All Saints’ Day Cynical Observations

1. Pundits complain about the other side’s shrillness in direct proportion to their own degree of shrillness.

2. The only redeeming feature of Midtown Manhattan is that it’s not hilly.

3. Number of women in Halloween costumes I saw today: 31, of whom 12 were suggestive. Number of men: 1, of which 0 were suggestive. We report, you decide.

4. The wind’s speed is inversely proportional to temperature (recall that the wind chill effect grows stronger as temperature decreases). Also, there’s no escaping the Manhattan wind tunnels.

    Oh, Morningside is a nice neighborhood. I’m just obligated to hate Midtown and the Upper East Side, since I don’t live in them.
