], who cared for dogs
they did not own because
of the love they had for
their animals and the
unique psychological and
emotional ties they had
with them,” according to
the lawsuit.
Launched in 1987, MSA
Security has become a
BOW-WOW: Explosivesdetection dogs are at the
center of a worker lawsuit.
global powerhouse in the
private and public sectors.
Its 850 employees are led
by CEO Michael O’Neil,
who headed the NYPD’s
first counterterrorism division, and other retired
NYPD and FBI brass.
The unhappy handlers —
Joseph Tallini, Michael
Geidel and 9/11 responders
John Barrett, Bill Beauty,
Joseph Belcastro, Peter
Brown, John Hansen,
Joseph Nacarlo, Richard
Narciso
and
Patrick
O’Connor — are nearly all
NYPD veterans. They are
seeking class-action status
for the claims, which they
believe could include more
than 250 handlers.
The handlers are paid
just $30 an hour for eight to
12 hour shifts, with unpaid
breaks and no overtime or
compensation for the dog’s
care, meals, vet visits or
training, they argue.
MSA’s explosives-detection canines undergo extensive training that includes being hand-fed after
they practice their skills.
The company brags
about its “one dog, one
handler” policy, which it
says leads to “optimum
performance and keeps
our dogs happy, healthy
and effective.”
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages as well
as $5,000 for each underpaid handler.
MSA Security declined
to comment on the allegations but said in a statement it strives for a “positive working environment
and the well-being of our
employee handlers and canines is our top priority.”

Brooklyn ain’t afraid of no
squirrel.
Prospect Park is fearless in the
face of reports of an aggressive,
“possibly rabid” squirrel — with
many parkgoers asserting Saturday that they’d give the cretinous
critter a swift boot to the nuts.
“I would kick it and kill it,”
swore Lakendra Tookes as she
took her Chihuahua, Savannah, for
a walk.
“I’m not gonna sit there and be a
victim of some squirrel,” said
Tookes, a 30-something publicist
from Crown Heights.
Even her pint-sized pooch — a
Brooklyn pup, after all — would
win a squirrel fight, she insisted:
“Between me and my dog, we
could take the squirrel.”
Carlos Nieves, 49, agreed that
fancy footwork was all it would
take to outfox a snarling squirrel.
“I’d pick up my [fishing] gear
and I would stomp on it,” said
Nieves, a Sheepshead Bay-based
electrician.
“I have a big foot,” he noted.
City Health Department officials say five people were bitten by a squirrel in Prospect
Park between Tuesday
and Thursday of
last week — including a 7-year-old
girl.
The bites all happened
near the Parkside and Ocean avenues entrance, and appear to
have been from the same, unusually aggressive critter.
There is no cause for alarm —
only caution, officials stress.
There have been no known
cases of squirrels passing rabies to
humans in the US, they say.
No more bites have been reported since
Thurs-
day, and if the squirrel was indeed
rabid, it has likely died by now, a
spokesperson said Saturday.
Still, the rodent could have infected other squirrels before dying, officials concede.
Parks Department staff and the
Prospect Park Alliance are monitoring the park, searching for the

Avocado victim ‘Hass’ a case
It was a big avoca-don’t.
A Bronx deli just a block
from Yankee Stadium failed
to keep its employees safe,
claims a worker whose jaw
was broken by an irate avocado-hurling customer.
Amr Al-Zabidi was working at the Stadium Deli on
May 29 when two custom-
ers, angry their food order
was messed up, went berserk.
Surveillance video caught
the rampage of Brad
Gomez, 28, and another
man, who became incensed
when they tried to talk to
Al-Zabidi, who doesn’t
speak English. Gomez then
gathered up a handful of the
heavy fruit and slung it at
Al-Zabidi, breaking his jaw.
The two men were charged
with assault.
The store’s negligence
and lack of security led to
the attack, Al-Zabidi claims
in a lawsuit.

Actor John Heard, whose
many roles included the father in the “Home Alone”
series and a corrupt detective on “The Sopranos,” has
died. He was 71.
Heard’s body was found
at a Palo Alto, Calif., hotel
where he was recovering
from back surgery.
Heard played Peter McCallister, the father of
Macaulay Culkin’s character in “Home Alone” and
“Home Alone 2: Lost in
New York.”
After it became a hit, he
was reluctant to revisit the
role but his agent convinced
him the money was too
good to pass up.
“I didn’t want to be the
‘Home Alone’ dad for the rest
of my life,” he said in 2013.
He also played Tom
Hanks’ rival in “Big” and
Geraldine Page’s son in
“The Trip to Bountiful.”
He earned an Emmy nomination for playing Vin
Makazian on “The Sopranos.”

Scaramucci must keep his boss on
message. Trump’s tweet storm
Saturday morning about various
topics is a good example of a bad
habit — it does little to advance
the repeal of ObamaCare, tax
reform and job creation.
Instead, the president’s eruption
is the news, making it easy for the
press to ignore for another day the
substantive topics that matter to
most people.
The Sessions coverage offers
other lessons about the mountain
Scaramucci faces. The president
is on solid ground when he
laments making Sessions his AG,
though the get-Trump media will
never admit it. To them, Sessions
is suddenly a victim of Trump and
a hero for refusing to quit.
In fact, Sessions is neither. As I
wrote in June, Sessions is the biggest mistake Trump made because
it led to the appointment of Mueller and an investigation that is going far beyond its original scope
of whether the Trump campaign
colluded with Russia last year.
Mueller is now said to be looking at Trump’s business, going
back years, in a scavenger hunt for
Russian connections. Donald
Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, the
president’s son-in-law, have been
summoned by Congress, and
probably will be called by Mueller.
In other words, Trump’s family
and his company — in addition to
his presidency — are being put
through the wringer of a criminal
case even though there is no
known crime.
Jeff Sessions helped to set that
disaster in motion.
Soon after being confirmed for
AG, he recused himself from anything involving the 2016 campaign, despite the president’s op-
position. More shocking, Sessions
later told Congress he knew he
would have to recuse himself
from day one because of Justice
Department regulations.
Trump fumed privately about
the recusal, but his public statements last week got to the heart of
the matter. “Sessions should have
never recused himself, and if he
was going to recuse himself, he
should have told me before he
took the job and I would have
picked somebody else,” Trump
told the Times.
It is an entirely reasonable position, given what followed. Rod
Rosenstein, a career prosecutor
selected as the deputy AG, became acting attorney general for
the Russia probe and soon appointed Mueller as special counsel after the firing of FBI Director
James Comey.
In another tangle, Rosenstein
wrote a compelling memo urging
Comey’s dismissal, and because of
that memo, Rosenstein has suggested he, too, might have to recuse himself from overseeing
Mueller.
The result is that Mueller already is effectively unsupervised,
and free to do pretty much what-
ever he wants for as long as he
wants. No president, nor any
other American, should be subject
to an unrestrained prosecutor.
Meanwhile, more leaks of supposedly secret information about
the investigation are emerging. A
report Friday, predictably attributed to anonymous sources, said
Mueller directed the White House
to preserve notes that relate to the
June 2016 meeting Donald Trump
Jr. had with a Russian lawyer and
others.
The current course is a potential
disaster not just for the president,
but for the nation. Democrats and
the left-wing journalists who
never reconciled themselves to
Trump’s victory now see Mueller
as their political avenger, and he
seems to be accepting the role
with relish, voters be damned.
Trump is nobody’s punching
bag, and his staff changes and
public complaints about Sessions,
Mueller and Rosenstein show he
is ready to fight back. He is also
reportedly gathering information
about conflicts of interest on
Mueller’s team, a sign that he sees
this as a battle for survival.
On that point at least, there can
be no disagreement.
Describing an audit of just
eight public schools and one
administrative office that
revealed thousands of laptops
and tablets worth up to $2,000
each were missing, City
Comptroller Scott Stringer was
smoking.
“The bureaucracy is
malfunctioning in mind-boggling
ways,” he said, adding that at
least “35 percent of
approximately 14,000 machines
were not properly accounted for.”
Noting a similar audit two
years ago, he said, “The situation
has only gotten worse.”
And, “As this audit once again
shows, taxpayer dollars are
exposed to waste, fraud and

abuse — and it’s coming at our
kids’ expense.”
Strong stuff — but those schools
are run by Mayor de Blasio, and
Stringer made his charges four
days after he and de Blasio, both
Democrats, endorsed each other
for re-election.
Such is government in a oneparty town.

E
ARLIER this year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff
Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times
editorial page called the Alabama
senator “radical” and “extreme”
and tarred him as an unrepentant
racist and xenophobe.
Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the
same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted
that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who
have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law.
It’s not likely that Sessions is
grateful for the embrace. He
knows he’s just a pawn — dirt
when Trump embraces him, and a
saint when Trump criticizes him.
Media hypocrisy doesn’t get any
more blatant.
Unfortunately, what’s past is
prelude to the coming battles. The
president, shuffling the deck of
his team in preparation for a
showdown with special counsel
Robert Mueller, made a big move
in naming Anthony Scaramucci
his new communications director,
leading press secretary Sean
Spicer to resign.
Scaramucci, a successful hedgefunder whose soft speaking style
belies a passionate core, had a
solid debut Friday. I trust he
enjoyed his one-day honeymoon
with the White House press
corps.
Starting now, he’ll need a long
fuse and an appreciation for the
ridiculous if he hopes to fix the
president’s relationship with reporters. Reputations and facts are
expendable in their race to bring
down the president.
Yet it’s also true that to succeed,
That was fast.
A few days after Gov. Cuomo
and Mayor de Blasio claimed to
be uniting to fight federal
changes to ObamaCare, they
were back to their normal
stance — fighting each other.
With subway service in a
death spiral, the governor and
mayor are trying to pin the
blame, and the cost, on each
other. On a less important topic,
their ducking, dodging and
finger-pointing would be
comical.
But there is nothing funny
about what’s happening to
transportation in New York. It’s
grinding to a halt, above and
below ground.
Beyond their personal animus,
Cuomo and de Blasio know that
gobs of money won’t bring
quick fixes. And with both
facing re-election — de Blasio
this year, Cuomo next — they
find it politically convenient to
blame each other rather than get
stuck with the responsibility for
a job that can’t yield instant
results.
New Yorkers deserve better,
but won’t get it until they hold
the pols accountable. Failure
must have consequences.

Art war targets top galleries
Page
Six
®
Emily
Smith
THE Los Angeles art world is booming — with
NYC and London galleries, and even a Hollywood
agency, opening up spaces in the city’s once-ignored downtown — but not everyone’s thrilled.
Anti-gentrifcation activists accuse the hip,
high-end spaces of so-called “artwashing.” “Galleries can afford to hold a space in a low-income
neighborhood for a long time and make it appear
more hip and desirable to much-higher-income
buyers until increasing real-estate prices make
more lucrative development possible,” reads a
new flier circulated by the Boyle Heights Alliance Against Artwashing and Displacement.
It urges a boycott of UTA Artist Space, the
4,500-square-foot spot opened last summer by
the talent agency that reps stars such as Angelina
Jolie and launched a fine-art division, as well as
Ibid Gallery, the London firm that’s moved to LA.
“Keep Beverly Hills out of Boyle Heights,” read
a protest banner last year. Another group, Defend
Boyle Heights, calls for the boycott of “all the
new art galleries,” which “range from either being ignored or hated by most of our community.”
Galleries targeted by the local radicals include
New York collector/dealer Adam Lindemann’s
Venus LA; an outpost of cool West Village gallery
Maccarone; and 365 Mission, a nonprofit space
launched by artist Laura Owens, gallerist Gavin
Brown, and indie bookseller Wendy Yao.
The protests have shut down one gallery this
year, PSSST, which explained on its site: “The ongoing controversy surrounding art and gentrification
in Boyle Heights caused PSSST to become so contested that we are unable to . . . proceed.” 365 Mission said on Facebook: “We want to stay in Boyle
Heights, however we understand that in order to do
so we have a responsibility to our community.”
But even the lefty Guardian wrote of the dispute: “Artwashing. What a great new political
watchword . . . Just look how Tate Modern has
wrecked London and how the Guggenheim
trashed Bilbao. Get away, ye galleries! Let’s keep
urban wastelands as bleak as they already are!”
An established LA art insider told us of all the
hubbub, “It is fascinating.”

Lane the legend
FAMED costume jeweler and bon
vivant Kenneth Jay Lane, whose creations were worn by top society figures and first ladies, passed away
Thursday at 85. The American jeweler died in his sleep at his Manhattan apartment, his spokesperson
confirmed. His customers included
legends such as Jacqueline Kennedy
Onassis, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth
Taylor, Greta Garbo, Babe Paley and
Diana Vreeland. A documentary
about Lane’s 50-year career is in the
works, and will include interviews
with Barbara Bush and Joan Collins, who recalls when she was
stopped at Customs with Lane’s designs because authorities thought
they were genuine diamonds.

‘Sesame Street’ rap rip-off
Back to television
CHARLIZE Theron (above) is
returning to TV for her pal Seth
MacFarlane’s upcoming sci-fi satire series, “The Orville.” Theron’s
rare TV work includes another guest
role, on “Arrested Development,”
back in 2005. Deadline reported that
details of Theron’s character are being kept under wraps on the “Star
Trek”-like show that follows a USS
starship, the Orville, captained by
MacFarlane. It debuts in September.
Theron and MacFarlane starred together in his 2014 Western parody “A
Million Ways to Die in the West.”
ROMEO Miller, the son of rap mogul Master P known early in his
career as “Lil’ Romeo,” recalls fame as a kid came at a price — his sixfigure jewelry inspired by “Sesame Street” was stolen. “I had these
classic Cookie Monster chains that me and my dad had when I was little. It cost $250,000 apiece,” Miller, now an executive producer of
“Growing Up Hip Hop,” told us. “There was this random valet dude,
and I just took it off and put it in the car because I did not want to wear
it at this event, because it was just too much. So I left my jewelry in the
car. I did not check until the next morning.” But the following day, “I come to find out the valet dude quit
his job the next morning!” Oddly, “the same thing
happened at my own house. One of the cleaning
ladies took my Franck Muller watch.” The
timepieces sell in the tens of thousands. “It was
my first big purchase that I got as Lil’ Romeo —
it was bought with my first $1 million check,”
Miller says. “I went to Rodeo Drive, and it was
one of only two made. I put it in my room, and the
maid literally took it, quit and moved back to Brazil.”

LUANN de Lesseps’ husband nearly called off
their wedding the day before the ceremony. We’re
told Lesseps knew her marriage to Tom D’Agostino — which blew up in a dramatic fight last week
in a New York restaurant — was doomed before
their New Year’s Eve nuptials, but she decided to go
ahead anyway. But a source close to D’Agostino tells
Page Six, “Luann was lucky that Tom made it to the
altar — because it was Tom, not Luann, who nearly
called the whole thing off at the last minute.” Insiders wouldn’t say why D’Agostino got such cold feet.
A source said he ultimately went through with it
because “he loves her.” Meanwhile, Luann didn’t
pull the plug on the shaky relationship before tying
the knot because she feared she would look foolfool­
ish for ignoring her “Real Housewives of New
York City” co-stars’
co­stars’ early warnings about D’Agg­
ostino, and also because she’d already done a
lucrative deal with People magazine for an
exclusive about the wedding. Before the
Palm Beach, Fla., ceremony, Ramona
Singer
Singer — who’d also dated D’Agostino
— told de Lesseps that D’Agostino “goes
to dinner with other women, and he
pushes himself on them.” Bethenny

Frankel showed Luann pictures of her

Monday, the marriage is in trouble. The pair have
broken up and got back together a number of times,
and Luann allegedly slapped her husband when
they got into a spat in a restaurant, according to witnesses. She later denied on Bravo’s “Watch What

admitted to the bust-up in the eatery, she “took his
face in a very loving way, and people took it as a
slap.” Indeed. We’re told the not-so-happy couple
were on vacation together over the weekend.

2020 White House race, Suozzi said that Gov. Andrew Cuomo — who is gearing up for the

his DNA . . . He’s a political genius. He’s not an easy person to deal with one-on-one, personally.” But he said that Cuomo is “very good at working the system, so to speak.” Meanwhile, he
commented of another hot contender for the Democratic ticket, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand,, “she’s not in New York that much,” but he added, “she’s very smart.” Gillibrand and

West Bank raid
Israeli troops grab stab-slay suspect
Israel sent extra troops
into the occupied West
Bank on Saturday and
raided the home of the Palestinian
attacker
who
stabbed to death three Israelis, the military said.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said security forces
“surveyed the house of the
assailant in the village of
Khobar, searched for weapons and confiscated money
used for terror purposes.”
“The brother of the assailant was also apprehended,”
she said, adding: “Movement out of the village will
be limited to humanitarian
cases only.”
In Jerusalem, Israeli police said they used riot gear
to disperse dozens of Palestinians who threw stones
and bottles at them. Television footage showed police
throwing stun grenades and
using a water cannon to
break up the crowd.
The United Nations Security Council will meet on
Monday to discuss the
bloodiest spate of IsraeliPalestinian violence for
years, diplomats said.
The clash and the security raid came after three
Israelis were stabbed to
death on Friday while eating dinner in a settlement
in the occupied West Bank.
The stabbings occurred
several hours after the killings of three Palestinians in
violence prompted by Israel’s installation of metal
detectors at entry points to
the Noble Sanctuary-Temple Mount compound in Jerusalem’s walled Old City.
The Palestinian Health
Ministry said three Palestinians died of gunshot
wounds in two neighborhoods of East Jerusalem,
some distance away from
the epicenter of tension.
Palestinian
Authority
President Mahmoud Abbas
ordered the suspension of
all official contact with Israel until it removed the
metal detectors at the site,
where Muslims pray at AlAqsa mosque.
Israel installed the metal
detectors at the entry point
to the shrine about a week
ago after the killing of two
Israeli policemen stationed
there.
Israel’s security cabinet
was due to convene on Sunday and is expected to discuss alternative security
measures that could be
used to replace the metal
detectors, according to two
Israeli officials, who spoke
on the condition of anonymity.
The three Israelis stabbed
to death and a fourth who
was wounded were from
the fenced-in West Bank
settlement of Neve Tsuf.
The attacker, Omar Alabed,
who invaded their home,
was shot and taken to a hospital for treatment, the military said.
Alabed posted a note on
Facebook prior to the attack, writing: “I am going
there and I know I am not
going to come back here, I
will go to heaven. How
sweet death is for the sake
of God, his prophet and for
Al-Aqsa mosque.”
Israeli Defense Minister
Avigdor Lieberman met
with senior commanders in
the West Bank to assess the
situation and said the attacker’s home would be
promptly demolished, in
line with Israeli policy. He
called on Abbas to condemn the attack, describing
it as a “slaughter.”

‘Drive OD’ dad:
Lot of excuses
By TAMAR LAPIN
and JOE MARINO
The Brooklyn dad who allegedly overdosed while
driving — forcing his 7-yearold daughter to take the
wheel — is giving cops multiple stories to “explain” what happened.
Eric Roman (inset), 37, remains at
Coney Island Hospital, where he’s
telling cops that he
may have conked
out due to sleep
apnea — or that he
may have accidently “vaped”
from an e-cigarette containing marijuana concentrate, a
law-enforcement source told
The Post.
None of Roman’s stories
explains away the two doses
of the emergency opioid-OD
medication Naloxone that
cops say it took to revive
him.
Passing EMT workers
stopped Thursday when
they saw the girl sitting on
her unconscious father’s lap,
steering the still-moving
Lexus along Ocean Avenue.
Roman was so out of it, the
first dose of Naloxone failed
to revive him, the source
said. Only after the second
dose did he come to.
Meanwhile, his
Neighbors called
him a doting dad.
“He’s a hardworking kid,” said
one, who asked
not to be identified by name. “He
has two girls. It’s a
great family.”
The
neighbor
added, “He could have had
one beer. But he’s no heroin
addict, no way.”
Other neighbors said Roman was an attentive dad
who was always with his
family.
He faces charges of reckless endangerment and acting in a manner injurious to
a child.
The Administration for
Children’s Services is investigating the incident.

As Ivy school considers
ban on exclusive groups,
students, faculty and

By DANA SCHUSTER
H
ARVARD is about to get a
lot less exclusive.
Earlier this month, a faculty committee recommended that the university
ban what it called “pernicious” social clubs — including fraternities,
sororities and “final clubs” — stating that they are hotbeds for discrimination and elitism and that
their influence on campus life “is
impossible to escape.”
Under such a ban, which would
go into effect in fall 2018, any undergraduate found participating
in these organizations would be
expelled or suspended — all to
uphold “the importance of inclusion and belonging,” the committee wrote in a 22-page report.
Never mind that Harvard isn’t
exactly known for inclusion: The
college accepted a whopping
5.2 percent of applicants for its
incoming 2021 class.
The ban would affect groups
including the two-century-old
Hasty Pudding Club — which is
now co-ed and whose alumni include President John Adams, Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. and William Randolph Hearst — as well
as the all-female final club the
Bee, founded in 1991.
But the main target of the administration’s ire seems to be the
storied, all-male final clubs,
where amenities can include a
ventilated smoking room (Fox
Club) or a squash court and
sauna (Delphic Club), and stewards guard the doors of milliondollar Harvard Square mansions
during raucous parties.
The rosters are as impressive as
the grounds: The Fly has counted
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
and Jared Kushner as members.
John F. Kennedy was a member of
the (then-all-male) Spee Club,
while Theodore Roosevelt was in
the Porcellian Club.
Current students and promi-
nent alumni of the organizations
are in an uproar over the proposed ban — lawyering up and
even hiring public-relations
firms, as the Porcellian did with
Rubenstein Associates last year.
“The idea that Harvard is now
going to exercise the same sort of
control over its student body as a
strictly run middle school is
deeply offensive,” declared Fly
Club Graduate President Richard
Porteus Jr., Class of ’78.
“It should not be up to the dean
and dean alone to decide when
Harvard undergraduates have recess, with whom, for how long
and doing what.”
T
HE administration’s latest
stance is a more draconian
version of the edict revealed
last spring, in which Dean
Rakesh Khurana and President
Drew Faust said they would strip
members of single-gender, unrecognized clubs of any on-campus leadership positions and refuse to nominate them for academic awards, including Rhodes
scholarships, starting with the
Class of 2021.
Originally, the administration
justified its stance by claiming
that male-only clubs were nefarious because of the number of sexual assaults that took place there.
But when stats proved otherwise,
they switched to a fight against
gender discrimination, said Harvard professor Harry Lewis, who
was dean of Harvard College
from 1995 to 2003 and teaches
computer science at the school.
Now tactics have changed
again, with the committee’s new
proposal battling exclusivity. But
exclusivity is at the heart of Harvard’s ethos.
“I never hear any of my students complaining about not getting into a final club,” Lewis said.
“But I do have people, every term,
coming into my office and complaining that they wanted to get
into courses and were
rejected from them.
The
disappointment
that is supposed to be
so traumatizing that we
excluhave to end the exclu­
sivity of the social clubs
happens all the time . . .
doand it’s the faculty do­
ing the rejecting!”
But for a select group,
the punch process, in
which sophomores are tapped
for the final clubs, is one of the
most important — and stressful
— moments in their undergrad
careers. FDR declared that not
being punched by the Porcellian,
the oldest and most prestigious
final club, was “the greatest disappointment in his life.” (He
ended up joining the Fly Club.)
Punch season begins in September and goes up until the annual Harvard-Yale game in November. Select students receive
wax-sealed invitations slipped
under their doors in the dead of
night. For a club’s first event, 200
to 250 sophomores are invited to
a cocktail party, typically at a
Boston nightclub, according to a
former president of a men’s club.
The club then whittles down the
list to 125 potential members, who
are invited to an alumnus’ estate
or a rented home for the day.
“You show up in a coat and tie
and then you eat and change into
athletic clothes and you throw a
football and smoke a cigar and
play croquet,” said the former
president.
After that, the list is cut to 50.
“The next event is typically a
date event at a castle in Newport,
Rhode Island, that costs $25,000
to put on. You put on a coat and
tie and get bused down there
with your date,” he added.
Thirty punches are brought to a final dinner at the club. “That’s when
they start introducing you to club
traditions,” said the former president. “You sing songs and someone
gets up and tells a limerick.”
Many of the clubs have gorgeous houses situated in Harvard
Square and employ at least one
steward, a day-to-day manager,
and a chef. No members live in
the mansions but, depending on
the club, eat lunches and weekly
dinners there.
Some clubs pull out all the
stops during punch to get the
sophomores they most desire —
flying prospective members out
for all-expense-paid trips to Los
Angeles, New York City or London to meet with alumni.
Only 10 to 20 students are chosen annually for each of the seven
men’s final clubs. Dues range
from $100 to $200 a month for 2¹/
₂ years, although multiple sources
interviewed said financial aid is
easy to come by at the clubs.
“Any elitism doesn’t have to do
with social economic background,” said the former president. “It more has to do with us
wanting . . . the coolest kids on
campus to be in our club.”
T
HIS isn’t Harvard’s first time
in the ring with final clubs.
In 1984, the school threatened to sever ties with the thenall-male organizations unless they
admitted women. When groups
refused, the administration cut off
access to university electricity, as
well as to Harvard’s phone system. (Since then, only Spee has
gone permanently co-ed.)
But the separation did nothing
to stifle the clubs, which outright
own some of the most valuable
property in Cambridge., Mass.
The committee’s 2017 report
quotes a faculty member from
1988 who observed that “final
clubs are where Harvard students
learn to discriminate.” It called
upon Harvard to model itself after
non-Ivy schools such as Williams
College and Bowdoin College,
which banned fraternities decades ago.
Ironically, the committee’s continued battle with the final clubs
has only made them even more
exclusive.
A rising Harvard junior said
the clubs are cracking down on
guest lists and letting fewer outsiders in. “Everyone’s terrified of
pictures and [potential] lawsuits
— of a student getting too drunk
at the club, and that being an issue,” he said.
The all-male Delphic Club
came under fire in April after it
was revealed that members had
hired strippers for an October
2010 punch event. The Fox Club
temporarily closed in November
2015 after it went co-ed and pics
leaked from a party attended by
female prospects that involved
nudity, an alumni member told
The Boston Globe at the time.
(The club soon resumed its allmale status.)
Nathaniel Horwitz, a rising senior at Harvard, said he has multiple female friends who have
been sexually harassed “and even
assaulted in all-male final clubs.”
“They are now pursuing litiga-
F
LY Club Graduate President
Porteus says the proposed
ban will only exacerbate the
very problem the administration
says it’s trying to alleviate.
“Consider this: You are a Latino from Texas, you’re AfricanAmerican from the inner city —
and we have members like that
— and if you join a final club, you
risk being brought before Harvard’s administrative board that
could . . . expel you, and everything you’ve worked for at that
point is upended,” said Porteus,
who lives in New Bedford, Mass.,
and is a charter-school founder.
“Conversely, let’s say you’re a
scion of the 1 percent of Harvard
and there’s a family business to
go to or there’s a lot of social cap-

