In all fairness, Exhibit B came about because of an article from the NY Daily News, not a LI newspaper. Seeing as she's the 'LI Lolita' where else should she be discussed?

FWIW -- did you happen to see the before and after pictures?

Yes it should be discussed there, but she is no credit to LI. neither is buttafuco, lohans, gottis, jerdey shore cast members and diane shuler who murdered people in our county.

what my LI friends say is that I am only focusing on the some south shore towns and it is not representative of all of LI. they are prob right. People I know from manhasset, sysosset and stony brook get steamed when i bring up buttafuco.

the whole palce has bad traffic though

Yes, your friends are right. You are focusing in on a few towns which are not representative of LI and LIers as a whole. I grew up in Massapequa, and was more familiar with the mob types, the Stray Cats, and Jessica Hahn. Buttafuoco was long after I left. I don't get steamed up by it -- why bother -- I am not like them, they are not me.

I live in the Three Village area (Stony Brook, Setauket, Old Field) and it is another world compared to the south shore where I grew up.

The traffic -- meh -- depends on the time of day and direction you're traveling in. I wouldn't want to commute to NYC!

OGP is from NYC, but what does that change? I read tri-state area threads and some of the general stuff. To me CD is much more about learning about other areas than it is bragging of your own. Does my residence make my question less credible? How was I supposed to know LI people would chime in and this would become a LI vs. Westchester thread?

OGP, i was just saying they were inplying that a westchester person was making the comment b/c we are snooty or something.

the fact you do not come from westchester lends more credence to your statements, you are an uninterested observer. i also read forums from away, i already know how it is where i live.

LI is a very self conscious place....

You make it sound like it's a prison or something!

At least we don't want the world to stop so we can get off!
