Vegan Muffins and a Telethon?
Sandy left a mess behind her. The repair and clean up crews have done an amazing amount of work in very little time, but there is still so much left to do. I have friends both in and out of the city still without power. Yet New York City soldiers on. All of the workaholics seem to congregate here. Hence storm damage is no obstacle. Instead, I'll walk two hours to where I need to be. The city is picking itself up by it's bootstraps in the weirdest way possible:by pretending nothing is wrong. I'm used to Hurricanes and their destruction. Tropical Storm Allison taught me long ago that the cat of a hurricane can often mean nothing. Houstonians asses the situation, head back in, and clean it up as best they can. The city kids respond differently. Theywalk miles to go the gym, a coffee shop, or work. Like the whole thing never happened and this is just another subway delay, not a complete shutdown south of 34th St. New York City and it's people don't know how to stand back and wait. They have to take action. Generally vegan muffin and soy fair trade latter action. As I'm often reminded by the wealthy here, money doesn't buy common sense.