doesn’t allow nonmembers beyond
the bike room. “There’s
an old wives’ tale at the
Porcellian Club that if
you don’t make your first million by 30, they give it to you,”
said a former member. During initiation, upperclassmen do
not speak to the newly punched sophomores. “It increases
the mystery of the club,” says a 30-something Harvard alum.
Members have included Teddy Roosevelt (above left) and
Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss (above right), the twin Internet entrepreneurs portrayed in 2010’s “The Social Network.”
ital to fall back on . . . You’ll size up
the risk and you’ll take it,” he said.
“Harvard’s own actions will discourage first-generation students
and . . . less-well-off students from
venturing into new territory for
them and finding out that they are
accepted and valued.”
The bigger question is, how enforceable is this potential ban? After
all, the organizations are unaffiliated with the college and their
membership is private.
“I’m trying to imagine if the same 10
students go out to dinner on Thursday night at the same restaurant every
week, is that a club?” Lewis asked.
“How is anybody ever going to know,
and why should we care?
“There is, in the early-21st-century university, a certain infantilizing instinct,” the professor continued. “And this would be consistent
with the pattern.”
SPEE CLUB
Founded in 1852, the Spee went
co-ed in 2015. (It was also the first
final club to accept an AfricanAmerican member.) According to
the former final-club president, it’s where
the international billionaires go to play and
a favorite club for “rich kids who like going
to nightclubs in Boston.” Past members include John F. Kennedy (right) and his
brother Robert F. Kennedy.

Horwitz, who wrote an article
for Town & Country in 2016 explaining why he refused to join a

When Spee voted to go co-ed
in the fall of 2015, some undergraduates felt the process was
sexually charged.
“Suddenly, you have an allmale group voting on women,”
said one female undergrad. “The
only girls who got in were the
ones who had hooked up with
male members and stayed the

Scam artists stole Jennifer Merin’s family legacy.
Proposed
legislation
named in honor of her
family takes it back.
The Merin-Hershman
Act would reform the
city’s
deed-registration
process and protect homeowners from deed theft.
Merin, 73, an Upper
West
Side
resident,
knows from personal
heartache.
An ex-con stole her family’s empty, three-bedroom Tudor in Queens in
2014 by filing a phony
deed with the city and
moving in.
The scam tarnished the
memories of Merin’s Russian and Ukranian grandparents, who moved into
the row house on 141st
Avenue in 1931 and raised
her mom and her mom’s
two siblings there.
Merin’s lengthy legal and
bureaucratic struggle — it
took nearly a year to get
the house back in her name
— drove her to become an
activist on the issue.
Darrell Beatty, 52, spent
eight months in jail for
the fraud.
“Setting things right
caused me great economic
hardship,” Merin told The
Post. “I don’t want anyone
else to experience what I
went through.”
“My family legacy was
stolen from me,” Merin said.
“Everything [they] worked
for was wiped out. It feels
right that my family should

be honored in some way.”
City Council Member
Helen Rosenthal, who introduced the legislation
Thursday with council
colleague Julissa FerrerasCopeland, said the case is
a “cautionary tale for anyone who owns property.”
The bill would codify
Department of Finance reforms by immediately notifying property owners
when deeds or mortgages
are filed for their property.
“We will make it part of
the law that the city must
register every deed and
sign people up for this
mechanism . . . they will receive notification by e-mail
or text message when any
document affecting the
ownership interest is newly
recorded,” Rosenthal said.
The lawmakers hope to
get the bill passed “before
the end of the year.”

The insult came after Rep. James McGovern (D-Mass.) said he would protest if Duterte accepts President Trump’s invitation

drugs, and critics say many were executions. Trump invited him when the two
spoke by phone in April.

A Bronx resident says she
was humiliated after learning that an FDNY EMT who
urged her to guzzle booze
in an ambulance mocked
her in a video that was
posted online.
“I was already intoxicated,” Faith Smith, 46, told
The Post. “I was trying to tell
him, ‘I don’t want no more.’ ”
The FDNY has accused
Kyle Bossio, 27, a rookie
emergency medical technician and aspiring FDNY
firefighter, of filming Smith
as he warned her to “finish
all that liquor, or I will
throw it out,” according to a
caption on the video.
Bossio “resigned in lieu of
termination” when confronted by FDNY investigators, according to a department spokesman.
“He was supposed to
snatch it from me, but he
convinced me to drink:
‘Hurry up, go — drink,
drink, drink,’ ” Smith recalled. “I couldn’t understand what was going on.”
Smith, who has hired a
lawyer, said she downed six
mini-bottles of liquor in her
bag during the ambulance
ride to Lincoln Hospital.
“I didn’t know he was videotaping me all along,” she
complained.
Smith says she called 911
because of “chest pains,” adding she suffers from asthma.
“I said, ‘I can’t breathe,
give me some oxygen,’ but
he didn’t do that,” Smith recalled. “He said ‘No, keep
drinking.’ ”
Smith says she received
no treatment until she got
to the hospital.
Bossio allegedly shared
the video on Snapchat, and
a recipient posted a 36-second montage titled “FDNY
EMT gives intoxicated patient more alcohol on the
way to the ER” on YouTube,
which soon yanked it.
Smith, a mother of three,
said she learned about the
video only after her mom
read about it in The Post.
“What they did was the
exact opposite of what they
should have done,” her law-
yer, Robert Greenstein, said
of the EMT. “As a result,
they put her life in jeopardy,
invaded her privacy and
publicly humiliated her.”
The FDNY said it showed
Smith the video during the
investigation, and will send
her a formal letter, as federal law requires, informing
her of the privacy breach.

Christie OKs school trans law
New Jersey Gov. Chris
Christie signed legislation
Friday requiring the state to
give guidance to public
schools about policies for
transgender students, including
blocking
the
schools from forcing the
students from using bathrooms that conflict with
their gender identities.
The civil-rights group
Garden State Equality ap-
plauded the Republican governor for signing the measure, saying Christie took a
stand for LGBT youth.
The law was passed by
the Democrat-led Legislature after school districts
around the state began
passing their own rules to
allow transgender students
to use whichever bathroom
they choose. The state Education Department said last
year that districts should
pass policies to explain how
they handle gender-identity
issues, but didn’t suggest
what they should say.
“These guidelines are needed to ensure that transgender
students can safely be themselves without fear of being
persecuted,” said Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle, one of the sponsors of the
measure.

Harry Kane
He’s not exactly the next David Beckham: no over-the-top tattoos, pop-star
wife or underwear ads. But Harry Kane, striker for the Tottenham Hotspur (a k a
the Spurs), is a wholesome soccer star who’s all about scoring.
In fact, the 23-year-old (recently engaged to Katie Goodland, the mother of
his baby daughter, Ivy) has been the top scorer in the English Premier League
for the past two seasons, earning consecutive Golden Boot awards.
“It’s nice to look at when I watch TV at night,” Kane told The Post. “They’re in
a cupboard [with] my Man of the Match awards. It’s getting pretty full.”
But New Yorkers might have a bone to pick with the British star: He’s a big
New England Patriots fan and even named his dog after Tom Brady.

On Tuesday, British soccer phenom Harry
Kane brings his magic foot and skills to Red
Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ, taking on AS
Roma as part of the International Champions
Cup exhibition tour.
(Tickets are available for online purchase
through TicketMaster.com.)
New York City, it seems, has already been
converted. “I went to New York a few years
ago and I got noticed quite a lot,” Kane said.
AS ROMA
Although it’s an historic Italian club founded
in 1927, Roma’s management is as American
as apple pie. Bostonian James Pallotta (right) — who coowns the the NBA Boston Celtics — is the current chairman. The Italian league has been dominated by Juventus
for the last six years, but Roma has been closing the gap,
finishing second in three of the past four seasons.
Kevin Strootman
The Dutch midfielder, 27, is a tough-tackling player
who earned the nickname “La lavatrice” — Italian for
“the washing machine”— because he always cleans
up on the field.
Stephan El Shaarawy (right)
It’s impossible to miss the 24-year-old winger,
known for having one of the craziest heads of hair in
the sport. The flashy Italian, whose father is
Egyptian, is called “The Pharaoh” by European press and fans.
Daniele De Rossi (left)
The beloved veteran midfielder is a stalwart of the club,
having played his entire 16-year career there. De Rossi, 33, is
no fan of social media. Earlier this year he said he’d “like to
take a baseball bat” to the teeth of players who use
Instagram in the locker room.
“Walking down the street, I got stopped. At
the Top of The Rock, people asked for photos. You don’t think America is a big Premier
League fan base, but it is.”
For those just getting into it, here’s what
you need to know about Tuesday’s teams:
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
The North London underdog club, founded in
1882, hasn’t won a league title since 1961, but
it’s been a contender for the past two years.
They’re also fan favorites, even on this side of the pond:
The Spurs have 61 official supporters’ clubs in North
America, more than any other English Premier League
team. (The NYC arm meets at Flannery’s in Chelsea.)
Dele Alli (above right)
Alli, 21, has a lingerie-model girlfriend and was
named the world’s most valuable player under 21. In
June, he sparked headlines by flying his barber from
London to Los Angeles for a quick trim. “I see [Alli] as
my younger brother,” Kane said. “I’m always trying to . . .
give him advice, but he hasn’t always listened.”
Mauricio Pochettino (right)
Much of the credit for the club’s momentum goes to
its coach. The 45-year-old shook things up by
embracing young talent, and it paid off. In
March, he banned his wife from the team’s White Hart Lane
Stadium out of fear she would jinx a winning streak.
Hugo Lloris (left)
The French goalkeeper has rugged good looks and magic
hands. He’s regarded as one of the top keepers in the league
and is also the captain of the French national team.

William and Harry remain haunted by their final,
far-too-short phone call
with their mum, Princess
Diana, according to a poignant new interview by the
two princes, marking the
20th anniversary of her
death.
Young boys at the time,
the two had rushed off the
phone so they could continue playing, the Daily
Mail reports.
Within hours, Diana was
killed in a car crash in Paris
with her boyfriend, wealthy
Egyptian heir Dodi Al
Fayed.
“That phone call sticks in
my mind quite heavily,”
William says in the interview for the UK’s ITV network, according to the
Daily Mail.
“If I’d known that was the
last time I’d speak to my
mother, the things I would
have said to her,” added
Harry.
“I have to deal with that
for the rest of my life.”
On that date, Aug. 30, 1997,
William was 15, Harry was
12, and Diana was 36, a year
older than William is now.
The boys were at Balmoral Castle in the Scottish
Highlands, playing with
their cousins and looking
forward to seeing their
mother the next day, after
her month-long trip to
France.

Huck Finn down a fast-flowing

Instead, it wound up becoming a nearly monthlong ordeal,
stranding two honeymooners on a
parasite-ridden lake in the Bolivian
jungle — with nothing to eat but
slugs and frogs.
Holly FitzGerald, now 71 and living in South Dartmouth, Mass., recalls her riveting story in the memoir “Ruthless River” (Vintage Departures, out now).

Subsequent challenges, such as
beating breast cancer in 2004,
were “less intimidating” in comparison — all because she and her
spouse, Fitz, 70, cheated death 44
years ago.
The epic tale began in February
1973, five months into the couple’s
yearlong honeymoon backpacking
around South America.
There was a general plan to
reach Rio de Janeiro and then
board a ship bound for Africa, but
the newlyweds were frequently
sidetracked while meeting interesting people en route. One such
encounter, with some anthropologists, aroused their curiosity about
the Amazon basin.
So they booked seats on a puddle
jumper to the Peruvian frontier
town of Puerto Maldonado. It
would be their first mistake.
“The wobbly plane began to de-
scend very fast, pushing me sideways, causing me to grasp the
bench,” Holly writes in her book.
“We were thrown back and forth,
held by our wide seat belts . . . I
caught sight of the plane’s right
wing and engine out of the window. They’d snapped off entirely.”
The DC-3 — with 13 people onboard — crash-landed in the jungle. Incredibly, no one was badly
hurt in the accident, which was
likely a result of pilot error. The
survivors were escorted across a
river to the nearest shelter: an
open penal colony full of convicted
murderers and rapists.
“Deep in the dense and unforgiving thicket, prison walls
were not necessary,” Holly
writes.
“The inmates . . . could
never escape. It dawned
on me that now we were
imprisoned, too.”
Although the passengers
slept in separate barracks
from the inmates, there was
a sense of menace in the air.
Despite daily promises from
prison guards that help was on the
way, it was four long days before a
plane appeared on the muddy pasture that served as a runway.
sheeting lined with mosquito netting — and navigate 500 miles of
the Madre de Dios river to Riberalta, Bolivia, themselves.
“At first, it was idyllic,” recalled
Holly, who reveled in the jungle
scents of ripe mangoes and gardenia. “You could read. Relax. Take
photographs. We were as free as
butterflies, soaking up the scenery
and the tranquility because nobody else was on the river.”
That should have set off alarm
bells. But the duo took comfort in a
local’s prior assurances that, if
their raft accidentally took a detour
along a tributary, it would always
eventually return to the main river.
wards,” Holly writes, She heard the
horror-movie rip of the plastic tent
as a large tree trunk crashed
through, pinning her to the raft.
Her husband struggled to pull
the tree off her as the small vessel
rocked back and forth, threatening
to capsize at any second.
“The roots scraped my naked
back. They felt like they were going deep,” Holly wrote of the harrowing episode.
Fitz managed to free her, but not
before an army of fire ants
emerged from the bark and began
biting Holly all over her body.
Once the storm quieted, the sun
soon came up to reveal a frightening reality: The couple were
now off course, with no idea of
their location.
“We didn’t know it at the
time, but we were stranded in
the middle of a swamp — a seasonal lake formed because of
flooding,” said Holly. “Most of
our food and supplies had
fallen overboard during the
night. Our tent was ripped to
shreds, so we had to replace it
with spare plastic sheeting we’d
managed to hold onto.”
At first, they thought they had
drifted into a tributary of the river
and that, if they risked the piranhas
and invasive fish, they could swim
against a current that was visible in
the distance and return to the spot
where they’d been blown off
course. But once the storm waters
settled, their raft was too wide to
safely navigate the swamp’s channels, so they had no choice but to
swim to try to get help.
As the land around them was
submerged, there was no question

It was flood season, and the next

three months away.
Encouraged by locals, the hardy
young couple decided to build a
raft — using four logs and a makeshift tent fashioned from plastic

“He convinced us it would be a
straightforward journey,” said
Holly of the man. They had nevertheless been warned not to swim
in the water for fear of flesh-eating
piranhas and candiru fish, which
can enter the body through the
nether regions and feed off intestines.
On their fourth night, fortunes
changed. While the couple was
sleeping, a raging thunderstorm
brewed. Torrential rain pelted the
tent, threatening its collapse.
“Just then, something slammed
the bow, pulling the raft down-
of getting anywhere on foot.
Tying the raft and their few remaining possessions to a bush
above the water line, the duo decided to swim toward help. (Holly
prayed that the caimans — a carnivorous, alligator-like reptile in
the water — remained dormant.)
The couple swam for hours at a
time — only to travel less than half
a mile and give up. They went back
to their raft, marooned for 26 days,
knowing no one was looking for
them. They had told their family
back home that they’d be exploring
for at least a month.
T
HE couple were besieged by
bees, mosquitoes and other
biting insects. They tried to
catch fish but had zero luck.
Strange noises from the jungle terrified them at night, and they felt
themselves weaken by the hour.
Holly and Fitz became skeletal and
frequently doubled over in pain
because of the lack of food. One
morning, Holly initially couldn’t
wake her husband and feared he
had died in his sleep.
They whiled away the time by
gazing at a water-damaged photo
of their beloved dog, Zelda.
“It was a reminder of what
awaited us if we could only survive,” Holly writes.
Then, for the first time, Holly
became overwhelmed by a desire to have a baby in the future.
“Despite my physical debilitation, my mind had achieved a
heightened clarity,” she writes.
“As starvation consumed my
body, its effects trimmed the fat

scheme — I would be a mother.”
This strengthened the pair’s resolve, and they started to comb the
bushes and water around them for
frogs, grasshoppers, snails and slugs
to eat.
“We had to get over the gag reflex,”
Holly recalled. Increasingly desperate, they even consumed potentially
poisonous berries, which mercifully
turned out to be safe.
On their 26th day in the swamp,
Holly had a premonition. “We’re going to make it out of here. I just know
it,” she told her ailing husband, who
lost 40 pounds during the ordeal.
(Holly herself shed 20 pounds.)
Hours later, after nearly a month of
not seeing a single soul, they spotted
two Indians hunting turtles from a
canoe. Using made-up hand signs
and broken Spanish, the honeymooners convinced the men to take
them to their village. They later traveled to their original destination of
Riberalta.
Over the next two weeks, the
FitzGeralds were treated in a hospital
for exhaustion, severe malnutrition,
and the bites and stings they’d received. In April 1973, they finally returned home. Three years later, their
daughter Megan was born, followed
by another girl, Aiden, in 1979.
Fitz went on to a career in journalism and worked as a press secretary
for Michael Dukakis. Holly was a social worker until she retired in 2012.
They now have four grandchildren.
Remarkably, their brush with death
didn’t curb the couple’s enthusiasm for
travel. They have since visited far-flung
destinations including Bali, Malaysia,
Ethiopia, Sudan and the Himalayas.
“With hindsight, it does seem rather
foolhardy to have taken the raft on such
a big river, but I can’t say I have deep regrets,” said Holly. “The whole experience brought Fitz and
I closer together.

Fate of ISIS recruits
Foreign terror backers face death in Mosul
By EILEEN AJ CONNELLY
At least 18 foreigners arrested by
Iraqi authorities on suspicion of
fighting for ISIS could face the
death penalty, Iraqi officials said
Saturday.
They’re among 26 non-Iraqis
placed into custody since “terrorists were cleared” from the northern city of Mosul after it was retaken from ISIS last month.
The group includes a 16-year-old
girl from Germany who ran away to
marry a Muslim Arab ISIS member
she met on social media.
Other prisoners include women
from France, Belgium, Germany,
Russia, Iran, Syria, Turkey and possibly Canada; two Chechen men
and eight children.
The kids will be sent back to the
countries they came from.
Many of the women — who are
being held in a jail near the Baghdad airport — were taken into cus-
tody after barricading themselves
in a tunnel underneath the ruins of
Mosul.
All were armed with weapons and
explosive belts when they were
busted.
The fate of their husbands, all
ISIS fighters, is unclear.
German
diplomats have visited
Linda Wenzel (inset), the runaway
teen, and four other
German females.
French women at
the prison were
likewise visited by
officials from their
embassy.
Officials in Baghdad said several of
the women, including Wenzel, had
been working with
ISIS police in Mosul.
Some reports said Wenzel had
been acting as an ISIS sniper.
The women will likely be tried on
charges of terrorism and face capital punishment under Iraqi law.
A test case could be brought
against a French woman captured
July 9 in Mosul along with her two
sons
and
two
daughters.
She and her children had been
found hiding in a
basement.
Some of the children in custody
may be teenagers
who, like Wenzel,
were targeted by
ISIS recruiters online.
Wenzel’s future is
unclear — she
might be tried, or
handed over to
Germany, because
she is a minor who had been reported missing.
Hundreds of people have left
Western European countries to
make their way to ISIS in Iraq and
Syria. Many of them were radicalized on social media, often through
videos posted online.
German prosecutors filed charges
against the suspected leader of ISIS
in that country, Abu Walaa, and
four of his associates last week.
Walaa is known as the “preacher
without a face” because he wears
black robes that hide his features
from the camera in his videos.
Germany estimates that about 20
percent of the would-be jihadists
from that country are women. Minors account for about 5 percent of
the total, about half of them girls.
While some have been killed in
battle and suicide bombings, and
others have returned home, a large
number are unaccounted for.

