The Killing of New York City

Welcome back Gerard. Go over to Roger S. and give him a New Yorker's (or a long-time New Yorker's) pat on the back. He seems down in the dumps since his arrival there. Cheers!

Thanks Doug. I dropped by Roger's and gave him a couple of walking tours of New York to restore his sanity.

We'll see.

Spending your days in the bowels of Madison Square Garden isn't the best way to see New York.

That's enough to give anyone the cold chills...Not to mention:

A few months ago, Peggy Noonan wrote in the Wall Street Journal that she gets the jits when she thinks how easy it would be to slip something into Newark in one of those huge shipping containers, especially since the port has a lot of mob influence, and thus, a lot of corruption.

A small suitcase nuke in the right spot would destroy most of Manhattan, and kill hundreds of thousands.

And so on...

I've visited New York, and somehow I feel "connected" to the place...I hate to think that NYC's probably one of the first targets on the terrorist hit list...

And that's the main reason I'm supporting Mr. Bush - he seems to understand what the stakes are.
