Kerik Update and More
It's a Blue Christmas for Bernie Kerik. In the wake of scandal and accusations, he has left the consulting firm he founded with Rudy Giuliani.
Kerik insisted he simply did not want to be a distraction for the firm.
Giuliani insisted he had not urged the resignation of his longtime friend.
The Easter Bunny insisted he was real. Santa Claus insisted he knows if you've been bad or good. Tara Reid insisted she could count and read.
Elsewhere in Big Apple news, the New York Post reports that the late Yasser Arafat was a secret investor in a popular, upscale New York City bowling alley that has hosted Jewish Defense League events and assorted bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs.
The tabloid reports:
"Bowlers at the lanes, where pins signed by Giuliani -- a vociferous Arafat critic who once had him removed from Lincoln Center -- Carson Daly and others grace the walls, said the Arafat connection left a taste in their mouth as sour as an old bowling shoe."
Damn terrorists. Bowling alleys?!? Is nothing sacred?
