Gov. Cuomo: No future for medical pot bill in 2012

Fire. Staten Island

Staten Island senator pitched law that would have made New York 17th state to legalize medicinal pot But governor says risks outweigh benefits {page 02} Metropolitik

A driver in Staten Island snapped photos of the brush fire from the West Shore Expressway.

This week’s combination of low humidity and high winds of up to 40 miles per hour make ideal conditions for dangerous brush fires, and a massive five-alarm blaze broke out at the Fresh Kills landfill site on Staten Island yesterday. Officials said last night the blaze could burn for days as it tears through brush and mulch, and heavy traffic delays due to the fire were reported. {page 02}

A state senator from Staten Island proposed legalizing medical marijuana, saying both of her parents would have benefited from it while they were fighting cancer.

Don’t hold your breath for medical marijuana to become legalized in New York state soon, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo snuffed out any hope of that yesterday. The governor spoke to reporters yesterday, saying that he doesn’t think legalizing medical marijuana will happen this year. “I understand the benefits, but there are also risks, and I think the risks outweigh the benefits at this point,” Cuomo told reporters, according to Capital Tonight. He went on to add, “I don’t think there’s going to be time this legislative session to analyze that issue.” After last summer, when gay marriage was legalized in the state, many were hoping

medicinal pot might be the next big announcement. But Staten Island state Sen. Diane Savino told Metro last night she has not lost hope.

Savino co-sponsored the state bill to legalize medical marijuana. Right now, medical marijuana is legal in New Jersey, along with 15 other

Dry air, high winds cause Staten Island brush fire STATEN ISLAND. A fast-moving, five-alarm brush fire on Staten Island may burn for the next few days, fire officials warned. The fire, stretching for a half-mile, broke out at the Fresh Kills landfill yesterday afternoon and caused a traffic nightmare on the island. One driver reported seeing flames jump across the West Shore Expressway. An-

states. “He’s not saying no,” she told Metro of Cuomo’s public reservations. “He’s expressing a concern he has, which he’s been consistent about.” But Savino also cautioned that pushing the bill through by June, when the legislative session ends, might be a task too daunting for Albany. “I would be deluding myself if I thought we were going to be able to do this by the end of the legislative session,” she said. Savino added that she’d be “thrilled” if it passes by June, but, “I won’t be surprised if it takes a little bit more time.” Proponents of medical marijuana say that it can help people struggling with crippling illnesses, helping to alleviate

pain and other symptoms in patients that are not solved by other medications. Savino has said that both of her late parents were unable to be treated for chronic pain while fighting cancer, and that medical marijuana would have helped them. Her bill would allow seriously ill patients to buy the drug through a registered facility with a doctor’s approval. Patients could possess no more than 2.5 ounces at a time. But critics of the bill maintain that the bill’s language is not specific enough and worry that the drug might fall into the wrong hands. ALISON BOWEN

This type of polo is not for horses Polo goes urban — and on a bike Once a week, ragtag team meets at ‘The Pit’ in Chinatown for some contact sports on wheels Breaking a finger? Knocking loose a tooth? It’s all just part of the fun A man on a bicycle lifted his mallet and blasted a street hockey ball between two orange cones for the game-winning goal. The players converge every Sunday, and sometimes on Thursdays, at “The Pit” — an asphalt court on the corner of Chrystie and Broome streets in Chinatown — for a pickup game of 3-on-3 bike polo. The

game involves pedaling quickly, stopping and starting on a dime, and occasionally colliding into each other. Bike polo is similar to equestrian polo, except that the playing space is much smaller and light contact is allowed. Occasionally, someone will break a finger or lose a tooth, players admit. But that hasn’t stopped the sport from taking off in

popularity. “It’s one of those things where once you catch the bug you’re hooked,” said Sean McCormack, a freelance photographer who drove 15,000 miles last year just to play in bike polo tournaments. He called “The Pit” a fabled court that is “almost the mecca of the East Coast.” The sport was invented in Ireland in the 1890s. But it fell out of favor until a group of Seattle bike messengers formed a new incarnation in the late 1990s. Today, it is played in more than 300 cities worldwide. JESSE GREENSPAN

Watch ’em play Looking for a cheap way to spend your Sunday? Games are held every Sunday at “The Pit” from 2 p.m until dark, and benches surround the court. They also sometimes play on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday games are held at various courts in Brooklyn, and Thursday matches can either be in Brooklyn or at the court in Chinatown.

On a normal Sunday, about 12 to 20 bike enthusiasts head down to the “The Pit.” Many more play at tournaments, such as the upcoming East Side Polo Invitational, which will pit a team from New York City against teams from Boston; Washington, D.C.; Richmond, Va.; Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. The tournament will be held in New York this weekend. A North American champion will be crowned in Milwaukee later this year.