TV exec reveals relationship with ‘devil’
By MICHAEL KAPLAN
M. William Phelps needed to
cozy up with a serial killer.
He required a monstrous human
who had murdered brutally,
showed no remorse and understood vicious mind-sets to play an
integral role on “Dark Minds,” a
reality show that Phelps had created for the cable channel Investigation Discovery. The program
centered on unsolved serial killings, and Phelps hoped that the
assistance of an incarcerated serial
killer would provide valuable
insights.
He had no idea how much that
decision would change him.
As outlined in Phelps’ book
“Dangerous Ground: My Friendship With a Serial Killer” (Kensington, out Tuesday), the killer in
question is Keith “Happy Face” Jesperson — the nickname derives
from a smile he scribbled on a letter to the Oregonean newspaper,
while he was still actively killing. A
6-foot-7 truck driver (an ideally nomadic occupation for a serial killer,
it turns out), he used his hands to
murder eight women across the
country from 1990 to 1995.
For six years, Phelps communicated with Jesperson on a regular
basis, accruing around 100 e-mails life or under his skin. John Kelly, a Mass five days a week,” said

Jesperson’s cross-wired brain
and the circumstances he encountered were simultaneously combustible and numbing.
“I searched for a bit of humanity
in this monster. Toward the end of
our conversations I saw a sparkle
of it,” said Phelps, who, despite it
all, remains in touch with Jesperson and hopes to work with him
on another project.
“He told me about playing with
his pre-school[-age] son in the late
1980s, a year or two before the killings began,” Phelps recalled. As
the boy created structures with
building blocks, Jesperson would
knock them down. He told Phelps
it “[felt] good to see his boy frustrated. Then [Jesperson] said he
did not know why he felt that way.
“I didn’t think he could experience sympathy or empathy like a

sensed for a split second that he
actually felt something. Then, an

LIGHTS OUT: During the
“Great American Eclipse” on
Aug. 21, New Yorkers will be
able to witness a 75 percent
eclipse much like this 2012
one in Albuquerque, NM.
By JASON KERSTEN
THIS summer’s largest gathering will
make Woodstock look like a backyard barbecue and divide the nation into two parties: those who see it, and those who don’t.
On Monday, Aug. 21, at precisely 9:04
a.m. PST, the shadow of the moon will
touch down in Lincoln City, Ore., beginning a total solar eclipse that will cross 14
states, all the way to the South Carolina
shoreline. (The last time such an event
happened coast to coast was in 1918.)
Some 12.2 million people live within the
70-mile-wide band where the eclipse will
be total — and millions more are expected
to travel to witness it firsthand. From Oregon to South Carolina, hotel bookings have
skyrocketed. Charleston, SC (where totality will be visible for more than a minute),
is almost at capacity, with some lodgings
having sold out two months ago. In Oregon, cases of motels dropping reservations
and then attempting to resell them for up
to $1,000 a night have gotten so bad that
the state’s attorney general has opened an
investigation.
“If we have some good weather, it will
absolutely be the most viewed total eclipse
in human history,” said Fred Espenak, a retired NASA astrophysicist who has witnessed 20 total solar eclipses.

would spark a rise in holdups, the city’s
lighting officials decided to turn on the
streetlights north of 72nd Street. Extra
cops were ordered for uptown.
On the morning of the eclipse, the normal commute reversed: The million people
who normally came down from uptown
and The Bronx stayed put. A million from
Brooklyn and lower Manhattan trekked
north.
“The moon dropped over like an ominous curtain,” The Post reported of the 30second totality. “It was as if the black-hand
of fate had snuffed man’s solar candle. And
suddenly the watching thousands realized
the wonder of the universe and the weakness of little men.”
Observers south of 96th Street saw a brilliant burst of sunlight emanating from behind the moon’s light-ringed edge — giving
birth to the term “the diamond ring effect.”
Even Mayor John F. Hylan, running for a
third term, tried to capitalize on the event
by staging a campaign speech that day. But
he scheduled it to take place during the actual eclipse and at City Hall — more than
six miles south of the prime viewing area
uptown. He later lost the election.
Notes Rao: “Mayor Hylan was not known
to be very intelligent.”

Two highly
popular TV
shows about
O.J. Simpson
last year have
only served to
strengthen his
star power.
New York Post, Sunday, July 23, 2017
OPINIONS
& IDEAS
HE outcome of
O.J. Simpson’s parole hearing,
broadcast live
Thursday, was
clear from the
very
beginning,
when
MAUREEN
chairperson
Connie Bisbee CALLAHAN
addressed him
not as Inmate
#1027820 but as a star.
“I’m a little nervous, so bear with
me,” she said. It was an odd ceding of
power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But
Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular
nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been
a figure like him in American life.
Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board
member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie.
When Bisbee mistakenly declared
Simpson 90 years old, she corrected
herself with an overly folksy tone, like
she’d just bumped into an old friend at
a cocktail party.
“You look great for 90!” Bisbee exclaimed. “How ’bout we take two decades off and call you 70?”
This was entertainment under the
guise of legal proceeding.
Such was the theater it seemed Simpson was in the same room as his parole
board. In fact, the whole thing was
done via teleconference, O.J. testifying
from Lovelock Correctional Center in
Nevada, the parole board two hours
away in Carson City. You’d never know
it — not once was anyone seen addressing a screen instead of a person.
Simpson was shot often looking contrite, shoulders slumped, head bowed,
the parole board of four seated at a table that seemed several feet above him.
Bisbee set the tone for everything to
follow. “Mr. Simpson,” she said, smiling, “you are getting the same hearing
that everyone else gets.” The gallery
laughed at her obvious lie. Everyone
else doesn’t get a livestream hearing,
oddsmakers placing bets or the chance
to sway public opinion.
The fiction remains seductive.
It’s odd, given we spent much of last
year re-litigating O.J. Simpson through
two highly popular, critically acclaimed projects: Ryan Murphy’s
multi-part fact-based FX drama “The
People vs. O.J. Simpson,” and Ezra
Edelman’s Oscar-winning eight-hour
docuseries “O.J.: Made in America.”
Both carefully explained and ultimately dismantled the O.J. Simpson
myth. Both left the unmistakable impression that he was guilty of the savage murders in 1994 of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend
Ronald Goldman. In both, he is portrayed as remorseless.
By the end of 2016, it seemed as though
America had finally come to terms with
Simpson and what he signified about us:
race relations then and now, our often
toxic relationship with fame and mass
media and, from a 20-year rearview, the
inevitable not-guilty verdict.
Somehow, rather than diminishing
Simpson’s star power, those projects
strengthened it. Suddenly O.J. was no
longer a lowlife criminal rotting away
in prison, forgotten and irrelevant. He
was back at the forefront of American
pop culture. Little did we know then
that his chances for imminent parole
had perversely increased.
At Thursday’s hearing, both sides
knew what roles they had to play:
Simpson, contrite and vulnerable, the
parole board, powerful and impervious.
Given this drama and subtext, it’s
easy to forget the actual crime: In 2008,
Simpson was convicted of armed robbery, kidnapping, assault with a deadly
weapon, burglary and conspiracy for
barging into a Las Vegas hotel room
and threatening a sports-memorabilia
dealer named Bruce Fromong. Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison,
with eligibility for parole in nine.
At the time, conventional wisdom
rightly held that Simpson’s harsh sentence was retribution for his 1995 acquittal, even though Simpson was
found civilly liable for the deaths in
1997. Fred Goldman, Ron’s father, says
they’ve seen less than 1 percent of the
$33.5 million Simpson was ordered to
pay. Goldman was unmoved by Simp-
son’s pleas for parole.
“He’s the same person,” he told “CBS
This Morning.”
Simpson’s testimony proved it. On
display was the narcissism, the excuses,
the complete lack of empathy, the entitlement. He used the minimizing language so common among criminals: It
just “happened.” “We didn’t break into
any room” — they walked in.
Guns were brandished? Wow, that was
the first O.J. was hearing about that. Why
didn’t he complete his Commitment to
Change course, or attend, as he promised, AA? He’s been busy. “I recently became commissioner of the softball
league . . . My agenda was full here. I
don’t have much time to sit around.”
Did they know he’s a devout Baptist
now? He leads services. He mediates
disputes. “I’ve basically led a conflictfree life,” he said. Not one parole board
member challenged him.
Just once did the monster come out,
when board member Tony Corda said
Simpson’s version of events differed
from the record.
Simpson lowered his eyebrows and
leaned into the microphone, eyes stone.
“IT’S BEEN RULED LEGALLY BY
THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA THAT
IT WAS MY PROPERTY,” he bellowed.
Corda blanched and stammered a response while Simpson quickly corrected himself, the happy face reemerging. By the way, did the board
know what Simpson had done for
Fromong’s mother?
“When his mother was terminally ill —
she was a fan — I’d call her and sing to her.”
There it is. To O.J. Simpson, the dying
mother of a son held at gunpoint by
Simpson’s cronies was a fan.
After a seemingly pro forma private
meeting, the parole board freed Simpson. Now, the O.J. who spent much of
his post-1995 life as a social pariah reemerges into a different cultural landscape, ready for his next narrative: the
redemption arc.
The only question: Do we, like the
Nevada parole board, buy it?

AUL Nungesser finally got
justice last week. Nungesser

Emma Sulkowicz (aka Mattress Girl) of sexual assault during
their sophomore year at

for years afSCHAEFER terward —
sued
the
RILEY
school under
Title
IX,
claiming that he was subject to unfair treatment because of his sex.
Columbia announced earlier this
month that it had settled the suit.
But whether other men like Nungesser — whose lives are thrown off
track for years by false accusations
of rape mishandled by universities
— will be forced to endure the same
experience remains likely. There are
many reasons why Columbia’s acknowledgment of its culpability
won’t have much effect on other universities’ behavior, but the biggest
one is this: The terms of the settlement were undisclosed.
For universities, handling sexual
assault — like almost everything —
is a matter of money. And so far the
suits by those falsely accused — and
often falsely convicted, suspended
or publicly shamed — have not been
expensive or frequent enough to deter schools from these witch trials.
On the other hand, they have
plenty of financial incentive to continue. Under a 2011 directive by President Obama’s Education Department Office for Civil Rights, schools
were threatened with a loss of federal funds if they did not comply
with a variety of questionable procedures when investigating sexual assault claims. As Brookings Institution fellow Stuart Taylor wrote in
The Wall Street Journal a few months
— 90 percent of them — fall into the
category of ‘we were both drunk, we
broke up, and six months later I
found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided
that our last sleeping together was
not quite right.’ ”
But Jackson quickly apologized
and Trump has made no moves in
this direction, which leaves it up to
others to make colleges feel the financial pain for the abominable way
they have treated these men. Maybe
there are a few parents who would
think twice about sending their kids
to schools with the most egregious
problems — Amherst and Yale are
two that stand out. But individual tuitions are not enough.
Frankly it’s going to take some big
lawsuits to change colleges’ calculations, and that’s why it’s a shame (but
not an accident) that the amount of the
Columbia settlement was undisclosed.
The administration doesn’t want to
encourage more plaintiffs to come forward at Columbia or elsewhere.
According to “The Campus Rape
Frenzy,” by Taylor and KC Johnson,
at least 100 lawsuits have been filed
in recent years by students who say
they were wrongfully punished by
colleges after being accused of sexual assault. But only the wealthiest
families have the means to sue.
(Nungesser, a scholarship student
from Germany, was the exception.)
Most students are content if a university simply agrees to expunge the
issue from their records. Some cases
have been settled, but most amounts
remain in the six-figures.
For a school like Columbia with a
$9 billion endowment, that’s “the
cost of doing business,” says Gail
Heriot, who sits on the US Civil

Rights Commission. But with the
right lawyers and the right cases,
even wealthier schools may be sorry.
The students involved in the Duke
lacrosse case were rumored to have
received as much as $20 million each
from their (again undisclosed) settlement with the university.
But in order to avoid the bad publicity, many schools are happy to
shell out the money. The fact that the
University of Missouri’s freshmen
enrollment is down 35 percent this
year as a result of the riots there in
2015 “show that bad publicity can indeed be hazardous to a university’s
health,” Heriot says. Meanwhile,
schools that have fewer resources,
Heriot notes, “simply cannot afford
to be paying out large sums of money
to plaintiffs like this.” Perhaps those
should be the first targets.
But settlements in and of themselves should not be the goal, says
Taylor. “If the right family is ready
to fight back hard rather than filing
a lawsuit and settling,” he says, “they
could take a big university to the
mat. You could sue every single
member of the administration who
was part of case. You could add the
woman as a defendant and any activist who participated. Punitive damages could be tens of millions of dollars.” But it would take a very welloff family or an ACLU-like organization with a lot of resources to take
on the school’s army of lawyers and
go for the jugular — i.e., not settle.
Harvey Silverglate, a civil rights attorney in Boston, notes: “If a case
survives a motion to dismiss and goes
to the ‘discovery’ phase, the plaintiff
is entitled to take depositions to examine college personnel under oath
and also to delve into files and records.” Silverglate notes there could
be “a lot of embarrassing stuff” there.
Of course, says Taylor, a plaintiff
who refuses a settlement and pushes
the case all the way to court is taking
a gamble that he might not win. On
the other hand, he could “become
nationally famous as champion of innocent people.” Not a bad way to
start life after college.

also said that track fires are “a real concern”
and that the answer is to “educate people
and create some more enforcement.” That’s
rich from a guy who’s used every trick he
could to hamstring the NYPD — from banning stop-and-frisk to trash-talking cops as
“racist.”
The NYPD is losing authority to enforce
anything in the subway short of assault and
murder. Recently, both the Manhattan and
Brooklyn DAs said they’ll no longer prosecute turnstile jumpers, who will receive
toothless “civil tickets” instead.
Now, legal-aid groups are pressuring prosecutors in Queens and The Bronx to do the
same, arguing that punishing turnstile
jumpers unfairly targets NYC’s poor population, many of whom are immigrants who
will be deported for the crime. “We need
uniformity citywide on this issue from all
local DAs, especially in the era of
Trump,” Tina Luongo, head of
Legal Aid’s criminal practice,
told a local paper last week.
This crusade follows the
City Council’s removal
last year of criminal
penalties for “minor”
offenses, such as public urination, in favor
of small fines.

NEWS OF THE BOOZE
EATING THEIR
WORDS
New York Post, Sunday, July 23, 2017
M
TA Chairman Joe Lhota came up
with a bonkers “brainstorm” last
week to speed up the failing subways: Ban riders from eating certain “inappropriate” foods on trains and
platforms.
Food on tracks causes
fires, like the one that
crippled the A, C, B, D,
Q , N, W and R lines one
day last week, Lhota
said. He cited the carnage caused by a Chinese-food eater he saw
on the No. 2 line — “inevitably, the rice fell
STEVE
and it was all over the
CUOZZO place,” Lhota said.
Let’s take Lhota’s proposed culinary crackdown on its own goofy terms and ask how
he would enforce it:
Would he empanel a team of experts to
decide what foods are inappropriate to
bring into the catacombs and which are not?
Chicken tikka masala’s OK, but not chicken
rice biryani?
Jokes are easy. Fixing the problem isn’t.
Providing more trash cans would be one
solution. But for five years the MTA has
been removing (!) trash cans on the theory
that it would encourage riders to hold onto
their garbage. (The agency claims it’s ended
the “pilot program.”)
Never mind. The only real way to clean
up our pestilent subway pit is to do something that isn’t going to happen: crack down
on its increasingly bold abusers.
Food and Styrofoam don’t grow naturally
out of the roadbed. They get there because
people throw them there.
The vast majority of riders behave responsibly, even when trains
are overpacked, sweltering
and slow. It takes only a
tiny minority to ruin
things for everyone else.
They’re doing precisely

this qualified (and cost-effective)
workforce for reasons that involve
prejudice on both sides, but this is
starting to change, especially as
technology transforms the world of
work. Together, employers who
think more flexibly about work and
caregivers who think more strategically about their options can turn
lots of unused capacity into mutual
benefit — as long as policy-makers
don’t stand in the way.
F
EW trends in social science are
as clear as women’s entrance
into the workforce over the past
60 years. The US labor-force partici-
pation rate for women rose from
about 37 percent at the beginning of
1957 to about 57 percent now. Close
to 70 percent of mothers with children under age 18 participate in the
labor force. Some 64.2 percent of
women with children under age 6
work, as do 58.1 percent of women
with infants under 1 year old.
Despite these changes, Americans
still have mixed feelings about mothers working for pay. A 2014 Pew Research Center survey found that 60
percent of Americans say that children are better off with a parent at
home. That’s the pull factor, but
there are push factors, too. Childcare costs have risen at twice the
rate of inflation since 2009. If a
young family is facing $250 per kid
each week in child-care costs, that’s
$500 for two kids, or $25,000 a year.
Rates for center-based care in large
cities can easily top $400 per week,
which adds up to $20,000 for one
child, or about $40,000 for two.
With the average woman who
works full-time earning $744 per
week, or a bit under $39,000 a year,
there is not much immediate posttax value to be had, and even if a
young mother knows that long-term
her child-care costs will fall and her
income will rise, the burdens of being a two-job family are profound.

means that beyond any question of
a mother’s preference to care for her
children, the rational economic
choice is for her to step out.
This makes sense, but this decision puts many families in an economic bind, one not as broadly understood as it should be. In 2003, the
New York Times Magazine ran an
enormously influential story called
“The Opt-Out Revolution.” Journalist Lisa Belkin profiled women with
law degrees and MBAs who had left
the workforce to care for their children, in part because their husbands
earned enough that they could afford to do so. Such families exist in
rarefied pockets of the country, but

OMPANIES that structured
some work into the form of
part-time virtual jobs would
find several upsides — first, a vastly
expanded applicant pool. “You can
hire in geographic areas where it
might be a lower cost of living,” says
Sara Sutton Fell from FlexJobs. You
can tap a workforce that your competitors are generally ignoring.
You’ll get employees who are grateful for work, no small thing in terms
of retention and engagement.
Second, “there are some real significant cost-savings arguments that
can be made,” as Fell says. People are
willing to work for less. FlexJobs research has found that of its survey
respondents, 22 percent said that
they’d take a 10 percent cut in pay to
work from home; 7 percent said that
they’d take a 20 percent cut. “And
they’d be happy about it!” Fell adds.
Two part-time people could be
paid less than one full-time person,
with no danger of hitting the 40hour mark for either, where new labor laws may require many middleincome workers to be paid overtime
rates. Part-timers generally don’t expect the same benefits as full-timers.
Employers could face lower healthcare costs and may not need to offer
as many vacation days. And virtual
work incurs no real-estate costs.
Some companies have developed
business models around hiring people (often mothers) into part-time,
virtual positions. DVMElite, which
this labor market, including customer-service firm LiveOps, and Rosetta
Stone, the educational-software
firm. One of Rosetta Stone’s member
companies, Lexia Learning, hires
former educators to work with classrooms implementing the company’s
software. Rosetta Stone also hires
native speakers of various languages
to work online with students. “This
work suits a part-time, remote employee very well, as they can dictate
their own hours and manage their
own schedule as they see fit,” says
Brandon McTavish, head of talent
acquisition.
Technology and the “gig economy” also present opportunities for
caregivers who want control over
their time but may not be able to set
up their own fully managed businesses. It’s easy to turn on the Uber
or Lyft apps and drive people to the
airport while your kids are at school.
Younger people, in particular, have
expectations of flexibility.
“Millennials are coming into the
world with such a different idea
about time and space because of the
way they’re experiencing the world
through technology,” says Forman.

MPLOYERS have some legitimate reasons for viewing
SAHMs as problematic job candidates. Women who are full-time
caregivers for young children often
start seeking employment only after
their children go to school. Employers are understandably wary of long
employment gaps on a résumé. “Hiring decisions are among the most
fraught emotional decisions that people make at work,” says Tami Forman,
who runs a nonprofit called Path Forward, which offers “returnships” to
mothers who want to re-enter the
workforce — short stints at companies, generally with lower pay but
lots of training, undertaken with the
expectation of a job offer at the end.
Both sides get a chance to try before
they buy, which can counter some of
the hiring bias against caregivers.
Some job boards are starting to
specialize in returning mothers;
Après, for example, features content
and job listings for women who want
to “reconnect with your professional
self.” These are certainly helpful,
though many such initiatives are
aimed at women on the high end of
the labor market, with professional
degrees and likely significant work
experience prior to their career
breaks. If these women face obstacles when they seek employment —
and a 2013 New York Times follow-up story, “The Opt-Out Generation Wants Back In,” found that they
do — women without such skills and
experience clearly will find the going even harder.
But the barriers aren’t just on the
employer side. Many mothers want
to have control over their work
hours and generally limit work to between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. According
to one Pew survey, about 4 in 10
SAHMs say that their ideal situation
would be to work part-time. Many
also want to work from home —
which allows for being available for
home-related tasks or volunteering.
When companies do try to employ
returning homemakers, through programs such as Forman’s, the general
assumption is that these workers
just need a little help to get hired —
and, once hired, they will work just
like other people. This may not be
true, however, for mothers of schoolaged children.
“There is a huge untapped capacity
to be found in the many women who
anachronism. But it remains a popular anachronism. A few employers,
such as Yahoo, have made news by
canceling telecommuting arrangements because of the supposed benefits gained by bumping into colleagues in the hallway. Policy-makers (and parts of the legal world)
have also sought to regulate the
emerging virtual, part-time or ondemand labor force.
Such efforts stem from the seemingly progressive idea that all jobs
should be good jobs, defined as
those offering a family-supporting
wage, full-time regular hours and
benefits. This is the impulse behind
efforts to raise the minimum wage,
with laws passed in California, New
York, Seattle and elsewhere pushing
the pay floor to $15 an hour over the
next few years.
Uber has faced lawsuits around the
country that contend drivers should
be employees, not independent contractors, with social-insurance contributions made on their behalf and
with the requirement drivers get paid
the (rising) minimum wage. President Barack Obama’s Affordable
Care Act required many employers
to provide health insurance for those
working just 30 hours a week, not the
40-hour minimum traditionally considered as full-time.
These well-meaning ideas might
seem sensible in the context of traditional workers, but they make employers less likely to take a chance on
people with spotty work histories, or
those who want to work irregularly,
or from home. Requiring benefits for
part-time jobs makes such jobs less
attractive for employers — even as
it becomes clearer that most mothers
do want to work in some way.
Meredith Lutz stepped out of the
workforce several years ago to care
for and home-school her two children. She enjoys spending the majority of her time this way. However,
eventually she found that “I really
wanted to do something where I
could make some money, so I could
feel like I could buy what I wanted.”
Her conditions: flexibility, so that
she didn’t have to pay a sitter; and
the ability to work from home. Her
brother, an entrepreneur, recognized
her skills (a college degree and lots
of work experience) and began sending administrative and bookkeeping
work her way. She now works as a
virtual assistant for his companies
for a few hours a week. It has worked
out well for both of them, but she has
seen plenty of other mothers take
work that doesn’t make the most of
their skills, and pays poorly, precisely because they don’t have such
connections.
It’s a gap that smart employers
should recognize. “We all as humans
need something to do,” says Lutz.
“You need to be busy and have something that energizes you.”

These women are generally younger than working mothers and more
likely to be nonwhite and foreignborn. The men they marry or live

a family well on their own.
The median male income for fulltime work has declined since 1973 (in
real terms). Families can’t afford
child care, but they also can’t afford
to have mothers not work. The solution many decide upon is to have
Mom stay at home and work in whatever ways are possible and in whatever hours are available.

