I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts

The Mayor's News Service:
Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) -- A New York jury said the owner of the World Trade Center was legally responsible in the 1993 terrorist bombing that killed six people and injured 1,000. The civil trial jury today found the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey 68 percent liable for the attack, in which terrorists detonated explosives in a rented van in the 400-car garage under the former twin towers. The terrorists were 32 percent liable, the jury said. The trial consolidated more than 400 cases, including suits filed by people injured by the blast, the families of the dead and businesses. There will now be separate trials to determine damages for the various parties affected by the attack. "This was an extraordinary victory, and we're deeply grateful to the jurors,'' said David Dean, a lawyer for survivors and relatives of those who died. "This case was never about blaming the terrorists. It was always about the failure of the Port Authority to respond to their own reports and to the advice of others. The garage should have been closed.'' The liability finding of greater than 50 percent allows the plaintiffs to seek full payment of damages from the Port Authority, Dean said. A lawyer for the Port Authority said it will appeal.
I guess I can understand that. Man, when I first came to New York, I worked in both the WTC and the WFC on the midnight shifts. We used to wander around that part of town in the middle of the night in search of the 24-hour delis in the vicinity. In those days, downtown was totally dead after 6:00 p.m., as though the morning crowd was the mass of fans attending a daily NFL game. Stop me if I've told this story before, but when I was working at 60 Wall Street on the same schedule, I remember going out to smoke one night and seeing a U-Haul sitting out front for hours, not a conscious security guard in sight. And who could blame 'em? $4.50 an hour guys. My mind immediately went to Timothy McVeigh, of course. Turned out to be nothing. But nobody seemed to really worried about protecting the prime real estate from the rest of the world. Hopefully, I'll soon be be working in Chelsea or elsewhere on the Wesside. Someplace too decrepit to dirty-bomb. Well, never mind. I'm still hanging around the apt. waiting for the job offers to ripen while the old lady schleps around walking yuppie dogs. She's very good at it, presents quite the responsible, likable face to the yuppie dog consumer. I blog a little, send off resumes, check out the Daily Heights, watch the necon cabal getting eaten by its own mindless noise machine. It's the life of Reilly, except for this freaking arthritis and the odd random shooting and the festering corpses. Gotta wait another couple of weeks before the COBRA kicks in. Portability, my ass.

The U.S. Government is the nation's largest provider of financial assistance to women & minority owned small businesses. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is Congressionally mandated to assist the nation?s small businesses in meeting their financing needs. The SBA has small business loan programs and services to meet most small business needs. More information on U.S. Government Small Business Loans can be found at **www.SBASmallBusinessLoans.com**

How do Government SBA Small Business Loans work?

When a small business owner applies to a lending institution for a business loan, the lender reviews the application and decides if it merits a busiuness loan or if it requires an SBA guaranty. SBA backing on the business loan is then requested by the lender. In guaranteeing the business loan, the SBA assures the lender that, in the event the borrower does not repay the loan, the government will reimburse the lender for its loss. By providing this guaranty, the Small Business Administration helps tens of thousands of small business owners get financing they would not otherwise obtain.

How much money can I borrow?

Here are a few examples of what you can get from SBA small business loans programs:

7(a) Loan Guaranty Program

The 7(a) Loan Guaranty Program is the SBA's primary small business loan program. A maximum loan amount of $2 million has been established for 7(a) business loans.

Low Documentation Loan (SBALowDoc)

SBALowDoc is the SBA?s quick and easy program that provides a guaranty on small business loans of $150,000 or less. Once you have met your lender?s requirements for credit, the lender may request an SBALowDoc guaranty for up to 85 percent of the loan amount. You complete the front of a one-page SBA application, and the lender completes the back. At SBALowDoc centers, the agency processes completed applications within 36 hours.

SBAExpress

This method makes it easier and faster for lenders to provide small business loans of $250,000 or less. The SBA provides a rapid response through its PLP processing center in Sacramento, Calif.? within 36 hours of receiving the complete application package. Lenders use their own procedures to approve and service the loans.

CommunityExpress

The CommunityExpress pilot program is designed to spur economic development and job creation in untapped rural and inner city communities by providing loans and technical assistance. Loan proceeds may be used for most business purposes, including start-up, expansion, equipment purchases, working capital, inventory or real-estate acquisitions.
To be eligible for CommunityExpress, current or prospective small businesses must be located in low- and moderate-income urban and rural areas.

While CommunityExpress is similar to SBAExpress, here are some differences:

? CommunityExpress focuses on predesignated geographic areas that primarily low- and moderate-income urban and rural areas.

? The maximum loan amount under CommunityExpress is $250,000.

? CommunityExpress lenders, together with the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, provide hands-on technical training and support, both before and after loan closings, through community-based, nonprofit NCRC member organizations.

7(m) Microloan Program

The SBA?s Microloan Program provides very small loans up to $35,000 to small businesses and not-for-profit child-care centers through a network of locally based intermediary lenders. In addition to making the loans, the intermediaries provide management and technical assistance to microborrowers and potential microborrowers.

What can I use the loan proceeds for?

You can use an SBA small business loan to:

? expand or renovate facilities;
? purchase machinery, equipment, fixtures and leasehold improvements;
? finance receivables and augment working capital;
? refinance existing debt (with compelling reason);
? finance seasonal lines of credit;
? construct commercial buildings; and/or
? purchase land or buildings.

How do I repay the loan?

The length of time for repayment depends on the use of the loan proceeds and the ability of your small business to repay the loan.The term is usually 5 to 10 years for working capital, and up to 25 years for fixed assets such as the purchase or major renovation of real estate or purchase of equipment. There are no balloon payments, prepayment penalties, application fees or points permitted with these small business loans. Repayment plans may be tailored to each individual small business.

How do I get started?

You submit a business loan application to a lender for initial review. If the lender approves the business loan subject to an SBA guaranty, a copy of the loan application and a credit analysis are forwarded by the lender to the nearest SBA office. After SBA approval, the lending institution closes the business loan and disburses the funds; you make monthly loan payments directly to the lender. As with any loan, you are responsible for repaying the full amount of the loan. Visit **www.SBASmallBusinessLoans.com** for more info.
