    I just discovered that there’s a Monsey news page. I wonder what other goodies are hiding on YWN …

    Actually, there is a lot of news in Monsey. Monsey is a big city with a lot of family’s living there. Its no longer the small town it used to be.

    According to the Yated, Monsey doesn’t exist. Ergo, it doesn’t exist.

    2scents: If you live in Monsey, it’s dull as math class. I mean, oh my gosh! Measles in a grocery store I never shop at! A fixed election- never had one of THOSE before!

    Yserbius: The ironic part is that the editor in chief lives in Monsey. If even he can’t come up with anything to write about…

    Your right, we dont have much of the ‘hot’ news, but Monsey is no quiet town, there is a lot going on.

    Y. Elchonon/Avi Yishai lives in Monsey which is part of the reason why he makes a huge effort to keep all mention of Monsey out of the Yated.

    Yserbius: So does CB Weinfeld- the whole thing, to the best of my knowledge, is run out of Monsey and possibly Lakewood.

    I have a theory about new- let’s say one newsmaking thing will happen on a given day per 1000 families (hypothetical numbers here), so that if Monsey has 10,000 families, 10 newsworthy things happened. The thing is, since there are only ten, you have to take what you can get- one of them may be genuinely interesting and different, but odds are it won’t be.

    OTOH, in Brooklyn or somewhere bigger, if there are hypothetically 50,000 families, then they have 50 newsworthy occurrences a day, and can then afford to pick and choose only the most interesting stuff.

    Or maybe Monsey people are just jaded and don’t think of corruption and fixed elections as news anymore…