POSTSCRIPT Editorial
PEGGY
NOONAN
AMERICA’S OLDEST CONTINUOUSLY PUBLISHED DAILY NEWSPAPER
Subway Buck-Passing
Last Friday’s papers were filled with news of
Gov. Cuomo’s fight with Mayor de Blasio over
who’s supposed to pay for subway repairs.
Meanwhile, riders were fretting over something
else: a derailed rush-hour Q train that prompted
yet new misery.
Workers had to evacuate 135 riders; service was suspended on parts of the Q and B lines. And that was
just the latest of the near-daily subway mishaps (derailments, track fires, signal problems) that justify
Cuomo’s term “the Summer of Hell.”
Consider the disconnect: To the pols, it’s all about
shifting blame and demanding someone else foot
the bill. Riders? They just want to get where they’re
going.
Take Cuomo’s assertion Thursday that “it’s the
city’s legal obligation” to fund the subway — “even
though we stepped in on a moral level.” (That followed his preposterous claim some weeks back that
he has little control over the MTA.)
Cuomo asked folks to “look at the law,” which he
says gives the city ownership of the transit system
and makes it “solely responsible for funding” the subways.
Others disagree, but in any event, recent practice
has been for Albany to pick up the bulk of the tab.
Anyway, even MTA boss Joe Lhota, who backed
Cuomo’s legal assertions, admitted that riders
couldn’t care less about which pol has to pony up.
And why should they? Truth is, riders themselves
cover 58 percent of the cost of their rides — with their
fares. And while the city, state and feds cover the
rest with public dollars, most of that money comes
from taxpayers who live in New York City or the
surrounding areas served by the MTA.
More important, as the Manhattan Institute’s Nicole Gelinas tweeted last week, the “MTA’s problems today (the ones people notice) have nothing
to do with money.” Rather, it’s the agency’s “operational failures” that are at fault.
And even money issues are related to how the
subways are run: After all, if the agency made better use of the funds it already gets, it wouldn’t need
as much.
Transit employees, for instance, enjoy lucrative
pay and benefits, compared to comparable workers. Control that and Cuomo and de Blasio would
have less cause to fight over funding. (In an MI report due out next week, Gelinas takes a hard look
at MTA costs; no doubt, it’ll shed light on the
agency’s real money problems.)
Still, some officials, like MTA board member Peter Ward, immediately went to the old standby: tax
New Yorkers more.
Please. Only eight years ago, Albany supposedly
bailed out the agency with two new levies: a 50cent taxi surcharge and a payroll tax. That was on
top of the numerous other taxes meant for the
MTA.
Sure, more money could help fix the subways.
But not if it’s wasted — while the pols spend all
their time passing the buck.
America’s Energy Wins
Forget all the whining over President
Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord and
claims America isn’t doing its share on warming. Truth is, this nation’s role as a leader in the
war on climate-change continues to grow.
Even better, as Energy Secretary Rick Perry noted
last week, America is also emerging as a top energy
producer: “American innovation and technology
is driving the success — and it’s not some international agreement,” he said.
Fact is, the nation is cutting carbon emissions,
making advances on clean-energy production and
leading the world in renewables. Between 2000 and
2014, per-capita US emissions plunged nearly 20
percent — from 5.4 metric tons to 4.4.
All this amid rising emissions in the rest of world,
notes Fatih Birol, of the International Energy
Agency. America is also the “second-largest market
for solar globally.”
Meanwhile, Team Trump has adopted an “all-ofthe-above” approach to energy production, backing
oil, gas, coal, nuclear, renewables, fracking — heck,
probably hamsters on wheels if they could gin up
enough juice.
The goal, says Perry, echoing Trump’s remarks

last month, is global “energy dominance.” He cites
exports of liquid natural gas, Atlantic and Arctic
Ocean oil and coal as particularly promising.
Indeed, America has already seen jumps in coal
exports to Europe, India and South Korea. And after
decades of importing natural gas, the US is now set
to become a net exporter of gas, possibly this year.
For that, thank the fracking boom that’s enriching
states like Pennsylvania and Texas. (New York also
has natural gas, but to please enviros, Gov. Cuomo
banned fracking.)
The good news for America doesn’t end there: US
energy exports are reducing world dependence on
oil and gas from bad actors — notably, Russia and
Middle East OPEC countries. Ukraine, for example,
may soon use US coal to make up for Russia’s cuts
in the natural gas it supplies.
Of course, the greenies oppose all fossil-fuel use,
and never mind the economic and political fallout
from scrapping it.
But here’s the bottom line: The climate-change
gains here far eclipse those elsewhere, even as the
nation’s energy independence grows. So forget
greenie whining; Americans can rejoice over some
truly encouraging energy news.

THE ART
Trump will lose
support if he
doesn’t start
leading — and
getting results
T was a political drubbing of the
first order. A new Republican
president and a Republican Senate and House put everything
they had into a bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare, and couldn’t do
it. The leadership is rocked. The
president looks confused and hapless, while publicly enacting determination and a scolding tone toward
those who’d let him down. He rarely
showed signs of fully understanding
the details or even the essentials of
the plan he backed. His public remarks were all over the place: He’ll
let ObamaCare collapse of its own
weight; he’ll replace it with something big and beautiful; just repeal
it; no, let it collapse. He criticized
Hill Republicans: They “never discuss how good their health-care bill
is.” But neither did he, not in a persuasive way.
Republicans on the Hill need a popular president with the quasi-mystical
clout presidential popularity brings.
Trump does not have it. They need
someone who has a serious understanding of his own policies and can gently
knock heads together. I remember the
story of a GOP senator whose vote President Reagan badly needed. Reagan met
with him privately, pressed hard, the
senator squirmed: I just can’t do it, Mr.
President. You know I’d jump out of a
plane if you asked me, but — Reagan
leaned in and said: “Jump.” The senator
laughed and gave up. I’m going to tell
anecdotes like this until I feel better.
It is true that a central dynamic of the
failure was the truism that once people
are given an entitlement, they aren’t
keen to see it taken away. But another
reason some senators voted to repeal
ObamaCare in the past and refused now
is they believe the ground has shifted.
Back in their home states, in the almost-decade since the economic crash
of 2008, and since the Obama era, what
they’ve seen is more need, not less,
more anxiety and dysfunction and more
public skepticism that change will constitute improvement. In politics you
have to know how to read the ground,
the real topography. You can’t just go by
the work of past mapmakers, you have
to see clearly what’s there now. It’s unconservative not to.
As for Trump, the first six months of
his presidency suggest many things, including that what made him is thwarting
him. He is a man alone, independent and
ungoverned. He freelances not because
circumstances dictate it but because he
is by nature a freelancer. He doesn’t
want to be enmeshed in an institution,
he doesn’t want to have to bolster and
defend it and see to its life. He wants to
preserve his freedom — to tweet, to pop
off, to play it this way or that.
One of the interesting things about his
New York Times interview this week
was that he met with the reporters alone
save for his aide Hope Hicks. Afterward
members of his own White House reportedly had to scramble to get tapes so
they’d know what the boss said.
But presidential leadership involves
being to some degree an institution
man, upholding not only a presidency
but a government, even its other
branches. He doesn’t understand this.
In any case he doesn’t do it. It is all a
personal drama. This aspect of his nature will probably make further legislative failures inevitable. In time,
though no one in the White House
seems to fear this, it will lead to his diminished support.
His supporters will likely never hate
him, and won’t be severely disillusioned
because they weren’t all that illusioned.
They’ll probably always appreciate him
for blasting open the system and saving
them from normality — i.e., the dumb,
going-through-the-motions cynicism
of Washington. They are sympathetic
because of everything he is up against
— every established power center in
Washington — with no one behind him
but his original supporters.
But at some point baseline political
competence is going to become part of
the story. If the president continues to
show he doesn’t have the toolbox for
this job, he’s going to go from not gaining support, which is where he is now,
to losing support. He’s not magic and

they’re not stupid.
As for health care, Sen. John McCain, recovering from surgery, had it
right: “One of the major problems
with ObamaCare was that it was written on a strict party-line basis and
driven through Congress without a
single Republican vote,” McCain said
in a statement. “As this law continues
to crumble in Arizona and states
across the country, we must not repeat
the original mistakes that led to
ObamaCare’s failure.” Congress, he
said, must return to regular order, hold
hearings, work across party lines, “and
heed the recommendations of our nation’s governors.”
Trump should have done this from
the beginning.
Is there any legitimate hope of a bipartisan solution? It can be fairly argued, as Jim Geraghty does in National
Review, that a Democratic Party that
relentlessly lied to pass ObamaCare —
you can keep your plan, you can keep
your doctor, premiums will go down
— is unlikely to consider conservative
reform ideas in good faith. Democrats
will press to keep individual and employer mandates and the status quo on
Medicaid; they’ll want billions in higher
subsidies to get insurers back into failing exchanges. Some will want more
money to offset larger-than-expected
claims for insurance companies in the
state and federal marketplaces, some
will want single-payer. Geraghty: “Conservatives who oppose government
mandates, subsidies, bailout and staterun health care won’t like any of that.”
They won’t.
And yet no fix or improvement in
health care is going to be broadly accepted unless it comes from both parties. No reform will be accepted unless
it’s produced in a way that includes
public hearings in which representatives make the case and explain it all.
And any fix, because of America’s current political nature, will be temporary. Democratic presidential hopefuls
will be campaigning two years from
now on single-payer, whatever happens with this bill.
And health care in battered, anxious
America will continue to play against
Republicans.
Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia
Democrat, beats the drum for the bipartisan approach. His logic: The ACA
is wobbly; if nothing is done “prices
will get outrageous and people will revolt and rebel.”
“Why inflict this much pain?” he says
in a telephone interview. “The elderly,
the vulnerable — you’re scaring the
bejesus out of them.” The Republicans,
he says, have tried everything else.
“Why don’t you sit down and work
with us?” He too asks for regular order.
Yes, he says, some Democrats see
this as an opportunity to go for singlepayer, but that would be “a big change”:
“If you want to talk about that, do a
working group.” For now, Manchin
says, both parties should focus on
Medicare, Medicaid, the private market, pre-existing conditions — issues
on which quick or clear progress can
be made. He notes that the Senate has
11 members who are former governors.
As executive branch veterans with onthe-ground experience, they’ve
learned what works and what doesn’t.
They’re mostly moderate, not extreme.
Get them in on this, he urges. “We still
have some reasonable people here,” he
says. “Some are just a little too quiet.”

Crime cop-out
As if his alleged killing of Justine Damond wasn’t evil enough,
Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor (a public servant)
won’t even tell us his side of the
story, even after the victim’s parents and fiancé begged him to
lessen their pain by giving an explanation (“Cop-slay vic’s 911

If it was an accident, the cop
should say so. Each day, this case
gets more and more inexcusable.
We see this same story every
week in every state, and the cop
accused remains silent every
time. This pattern cannot be ignored. Yet our politicians continue to ignore it.

eatery that was above her socialcomfort level.
Instead of being a true friend
and helping this woman order
her meal, Brooks decided to use
her discomfort and lack of culinary vocabulary for fodder for
his newspaper.
How can these two people
consider each other friends? Or
is Brooks perpetrating some fake

Talented teachers
The Post once again missed
the point in its recent teacherbashing editorial (“The Kids
Lose Again,” July 11).
Talented teachers whose
schools have been closed or
downsized will fill vacant classrooms in their chosen subjects
this fall.
Members of the Absent
Teacher Reserve pool will also
continue to play a valuable role
in schools by filling in for teachers who are sick or on another
form of leave.
By doing so, members of the
pool reduce the need for the Department of Education to hire
outside long-term substitutes,
each of whom can cost the system as much as $1,500 a week.
The real problem facing city
schools is the thousands of
teachers in good standing who
walk out the door every year for
other systems or other professions because of large classes,
lack of supplies and managers
who do not support their efforts
to help children learn.

York. Makes me wonder what
he’s been promised by the de
Blasio administration.
De Blasio is the worst mayor
we’ve had for many years. His
apparent disregard for the city,
his bad choices and his selfish
and inept actions are clearly reasons for us to fire him and begin
anew with someone else this
November. Fellow voters, come
out and vote against de Blasio.
We deserve so much better.

FOUL
HALL!
Cooperstown is guilty of hypocrisy
and double standards by embracing
Babe Ruth but rejecting Barry Bonds
by LARRY GETLEN
W
HEN the Baseball Hall of
Fame inducts five new
members next Sunday,
Barry Bonds and Roger
Clemens will be absent once
again, shunned for using performance enhancing drugs (PEDs).
And that, according to baseball
writer Jay Jaffe, is totally unfair.
Even Babe Ruth reportedly injected himself with an extract derived
from sheep testicles in a misguided
attempt to boost his skills, writes Jaffe
in his new book “The Cooperstown
Casebook: Who’s in the Baseball Hall
of Fame, Who Should Be In, and Who
Should Pack Their Plaques” (Thomas
Dunne Books).
Jaffe argues that the greats of
baseball’s PED era — especially
Bonds, the sport’s all-time home-run
king, and Clemens, one of the greatest pitchers ever — deserve to have
their names enshrined at Cooperstown because, among other reasons, many earlier players also did
drugs but were still inducted.
“The first known attempt of a ballplayer using a testosterone-based
performance enhancer dates back to
1889,” Jaffe writes, “when Pud Galvin,
already the first pitcher to reach 300
wins, openly used ‘Brown-Sequard
Elixir’ via subcutaneous injection.”
This elixir claimed to “impede the
aging process and boost strength
and virility.” It was developed using
“an extract from monkey testicles,”
and was soon regarded as a rip-off.
Still, Galvin’s use of it was not just
open but encouraged.
“If there still be doubting Thomases who concede no virtue to the
elixir,” wrote The Washington Post
at the time, “they are respectfully referred to Galvin’s record in yester-
day’s Boston-Pittsburgh game.”
Galvin was elected to the Hall of
Fame by baseball’s Veterans Committee in 1965, with no hand-wringing
over what he might have injected into
his body. The latter can also be said
for Ruth, even if his injection of the
extract from sheep testicles in 1925
led to “an ulcer that required surgery
and cost him the first 41 games of the
season.” (The Yankees told the media
that Ruth had a “bellyache.”)
“Those isolated incidents underscore the fact that PED use by baseball
players evolved over decades within
a culture of both competitiveness and
permissiveness,” writes Jaffe.
M
ORE damning is that amphetamine use was widespread in
baseball from the late 1950s
through the 1960s. Pills known as
greenies — “used to fight fatigue and
gain physical and mental edges” —
were “widely available” in clubhouses.
“Hall of Famers from Willie Mays,
Mickey Mantle and Hank Aaron to
Mike Schmidt, Johnny Bench, Willie
Stargell, and Frank Thomas have
been connected to amphetamines,
some by their own accounts, and
they were hardly alone,” writes Jaffe.
“We generally don’t wring our
hands about their usage — which
helped keep players in the lineup
and closer to the tops of their games
— both because the pills were commonplace and because there were
no real deterrents in place, even after
these drugs were regulated via the
Controlled Substances Act of 1970.”
Even steroids themselves, basically the same drugs considered the
scourge of baseball over the past two
decades, were used openly prior to
that period. A former pitcher named
Tom House told a reporter that performance-enhancing drugs “were
widespread in the game in the 1960s
and ’70s,” Jaffe writes.
“‘We were doing steroids they
wouldn’t give to horses,’ he said, estimating that six or seven pitchers per
team were experimenting with steroids or human growth hormone. ‘We
didn’t get beat, we got out-milligrammed. And when you found out
what they were taking, you started
taking them.’”
By the turn of the millennium, the
use of PEDs in baseball was shockingly high. In a 2002 Sports Illustrated cover story, 1996 National
League MVP Ken Caminiti pegged
the percentage of major leaguers using steroids to “at least half.” Former
outfielder Chad Curtis gave a figure
of “40-50 percent,” while Jose
Canseco, who would later name steroid users in his memoir, claimed it
was closer to 85 percent.
In 2004, players started getting
tested for substances; those who
transgressed were dealt fines and
suspensions, but their records never
suffered a dent. No player suspended for PEDs “has had his statistics disavowed or expunged,” Jaffe
writes, and “none has been banned
for life for his offense” with just one
exception (Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia, banned in 2016 after his third
positive test for PEDs).
Bonds, for example, still holds the
official record for most lifetime
home runs (762) and is still fully eligible to participate in baseball in any
capacity. Why then, Jaffe reasons,
should Hall of Fame voters treat him
as if he’s ineligible?

An ALS death sentence gave me a new life — and more kids
I
’VE had ALS for four years.
My original prognosis gave me
three to four years to live, but
since I chose to go on a home
ventilator, against all prevailing
medical advice, that has changed.
I’m past the four years and back
out into the unknown, just where
I want to be.
And now the love of my life is
pregnant. We are alive.
My willy works. It’s that simple.
The day I found out that ALS
didn’t affect my penis was a red-letter day. Unlike a spinal injury or condition, ALS does not take away any
feeling from my body. It removes my
ability to send messages to my muscles to move. But as the penis is not
a muscle, it is unaffected.
Other things remain. My eyes.
Some of my facial muscles. I can still
move a tiny muscle in my left hand.
Just a twitch. But my wife, Ruth, and
our boys like to hold my hand while
I move it, ever so slightly. It is a physical connection, however small. My
son Raife calls it my imping.
Ruth and I treasure the physical
connection we still have. And we had
decided, privately, to try for another
child to add to our three sons. The
ultimate expression of being alive.
We go into Dublin’s Holles Street
Hospital for our first scan. Our eldest, Jack, was born here six years
ago in the basement. I will never forget. People’s feet passing in the window. My first born.
We are in the room, the midwife,
Ruth and I. Ruth’s stomach being

You’re joking, Ruth says. The woman

off the floor. In the back with me is
my friend Cait from Limerick. Crazy.
Has me in stitches most of the time.
In the front is my brother-in-law,
Pierre-Yves. French. Crazy. Drives
like a madman. But he’s not driving
today. He’s on the phone to his
mother, speaking in a rapid rush of
French. It’s her birthday. My mother
is driving. Crazy. Drives like a madwoman. I’m on my way to the hospital. Ruth’s Caesarean is taking place
at 12. It’s 20 to 12.
I’m nervous. In my stomach. I’ve
been on this road before but nothing
changes. Pierre-Yves turns from the
front, his phone still pressed to his
ear, and says, Mum says, did you
know that Caesarean got its name
because Caesar was the first child
to be born that way?
No, I didn’t know that. He slips
back into the silk of spoken French.
Caesar, I think. Caesar was born that
way. OK. The nerves in my stomach
ease a little. We’re approaching Holles Street.
They are waiting for us at the doors.
Whisk us upstairs. My amazing people dress me in surgical gown, hat.
Time has stopped. I enter the room.
Ruth is on the table. The medical
team are beyond amazing, ushering
me in, helping me get into the best
possible position beside Ruth (Ruth
later tells me if I had moved back and
forth once more she was going to kill
me [I was nervous]). They start.
Ruth holds my hand. I watch everything. Sadie comes out feet first,
screaming, blue. Then Hunter, bum
high in the air but silent. Ruth and
I look at each other. They lay him beside Sadie and he lets out a roar.
Ruth and I start to cry.
My extraordinary wife. I wouldn’t
change ALS. Those two babies in my
arms. Their warmth against me. Rising and falling with my breath. I
wouldn’t risk that for anything.
Eucharist means thanksgiving.
That’s how I feel. Thank you, Caesar.
Thank you, all who watched over
Ruth and Sadie and Hunter. I send
out a thank you. A beacon. Something. From as deep as you can go. To
as far as you can reach. I will hold this
day inside me for the rest of my life.
Some days you can just see clearly.
Our meaning, what we value, is the
most private part of us. It may just define us. It shapes everything we do,
everything we say, everything we feel,
everything we dream. It’s hidden,
from others, from ourselves. There
is no mirror to show us what we
value. So often it is only revealed to
us after the fact, in the long movie reel
of memory. And when we see it, our
heart stops, aching with recognition.
It is a beautiful thing to see yourself.

HERETICAL
From the word or phrase above, form at
least 39 five-letter words, without using
more than one form of the same word.
For example, drink or drank, not both.
Bridge
Cy the Cynic continues to have
weight issues. He loses two
pounds and gains three back.
“You should make a serious effort to lose,” I told Cy in the club
lounge. “Take a look at yourself.
Mirrors don’t lie.”
“Luckily,
they
can’t laugh either,”
the Cynic said.
In a team match,
Cy sat West at his
table. He wasn’t
laughing after today’s deal ended,
but everyone else
was. Against three
clubs, Cy led a
trump, and South
drew trumps and
huddled. He knew
East had a spade
honor — surely the
king. If Cy had held
the A-K or K-Q , his
opening lead would have been a
high spade. East also had the
queen of trumps, so to have the
16 points his 1NT opening bid
promised, Cy needed every
other missing honor.
So instead of leading the seven
of diamonds and hoping Cy
jumped up with the ace, or hoping for an unlikely end play,
South went for a swindle: He led
a low heart!
The Cynic eyed that card
warily, but he couldn’t believe
declarer would lead away from
the K-Q of hearts.
So Cy played low,
and dummy’s ten
won. South lost a
heart, a diamond
and two spades,
making three for
plus 110, and everybody except Cy had
a good laugh.
Cy loses on the
deal even if he beats
three clubs. At the
other table, EastWest competed to
three spades. After
South for Cy’s team
cashed two clubs, a
devious shift to a LOW heart
would have given the defense a
chance. But South actually led the
queen of diamonds. Declarer took
the ace, drew trumps, lost a diamond to North’s king and threw
a heart on dummy’s good diamond, making three for plus 140.

First read the list of words, then look at the puzzle. The words are in all directions vertically, horizontally, diagonally, backward. Circle each letter of a word found and
strike it off the list. The letters are often used more than once, so do not cross them
out. It’s best to find the big words first. When you find all the words listed in the clues,
you’ll have a number of letters left over that spell out the Wonderword.

ARTY Byrde (Jason
Bateman) is a wanted
man. A Chicago financial adviser whose
secret life as a
money launderer has aroused
the curiosity of the Feds and the
animosity of a drug cartel boss
who wonders why $8 million is
missing, Marty has retreated to
the Ozarks with his wife, Wendy
(Laura Linney), and two kids to
make things right again. But the
Byrdes have attracted the wrong
kind of attention from the Langmores, a local family of thieves.
And an undercover FBI agent
has moved into a nearby motel
to better assess the situation. So,
Marty can’t afford to make one
false move.
“Arrested Development” star
Bateman, 48, spoke to The Post
about “Ozark,” on which he also
serves as an executive producer
and director.
Was Marty always corrupt or
did he become that way?
Family of thieves
goes underground
on ‘Ozark’
Whatever he is now, I think
he’s always been. I don’t think
he would consider himself corrupt. I think he sees himself as
really bright. The problem is that
he’s not superbright. If he was
superbright, he’d never be down
[in the Ozarks]. He would have
done something to mitigate his
risk even more.
be a little too much to take on.
Why is Marty still watching
that video of his wife having
sex with another man?
The way in which it was shot
and paced and written and
performed. I like that it’s got a
10-second title sequence so you
don’t sit through credits before
every episode.
If it was the first time [Wendy]
had done this, he would be
shocked and outraged. But it’s
been going on awhile and he’s
put a private eye on it. He now
has proof. I think it’s a melancholy example of some sort of
domestic defeat.
How was Marty different from
your other roles?
He’s not that different. That’s
what I liked about him. [Playing]
Marty wouldn’t take away from
my main draw to this project: the
oversight part of it. The directing
and executive-producing. If I were
playing a “character,” that would
Did you bring on Scottish actor
Peter Mullan from “Top of the
Lake” to play the villain?
Yes. I was determined to get
him. He was a big get for us. That
was the [inspiration] that I used
for this show, “Top of the Lake.”
Why is that?
Is there a plan in place to keep
“Ozark” going?
We’ve got great things that
[head writer] Chris Mundy and
his staff have keyed up that we
can go to in the second year if we
get one. If we don’t, they’ve also
closed things up, so there’s not
that obnoxious cliffhanger that
baits the audience into a second
year and frustrates them if there
isn’t one. We really wanted to
close this up and treat it as a
10-chapter film.

 CANCER
(June 22-July 23)
A work colleague will try to stop
you from making a success of
whatever project you are working
on over the next few days. Why?
Because they are afraid you will do
something remarkable and make
them look second rate. They're
right, you will.

