have just returned (Monday morning) from a bracing stroll in Morningside Park, defying Sandy to do her worst. No rain,
though the wind is beginning to pick up. That is often a problem here
in Manhattan, where the canyon-like streets function like wind tunnels.
I returned via the Avenue, where most businesses are open. I feel
sorry for the employees who had somehow to get to work after public
transportation was unnecessarily shut down. At two sidewalk cafes
waiters were putting out tables for the lunchtime crowd! That is
something you won't see on television. The MSM and the politicians are
liars all. They stir up the sense of panic through very selective use
of evidence--floods and all. Don't believe their hype.
