Yeah, me calling you "dude" and you get hung-up over it. Sounds just as nice as one hand clapping.
thats true, but thats not what he did. someone was paid to put that video together. he had staff working on what would be said and what would be shown. i can take a video with my handycam and post it to youtube no cost. thats not what he did. that video cost money.

why am i explaining this to you? isnt this simple enough to figure out as it is?

yeah, im all riled up because you called me a dude. im just pointing out that its silly.

I would pay a large sum of money to see this turned into a Tonight Show gag at the Springsteen shows this weekend.

I could see it now: NJSP escorting Max off the stage...

But of course...some part of you must care (or least take some interest in) b/c you commented. A fair observation.

looks like mayor booker and conan o'brien will be continuing their "feud" in person on the tonight show:

The Associated Press: Newark mayor to settle feud on 'Tonight Show'

NEWARK, N.J. — Goodbye YouTube, hello "Tonight Show."

Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who has garnered national attention for his passionate defense of the crime-plagued New Jersey city, is taking his act to airwaves.

"Tonight Show" host Conan O'Brien, who has been engaged in a playful feud with Booker since Sept. 23, has scheduled Booker to appear Friday on the NBC show.

The exchange began when O'Brien poked fun at Booker's new health care plan for gritty Newark — long an icon for urban decay — saying it consisted of a bus ticket out of town.

Booker fought back with a humorous response on the YouTube video Web site in which he "banned" the 46-year-old redhead from Newark Liberty Airport.

Default lemonade from lemons

Can't do anything about the crime in Newark, make jokes and interview for the next job as a news analyst with a mayor's pedigree.

Booker does a comedy act while Newark gets shot up....only in a Democartic run state!

This wouldn't have worked for Nero or Bush but Booker gets accolades for his comedy act while the city burns.

Enjoy!

Yeah right, look at this guy Kevin Lewis, he LIVES in Newark and is TRYING to make a difference but the idiots in newark do NOT want to change and instead want to kill this guy because he wants to make newark a better place

Newark's own people have to change to make a difference, a thousand police offers won't make a difference. Being a resident of Newark, I know all people aren't idiots just a select few.. but those few can cause such a mess killing and shooting people.

I absolutely agree. A lot of folks just want the mayor to do all the work, but like you said: 1000 police officers does not a better Newark make.

We need more Kevin Lewis-types