B attack dog James O’Keefe released the latest in his series of misleading “gotcha” videos yesterday, evidently exposing the need for voter ID laws by capturing one of his operatives committing said fraud. In the new hidden camera video, an actor requests and nearly receives a ballot for U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who opposes ID laws. (Instead of taking the ballot, a federal crime, he leaves under the pretense of grabbing his ID.) O’Keefe contrasts the ease of receiving a fraudulent ballot with video of Holder saying



U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

the issue is “a problem that does not exist” and that “there is no proof” that it does. The video prankster’s message is clear: Here’s the proof that voter ID laws are needed to prevent this pernicious evil. Of course, nonpartisan law institute Brennan Center for Justice points out “that voter fraud is essentially irrational,” “that no credible evidence suggests a voter fraud epidemic” and that “it happens approximately 0.0009 percent of the time,” a statistically negligible level. Others note that one vote holds very little sway and

that the consequences of subverting democracy can be quite harsh. (A $10,000 fine, five years in prison.) The logic behind an organized voter fraud campaign, therefore, would be exceptionally thin.


ut then, this whole ginned-up controversy was never about protecting the sanctity of the voting box. What O’Keefe and his allies take pains to neglect is the fact that voter ID laws tend to disproportionally affect the poor and minorities, who may not

There is no evidence to suggest that such fraud is a problem; but for the GOP, minority voters do pose a problem come November. O’Keefe and continue the right-wing tradition of “proving” to voters that government doesn’t work ... by breaking it themselves. (“We must start unwinnable foreign wars!

Metro’s Dorothy Robinson shares her take on the world of gossip

Katy Perry is ‘tired’ of her fabricated fame Oh boo-hoo: Katy Perry, one of the most manufactured pop stars of the past decade, is fed up with fame, according to Teen Vogue. “I’m tired of being famous already! But I’m not tired of creating. Fame is, I think, just a disgusting byproduct of what I do,” Perry tells the magazine. “It’s a delicate creature — a wild animal of sorts. It can love you, and then it can attack you. But really, I stopped focusing on what other people think a while ago.” Oh, so you wearing an ice cream bra, marrying a superfamous actor and then divorcing him, riding “Teenage Dream” into the ground until it yielded as many No. 1 singles as “Thriller” and then recently releasing yet another version of that 2010 album (“Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection”) are all ploys to keep you under the radar? Yes, that totally makes sense. Being famous and then complaining about being famous is so tiring. You can give it all up and live in a yurt, you know. It’s not that hard to not be a celebrity anymore. Just look at Tiffany. You can do that, too!

Katy Perry says she’s tired of being famous. Anyone else tired of that lie?


Lopez is the ultimate sugar mama When it comes to her boy toy’s birthday, Jennifer Lopez, 42, really goes big. The singer reportedly gifted beau/backup dancer Casper Smart with a custom white Dodge pickup truck for his 25th birthday, according to People magazine. Lopez “knew that Casper really wanted a truck, and Casper was very excited about the generous gift,” a source says. “Casper was so excited about his new truck that he decided to drive it to dinner. She was smiling about Casper’s excitement.” OK, first of all, whoever this “source” is needs to stop sounding like a quote-giving robot; no one talks like that. Second, considering how much shilling she’s been doing for Fiat, it’s surprising Lopez would buy American. Third: Isn’t dating Jennifer Lopez a gift enough? Smart better not get greedy.

Play (and read) ball! From biographies to Grisham’s latest, ’tis the season for baseball books Here are eight titles that make for a great lineup — for your bookshelf ‘Calico Joe’ By John Grisham America’s most well-known writer of legal thrillers tries his hand at a novel about baseball. The namesake of the book, Joe Castle, is a young player called up to the majors, who immediately excels before an accident changes everything. It’s sappy, but fans of “Field of Dreams” will eat it up.

New release


‘Imperfect: An Improbable Life’ By Jim Abbott and Tim Brown You’d be hard-pressed to find a more inspiring story in sports history than that of Abbott, who was born with no right hand. Yankees fans remember his no-hitter from 1993, but read about the struggle it took to get to the majors and the many he inspired in this biography.

Biologist E.O. Wilson takes on human behavior At the outset of his new book, “The Social Conquest of Earth,” biologist E.O. Wilson takes an admiring look at Paul Gauguin’s “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?,” the artist’s 12-foot-wide Tahitian masterpiece.