An exorbitantly paid CEO may not mean money up in smoke.
A new study shows extreme chief executive pay ratios have
a more positive effect on companies’ financial results. Here
are the CEO pay ratios of several top-tier organizations:
By ED ZWIRN
When is paying the boss too
much, too much?
There is mounting public concern over the rapid growth in
compensation of those in the top
spot at companies compared with
that of the average worker.
Critics say that high CEO pay in
relation to the average employee’s
actually harms firms by damaging
worker morale and signaling that
management is looking to extract
all it can.
But a new research paper to be
presented at the American Accounting Association’s annual
meeting next month in San Diego
comes to pretty much the opposite conclusion.
Using a database of 817 firms to
get information on pay ratios —
which show the relationship between CEO pay and that of the median worker in a given company —
the researchers found that, on average, companies with high wage disparities (defined as having a CEO/
worker pay ratio in the upper 15th
percentile) show a return on assets
13 percent higher than their more
egalitarian counterparts.
The authors, Qian Cheng, Tha-

Don’t look now, but money managers haven’t been this underweight in US equities since the
days leading up to the financial
crisis back in 2008.
Asset allocations for US stocks
have reached 20 percent underweight, according to Bank of
America Merrill Lynch’s most recent fund manager survey. Meaning that one-fifth of all money
managers are bearish on US
stocks at the current levels.
The last time that percentage
was greater was in January of
2008, when the S&P 500 Index
was near its previous peak before
crashing during the financial crisis.
“A net 80 percent of investors
think the US is the most overvalued region,” strategists, led by
Michael Hartnett, wrote, down
only slightly from the 84 percent
that said the same thing in June’s
survey.
The survey was conducted July
7 through July 13 and based on 207
participants overseeing $586 billion in assets.
Investors said the Nasdaq index
was the most crowded trade for
the third straight month.
Banks overtook tech stocks as
the most overweighted sector in
the survey.
That suggests that investors
might be trying to lock in profits
and find greater value elsewhere.
The Nasdaq Composite is up almost 20 percent this year, while
the KBW Bank Index has risen 4
percent. It’s the first time this year
that money managers have favored banks over technology
stocks.
When naming the biggest risks
to the markets right now, the three
biggest tail risks cited in the survey were a crash in global bond
markets, the Federal Reserve or
European Central Bank making a
policy mistake and Chinese credit
tightening.
Despite continued gridlock in
Washington, risks that moved
lower on the spectrum included
delays to tax reform and a trade
war, the survey found.

rindra Ranasinghe and Sha Zhao,
find in their paper that the high
wage disparities currently seen at
many US companies are actually
“positively associated with both
firm value and performance.”
The results compare the CEO
pay ratios to the financial results
of the following year. The authors,
while admitting that their study
skips a discussion of “fairness and
social equity,” conclude that the
high paychecks for those at the
top reflect “the true cost of attracting talent.”
This academic exercise, and
others like it that are probably in
the research pipeline, is likely to
play a key role in the intense
policy debates over implementation and enforcement of regulations under the Trump administration.
One of these, coming out of the
Dodd-Frank Act, would require
that companies disclose their
CEO pay ratios, a provision that
has been fought tooth-and-nail.
“I’m still trying to figure out who
is interested in this other than labor unions and the media,” Peter
Gleason, president of the National
Association of Corporate Directors, told CFO magazine.
Implementation of the rule has
been delayed until 2018, assuming
it survives a review by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Brandon Rees, deputy director
of the AFL-CIO’s office of investment, says that while he disagrees
with the conclusions of the paper,
he intends to use the results to
strengthen the case for pay ratio
implementation.
“The study itself indicates that
pay ratios are statistically important,” he says with a touch of
irony.
“This strengthens the case for
disclosure.”
Yellen’s opioid remarks smack of hypocrisy
Michael
Gray
ED chief Janet Yellen
in congressional testiF
mony recently suggested
that the opioid epidemic
hitting the Ohio Valley
states and elsewhere could
be contributing to the historically low workforce participation rates for men.
While drug use and abuse
is a public policy program,
the Fed has now dipped its
toe into the debate.
“I do think it is related to
declining labor force participation among prime-age
workers,” Yellen told senators last week about the crisis.
However, here is the key
idea: “I don’t know if it’s
causal or if it’s a symptom
of long-running economic
maladies that have affected
these communities and particularly affected workers
who have seen their job opportunities decline,” Yellen
continued.
While the Fed was bailing out the banks with its
once-in-a-lifetime QE programs, middle America
was running out of unem-
ployment benefits, on the
verge of losing their homes
and struggling to stay
afloat.

There are recent stories
of doctors in the area prescribing millions of opioid
pills over the period in
question. This is what happens when the treatment is
discontinued, but the addiction is too strong.
So it seems a bit disingenuous for Yellen & Co. to say
if their job-creation policy
shortcomings — the low
participation rates of males
in the Cleveland Fed’s area
— may be attributed to opioid addiction of the workforce.
The Fed knows how to

time with the victims of
that policy when they need

Q2
By TREY WILLIAMS
SNIPPED: The
trend toward
cable cord-cutting
persists.
Cable TV is staring down the barrel of
the gun, as the second quarter is expected
to feature dismal subscriber trends for
the pay-TV industry.
The second quarter is a historically
weak one for media companies, and as
streaming competition continues to intensify and the cord-cutting trend persists, analysts have low expectations for
the quarter.
Wells Fargo analyst Marci Ryvicker
forecasts total pay-TV subscriber declines of 1.28 million in the second quarter.
“It’s not a great environment, but it
feels like expectations are low enough,”
Ryvicker wrote in a note to clients.
Evercore analyst Vijay Jayant agreed
that second-quarter subscriber losses are
expected to be higher than the roughly
800,000 subscribers lost in the first quarter and the 760,000 lost during the second quarter a year ago. Jayant expects the
industry to lose about 1.09 million subscribers.
“We believe that the second quarter is
the first quarter in which pay TV net
losses exceeded the 1 million mark,”
Jayant wrote in a note to investors.
“While Q2 is seasonally the weakest
quarter of the year, we expect results to
show continued pressure on the segment
due to cord-cutting and the growth in
cord-nevers.”
The second quarter is seasonally weak
due to the content slate and changes in
watching behavior caused by the change
in the weather.
But new competition has also done its
share of damage. The industry saw the
launch of two new live TV streaming
services during the quarter: Google’s
YouTube TV and Hulu Live TV from the
streaming service owed by Disney, Twenty-First Century Fox, Comcast and Time
Warner.
“Before the second quarter valuation
collapse, we believe cord-cutting exposure was already largely priced into
shares, as the group was trading at a more
substantial 3.5 times discount to the market,” Jayant wrote.

Jeff Bezos’ Amazon, on the
other hand, has enjoyed broad
and massive reach and acceptance, as shoppers have become
comfortable with shopping online, and has come to dominate
the e-tail landscape.
The deal is undeniably a victory
for Sears, even if it turns out to be
no more than a public relations
maneuver for Amazon.
Sears, which has its own stores
— too many of them, in fact —
teamed up with Amazon in order
to help Kenmore broaden its
reach to the millennial generation, according to Kenmore President Tom Park.
While Sears’ stock initially
jumped more than 20 percent on
the news Thursday morning, the
stock eventually settled down,
closing up 10 percent.
In contrast, Amazon’s stock basically yawned. Perspective is
important here — the deal has
the potential to be a meaningful
plus for Sears.
In what essentially amounts to
an experiment for Amazon, expanding its selling into a broader
range of appliances may be the
last chance for Sears and the
Kenmore brand to survive.
Today, there is no doubt Amazon is the 800-pound gorilla of
retail — and it would likely take
King Kong to save Sears from extinction.
That said, numerous photos of
newly beefed-up Bezos were circulating on social media last

The Answer Man
Dear John: In 2010, lacking
work as a senior software engineer, I worked as a quality
clerk for the Census Bureau.
The main software package
for running the census that
year, called “PBOCS” internally, was so buggy that in the
Denver office we were only
allowed to run five PBOCS
stations at one time.
The software had so many
problems that Census came
up with workarounds in
which we used bar-code scanners to get questionnaires
into Excel spreadsheets.
The system was not competently written or engineered
for performance.
I mention all this because
you are covering the work on
the 2020 Census. So I suggest
you keep an eye on whether
the 2020 software is built by
the same group of clowns that
built the software for the last
census. M.B.
Dear M.B.: The decennial
census is crucial to the country.
It determines the number of
House members for each state.
Also, the amount of money each
state gets from the feds.
And, since you’ve been reading

for children being exploited
on social media.
My 12-year-old daughter
was on the app Houseparty,
where she would keep in
touch with all of her friends
this summer.
She got bumped off the app
and did not know how to get
back on. She soon got a text
saying she could be “helped”
back on.
It was from a pedophile, who
wanted her to do different naked poses and to call her in order to get her back on the app.
She does not have Facebook
or Twitter, and we have

warnings and discussions.
We are very proactive on her
social media.
Pedophiles can reach any

the parents for pedophile

Money market rates worth a look
Dear John, I suggest you mention to
your readers the much higher yields
available in money market accounts —
1.3 percent at CIT; 1.24 percent at Popular Community Bank; 1.11 percent at Everbank and others — compared with the
abysmally low rates in regular checking
accounts, such as JPMorganChase’s .01
percent or Wells Fargo’s .03 percent.
Some money market accounts require
only a $500 minimum.
Goldman Sachs offers a 1.2 percent an-
nual percentage yield (APY) and only a
$1 minimum deposit.
State Bank of Texas offers 1.55 percent
APY on accounts with more than
$100,000 on deposit.
This is not the highest that I have found.
Northpointe Bank offers 5 percent on
checking, but requires many debit transactions per month, more than I am prepared to change my lifestyle to make.
True, you are limited by federal rules
on MMA to a total of six checks or ACH
bank-to-bank transfer each month, but
the liquidity and increased-interest-rate
APY makes it worthwhile. R.K.
Dear R.K.: Thanks for the information.
Checking accounts have never paid much.
So the main point here is to keep only enough
money in your checking account to pay bills.
There are a number of places online where
you can see the highest rates paid on savings
accounts as well as the best deals on mortgages. I’d recommend you take a look at BankRate.com for that information.

Sandals on Wall Street
Resort eyeing big $$$
By EZRA FIESER
A major Caribbean resort is taking a seaplane up north to land
some big capital on Wall Street.
Sandals Resorts International
is looking to help finance as
many as a dozen new Caribbean
hotels, as the luxury resort manager ditches its conservative
strategy of building just one
project per year and keeping
debt down.
Chief Executive Adam Stewart,
who runs Sandals with his father,
Gordon “Butch” Stewart, said the
closely held company is not for
sale and has no immediate plans
to go public, contrary to rumors.
Instead, it’s looking beyond the
regional island banks it has traditionally used, to fund the biggest
expansion in its history.
“We’re open to taking on more
debt to build more than one hotel at a time. We want to build
three or four hotels a year,”
Stewart said in an interview.
“We are trying to look for big-
ger capital to grow. We know exactly what to do and how to do it.
But up until now, we’ve been restricted by the balance sheet of
regional banks.”
The company, which owns and
operates 23 resorts across seven
Caribbean islands, is in talks with
Deutsche Bank and others to raise
money as it weighs the new projects, including four hotels it plans
to build next year, Stewart said.
While he declined to say how
much he is seeking to borrow,
the company next year is spending about $375 million to build a
580-room Barbados hotel and
around $500 million to construct
a resort on the island of Tobago
in the southern Caribbean.
“We’re not looking at $200 million any more,” he said.
With its expansion, Sandals is
aiming to capitalize on a Caribbean tourism boom.
A record 29.3 million tourists
visited the islands last year, according to the Caribbean Tourism Organization. And 41,000

new rooms are under construction or being planned in the region, said STR, which tracks the
industry, up more than 40 percent from a year earlier.
The increase was led by several major projects, such as a
2,000-room casino hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica, and a 934room beach resort in Varadero,
Cuba, STR said.
Sandals, the biggest private employer in Jamaica, targets the luxury vacation market. The average
daily rate across its portfolio of
6,000 rooms is around $550, according to Stewart. It’s opening
over-the-water suites in Jamaica
and St. Lucia that come with a
dedicated butler and around-theclock service for as much as
$3,000 a night.

these digital coins are built, says it’s
time for things to cool down in a big
way.
“People say ICOs are great for
ethereum because, look at the price,
but it’s a ticking time bomb,”
Charles Hoskinson, who helped develop ethereum, said in an interview.
“There’s an over-tokenization of
things as companies are issuing tokens when the same tasks can be
achieved with existing blockchains.
People are blinded by fast and easy
money.”

Long Islander Chris Weidman
got his stumbling career back
on track Saturday night by submitting Kelvin Gastelum in
front of an ecstatic home crowd
at the Nassau Coliseum at UFC
on FOX 25.
Fighting in front of 11,198 rabid
fans just a stone’s throw from
Hofstra University, where he became a two-time All-American
wrestler, Weidman (14-3) used
his 6-foot-2 frame to smother
the smaller Gastelum during the
main event.
Though they both made the
185-pound
weight
limit,
Weidman repeatedly rag dolled
Gastelum to the mat, and in the
third round he took the younger
man’s back before sinking in an
arm triangle choke. Gastelum
tapped at 3:45, snapping
Weidman’s three-fight losing
streak.
“What’s up Long Island!”
Weidman screamed in the cage
after the victory. “I’m baaack!”
Gastelum (13-4-0, 1 NC) gave
Weidman a gigantic early scare
when he landed a huge left hand
as time ticked down in the first
round. Weidman, who is from
Baldwin, dropped to the canvas,
but grabbed Gastelum’s leg and
was saved by the bell.
“I wanted 30 more seconds
and I could have finished the
fight. But these things happen,”
the 5-foot-9 Gastelum said before admitting that size was the
difference. “He felt really big.

fight at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday night.

He felt really strong.”
Heading into Saturday night,
Weidman was at a crossroads in
his career. After twice defeating
the legendary Anderson Silva,
Weidman built himself into a
13-0 middleweight champion
who was considered to be one of
the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. Then the
wheels came off and he lost
three straight times, starting
with losing the title to Luke
Rockhold in December 2015.
But by defeating Gastelum,
Weidman firmly re-established

Silva, Rockhold, interim champion Robert Whittaker and

“It feels like I won a championship,” Weidman said.“It feels

“I’m the champ, I’m the best in
the world and I think everyone
knows that,” he continued. “If
Bisping grows some balls … I’m

Furious rally from THRICE fell a length short. Claimed by Weaver who
plays the same hand. Late kicker graduated 2 back. SKYLINE DRIVE stayed to
run an off-the-turfer and closed late to earn diploma. Tough if we're off the
turf. B THREE was claimed by DiPrima after a poor start. Ran 3rd previous
pair this level. Turf maiden will have Arroyo in the irons. WAR CANOE hit the
board twice with this brand. WEEKEND HOTTIE broke thru on her 21st start.

* REC: Won-lost record of pitcher's team in games he has started.
Protect Stitches Blind Side
Sorry coach. I should have stopped when I heard the
whistle.
Where were you taking him son?
The bus. It was time for him to go home. ... End of the line
for Big Mike and Coach Burt Cotton. No one had their Blind
Side this week and now Michael Oher and Hugh Freeze are
going home. Oher is facing misdemeanor charges of assaulting an Uber driver and was released by the Panthers.
Freeze resigned as head coach at Ole Miss after reportedly
making a phone call to a female escort service. Bright side
for Oher is that he is no longer at Ole Miss. Then guardian
Leigh Anne Tuohy explains: “Michael, I want you to have a
good time, but if you get a girl pregnant I will drive up to
Oxford and cut off your penis.”
Closing credits could be rolling on Mets’ season as well.
Rafael Montero is in the rotation because, well, he’s
healthy. Struck out 18, walked five since getting a regular
turn. A’s are at Citi Field. 20 units on the Amazin’s.
Cubs win! Pitchers duel between Jon Lester and Adam
Wainwright till the eighth inning. Cardinals scored two in
the top of the eighth, but Cubs did them one better in the
bottom half. Anthony Rizzo providing the game winning
RBI. W restores our savings to 1,028 bullocks.

T
HE YANKEES said goodbye to last
year’s touted first-round pick.
Gone is another first-rounder, a
reclamation project who was posting a
2.62 ERA in High-A. Dealt away is an
outfield prospect who was emerging
even as the competition got stiffer in
Double-A.
Shipping off a few prospects also
served to show off just how deep the
Yankees go.
BEATING
THE
BUSHES
Mark W. Sanchez
In trading away Blake Rutherford, Ian
Clarkin and Tito Polo in the deal with
the White Sox on Tuesday night that
netted Todd Frazier, David Robertson
and Tommy Kahnle, the Yankees’ farm
system clearly took a hit — but more
graze than direct shot, according to
prospect gurus.
A system that MLB Pipeline and
Baseball Prospectus had as the second
best in baseball entering the season
hasn’t dropped far, if at all.
“It takes some time to kind of stack
the systems against each other,” Jim
Callis, a prospect expert with MLB
Pipeline, said by phone. “I still think
there’s no question the Yankees have a
top-three farm system in baseball,
along with the Braves and White Sox,
whatever order you want to put them.
“I don’t think there’s even question
the Yankees definitely have the deepest
farm system. I do our Yankees top-30
prospect list, and I’m not saying this
with any sense of hyperbole: I can easily rank 40 or 45 Yankees who belong
on most top-30 lists. Their farm system
is ridiculous. If you stretch the definition to include guys I kind of like and
can see them making the top-30 list
some day, you might be able to pull that
number up to 50 or 60.”
Jeffrey Paternostro, a senior prospect
writer of Baseball Prospectus, echoed
the thought.
“This stuff ebbs and flows,” Paternostro said. “They graduated [Aaron]
Judge and [Clint] Frazier — not officially yet, but he’ll probably get enough
at-bats [to no longer be considered a
prospect]. I think they’re still a top-five
farm system just because there’s so
much depth there.”
Rutherford, the jewel of the blockbuster, was the 18th-overall pick in 2016,
a 19-year-old who was holding his own
in Low-A Charleston. A toolsy lefthanded hitter, Rutherford’s only true
concern was power, having hit just two
home runs in 279 at-bats this season —
which would be problematic for someone who projects as a corner outfielder.
Still, a consensus top-flight prospect
who was maturing — and Polo, who was
tearing up Double-A — was deemed expendable primarily because of the players he would have to leapfrog.
Judge is an outfield fixture, Frazier
looks like one and Dustin Fowler is on
the mend. But it doesn’t stop there. Rutherford was not the most impressive, statwise, on his own Charleston team. Estevan Florial, a 19-year-old left-handed hitter who projects as a corner outfielder,
was slashing .288/.367/.484 entering Friday, with 11 home runs and 15 steals.
“Florial, along with Rutherford, is one
of the most amazing, exciting young
outfielders in the minors. Jorge Mateo
in all likelihood winds up in the outfield,” Callis said. “Jake Cave has had a
pretty good year in the upper minors.
He’s ready to fill in if needed. [Tyler] Wade. They just got one of the
best outfielders in the international market in Everson Pereira.”
Pereira, whom Baseball
America listed as the
fourth-best international
prospect, reportedly signed
for $1.5 million out of Venezuela earlier this month. They
also inked Anthony Garcia of
the Dominican Republic, an
outfielder ranked as the
28th-best prospect in this
year’s international freeagent class. As much as
the Yankees liked Rutherford and Polo, they have
given themselves so many
outfield options to turn
into major league players,
either through rising
through the system or
additional trades.
In Clarkin’s case, the
Yankees stood to lose
him, anyway. The 22year-old has dealt with
injury after injury since
being a 2013 first-round
pick, and would have
been eligible for this
winter’s Rule 5 draft if
the Yankees did not
protect him on the 40man roster. Which, because of that
depth, likely would not have happened.
Still, losing three quality prospects
would be difficult for any system to absorb. The Yankees, though, may be the
exception.
“The Yankees’ system is so loaded,”
Callis said, “that they can afford to
maybe trade a little more than other
teams might be comfortable with.”

With call-up on horizon, Dominic dominating at Vegas
By MARK W. SANCHEZ
Every Lucas Duda home
run and every Dominic
Smith at-bat seem to bring
the 22-year-old closer to
Citi Field.
It appears to be only a
matter of (rapidly shrinking) time the Mets’ No. 2
prospect makes his major
league debut, with the
team floundering and
MINOR
LEAGUE NOTES
likely selling at any moment. With Duda, a free
agent at season’s end,
likely on his way out, Smith
is celebrating the occasion
by turning what may be his
last days at Triple-A Las
Vegas into a party.
In 17 July games entering
Saturday, the 2013 firstround pick was 28-for-72
(.389) with five home runs
and 18 RBIs. In Smith’s past
33 games, he had a hit in all
but one. Every Triple-A
Las Vegas statistic comes
with the caveat that the Pacific Coast League is a hitter’s haven, but the lefty is
sizzling at the right time.
Tony DeFrancesco has
been an unfortunate wit-
ness to Smith’s rise.
“He’s pretty close [to major league ready], if not
ready now,” said the manager of the Fresno Grizzlies, whom Smith torched
in a four-game series this
week. “He’s been swinging
the bat pretty well. Dominating this league. ... Definitely a guy who looks like
one of the top hitters in
this league.”
DeFrancesco was impressed with how selective
Smith has become, with 33
walks to 66 strikeouts entering Saturday.
“We tried to pitch him in,
but he likes it out over the
plate,” DeFrancesco said.
“Very disciplined hitter,
very smart. You gotta attack him.”
On the year, Smith was
slashing .336/.391/.553 with
13 home runs, one shy of
his career best set last year.

Americans into
Gold Cup final
By STEPHEN HAWKINS
BIG SAVE-INGS: NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson
dives for one of his seven saves in his team’s 2-1 comeback
win over the Chicago Fire on Saturday.
Bill Kostroun
By KYLE SCHNITZER
Thankfully, there was a second
half.
An uninspiring — and frankly
boring — first half between New
York City FC and the Chicago Fire
was rewarded with fireworks, as
NYCFC, down a man, exploded in
the second half to trudge past Chicago, 2-1, on Saturday afternoon at
Yankee Stadium.
“I saw a team who didn’t want to
lose that game,” NYCFC coach
Patrick Vieira said. “Even when
we went down with ten men, the
team wanted to win and keep going forward. Of course, when you
play a team like [Chicago], you
have to suffer. We suffered a lot
today.”
After NYCFC dropped two
points in the final minute against
Toronto on Wednesday, it seemed
early on that nightmare was repeating itself.
Early recklessness came from
NYCFC midfielder Yangel Herrera, who received a yellow card
in the eighth minute and compounded his foolishness with a
second yellow just four minutes
later, when he stepped on Chicago
midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger’s ankle, and was sent off.
But second-place Chicago, who

had won six straight road matches
and didn’t play mid-week, slogged
like the day’s uptown B train to
Yankee Stadium, lackadaisically
controlling 61 percent of possession in the first half while registering just four total shots for ultimately snoozing soccer.
That gave NYCFC time to restructure, and once the halftime
whistle blew, NYCFC captain David Villa took advantage yet again.
The reigning MLS MVP continued
his marvelous run of form when
he one-timed a beautiful volley
from the top of Chicago’s box by
way of winger Jonathan Lewis’
slick pass, who registered his first
career assist.
Lewis, who hadn’t played since
March 18, started his first career
MLS match and performed well,
according to Vieira. But Lewis’s
performance captured the eye of
Villa, too.
“[Jonathan] Lewis was amazing,”
said Villa, who scored his 14th goal
of the season. “He was strong in
the mind. … The game was more
difficult today [than his last one].
He did well.”
Despite being limited to just two
shots on target in the first 45 minutes, NYCFC (37 points) placed
three shots on target within five
minutes of the second half. Three
minutes after Villa scored, defender Frederic Brillant pushed
NYCFC even further ahead with a
headed goal after Chicago goalkeeper Matt Lampson saved his
first attempt.
While Chicago (38 points)
scored just a few minutes later after forward David Accam blasted
one in off the crossbar, NYCFC remained stout despite playing on
their heels with one less player for
80 minutes. Much of the credit belongs to goalkeeper Sean Johnson,
who faced his former team for the
first time, and saved an eye-popping seven shots to help secure
the win.
Johnson’s heroics — and the
way NYCFC played after a heartwrenching mid-week disappointment in a 2-2 draw against Toronto FC, showed just how important this game meant to them.
Now, NYCFC is just two points
off first-place Toronto.
“It’s crazy [what] the mentality
and form of the team is. It’s more
than three points today,” Villa
said.

ARLINGTON, Texas —
Clint Dempsey fed Jozy Altidore for the go-ahead goal,
then scored on a free kick to
match Landon Donovan’s
American record with his
57th international goal and
lead the United States over
Costa Rica, 2-0, Saturday
night and into the CONCACAF Gold Cup championship game.
Playing in his home state
of Texas, the 34-year-old
Dempsey entered in the
66th minute and made a perfectly timed through pass six
minutes later that allowed
Altidore to break in alone
and beat Patrick Pemberton
with a left-footed shot from
10 yards.
Dempsey doubled the lead
in the 82nd minute with a
27-yard shot that went
around a four-man defensive
wall and got past Pemberton
on two bounces.
“I saw the keeper cheating
a little bit, and it went in,”
Dempsey said.
Dempsey has 136 international appearances, trailing
only Cobi Jones (164) and
Donovan (157) among American players. The assist was
his 20th for the national
team.
“Coming back from two
heart procedures, being able
to still play at this level,”
Dempsey said in his Texas

The U.S. improved to 8-0-5

three Gold Cup titles following championships in 2002
and 2005.
Tim Howard got his second straight shutout, making
key saves on Marco Urena in
the 37th and 71st minutes.
After the second save,
Dempsey took a pass from
Darlington Nagbe in the
center circle, made a cut,
and took three touches as he
sprinted toward goal. Altidore one-timed a shot for
his first national team goal
since September and ripped
off his No. 27 jersey in a wild
celebration, earning a yellow card.
Dempsey’s goal sealed the
win, putting the U.S. back in

shocking semifinal loss to
Jamaica two years ago.

