Big Bad City

Today, Robbi and I are headed to New York City to meet with some people about some things. More on that to come. If we do not return by this time tomorrow, please send rescuers. We'll be the small town folk cowering miserably in the middle of Times Square.


If someone can give me a rational explanation for why so many people choose to live in one small place, I would be extremely grateful. It simply does not compute.

I'm definitely a small town guy but new York City does have Jim Hanley's Universe and St. Mark's Comics which are pretty sweet comic book stores. I saw Ric Ocasek in St. Mark's once. And there's that restaurant that serves all kinds of different food all with peanut butter. So those things I guess would make it bearable to have so many people around.

I work near there, and I think Times Square is awful. But other parts of the city can be awesome.

There are so many people because there's so much to do there (because there are so many people there).
I've lived there alot and I do love it, but I prefer Chestertown actually. Of course, NY really is a city of small villages.

Which came first, the people or the things to do?