‘Hack’s 191: Hack Wilson and His Incredible 1930 Season’

‘Summer of ’68: The Season that Changed Baseball — and America — Forever’

By Bill Chastain Hack Wilson might have had the greatest single season in MLB history in 1930, yet very few people have even heard of him. The 5-foot-6 Wilson hit 56 homers and drove in a record 191 runs that season, but forget the absurdity of those numbers and realize Wilson’s best friend was Al Capone and he spent every night in Chicago’s Prohibition-era speakeasies getting drunk and brawling with patrons.

By Tim Wendel If you’re looking for the combination of the greatest year of baseball and most incendiary in American culture, here’s your winner. “Summer of ’68” is wound around historical events, such as the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy while St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Bob Gibson (probably the greatest African-American pitcher ever) blew away records as race riots raged.

“I was enchanted by that,” Wilson says. “This great artist has got it; he knows that these are the great questions of religion and philosophy, and few people have been willing to state them so baldly. And I said, let’s see if we can answer those questions.” His attempt, in partnership with two Harvard mathematicians, is spelled out in a new and controversial theory of human evolution. One of the world’s preeminent biologists, Wilson is no stranger to controversy, and at 82 has lived to

‘Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball’ By R.A. Dickey and Wayne Coffey There’s just something about knuckleballers that makes them fascinating. Dickey was a heralded draft pick in 1996, only to fail a physical when a team doctor found out he had no ulnar collateral ligament in his right, pitching arm. Good news: He would never need Tommy John surgery. Bad news: Doctors didn’t know how he could even throw a ball, let alone pitch. Dickey writes about his transition to becoming the current master of the knuckler in MLB.

Extra innings ‘Driving Mr. Yogi: Yogi Berra, Ron Guidry, and Baseball’s Greatest Gift’ By Harvey Araton This is the story of baseball’s most-quotable character and his unlikely friendship with Yankees legend Ron Guidry. ‘Out of My League’ By Dirk Hayhurst Ever wonder what it would be like if you were a journeyman minor leaguer? Of course not. You dreamt of being Nolan Ryan, not Dirk Hayhurst. Hayhurst’s second book details his six-year journey to the majors in honest detail. ‘Season of ’42: Joe D., Teddy Ballgame, and Baseball’s Fight to Survive a First Year of War’ By Jack Kavanaugh Though it won’t be out until next month, the Pulitzer prizenominated Kavanaugh’s book is already hotly anticipated. The battle between the Yankees and Red Sox, led by their stars Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams, is set against the backdrop of America’s entrance into World War II.


see many of his most radical theories become common knowledge. “I go farther, I think, than anyone has gone before in trying to provide a biological explanation for the origins of some of the most important human behaviors that have also been considered the most elusive or indefinable,” Wilson explains. “That includes morality, honor, religion and creative arts.” The book’s tale encompasses our earliest human ancestors, Biblical stories, early

music and even Wilson’s beloved ants. In the end, though, from this complicated saga of biological evolution and competing impulses, Wilson hopes for one very simply stated goal: “A more enlightened, secular view of the world.”

How to report abuse

Parenting CREATAS

What to do if you suspect child abuse Child abuse happens more often than you might think. But how is it characterized, and what can you do if you suspect that a child is at risk? “Abuse is an epidemic problem,” says Mary Pulido, executive director of The New York Society

If you see a child being abused on the street, or hear a child screaming in pain, call 911. “Police are trained to respond to sensitive calls,” Pulido says. If, as a concerned friend or neighbor, you have a suspicion that a child is being abused, call the child abuse hotline. Every state has an abuse hotline. In New York, the number is (800) 3423720. “You’re going to be anxious while making the report,” Pulido says. “[But] it’s very important that you’re doing it. Due to your intervention, you can be saving a life.”

for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. It’s different from neglect, which is the absence of care from a parent or guardian — like when children are left alone in a car or not getting the medicines they need. Abuse is on the opposite side of the continuum, when a parent or guardian is intentionally hurting a child. Although Pulido notes that sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish whether an injury comes from playing or from abuse, she says that there are ways you can tell if something is amiss. “[Abuse] is not a one-shot deal, usually,” Pulido says. “You’re going to see bruises in different stages of healing,” she says. Where the child is bruised is another consideration. “When you fall, it’s usually on the palms of your hands and knees,” Pulido says. “Injuries on the arms or stomach are suspicious.” For infants, any injury requires further inquiry.

fate is in your own hands. Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 23. Something that can’t be done without the support of others can take a turn for the better. However, it will be up to you to take advantage of this good fortune while things are going your way. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. You could make some serious bank, but only if you work on ways to make the right things happen. Don’t think you can leave it up to Lady Luck to do all the work. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. In order to be a good leader, a couple of things must be put in place. First, you need to set a good example for others to follow, and second, you should be willing to take risks. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. You’ll do quite well at whatever you attempt right now. Others aren’t likely to be envious of what you accomplish because you’ll involve them in the fruits of your gain. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. Having good friends means a lot to you, and you mean much to your pals. Your fierce sense of loyalty is a major reason why you have so many. Be sure to exercise that trait today. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. Important things you do are likely to produce ripples. As a result, everything looks good for you both financially and socially.