H
Rangers can’t keep
all their defensemen
Larry
Brooks
It does not appear as if
the Blueshirts intend to buy
out the 30-year-old, who
had a pretty good first half,
but that is not set in stone.
The club would clear approximately $3.57 million of
2017-18 cap space by doing
so, while assuming the burden of carrying significant
dead space for the next
eight seasons
The Rangers probably
would prefer to keep Staal
through at least one more
season and hope that good
health would equate to a
strong season.
So that leaves the 30-yearold Holden, who was an extremely pleasant first-half
surprise after his acquisition from the Avalanche in
exchange for a fourth-round
pick and should be worth
something on the trade
market. But there appears
to be a current glut of available defensemen.
Gorton is expected to
revisit the potential buyout of Staal this week, but
if No. 18 remains on the
roster, the Blueshirts conceivably could go into
camp with five defensemen competing for two
spots in the lineup and
three rosters slots and see
where it goes from there.
Though it could be
worse, and much worse,
someone is going to have
to go. Or maybe even two.

KP: I want
to stay in
New York
By MARC BERMAN
cially with speculation James will leave next
summer.
Irving has three years left on his contract,
the third for 2019-20 at player option. He is due
nearly $39 million for the next two years, $60
million for three.
After Irving’s request became public Friday,
ESPN reported his list of preferred destinations as the Knicks, Spurs, Timberwolves and
Heat. Of the four, only San Antonio was a playoff team last season. Obviously, if the Cavs
even were inclined to attempt to honor Irving’s wishes, the asking price would be enormous.
“Asking for a trade and being traded are two
different things,” one insider said.
Just ask Anthony. The Knicks all too well
know the difficulty of getting an equitable return for a player with a no-trade clause, even if
he will lift it for certain teams. The Anthony
scenario has become a waiting game. The
Knicks are intent on getting young players or
draft pick assets for the 10-time All-Star who
has made his desire for Houston perfectly
clear. There is no buyout — or apparently a
quick resolution — in the immediate picture.
Though Latvian journalists were
instructed not to query Kristaps
Porzingis about the Knicks travails
during training camp for the European Championships, a kid camper
had no such restrictions.
Last weekend at a basketball camp
in Latvia attended by about 250 children, one youngster asked Porzingis
in his native tongue why he
wouldn’t abandon New York, and
Porzingis sounded as if he is committed for the long haul.
According to an English translation obtained by The Post, Porzingis
answered:
“I feel that it is the best place to
win. And if you win in New York,
you are king. For the last two years, I
have had so many positive emotions
here that this is where I want to stay
and that this is where I want to win.”
The comment is the most encouraging remark he has made in the offseason regarding his Knicks future.
On Friday, Porzingis “liked’’ a tweet
that showed Kyrie Irving in Knicks
gear. Irving reportedly requested a
trade last week with the Knicks as
one of the clubs on his wish list.
The Knicks are said to have no
plans of including Porzingis in any
Irving deal, thus making one unlikely. Then-Knicks president Phil
Jackson looked into deals for Porzingis before the draft.
With the firing of Jackson, Porzingis’ future appears brighter in New
York. He blew off his exit meeting in
April partly out of protest of how
chaotically Jackson had run the
franchise.
Porzingis started training camp
for Latvia on Monday, and the national team will play its first exhibition game July 29 in Finland. The
tournament starts in late August.
When he declined to talk about
the Knicks’ recent dealings Monday
at a press conference, Porzingis
said, according to a translation, “I’m
just afraid that anything could distract me from my goal, which is national team right now.”
New Knicks president Steve Mills
said Monday that wounds were
healing, and he has “a hectic texting
relationship” with the 7-foot-3 Latvian.
Also during the question-and-answer session with campers, Porzingis offered some personal insight.
He said his most positive influence
is his brother/agent Janis, his only
superstition is putting his left sock
and shoe on first and that to be a
star player “you need talent and second you need to have a good work
ethic.’’

NEW ERA? Carmelo Anthony still is with the Knicks, and all the talk around the team is about the idea of acquiring Kyrie Irving (inset) from the
Cavaliers, potentially by shipping the star forward to Cleveland in the deal.
Corey Sipkin; Getty Images
By FRED KERBER
Something big was needed to take the focus,
if even for a day or a few hours, away from the
Carmelo Anthony saga as the center of the
Knicks’ universe. And Kyrie Irving wanting
out of Cleveland did just that.
Especially with the Knicks as one of the
teams occupying a slot on his preferred list of
landing places.
The Knicks, naturally, salivate over the idea
of adding Irving. But they don’t want to part
with Kristaps Porzingis and, according to
league sources, Willy Hernangomez. But one
neutral observer from another team offered
one assessment.
“If you could get Irving and it came down to
Kyrie or Hernangomez, you’d probably see
Hernangomez on the first plane out,” he said.
“But I just cannot see it happening unless the
Knicks give up Porzingis.”
The Knicks would swap Anthony plus future
picks for Irving virtually without thought. Anthony has a no-trade clause which he is willing
to waive for the right situation.
The Knicks already have discussed Anthony’s readiness to also waive his trade kicker
— which would cost him about $8 million — in
a deal to Houston, his preferred landing spot.
The Rockets have Anthony’s buddy, Chris
Paul, and the MVP runner-up, James Harden,
already in-house. Anthony also has given indications he would surrender his no-trade clause
for a deal to the Cavaliers. But that was to a
Cleveland team that included Irving.
And just because Irving wants a trade,
doesn’t mean the Cavaliers will comply.
League sources confirmed the request was
Eye on Ky’
made but after that, there were numerous reports regarding the cause of Irving’s discontent.
Some say Irving wants to be the focal point
of his own show, impossible with LeBron
James in Cleveland. Others contend Irving, the
25-year-old point guard who grew up in West
Orange, N.J., merely is being proactive and is
trying to get out the door before James, whose
apparent dissatisfaction with the Cavaliers’
offseason has been chronicled. James also was
reportedly “blindsided” by the Irving request.
The Cavaliers were overwhelmed in the
NBA Finals in five games by the Warriors, a
team that almost impossibly improved in the
offseason. Cleveland whacked general manager David Griffin and in free agency, resigned Kyle Korver, added ex-Knick Jose Calderon and European Cedi Osman. Not exactly
moves that counter the Warriors re-signing
Kevin Durant. The Cavaliers also are expected
to meet with point guard Derrick Rose this
week. Rose is expected to choose between the
Cavaliers and the Lakers after his one-year run
with the Knicks.
So maybe Irving too just wants to bolt before
the Cavs’ ship takes on too much water, espe-
his craft,
af and continue to develop his body,
aft,
get stronger. But I wouldn’t want to put a
ceiling on anybody. But he’s got a chance to
be a very good player.
Q: Who are GMs in other sports you
admire?
A: I’ve come to know Kevin Colbert very
well with the Pittsburgh Steelers ... respect
his work, respect his consistency in what
he’s done, and how he’s contributed to
such a great culture year in and year
out in Pittsburgh.
Q: Who are coaches in other
sports you admire?
A: Mike Tomlin, just his ability to inspire and motivate
his teams, and again, create
a culture that’s conducive
to winning had been very
impressive. And obviously, Bill Belichick with the
Patriots, you have to have a
great deal of respect for just
the type of success that he’s had
year in and year out.
Q: Describe upsetting the Lakers and winning the 2004 NBA
championship with the
Pistons.
A: That probably was
Getty Images
my highest moment in my 30 years in athletics to work very closely with a group of players, coaches, front office people to achieve
a common goal, and then not be given that
much of a chance, and then beating such a
great team that year, and a great historical
organization like that, that was the ultimate
for us, and it’s very rewarding when you can
be the last team standing at the highest level
of basketball. It’s a memory that will never
leave me.
Q: Would you show your
championship ring to your
new team?
A: (Laugh) I’m a real humble
person. I keep it tucked away
stored in a safe place. Every
now and then if I want to
reminisce, I may take a look
at it. But the goal is to get
another one.
Q: What is the biggest lesson you took from working
with former Pistons president Joe Dumars?
A: I took a lot of lessons from
Joe. I think the biggest thing
was his messaging to the
Scott
group how important that we had to do this
together as a group, that there was no one
bigger than the organization and the team,
everyone had to check their individual agendas and egos at the door. If you’re gonna win,
you’ve gotta live that philosophy daily, not
just say it, but you gotta live it.
Q: You were with the SuperSonics
when Kevin Durant was drafted. Did
he remind you of anybody you had seen
play over the years?
A: I call him George Gervin 2.0 (smile).
Q: What led to drafting Darko Milicic
over Carmelo Anthony in Detroit with
the second pick in 2003?
A: Next question (laugh).
Q: Did Melo remind you of anyone coming out?
A: Mature offensive game, could really score
... liked his edge and toughness. ... Maybe
Paul Pierce-type player at that time. Guys
who were good at scoring the basketball
when they were kids.
Q: How does a player’s edge manifest
itself on the court?
A: You can see his confidence, how he
interacts, how he approaches the game, how
he attacks the game. He’s unafraid, of any
moment.
Q: Is it fair to say the Bad Boy Pistons
had an edge?
A: Very much so (smile). So if you want to
look definition of edge —the rules have
changed and may have taken a little of the
edge out now (chuckle), but yes they did.
Q: What message would you want to
give Knicks fans?
A: We are committed to following a plan,
building through youth, athleticism,
having a team-first lens, giving them a
product that’s gonna compete each and
every night, and just continue to grow
and get better, and eventually become a
very consistent winner.
Q: You have no doubt in your mind
that this team will be a consistent
winner while you’re here some day?
A: I’m a believer, not just in myself, but
I’m a believer in Steve’s vision, I’m a
believer in the organization itself. I’m
a believer in the community. I think
all of the necessary ingredients are at
our disposal. Now it’s just being able to
put it all together, and consistently stay the
course so that we can get there.
Q: So you will succeed here.
A: I’m confident that we will.

New York Post, Sunday, July 23, 2017
New Knicks general manager Scott Perry
takes a shot at some Q&A with Post columnist
Steve Serby.
Q: From an intangible standpoint,
describe the perfect Scott Perry basketball player.
A: Tough ... competitive ... intelligent ...
would do anything it takes to win.
Q: How would you characterize your
managerial style?
A: I would say that I’m open ... focused ...
collaborative ... engaged to people that I
work with. And all from a very humble
perspective.
Q: Why do you believe you’re the right
man for this job?
A: First of all, I’m fortunate for the opportunity that [team president] Steve Mills has
given me, and I think that I’m someone who
will be heavily aligned with him. I think that
my years of experience —I’ve really worn
pretty much every hat that you can wear in
our industry. So I haven’t skipped any steps,
so I feel very prepared, feel that I have a very
strong knowledge base for the sport, and for
people in the sport. And I have a comfort
level in working with people and managing
people and empowering people, ’cause I think
all of those qualities are important if you’re
gonna be a good leader. I feel very comfortable that I’m ready, and I’m gonna do my best.
Q: You’ve felt ready for a while now,
haven’t you?
A: I have felt ready for a while ... but this is
my moment. And so I don’t look back in
terms of saying, “It should have happened X
number of years ago.” This is my time, and
there’s a reason why this was my time, and
I’m embracing it and ready to run with it.
Q: How long does it take to change a culture, and what are the key ingredients to
changing a culture?
A: I hate to put a number of years or months
on how long it takes to change a culture.
What I will say is that it starts Day 1, and then
you have to live it every day, and you have to
be consistent every day. Whatever your philosophy’s gonna be, it’s gotta be consistent, it’s
gotta be clear, it’s gotta be one that empowers
everyone in the organization to be successful,
and also holds everybody accountable, and
hold each other accountable. People can
come up with slogans, but the true measure
of a culture is a sustainability in how it plays
out on a daily basis. So hopefully, whenever
that is, someone’ll be able to come in here and
say, “OK, I see it, I get it.”
Q: When you were with the Pistons,
you would have players over your home
for catfish, chicken, ribs, macaroni and
cheese, and cole slaw.
A: I started doing that when I was a college
coach. ... I always thought it was a nice touch
to have a home-cooked meal. And it’s just
something that I carry with me to the NBA,
and I think part of why we were able to
establish such a great culture in Detroit.
Q: Describe Kristaps Porzingis.
A: Very nice young man. Engaging, easy to
talk to. So I’m just looking forward to getting
to know him better and working with him.
Q: Does he remind you of anyone?
A: He’s a unique player, his size and
length and his ability to play away from
the basket. I don’t know that I could, or
nor would I want to put any type of pressure on him to compare him to anybody
right now, but I don’t recall anybody right
off the top of my head from years gone by.
Q: How high is up for him?
A: As is with any player, I think it will all
get down to just how much he continues to
really work at his craft, and be committed to

TAR Cowboys running back
Ezekiel Elliott, last seen in action trying to expose an unsuspecting woman’s breasts as she
watched a St. Patrick’s Day parade,
remains a societal menace who
doesn’t know right from wrong despite his full scholarship enrollment as a student-athlete at Ohio
State.
Ohio State has a habit of recruiting dubious student-athletes. As
former OSU quarterback Cardale
Jones tweeted in 2012: “Why
should we have to go to class if we
came here to play FOOTBALL, we
ain’t come here to play SCHOOL,
classes are POINTLESS.”
That brings to mind Rutgers football coach Chris Ash’s Q&A with
The Post’s Steve Serby last August.
Ash: “We have what we call a
code of conduct, and it’s something
I took from my time at Ohio State
with Urban Meyer. It’s how we
have to behave away from football;
it’s about honesty, treat women
with respect, no drugs, no stealing,
no weapons.”
Save it, Coach. Meyer ran an arrested-development, pre-penal colony at Florida, and was paid a
fortune to do so. And he is doing
the same at Ohio State, being paid
even more — well over $6 million
per year, plus perks — to be allowed to do so.
So let’s review: Between Ohio
State and Rutgers, we have two taxpayer and student-funded state
university Big 10 football programs
— Rutgers, despite its many uniforms, is losing its games while the
school is losing its shirt throwing
millions at football — that dangle
full scholarships to recruit to their
campuses players who need to be
reminded, or taught for the first
time, that criminal conduct should
be avoided. Fascinating.
That’s right, while enrolled in
state-funded institutions of higher
learning — and no matter from
which state you’re recruited —
there is a need to be told: “Treat
women with respect, no drugs, no
stealing, no weapons.”
Does that mean recruits should
wait until they’ve finished college
— perhaps advancing to the NFL
— before resuming or beginning
such activities?
So where is the published warning to parents and academics-only
students that schools such as Florida, Ohio State and Rutgers recruit
and enroll players who need to be

We move, now, to baseball commissioner Rob Manfred, who in
March said, “Major League Baseball’s greatest responsibility is to
ensure that today’s youth become
active participants in our game as
players and fans,” adding that MLB
has a “commitment to building a
stronger connection between
young people and the national pastime.”
Small wonder team owners pay
him millions. Those paid to make
such false public statements logically shouldn’t work on the cheap.
Last week MLB again took the

Blind greed has turned most Sunday Yankees-Red Sox games into
late Sunday night ESPN games,
even if those in Yakima and Yuma
have a better chance to see them
end than those here and in Boston,
not to mention half the nation’s
population.
Dodgers-Mets? The two largest
TV market teams? Done! Bait-so,
switch-o! The Mets have a kids’
“Family Sunday” come-on planned.
Those kids still awake — or having
just awakened — can poke Mr. Met
with a stick to wake him so he can
escort them on their postgame run
around the bases! “Have a swig of
my Red Bull, kid.”
So what Manfred said about kids
being MLB’s top priority is complete BS — a blown save. The National Pastime has become the National Past Bed Time, and not just
for kids.
But what isn’t attached to a con?
Throughout the first two rounds of
the British Open, NBC commentators continually referenced Olympic golf, as if it were golf’s newest
major.
It’s not, but the Olympics are on
NBC, thus from those who know
better we were spoken to as if we
didn’t know better.
Sterling calls it like he doesn’t see it
THE POLLYANNA notion that I would be able
to sit outside while listening to Wednesday afternoon’s Yankees-Twins on
the radio became a shameon-me before the second
inning ended.
Brian Dozier led off the
bottom of the first with
what John Sterling’s inflection implied was a lazy
fly to right. Next, he delivered a surprise: Dozier
was on second with an offthe-wall double!
Then, “I thought Clint
Frazier would get to
that.” Sterling has spent
the last 28 years telling us
what he thought would
happen or happened,
without first bothering to
know.
He next further excused
himself by saying that the
ball carries on such hot afternoons.
But the kiss-off came in
the bottom of the second.
The Twins led, 2-0, two
on, two out when Sterling
reported that Eduardo
Escobar
swung
and
missed, strike three, thus
the inning was over; the
Yanks had ducked major
damage.
Nevertheless, Escobar, as
Sterling was then forced to
admit, fouled the ball into
the dirt — the reason
catcher, pitcher and batter
didn’t vacate the scene. Escobar then singled in a run,
and what Sterling had reported he thought was the
end of the second, became
a six-run half-inning — major damage — in a 6-1 loss.

SOUTHPORT, England — Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar were walking
down the 18th fairway together in the
early evening Saturday with the Royal
Birkdale grandstands jammed with fans
on their feet in thunderous ovation
when Kuchar stopped Spieth in his
tracks for a moment.
“This is pretty cool to be here walking
up the last hole of a British Open,”
Kuchar said to Spieth.
“It was just a neat moment,’’ Kuchar
said after the round.
Spieth, who was in grind mode, ready
to survey the birdie putt he was about to
have, had to check himself.
“Typically when I’m walking up to
greens, I take out my notes trying to just
get an idea what the putt is going to do
as I walk up,’’ Spieth said. “I started to
take out my book and saw the 18th hole
and I’m like, ‘I can’t. This is not worthy
of this.’ When Matt came over and said
that, I had already started to kind of appreciate that. It was a fun walk.’’
That walk figures to be a lot more
special for Spieth on Sunday considering he is taking three-shot lead over
Kuchar into the final round after shooting a 5-under 65 on Saturday to get to 11under.
Kuchar shot 66 to get to 8-under and
lost ground to Spieth, who led him by
two shots entering the day. Austin Connelly, a 20-year-old playing in his first
major championship, is tied with U.S.
Open champion Brooks Koepka for
third at 5-under.
Branden Grace, who became the first
player ever to shoot a 62 in a men’s major, is 4-under, as is Hideki Matsuyama.
Several players are at 3-under, including
defending champion Henrik Stenson
and No. 1 ranked Dustin Johnson.
But this looks like a two-man race
Sunday.
Spieth has converted eight of his past
nine final-round leads into wins, with
the only blemish being the mess he
made losing a five-shot lead with nine
holes to play at the 2015 Masters.
“I think I’m in a position where [the
Masters experience] can be very advantageous,’’ Spieth said. “It was a humbling experience that I thought at the
time could serve me well going forward.
I understand that leads can be squandered quickly, and I also understand
how you can keep on rolling on one.’’
On Saturday, Spieth kept on rolling,
playing bogey-free golf and never giving
Kuchar or anyone else an opening.
When Kuchar birdied No. 15 to tie him
momentarily at 9-under, Spieth topped

his birdie to get to 10-under. On No. 18,
Spieth drained a long birdie putt from
the back of the green to get to 11-under
and Kuchar missed his 8-foot birdie putt
to stay on 8-under, three shots back.
“That’s expected with Jordan,’’
Kuchar said of Spieth’s birdie on 18. “I
played well. I’m not out of this. I’d like
to be a little closer to Jordan, but I’m
playing good golf and I’m excited about
[Sunday]. It was a battle with both of us
pushing each other. I hope there’s more
of that [Sunday].’’
Spieth has played 69 career major
championship rounds and has finished
with the lead in 14 of them — a remarkable percentage of success. He has a
chance to join Jack Nicklaus as one of
just two players to win the third leg of
the Grand Slam before age 24, and become the first player to have 10 PGA
Tour wins and three majors before
reaching 24.
So, if you think anyone is going to stop
Spieth from winning Sunday, bagging
his third career major championship
and the third leg of a career Grand Slam
at age 23, raise your hand.
“The man out front has a good track
record,’’ Justin Rose said of Spieth. “He’s
obviously done all the right things to
score well, which is what you have to do
on windy links. So the chasing pack will
have to chase pretty hard.’’
Chase away.

who have
changed teams
COACHING CHANGES
1
KYLE SHANAHAN
(49ers): The offensive
guru, who guided
Atlanta’s Matt Ryan
to an MVP year last
season, attempts
to work his magic
with journeyman
Brian Hoyer,
more bridge
quarterback
than Golden
Gate
Bridge.
If Ryan
and the
Falcons
suffer a
Super Bowl
hangover,
Shanahan will
be cited as a
chief reason
why.
Adrian
Peterson
2
SEAN McVAY (Rams): At 31, the
youngest head coach in the NFL will
be asked to be the kind of quarterbackwhisperer for Jared Goff that he was
for Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins
— who may hit the $30 million jackpot
whenever he secures his long-term
contract (49ers, perhaps)?
By Steve Serby
1. BRANDON MARSHALL (Giants)
7. KEVIN ZEITLER (Browns)
A two-year, $11 million bargain desperate
to play in his first playoff game and the perfect complement to Odell Beckham Jr. and
big target Eli Manning craves.
The Bengals will miss the best guard in
the game, who joins left tackle Joe Thomas
on a formidable offensive line on a five-year,
$60 million deal ($31.5 million guaranteed).
2. BRANDIN COOKS (Patriots)
8. TERRELLE PRYOR (Redskins)
The blazing vertical threat, the most
dangerous Tom Brady has had at his disposal since Randy Moss, who will open
up the shorter and intermediate routes for
Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, and
Dwayne Allen, too.
The freakish former Browns receiver
enjoyed a 1,007-yard, four-TD season and
was signed to a one-year, $8 million deal to
help replace Pierre Garçon (and DeSean
Jackson).
3. STEPHON GILMORE (Patriots)
A bidding war ended when the
ex-Chief 350-plus pound defensive tackle was signed to a oneyear, $8 million
deal to upgrade
a
pedestrian run
defense.
Bill Belichick kills two birds with this one
stone, prying him away from the Bills and
landing a big cornerback not yet 27 to match
up against the likes of Julio Jones, Mike
Evans, Demaryius Thomas, Amari Cooper
and former teammate Sammy Watkins.
4. ALSHON JEFFERY (Eagles)
10. ADRIAN PETERSON (Saints)
No one is certain how much the artist
formerly known as All Day has left at 32,
but it will be intriguing to watch how
Sean Payton will utilize his two-year,
$7 million toy in tandem with Mark
Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara. Peterson’s first game as a Saint? “Monday Night
Football” in Minnesota.
9. DONTARI POE (Falcons)
VANCE JOSEPH (Broncos): After one
season as defensive coordinator,
he comes over from the Dolphins with
a reputation as an even-keeled leader
of men and disciple of Gary Kubiak,
Marvin Lewis and Adam Gase — who
needs to solve the Trevor SiemianPaxton Lynch QB conundrum for a
franchise with win-now expectations.
Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy
should help.
4
ANTHONY LYNN
(Chargers): Rex
Ryan’s longtime aide
is a master at the
running game and is
taking a pair of former
head coaches, Gus
Bradley (DC) and
Ken Whisenhunt
(OC), with
him to Los
Angeles.
Because of his injury history, he is on a
one-year, $9.5 million show-me deal, but if
he can stay on the field, he will be Carson
Wentz’s go-to receiver.
5. MARTELLUS BENNETT (Packers)
5
SEAN McDERMOTT (Bills): Doug
Marrone bolted after two years,
Ryan was booted after two years, and
now the former Panthers defensive
coordinator tries to end a 17-year
playoff drought.
The self-proclaimed “Black Unicorn”
won a Super Bowl ring with Brady, and
now he tries for another with Aaron Rodgers thanks to his three-year, $21 million
contract.
6. JEREMY MACLIN (Ravens)
Joe Flacco desperately needed a
replacement for retired Steve Smith,
and the ex-Chief should return
to his 1,000-yard form in the
slot if healthy and earn
his two-year, $11 million
deal.

DOUG MARRONE (Jaguars): Nearly

operations Tom Coughlin as a resource.

