Everyone is outside today, but when you are home, do find time to enjoy this collection of photographs of the old Chippewa Street, the Chippewa Street when it was the red-light district.
You see the old House of Quinn, the Fisherman's Wharf, all these seedy old places, the hotels of ill repute, and all the signs saying "Girls Girls Girls."
Buzz is trying to figure out whom to credit for this Red Light Special but it is posted on YouTube under a fake name. When we figure it out we will give credit where credit is due.
And now, without further ado ...

Buzz's new friend "Doctor John" Bisci, voice of Club 747, passes along this picture of himself and his fellow disco DJs gathered for a charity reunion, the Hustle for a Cure Charity Event at First Niagara Center on Friday night.
Priceless! If this is not a clip-and-save picture Buzz does not know what is.
This explains Doctor John's stealth flight into Buffalo.
Thing like this do not happen by accident!

Our Facebook friend Dave snapped this picture of Air Force 1 heading into the Buffalo airport. It is pretty thrilling, you know?
Maybe not to Dave.
He wrote: "I bet they go for the Super Kiss at Delta Sonic."
As promised in today's Buzz column, here is the rare picture of deejay Anita West looking stressed, included in Phil Pantano's photo exhibit.
The way we are used to seeing Anita:
As Buzz promises in the paper today, Phil Pantano's exhibit is a rare chance to catch Anita West looking downcast. Clearly Phil Pantano is a man of genius.
Catch the exhibit while you can!
Our cute baby polar bear is in the national spotlight!
Pursuant to Buzz's admiration of the bear, the site BuzzFeed posted an entire album of him! Her, we mean. The bear is a girl.
BuzzFeed's headline is: "The Buffalo Zoo Baby Polar Bear Is Unreasonably Cute."
Our favorite picture is up above. Look at that bear! Unbelievable!
Here are others:
And an armful of happy bear! This one was taken by Derek Gee at The Buffalo News.
As was this one.
Who can bear this bear? It will be terrible one of these days when she grows up and is all mean and growly and threatening to claw us. How can that happen? When right now she loves people so much?
Buzz echoes BuzzFeed.
Why do they have to grow?

There is nothing like January as seen through the window of a Metro Bus.
The snow. The smudges. The Rite Aid sign reading "Christmas 75 Percent Off."
It is a revelation to ride the bus.
You get a new view of the world!

Like rivulets of spilled champagne, the photos from New Year's Eve are trickling in.
How bad a year can 2013 turn out to be when it begins with (left to right): developer Mark Croce, crooner Nick Battistella and Mayor Byron Brown singing, together, "Auld Lang Syne"?
This picture, posted on Nick's Facebook fan page, was taken at the Statler Ice Ball.
Quoth Nick: "Mayor Brown was rockin' the house!"

... is the opportunity for great photography!
I snapped this masterpiece with my cell phone.
And this one ...
If you took that in Norway you would show it to all your friends!
Buzz's unsolicited advice: Don't gripe about the early sunset.

The sunsets have been so stunning this week! Here is a photograph I took yesterday.
Isn't that exotic? It look as if I was photographing a Texas oilfield or something. I was just out by the Boulevard Mall.
What did we do before cell phone cameras?
They put great art within everyone's reach!

... Yes, Kmart!
You do not find Kmarts around as much as you used to and Buzz is lucky to live near one, at Hertel and Delaware. We stop in when we want to brighten our day!
The kitchen department is decent and the underwear department is without parallel.
The idea is to blur your pictures just a bit to get that French Impressionistic effect.
Move over, Monet!