Travel the world with ‘No Reservations’


Hang locally For Bourdain, the best experiences are the ones spent with the locals — the people who don’t know who he is and what he does. “The people who don’t understand why the camera men are not eating and drinking. … Those are the best times,” he says.

Cutting American cuisine some slack Bourdain said Americans can be forgiven for their lapses when it comes to food. According to Bourdain, Americans lost touch with its roots in the country’s moment of wealth. “We’re a young country,” he says. “We don’t have a culture that’s un-conflicted about food as Italy, Spain or France. … I’m actually hopeful and optimistic about the way things are going in American dining culture.”

Season 8 of “No Reservations” kicks off in Mozambique.

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain kicks off the eighth season of his hit show Despite his signature snark, he says no location has disappointed him


nthony Bourdain might just have the best job in the world. In the eighth season of “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations” the chef takes his audience on a tour of 15 locations throughout six continents. Throughout the season, which airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. on the Travel Channel, Bourdain plays with a venomous king cobra snake in Penang; is gouged, cupped and drained of blood by a Finnish

massage therapist; rides a BMX bike on a beach in Mexico; and is kidnapped by The Black Keys. While Bourdain claims there were no high-security

moments so far this season, all of his adventures carry some element of danger. He recalls his trip to Beirut, Lebanon, in 2006: “When you’re filming with expensive cameras in a place where people are very hungry, and a few dollars makes a difference of life and death, it can understandably get very tense.” Bourdain says he has one guiding principle when choosing the lineup of countries to visit: Where can he go that interests him and excites him? “If traveling around the world and being a guest of people [is a job], if it’s not interesting and fun to me, I don’t see any reason it would be interesting or fun to anybody else.” His formula is simple: Travel, eat, experience — and then write. “The place reveals itself to us,” he explains. “You can’t write a script and [then] try to conform your experiences to preconceptions.” Season 8 kicks off in Mozambique, where Bourdain was pleasantly surprised: “The food was amazing. I came out feeling hopeful of the world.” MARY ANN GEORGANTOPOULOS



Knicks on a Midwest trek


Rematch with Bulls comes first, followed by seed battle with Bucks ‘Melo coming off star turn Sunday The Knicks were given the day off Monday to recuperate from Sunday’s emotional win over the Bulls. Following the thrilling and improbable overtime victory, the Knicks now embark on a difficult stretch in hopes of holding onto their current spot at No. 7 in the Eastern Conference playoffs standings. Their trek begins tonight in

Linsanity update Jeremy Lin spoke with the media prior to Sunday’s game and said what most everyone already knew. He doubts he’ll be ready for the first round of the playoffs. “It depends on how far and how long [rehab] goes. But obviously I want to get to 100 percent and then come back, hopefully see what I can do. By then it’ll be a different team identity, chemistry, so it gets tricky, too. ... I’m doing everything I can to get back as soon as possible.”

a rematch against the Bulls in Chicago. It doesn’t get easier the following night when the Knicks (29-27) travel to Milwaukee to face a Bucks (28-28) team that is nipping on the heels of playoff contention. “I’m trying to use these next few games as a playoff atmosphere. Especially [Chicago] because there’s a chance we could see them again in the first round,” said Woodson after Sunday’s win. “Right now I’m not even thinking ahead of that. We’re trying to take it one game at a time. When we get them again I’m sure they’re going to be fired up with having Rose back in uniform.” Carmelo Anthony, who finished with a game-high 43 points, played arguably his best game in a Knicks uniform in Sunday’s win. “There’s a lot of work to do, but you have to start from somewhere [because] the playoffs is our goal,” said Anthony. “As long as we continue to play the way we’ve been playing these last few games, with this effort, we’ll be fine. … It could be any one of us to step up un-

get a chance to practice much where we have 10 bodies running up and down the floor because we’re not healthy, so most of it is film sessions and walkthroughs on the floor. … We’re doing a lot of things on the fly because of the lack of time so it’ll be interesting to see [how the team responds].” TONY WILLIAMS

The Saints learned an obvious lesson yesterday — when you appeal to the same person who made the initial ruling, you’re going to lose. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld his own ruling in suspending Saints coach Sean Payton for the entire season due to the bounty system his defense employed. GM Mickey Loomis and assistant Joe Vitt had their penalties upheld as well.