TRAINING CAMP PREVIEW
OVER
THE TOP
Improved Pats’
quest for another
title leads 2017
NFL topics
By STEVE SERBY
We celebrate the open of training
camps when the addictive smell of
the NFL is in the air and the Jets
are still 0-0 and tied with the
Patriots.
So The Post provides a primer
on the top-10 storylines to look
for on the Road to Super Bowl
LII in Minneapolis and who to
look for and where to look for
them.
1. The G.O.A.T
Dak
Prescott
If life begins at 40, Tom Brady
and Bill Belichick will be hoisting their sixth Lombardi
Trophy together because
receiver Brandin Cooks,
cornerback Stephon
Gilmore and defensive end Kony Ealy are
youthful upgrades to
the defending champs.
NFL commissioner Roger
Goodell should do himself a
favor and bring Deflategate earplugs when he finally shows his
face at Gillette Stadium for the
Thursday night opener.
10 STORYLINES
TO WATCH
3. Dak to the future
Tony Romo is in the CBS booth
with Jim Nantz, so Jerry Jones is praying there is no sophomore jinx for
Dak Prescott. But the Cowboys might
want to temper the expectations for
another 23 TD-4 INT repeat — especially if and when sidekick Ezekiel
Elliott earns himself a suspension.
4. Suck for Sam Sweepstakes
The commish will be vigilant on keeping the integrity
of the game if and when
the Browns and Jets
embark on a calculated
tank job, subtle or
otherwise, for a shot
at USC quarterback
Sam Darnold, should he
decide to declare for the
draft.
2. The 2015 quarterback
class
Jameis Winston and Marcus
Mariota are primed to make a
playoff run. Winston has
been armed with a new
deep threat and complement to Mike
Evans in DeSean
Ja c k s o n a n d a
new tight end in
first-round draft
pick O.J. Howard.
Mariota welcomes
first-round receiver
Corey Davis and exJets WR Eric Decker.

5. Skittle big man
Marshawn Lynch is back, eager
to be Beast Mode for his
hometown team in
Oakland, and help
$25 million man
Derek Carr take
the Raiders back
to the Super
Bowl — where
Ly n c h m i g h t
announce he is
just at Media Day so
he don’t get fined.
6. The 2004 quarterback class
This is Philip Rivers’ first season
in Los Angeles, and he still trails
Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning by two Super Bowl championships. Big Ben may or may not
retire after this season, and Manning’s window may close after the
2018 season when heir apparent
Davis Webb is ready.
7. The 2016 quarterback class
Jared Goff has the Hollywood
looks, but he looked lost as a rookie while the Eagles celebrated the
Rams passing on Carson Wentz
with the first-overall pick. Goff has
a new head coach in offensive
wunderkind Sean
McVay, and
Wentz has
a
new
go-to
receiver in
Alshon Jeffery and new
deep threat

January shoulder surgery

Peyton Manning, and one of the
faces of the NFL, again.
10. The firm of Riveron, Yurk

LEONARD FOURNETTE (RB, Jaguars): Doug
Marrone’s 235-pound hammer wolf take the heat
off QB Blake Bortles.
2
DESHAUN WATSON (QB, Texans): Bill O’Brien
traded up for the former national champion
from Clemson to help forget the Brock Osweiler
nightmare and get him closer to the Super Bowl.
3
COREY DAVIS (WR, Titans): A 6-foot-3,
209-pounder who has drawn comparisons to
Terrell Owens and will be Marcus Mariota’s go-to
guy sooner rather than later.
4
MYLES GARRETT (DE, Browns): Coordinator
Gregg Williams will make sure that the firstoverall draft pick will be a menace.
5
CHRISTIAN McCAFFREY (RB/KR, Panthers):
Cam Newton and Ron Rivera ought to make sure
this guy gets 15 touches every game, because he is
dangerous catching passes out of the backfield.
6
JOE MIXON (RB, Bengals): Might have been the
first back drafted if not for a domestic-violence
incident that caused him to fall to the second round,
into the laps of the NFL’s Home For Wayward Boys.
7
TARIK COHEN (RB, Bears): The 199th pick of
the draft, a 5-foot-6, electrifying 179-pounder
nicknamed “The Human Joystick” at North Carolina
A&T who ran 4.42 at the Combine. Also labeled
“Chicken Salad” for his ability to make it out of ... er,
manure.
8
MALIK HOOKER (S, Colts): A ballhawking free
safety who is a threat to take any interception
to the house in a division filled with inexperienced
quarterbacks.
9
DALVIN COOK (RB, Vikings): Fell to the second
round because of durability, fumbling and
entourage baggage, but he is an explosive, big-play
talent who has moved ahead of Latavius Murray
(ankle) in the race to replace Adrian Peterson.
10
DeSHONE KIZER (QB, Browns): Brock
Osweiler and Cody Kessler are holding the
fort for the latest hope to break the franchise’s
endless quarterback curse.

pick is going
to be the Jets’
starting
strong
safety.
Being an
immediate
starter is
tough for
any rookie,
but Adams
looked
up to
the task
in the
spring.
Adams also showed the
leadership ability people
raved about when he was
coming out of LSU. He is
a vocal presence in the
secondary. The Jets have
a leadership void with the
releases of players like Nick
Mangold and David Harris.
Adams will be asked to fill
that void.
JETS TO
WATCH
By Brian Costello
QB Christian Hackenberg »
It feels like the entire 2017 Jets season is
going to be about Hackenberg and whether
he can be an NFL quarterback. That starts
in training camp and with preseason
games. Hackenberg did not play a snap last
year, and now he is competing with Josh
McCown and Bryce Petty for the starting job.
McCown is the favorite to start the year, but
Hackenberg can change that with a strong
August. The microscope is on him. Every
pass will be dissected and debated.
TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins »
The Jets have re membered there is a position called tight end,
and Seferian-Jenkins will be the beneficiary of that. New offensive
coordinator John Morton plans on involving the tight ends plenty
in his West Coast system. Anything would be an increase from
former offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, who was allergic
to using the position. Seferian-Jenkins had a strong spring. He
told reporters he lost 25 pounds and quit drinking alcohol this
offseason, which has helped him on the field. Seferian-Jenkins
seemed to catch every pass thrown his way. Now, we will
see if that translates from spring practices in shorts to the
training camp practices in pads. Seferian-Jenkins will
begin the year with a two-game suspension, but he can
make the coaches miss him with a strong summer.
AFC EAST PRIMER

& BIll

AP; Getty Images
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS ('16: 14-2)
COACH: Bill Belichick (18th season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: Bad news for the
rest of the NFL: The Super Bowl champs
won the offseason. The biggest
acquisition was wide receiver
Brandin Cooks, who they got from
the Saints in a trade. But they also
bolstered their secondary with
free-agent cornerback Stephon
Gilmore, their running game with
Mike Gillislee, their pass rush with
Kony Ealy and replaced tight end
Martellus Bennett with Dwayne
Allen. The final touch was picking up
longtime Jet linebacker David Harris
after the Jets dumped him.
BIGGEST LOSSES: The Patriots
lost some big names from their
championship team, but it never seems
to matter as long as Tom Brady remains.
Bennett played well for the Patriots, but
now is in Green Bay. LeGarrette
Blount ran for 18 touchdowns
last year, but Belichick let him leave in free
agency. They signed Gilmore to replace
Logan Ryan, who is now in Te nnessee.
CAMP OUTLOOK: Stop me if you’ve heard
this before: The Patriots enter the year as
the favorites to win the Super Bowl. Coming
off a 14-2 season that ended with their
dramatic Super Bowl comeback win over the
Falcons, the Patriots might be even better
in 2017. Brady turns 40 in August, but never
seems to decline. In fact, last season may
have been his best. Now, he has Cooks to
throw to, something that will give AFC East
coaches nightmares. Belichick and Brady
are still the best in the game and appear to
be ramping up for a run at a few more Super
Bowl rings before their careers end.
HOW THEY FARED VS. JETS LAST SEASON:
Patriots swept season series, 2-0.

MIAMI DOLPHINS (10-6)
BUFFALO BILLS (7-9)
COACH: Adam Gase (second season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: Former Jets general
manager Mike Tannenbaum continues
to revamp the Miami roster in
his third season running the
Dolphins. He traded tackle
Brandon Albert to the Jaguars
for tight end Julius Thomas
(right), hoping Thomas can
recapture the form he showed in
Denver. In free agency, he added
linebacker Lawrence Timmons,
safety Nate Allen and guard Ted Larsen to
the starting lineup. First-round pick Charles
Harris will join a talented rotation of pass
rushers.
BIGGEST LOSSES: Miami dumped Albert in
the Thomas trade, but that move should help
stabilize their offensive line. Laremy Tunsil
will move from left guard to his natural
position left tackle in his second season.
COACH: Sean McDermott (first season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: McDermott, their
biggest offseason acquisition, has begun
remaking the roster left behind by former
coach Rex Ryan. The Bills’ most intriguing
pickup this offseason was second-round
pick Zay Jones, a speedy wide receiver
out of East Carolina. They brought over
Micah Hyde from the Packers at safety and
drafted cornerback Tre’Davious White in the
first round to remake the secondary.
BIGGEST LOSSES: Top cornerback Stephon
Gilmore is now in New England. They also let
Zach Brown, their most athletic linebacker,
walk in free agency. Buffalo surprisingly
allowed running back Mike Gillislee to go to
the Patriots as a restricted free agent.
CAMP OUTLOOK: McDermott was brought in
to clean up the mess left by Ryan, whose two
years in Buffalo were a total mess and ended
with a 7-9 season last year. The Bills decided
Defensive coordinator Vance
Joseph departed to become the
new head coach of the Broncos.
CAMP OUTLOOK: The Dolphins enter Ye ar
2 under Gase optimistic after a 10-6
season that resulted in their first playoff
appearance since 2008. Quarterback
Ryan Tannehill is coming off a knee
injury, but the Dolphins say he is fully
healthy and ready to go. Tannehill looked
comfortable in Gase’s system last year
and should improve with another year in the
system. Talented wide receiver Jarvis Landry
is Tannehill’s top target. Ndamukong Suh
and Cameron Wake lead the way on defense.
The Dolphins need improvement from their
linebackers, something they hope Timmons
brings them. Miami has not had consecutive
playoff appearances since 2000-01.

Dolphins swept season series, 2-0.

The 2016 first-round pick had a disappointing rookie season. His coverage
skills were not all they were hyped up to be and he sometimes overran
plays. Lee did play on an injured ankle for most of the year, which could
have led to some of the problems. With David Harris gone, Lee is now
going to be counted on even more in the middle of the Jets defense. The
Jets will be looking for signs of progress throughout August.

hinges on whether he can make a jump from

to carry the running game with Gillislee
gone. The biggest question in Buffalo in
recent years has been: Can Sammy Watkins
stay healthy? The wide receiver has yet to
live up to his potential because of injuries.
Leslie Frazier takes over as defensive
coordinator and is converting the Bills back
to a 4-3 defense after the Ryan brothers’ 3-4
was a failure. Buffalo’s playoff drought is
now at 17 years and counting, the longest
in pro sports. There is no reason to expect
that to end this year, but the no-nonsense
McDermott will change the culture in his
first year in Buffalo.

Wilkerson was a major disappointment in
2016 after signing a five-year, $86 million
contract. He had just 4.5 sacks and was
not his usual disruptive self. The Jets hope
that was because he was not
fully recovered from offseason
surgery to repair a broken leg.
Wilkerson said he is ready to
be dominant this year. It will
be interesting to watch him
in training camp to see if
there is some fire in him
during practice and in
preseason games. The
Jets’ only hope this
season is a dominant
defense, and that
starts up front with
Wilkerson.

RB Paul
Perkins »
By Paul Schwartz
LB B.J. Goodson »
Wanting him to be the starting middle linebacker is fine. Giving him
every opportunity to thrive as a second-year player with practically no
experience on defense as a rookie is all well and good. This was the plan
all along for Goodson: Bring him along on special teams then unleash his
down-hill, physical tackling ability as a starter in year No. 2. It is Goodson’s
job to lose, and the Giants are counting on this quiet but tough guy from
Clemson to serve as one of the very few missing pieces on what should be
a sterling defense. Goodson does not have to be a Pro Bowler, but he has
to be an orchestrator and a leader, the sooner the better in camp.
Jobs are not won in the spring, but this
one was, as coach Ben McAdoo shed his
customary “wait-and-see’’ approach and
named Perkins the starting running back.
Perkins showed flashes (456 rushing
yards) as a rookie, but he will have
to show more than that to justify this
ascension. Otherwise, McAdoo will have
to sort through Shane Vereen, Orleans
Darkwa and rookie Wayne Gallman to find
a starter. Perkins might not do anything
exceptionally well, and he seems to be a
below-average pass-catcher. He is smart
and can handle the pass-protection
assignments. Can he be an elusive and
dependable runner?
NFC EAST PRIMER
DALLAS COWBOYS ('16: 13-3)
COACH: Jason Garrett (eighth season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: For a second consecutive year,
the Cowboys were not big players in free agency. They
did sign former Dolphins and Eagles cornerback
Nolan Carroll to move in as a starter, took
defensive lineman Taco Charlton in the first
round of the draft to improve the pass rush
and CB Chidobe Awuzie in the second
round. They also took a flier on Damontre
Moore, a former Giants draft pick and
problem child.
BIGGEST LOSSES: Count ’em up: The
Cowboys lost 11 players in free agency
and two of their marquee players, Tony
Romo and Doug Free, retired. Among the
other losses are cornerbacks Brandon Carr and
Morris Claiborne, safeties Barry Church and J.J.
Wilcox, and offensive lineman Ronald Leary. In all, the
Cowboys lost 11 players that started 546 games for them.
CAMP OUTLOOK: What is going on with star RB Ezekiel
Elliott? He possibly is facing a one- or two-game
suspension stemming from a domestic violence
incident, and his uncertain availability early in
the season will affect how he is used and how
he prepares this summer. This is year No. 2
for QB Dak Prescott (left), but camp No. 1 in
terms of having to live up to burgeoning
expectations after an outstanding
rookie season. The Cowboys will
have to put together a newlook defensive backfield, with
several new starters
in the secondary. At
linebacker, all eyes
will be on Jaylon
Smith, who did not
play at all as a rookie
and has nerve damage in
his surgically repaired right knee.
Can he show enough in camp to earn a role?
HOW THEY FARED VS. GIANTS LAST SEASON:
Giants swept season series, 2-0.

This guy was a shooting star in the summer
of 2016, rocketing to the starting free safety
role as a rookie third-round pick from Boise
State. The liftoff lasted just two games
before he crash-landed on injured reserve.
Now Thompson is coming off foot surgery
and has to re-establish himself, as
another rookie, Andrew Adams, filled in
admirably last season. First, Thompson
has to show his foot is sound and can
take a pounding. Next, he has to pick
up where he left off as a vocal presence
on the back end of the defense, as a ballhawk and as a coverage-minded safety
capable of complementing rising
star Landon Collins.

Really? Do we really have to dwell on the status of a kid
kicker, day after day, practice after practice? Well, yes,
when he is the only kicker on the roster, the only kicker
in camp. Rosas is a rookie from that kicking hotbed of
Southern Oregon, a big guy with a big leg, a 22-year-old
the Giants believe can handle the workload. They will test
him whenever possible, manufacturing pressure situations
for him in drills designed to make him sweat. Rosas will get
to show his wares in the preseason games. If he falters, a
veteran will be signed and Rosas becomes a footnote. These
young kickers have to get their break somewhere. It will be
interesting to see if this one can make it through unscathed.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS (8-7-1)
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (7-9)
COACH: Jay Gruden (fourth season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: Free agent linebacker
Zach Brown should help with the run defense,
and DT Terrell McClain likely will start — he is
another solid run-stopper. WR Terrelle Pryor
was signed to be Pierre Garcon’s replacement,
and WR Josh Doctson, the 2016 first-round pick,
can be viewed as a newcomer — he played just
30 snaps before going down with an Achilles
injury.
BIGGEST LOSSES: Gone are stalwart WRs
DeSean Jackson and Garcon,
both mainstays in the passing
game for several years. It will
be tough to replace Jackson’s
explosive nature and Garcon’s
consistency. Sean McVay, the
talented offensive coordinator, is
also a loss, having left to become
the Rams’ coach.
CAMP OUTLOOK: Damage control is needed
COACH: Doug Pederson (second
season)
BIGGEST NEWCOMERS: Welcome to
an overhaul of the receiver corps, with
Pro Bowler Alshon Jeffery the most
significant free-agent addition, giving
Carson Wentz a high-jumping target
for those jump ball passes. The Eagles
hope WR Torrey Smith regains the form
he showed with the Ravens and is not
the player he was the past two years
with the 49ers. RB LeGarrette Blount,
who scored 18 rushing TDs in 2016 for
the Patriots, should add some oomph
to the power running game. A trade for
defensive tackle Tim Jernigan and freeagent signing of defensive end Chris
Long should help with depth on the
defensive line, and CB Patrick Robinson
provides experience in the secondary.
BIGGEST LOSSES: A whole lot of
AP
after the front office botched the Kirk
Cousins contract saga — proving this
franchise can screw up anything, if
given the chance. The team basically portrayed
Cousins as disloyal and greedy, and it will take a
summer of healing to get the quarterback’s head
right. There is a new offensive coordinator (Matt
Cavanaugh) and a new defensive coordinator
(Greg Manusky), yet another dose of
upheaval that will have to be sorted out in
camp. Manusky is the third new
defensive coordinator in the
past four years, and he has
to figure out a revamped
line and must find the right
spot for hot prospect rookie
Jonathan Allen, a first-round
pick.
HOW THEY FARED VS.
GIANTS LAST SEASON:
Kirk
Season series split, 1-1.
Cousins
defense walked out the door
as the Eagles reshuffled and
discarded DT Bennie Logan,
DE Connor Barwin, CB Nolan Carroll and
CB Leodis McKelvin.
CAMP OUTLOOK: The expectations
are far greater the second time around
for Wentz, who showed tremendous
promise early in his rookie season then
tailed off. This is Year 2 for Pederson,
and pretty much all remnants of the
Chip Kelly regime are gone The plan is
to get DE Derek Barnett, the 14th-overall
pick in the draft, up to speed in camp
to play immediately. Wentz will have
to acclimate to his new receivers and
improve on his downfield accuracy and
efficiency for the Eagles to become
more of a quick-strike attack.
HOW THEY FARED VS. GIANTS LAST
SEASON: Season series split, 1-1.

The true test will come Sept. 10 in
Dallas, but before then, it would
be nice for Flowers to show real
signs that he is a changed
player, can live up to his
first-round draft status
and become a legitimate
starting left tackle. He
is leaner and in better
shape after a diligent offseason regime,
which is great, but now it must translate to the
field. The coaching staff should instruct Olivier
Vernon to hold nothing back in his summer
battles with Flowers. The time for treating
Flowers with kid gloves is over.

S
OMETIMES,
the
doorstep can be every
bit as satisfying as the
real thing. Maybe the Yankees will fool us. Maybe
this infusion of relief pitching really will catapult
them to bigger and better
things, and maybe they can
figure out a way to bypass
the Astros and the Dodgers
both, win what would have
to be one of the most unexpected championships in
team history.
More likely, what they
are doing is whetting our
appetites. More likely this
is the appetizer to what
will be coming in the next
few years — when the kids
are fully blossomed, when
the starting pitching is
shored up, when they have
fully formed team that isn’t
just capable of winning a
title, but expected to.
For Yankees fans, that
will be a fun part of the
process.
But in many ways, this is,
also. In many ways, the
doorstep can be more fun,
because it hints at what is
to come, it tantalizes, it
gives you an appetite for
wanting more.
We’ve seen a number of
those teams around here.
The ’85 Mets are the perfect example of the perfect
doorstep team. Just two
years removed from languishing at the bottom of
the National League, the
’85 Mets featured four
players around whom fans
could invest their hearts
and their souls — two of
them in their very prime
(Keith Hernandez, Gary
Carter) and two of them at
the glorious start of what
were certain to be glorious
careers (Dwight Gooden,
Darryl Strawberry).
Those Mets won 98
HERE WE COME: Darryl Strawberry and the Mets celebrate a win over the Cardinals
late in the 1985 season. Fans could sense future success, and indeed the Amazin’s delivered with a World Series title the following season.
AP
games, and though they
didn’t make the postseason,
falling three behind the
Cardinals, there was a
sense
of
inevitability
around the team, which is
probably why Shea Stadium
fans gave them a raucous
ovation when they were officially eliminated from
contention on the next-tolast day of the season.
It was a similar feeling
John Santello: To the best of my
knowledge (which is decidedly
small) Yankees uniform 21 hasn’t
been retired. So why shouldn’t it
be issued to Todd Frazier, and
why would he have to seek Paul
O’Neill’s blessing to acquire it?
Vac: GREAT question. It is
patently absurd that this is an
issue. If 21 is so sacrosanct in the
around the ’85 Giants, who
were just starting to hit
their stride, who had won a
playoff game the year before and had just about all
of the important elements
in place on both sides of
the ball. Those Giants
went 10-6 then beat the defending-champion 49ers at
home, and convincingly,
and there was a genuine
sense that they were the
Yankees universe, then retire it
(I say it should be). But if it’s
not? It ought to be up for grabs.
In or out. Pick one.
John Cobert: Maybe one day
Sandy Alderson will get his head
perfect team capable of
beating the ’85 Bears …
Well, until the wind
shifted and the ball fluttered away from Sean Landeta’s foot, and the Bears
wound up swallowing them
whole, 21-0. Still, the Giants
had come a long way from
the 3-12-1 record they had
posted just two years before. Twelve months later
they would finish and ful-
out of his analytics and recognize
the importance of defense. He
built this team as if the starters
would always get 27 strikeouts.
Vac: Yes. Yes, he did.
@JimNewton8: Can’t wait till Bryce
fill their destiny.
In that way, they were
similar to the ’69 Knicks,
who had struggled and
scuffled for so long and
who had finally made a serious inroad during the
1968-’69 season. That was
the year the made the most
important deal in team history, acquiring Dave DeBusschere, and they wound
up winning 54 games (the
most, by some seven games,
in franchise history).
It was their first full year
in the newest version of
Madison Square Garden,
and the Knicks were
slowly becoming a musthave ticket, and they had
every principle player in
place. They also weren’t
ready to win quite yet.
They did sweep the 57win Baltimore Bullets, and
it wasn’t particularly close.
But then they faced the
Celtics in the final year of
Bill Russell’s career, and
though the Celtics won
just 48 games that year,
they stole Game 1 and finished off the Knicks in six.
Yankees fans know the
feeling, anyway. The ’95
Yankees went from oblivion to the first-ever AL
wild card by going 26-7
down the stretch. That
they lost in heartbreaking
fashion to the Mariners
only seemed to fuel what
came next, when they began assembling the team
that would win a World Series in 1996, then three
more in the next four years.
Harper starts wearing No. 88!
@MikeVacc: It’s funny, all the
hand-wringing that went on
when all the single digits went
out of circulation. Looks like the
kids have figured it out, eh?
IT IS bad enough the
Yankees won’t give
poor Jersey guy Todd
Frazier No. 21 (since all
he wants to do is honor
Paul O’Neill, for crying
out loud). But if they
win the World Series,
and he comes back
next year, does he
automatically have to
surrender No. 29 to Joe
Girardi?
➤ Godspeed, Bob
Wolff, who proved for
70 years it was
possible to be a Hall of
Fame gentlemen as
well as a Hall of Fame
broadcaster.
➤ I have a sleeper read
for you this week, a
beautiful book called
“46 Days” by my friend
Kevin Gleason — a
genuine tale of heart,
resilience and a man
named Frank
Giannino’s remarkable
run across the United
States. You’ll thank me.
➤ Somehow, Bartolo
Colon (below) keeps
fooling ’em. The other
night, Twins fans gave
him a rollicking ovation
as he left the mound —
in a game when his
ERA inflated from 8.14
to 8.19. No, I don’t get it
either.
Getty Images
Steve Sachs: So the Knicks hired a
guy who was all too happy to take
the job as a career stepping-stone
at a minimum. If he does well and
the Knicks somehow win, he could
be a rock star. But if they control
him like a puppet, that’s what they’ll
get — a puppet. And he will soon be
on his way out of town. Next!
Vac: Rinse. Repeat.

