    Wow, how wonderful! And a beautifully done article. Best of luck to both of them.

    Thanks to JVB for continuing to fight for your constituents no matter their backgrounds, and for demonstrating that Queens can be a welcoming place for everybody.

    If Mr. Hendrick had wanted to make the whole thing more Sunnyside-esque he would have proposed in a Dollar Store.

    But seriously, congrats to the happy couple.

    Congratulation to the happy couple. Congrats to the Sunnyside Post for the scoop on this great news item.

    I do not think that Molly Blooms can hold 200 people!

    You might need the crab house down by the water in lic for this wedding.

    I wish them all the luck in the world.

    I also wish VB would get serious about the surfeit of drug stores, pawn shops and 99 cent stores bringing down the tone of the neighborhood.

    If you drive by Sunnyside you would assume that mostly poor geriatrics who are regularly forced to hock the family heirlooms.

    And as for Sunnyside's entrepreneurs. What's the matter with you guys? Why would you pursue another Duane Rede or Dunkin' Donuts or 99 Cent store franchise when the neighborhoods already lousy with them?

    I'm genuinely asking because I'm puzzled by the group think, herd mentality that seems to be operating here.

    On the Boulevard only Salt and Fat and Molly Blooms have even dared to break the mold and in doing so they have become the two bright spots on a forgettable canvas.

    In the Opra Channel's made-for-TV-movie, these two can be played by Peter Scolari and Jimmy Sommerville (from Bronski Beat).
    I take great pride in this casting coup.