HERE’S
THE DEAL
HOW WOULD THAT
LOOK? Here is a
glimpse of what Mets
first baseman Lucas
Duda would look like in
a Yankees uniform, if
he were traded to the
crosstown rivals.

New York Post, Sunday, July 23, 2017

Amazin’ trade with Yanks one of
several that would make sense
T
HE Yankees and Mets have
made one significant deadline
deal: In July 2003, Armando
Benitez was sent to The Bronx for
three prospects.
They should do something bigger now.
Lucas Duda should be moved to
the Yankees for a four-player package: take a choice of 1) Jonathan
Holder, Ben Heller, J.P Feyereisen
or Gio Gallegos; 2) Domingo German or Ronald
Herrera; 3) Tyler
Austin or Garrett
Cooper; and 4)
Rob Refsnyder.
For the Yankees, Duda
becomes the
regular first baseman, turning
Chase Headley into a backup at
both first and third (to Todd Frazier). He would add lefty diversification to the lineup, and his power
theoretically would play up even
more at Yankee Stadium.
For the Mets, Duda is in his walk
year and not in their future plans.
They want to give Dominic Smith a
two-month audition this year to see
if he is ready for next season anyway, when the Mets plan to contend again.
The problem is that it is hard
to find many current contenders
clamoring for a first base/DH type.
Perhaps the Mariners, but they are
concentrating on using their chips
to deepen their pitching staff — so
Addison Reed is way more likely
than Duda.
So the Yanks might be the only
place to send Duda, and the Mets
might as well get the best possible
return rather than just lose him for
nothing in the offseason, because I
do not see them making him a qualifying offer.
The Yankees are positioned
to give the Mets several items,
because they are going to have
trouble fitting all the players they
like on the 40-man roster.
The Mets were caught this year
without enough quality bullpen
options, so they can pick who they
like best from Holder, Heller, Feyereisen and Gallegos. All had their
futures with the Yankees further
blocked by the addition of Tommy
Kahnle and David Robertson, both
of whom are under control through
at least next year.
The Mets were
caught this year
without enough
legitimate
starting depth
HARDBALL a t Tr i p l e -A .
So, they can pick
from German or Herrera, who also
could serve as power-armed relief
options. For the Yankees, they have
others ahead of that duo on their
depth chart.
Austin or Cooper could be a
righty complement to Smith and/or
insurance and/or a bench bat. Neither has a long-term role for the Yankees, who still envision Greg Bird as
their first baseman of the future.
As for Refsnyder, who currently
is designated for assignment and
must be traded by Wednesday or
subjected to waivers, he fits Sandy
Alderson’s offense over defense
philosophy.
I always have wondered if Refsnyder could be Daniel Murphy lite.
Refsnyder has terrific bat-to-ball
skills and no obvious defensive
position, but if he could learn what
Murphy did along the way — the
ability to pull the ball in the air for
damage — could his value rise?
Just as a comparison, in 2008, at
age 23, Murphy — at A, Double-A
and Triple-A — combined to hit .315
with a .379 on-base percentage and
a .493 slugging percentage. In 2014,
at age 23, Refsnyder, at Double-A
Joel
Sherman
and Triple-A,
combined to hit
.318 with a .387 onbase percentage an
a .497 slugging percentage.
Here are some other
thoughts on where the
Mets could send their
available players. These are
all my ideas — not something I have
been told is possible — and mostly
informed by the Mets not having
overly attractive chips and needing
to turn them into something rather
than lose them for nothing:
n Addison Reed to the
Rockies for Tom Murphy and
Colton Welker. Greg Holland,
Jack McGee and Chris Rusin have
been the only dependable Colorado relievers, and the team is worried about burning them out in the
hunt for a wild card. Murphy, after
a strong cameo last year, has struggled in 2017 with a broken hand and
poor performance in the majors.
He becomes a catching option for
the Mets next year if they move on
from Travis d’Arnaud. Welker is a
19-year-old third baseman tearing
up low-A. The Mets must be careful not to overplay their hand with
Reed, because there are plenty of
righty relief options available such
as Atlanta’s Jim Johnson, Philadelphia’s Pat Neshek and Baltimore’s
Brad Brach.
n Asdrubal Cabrera to the
Indians for Yandy Diaz. The
Indians could use Cabrera to play
second until Jason Kipnis returns
from a hamstring strain, and then
he would become a switch-hitter
off the bench. Diaz did not do well
with his major league debut this
year, but he offers on-base possibilities and defense at third in
the future for the Mets. Cabrera
played his first 7 1/2 seasons with
the Indians.
n Jay Bruce
Br
to the Royals
for Nate Karns. Kansas City is
trying to go for it in what is almost
certainly the final year with the
team for walk-year Lorenzo Cain,
Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas.
DH Brandon Moss has come alive
a bit, but Bruce provides depth
there and plays right field, with
Jorge Bonifacio becoming a fourth
outfielder. Karns is a wild card for
the Mets. He just had thoracic outlet surgery. If he makes it back, the
righty provides depth for either the
2018 rotation or bullpen.
n Curtis Granderson to
the Mariners for Max Povse.
Granderson could be a lefty counter-balance for Mitch Haniger or
Guillermo Heredia and, perhaps,
even play some center field to
provide better offense than Jarrod
Dyson, with Dyson able to come
in late as a defensive replacement.
For the Mets, this is mainly about
salary relief. Seattle is one of the
few teams that has indicated
some
indica
willingness to take on salary at this
time of year, plus one of the few
that could make a case for a player
such as Granderson. Thus, the
Mets cannot ask for much in return
beyond that, and Povse becomes
more Triple-A pitching depth.
n Neil Walker to the Brewers
for Jacob Nottingham and Freddy Peralta. This is predicated on
Walker showing he is healthy, of
course. Jonathan Villar has underperformed this season. Eric Sogard
likely will get regular playing time
at second. But if Milwaukee got
Walker, Sogard becomes more of a
super-sub and Walker — with lots
of big-game experience and years
in the NL Central — brings veteran
stability to a young team in a playoff
race. The Mets hope Nottingham
can regain better prospect status as
a catcher and take a flyer on a good
arm in Peralta.

Castro
back on
DL with
hammy
By GEORGE A. KING III
nypost.com
SEATTLE — Starlin Castro
will go on the disabled list Sunday for the second time in less
than a month with a right hamstring problem.
According to manager Joe Girardi, Castro re-injured the hamstring Wednesday in Minneapolis beating out an infield single
to third. He remained in that
game and played nine innings
both Thursday and Friday.
YANKEES NOTES
“It’s frustrating and he is frustrated,’’ Girardi said of the second
baseman whose 97 hits in 73
games are second on the team to
Aaron Judge’s 105 in 94 tilts. Girardi said Castro, who is hitting
.307, balked at going on the shelf
but the move couldn’t be avoided
when the area became discolored.
“Wednesday, he iced it after the
game,” Girardi said. “Thursday
he said he was a little tight. Friday
the blood showed up, and that’s
when we knew we had an issue.’’
Tyler Wade will take Castro’s
place on the 25-man roster, and
Girardi said he will platoon the
left-handed hitting Wade with
Ronald Torreyes at second.
Wade filled in for Castro the last time he was
on the DL. In nine
games he hit .107 (3for-28), but Girardi
said Wade put together
better at-bats toward the end.
➤
Moving from third to first
base Thursday has forced
Chase Headley to learn a new
position on the fly, but it hasn’t
cut into the hot streak the
switch-hitter is on at the plate.
Headley went 2-for-4 in Friday night’s 5-1 win over the
Mariners and was batting .320
(40-for-125) in the previous 36
games going into Saturday
night’s action. Since June 7
Headley has raised the batting
average from .232 to .263.
He wasn’t in the lineup Saturday and flied out as a pinch-hitter in the ninth.

THIRD RAIL: Jose Reyes
rounds second base en
route to a sixth-inning triple
Saturday against the A’s.
Paul J. Bereswill
It isn’t easy to find a silver lining in a team that has disappointed as much as the Mets,
even after an uplifting 6-5 win
over the A’s on Saturday night.
But if that silver lining does exist, it comes in the form of Jose
Reyes.
In the second inning of Saturday night’s contest, Reyes hit a
triple, a 401-foot rocket to center
field. In the sixth inning, Reyes
hit a second triple, this one into
the left field corner, prompting a
mad dash around second and a
headfirst dive into third. The
crowd of 39,629 reached a fever
pitch and, just for a moment,
Reyes may as well have been 25
again.
“I thought that [Khris Davis]
was going to catch that ball,”
Reyes said of his second threebagger. “I was kind of jogging all
the way to first base and then
when I saw [Davis] tumbling out
there I said, ‘Oh man, you have
to run faster.’ ”
Reyes would come around to
score on an RBI single by Travis
d’Arnaud, part of a rally in which
the Mets scored four runs.
The man who led the National
League in triples three times
from 2005-08 has been in rare
form this month. Coming into
tonight, his slash line in July was
.351/.356/.614, an out-of-nowhere
hot streak that gives baseball
fans flashbacks.
The unlikelihood of this
shouldn’t be lost on anyone.
Coming into this month, Reyes
was hitting .202, his on-base percentage at a measly .276. He
looked like a dead man walking.
Including Saturday, he has 16 triples — the same number with
which he led the league in 2011
— since 2013.
“I feel like I’ve been contributing to this ballclub lately. I wasn’t
able to do that, that was the frustrating part early in the year for
me,” Reyes said. “I wasn’t able to
do anything to help this ballclub
and now I feel like I contribute
every single night, so that’s
pretty good to see.”
Reyes isn’t the glimpse into
the future that Amed Rosario
and Michael Conforto will provide as the Mets head into the
home stretch of a disappointing
season. In fact, he is a look back
to a decade ago. But nobody
should be penalized for reminiscing, especially when the
present is so bleak.

Versatility may get Cabrera to contender

The Mets are playing to win —
the best trade deadline haul possible.
Asdrubal Cabrera made his
first-ever start at third base Saturday night against the A’s, with the

According to multiple reports,
the Red Sox, Indians and Mariners have interest in Cabrera.
“When we got into this with him,
I talked about what the Cubs did.

It is hard to envision the Mets
reaching the postseason for a third
straight year. It is hard to imagine
the Mets leaping multiple teams,
overcoming numerous injuries and
reversing so much of what has gone
wrong for so much of an unexpectedly disappointing season.
After four straight wins, it is a little easier to see the Mets keeping
their miraculous hopes alive a little
bit longer. It is a lot easier when you
see Wilmer Flores rounding the
bases after hitting a walk-off home
run at Citi Field, reviving one of the
best memories in recent team history.
Despite giving up four runs in the
first inning and trailing by five entering the sixth, the Mets kept their
winning streak intact with an unlikely comeback Saturday night,
with Flores delivering a two-out
home run in the ninth to seal the 6-5
win over the A’s.
“We know there’s still a lot of
baseball left,” Jose Reyes said. “We
know it’s not going to be easy, but
we believe.”
Flores, who crushed a fastball
from Simon Castro to left, jogged to
a mob at home plate for the second
time in his career — the first since
his memorable shot to beat the Nationals just before the 2015 trade
deadline, when the infielder instantly became a fan favorite after
tearing up on the field, believing he
was leaving the Mets.

“As a hitter, you don’t want to try
and do too much, but at the same
time you want to do something, so
you have to try and control that,”
Flores said. “We didn’t give up. Every inning we were battling.
“We’re not thinking about [selling], we’re thinking about how to
win. We’re not thinking about we’re
some games out, or we’re not playing good. every time we’re out there
we’re thinking about winning.”
A large crowd of nearly 40,000
fans had been lured to the stadium
early to receive a Noah Syndergaard bobblehead giveaway, and it
looked like they would be able to
cut their evenings short, watching
another Mets starter failing to make
up for the ace’s lengthy absence.
Zack Wheeler gave Oakland the
lead two pitches into the game, allowing a leadoff homer to Matt
Joyce, and needed 36 pitches to end
the first inning after giving up four
runs.
Wheeler surrendered another
solo homer in the third to Matt
Chapman, but held Oakland without a run over the next two frames.
Wheeler, who is 0-4 with a 7.05 ERA
over his past six starts, called his
performance “unacceptable,” lasting five innings, allowing five runs,
seven hits and four walks, while
striking out six.
Manager Terry Collins took it
easier on the struggling righthander.
“Zack Wheeler could’ve let that
game get out of control and he did
not,” Collins said. “I told him when
I took him out, ‘I know we’re down
5-0, but you kept it 5-0 … and allowed us to get back in the game.’ I
know it doesn’t seem like much …
but he battled through it.”
When Wheeler left, the Mets’ offense emerged, with Flores opening
the sixth with a double. Jay Bruce followed with a two-run homer to center — his team-leading 25th of the
season — and Reyes delivered his
second triple, scoring on a Travis
d’Arnaud single to make it 5-3.
Michael Conforto then cut the deficit
to one with a two-out double to left.
The Mets’ bullpen of Josh
Smoker, Josh Edgin and Hansel
Robles combined for four innings
of scoreless relief, making it possible for the Mets to tie the game in
the eighth, when d’Arnaud hit a
two-out double and pinch-hitter
Lucas Duda drove him in with a single up the middle.
Then came Flores, a late July hero
once more.
A game that should have gotten
away belonged to the Mets. What
seemed impossible had been
achieved.
“There’s two months left,” Asdrubal Cabrera said. “Nothing’s
done yet. We got to keep playing
good baseball, and then we’ll see
where we are.”

when he hit a game-tying, eighthinning pinch-hit home run against
the Cardinals in a game the Mets
would win in the ninth on Jose
Reyes’ infield hit.
But he will be part of it as the
Mets seek to make an unlikely run
even while they likely are to be
disassembled. The Yankees of
2016, among other teams, proved
there can be life after being sellers at the deadline.
Flores was at
second base in
this one while
Cabrera started
at third base for
the first time in
his major league
career. It marked the fourth start
in 17 games for Flores, who entered with just 18 at-bats since
July 1. Yet, he delivered with a 2for-5 performance that included a
double to lead off the sixth.
“It’s his work ethic,” manager
Terry Collins said. “Last year
when he primarily played sporadically, he learned how to keep
himself ready. It’s a tough job
when you’re used to playing every
day.”
The Mets have won four
straight games to climb within
five games of .500 at 45-50. But
they are still 10 games behind the
Rockies for the second wild-card
spot and with five teams over
which to leapfrog in order to secure a playoff spot.
“You’re not thinking about how
many games out you are,” said
Flores, slashing .284/.312/.473
with nine homers and 28 RBI in
222 at-bats. “You think about how
to win. Every time you go onto
the field, you get ready to win the
game that day.
“What’s in the past is in the
past.”
The past, of course, includes
2015, for which his team is celebrated for winning the NL pennant and he is celebrated for the
tears he shed when he thought he
was gone, every bit as much as for
his on-field accomplishments.
If it is a stretch to call Flores,
“beloved,” it is probably not by
much.
“I wasn’t thinking about that,”
he said when asked if he had
flashbacks to the Washington
game while rounding the bases.
“But it was the same feeling.”
Deja blue-and-orange all over
again.

HE last time — the only other
time — Wilmer Flores had
clubbed a walk-off home run
came on that unforgettable July
30 night two years ago against the
Nationals in the wake of his tearful near-trade to the Brewers.
This time, when he hit one into
the first row of the lower left-field
stands against Oakland righthander Simon Castro in the bottom of the ninth
inning on Saturday to give the
Mets a stirring
6-5 victory in
game they had
trailed 5-0 in the
third, it is another trade season.
“As a hitter, you don’t want to
try to do too much in that situation but you want to do something,” said Flores, who turned on
a 1-0 fastball. “You have to try and
control that.”
Flores has no control over personnel decisions, but this time
around, while up to a half-dozen
of his teammates may be sent
elsewhere before the next homestand commences on Aug. 4,
Flores is not expected to be involved in the festivities.
For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, Flores is a Met,
just as he has been since signing
with the organization as an international free agent when he celebrated his 16th birthday on Aug. 6,
2007.
“You get used to one place, obviously you don’t want to leave,”
Flores said while wearing the ceremonial crown and robe awarded
to the team’s hero of the day. “All
my friends are here. I want to
stay.”
Lucas Duda may be going and
so, too, Asdrubal Cabrera. Jay
Bruce, who socked his 25th home
run to ignite a four-run rally in
the sixth that started the Mets on
the way back, could be on his way
out. The same for Addison Reed.
But when the dust settles following this July 31 non-waivers
deadline, Flores still will be wearing the Met uniform general manager Sandy Alderson had intended to rip off his chest two
years ago in the aborted trade for
Carlos Gomez that also included
Zack Wheeler.
Flores may be playing first base,
he may be at second base, third
base or providing a bat off the

By GEORGE A. KING III
SEATTLE — The Yankees will
try to win a series for the first time
since June on Sunday when they
finish a long road trip at Safeco
Field.
They could have done that Saturday night when, down to their
last strike in the ninth inning, the
Yankees watched Ronald Torreyes
deliver a run-scoring single that
tied the score.
An inning later Adam Warren
gave up a leadoff double to exYankee Ben Gamel that led to an
RBI single by Nelson Cruz that
lifted the Mariners to a 6-5 win in
10 innings that was witnessed by
46,197.
Though the game was lost in the
10th, the night turned in the eighth
inning when Robinson Cano took
a pitch from David Robertson over
the left-field wall for an opposite
field homer on a pitch Robertson

said couldn’t have been any better.
“That pitch was as good as I can
throw it,’’ Robertson said of the 93
mph fastball that
was away. “Tip MARINERS
your hat to a really
YANKEES
good hitter.’’
Sunday is the finale of an 11-games-in-10-days road
trip, and the Yankees have a
chance to win a series for the first
time since June 9-11 when they
swept three from the Orioles.
However, though Masahiro
Tanaka gave up four runs in six innings Saturday night and is now
tied for the AL lead in homers allowed with 26, the Yankees are
turning to Caleb Smith who will
make his first big
league start in his
6
10 innings second
game.

Which means the
Yankees’
best
chance to win a rare series was
wasted.
Until late Saturday night the
Yankees had Luis Cessa who is 0-3
with a 4.61 ERA in seven games
(four starts), listed as Sunday’s
starter.
Since the Red Sox lost, the 50-46
Yankees notes / Page 87
Yankees remained 3 ½ games back
of the AL East leaders and tied
with the Rays for second place.
“It’s frustrating because we
never got the lead,’’ manager Joe
Girardi said. “We kept fighting
back, never got the lead and then
couldn’t hold them off.’’
Actually, the Yankees led, 1-0, in
the second but it cost them a double-play grounder by Todd Frazier
to score the run. That lasted until
the home third when Tanaka gave
up four runs. After that the former
ace was very good but the damage
was deep.
“The third inning wasn’t good,’’
said Tanaka, who gave up four
runs and seven hits in six innings.
“I tried to turn things around and
put up zeroes after that.’’
He did and was rewarded with
single runs in the fifth and sixth
innings. Matt Holliday’s sacrifice
fly in the eighth tied the score, 4-4.

Tanaka is Yanks’ ‘ace’ in a hole
S
EATTLE — Some ace.
Here is what Masahiro
Tanaka has aced this season
when the Yankees run him out to
the mound every five days: He has
become the ace of surrendering
home runs.
Tanaka surrendered four runs in
the third inning, two on solo home
runs to No. 9 hitter Mike Zunino
and ex-Yankee Ben Gamel, greasing the skids for a terrible 6-5, 10inning loss to the Mariners on Saturday night at Safeco Field.
The Yankees battled back all
night, after Tanaka lost control of
the game early.
Gamel was involved in the gamewinner, too. He never really was
given a chance by the Yankees, and
he delighted in beating them. He
led off the top of the 10th with a
double off Adam Warren.
Then after an intentional walk to
Robinson Cano,
who broke a 4-4 tie
on a first-pitch
home run against
his old Yankees
teammate David
Robertson in the
eighth,
Nelson
Cruz lashed a walk-off single to left
to score Gamel.
Tanaka has now surrendered a
career-high 26 home runs this season. There is no doubt that young
Luis Severino is the Yankees’ true
ace and Tanaka is not even holding
up his end of the bargain to be a
No. 3 starter. He pitches much
more like a fifth starter, a pitcher
opponents know will crack at
some point in the game.
That point came early — in that
third inning.
Tanaka threw a
mediocre fastball
that Zunino hit out
for his 14th home
run, and then a
weak curveball to
Gamel for his sixth
home run.
Afterward, manager Joe Girardi was left scratching
his head about his supposed ace.
Tanaka now owns a 5.37 ERA.
Brutal. Tanaka has allowed at least
two home runs in eight of his 20
starts this season. Opposing hitters
hit the jackpot against the righthander.
“His stuff wasn’t very good,’’
Girardi began. “For whatever
reason, that inning, his stuff kind
of went away from him. Then he
found it again. He had it, he lost
Kevin Kernan
it and then he found it.’’
Trouble is, by the time Tanaka
finds his stuff, home runs have
flown out of the ballpark and
crooked numbers are put up on the
scoreboard, the stuff of fifth starters.
“It was frustrating he couldn’t
get out of that inning,’’ Girardi
added. “He gave up the two home
runs, got the second out, nobody
was on and then he gave up two
more runs and that’s the frustrating part.’’
So it’s home runs and much
more, as Tanaka gave up three singles and hit a batter also in that
third inning.
Perhaps the worst of this is that
Tanaka never has any real answers
to the questions that plague him. It
is a similar refrain after his poor
starts.
“I wasn’t executing pitchers, ob-

— a deep hole
viously that inning,’’ Tanaka said
through an interpreter. “But I felt
that throughout the game I really
didn’t have my best stuff. I don’t
think any of my pitches were sharp.’’
Therein lies the big problem.
Tanaka just does not have the ability
to dig deep and overcome his problems. He can’t find a way to limit the
damage when things start to go
south. There is just not a lot of grit
there. He can’t stop the bleeding.
Aces find a way.
“After putting up some zeroes after
that third inning is a positive I can
take out of this game,’’ Tanaka said.
How about coming up with a positive to win a game and not have an
ERA of 5.37.
As for all the home runs, Tanaka
said, “It’s disappointing. It’s what it
is and you’ve just got to keep on
fighting.’’
That is all well and good, but
it would be nice to start fighting. It would be nice to show
a little more mental toughness and more of a winning will on the mound.
Along the way Aaron
Judge’s MLB-leading
32nd home run was
wasted as were two
hits by fellow rookie
Clint Frazier and a

lefty they didn’t protect in last December’s Rule 5 draft
SEATTLE — As long as
Clint Frazier produces, Jacoby
Ellsbury is going to be a very
expensive spare part on the
Yankees’ bench.
For the second straight game
and third in five, Ellsbury
wasn’t in the starting lineup
against the Mariners on Saturday night at Safeco Field, but
he did get in as a pinch runner,
scoring the tying run in the
ninth before the Yankees

Frazier had five hits his past

and was hitting .296 (8-for-27)
in the previous seven games.
Frazier went 2-for-5 with three

“It’s a very good feeling to

that his playing time will be reduced, though since returning
from a concussion, Ellsbury’s
bat has been frigid.
“It’s tough to tell a player
who has had a really good career that you are going with
someone who is younger and
has the hot hand,’’ Girardi said
of the 33-year-old Ellsbury,
who has three years after this
one and $68 million remaining
on the deal he inked before the
2014 season. “The big thing is
that we aren’t saying it’s permanent, but when [Ellsbury]
gets his chances, it’s important
he plays well.’’
The question is, how many
chances will Ellsbury get?
“I realize when I started the
first two months of the year I
played really well,’’ Ellsbury
said. “Then I had a concussion,
and the last three weeks the
production hasn’t been the
same since then. I am looking
forward to getting back to the
first two months.’’

WIL TO WIN
Where there’s a Wilmer, there’s a way. Down 5-0 after three innings, the Mets refused to give up Saturday against the A’s at Citi Field. After
rallying to pull even in the eighth, Wilmer Flores capped an Amazin’ finish with a walk-off home run for a 6-5 victory. PAGES 89-87
