From the Times:

I found this in the Times a while ago and forgot to post it: Messages Of Hate Met by Scorn And Shrugs.

On This Spot, Something Happened. (Dad, you will especially love this article.)

A Times Square for Our Time, Pedestrian in More Ways Than One.  A well-written article about the pedestrian mall of Times Square:

“But right now, the pedestrian mall, it must be said, looks a little unworthy of New York. The city may be reeling from recession, but the huge orange plastic containers and tatty hardware-store chairs give the sense that it’s already letting itself go, like some Lehman Brothers wife who has not just forsaken her golden highlights, but given up on grooming altogether. Surely someone at Ikea could have helped the city ease this transition — maybe some witty, oversize umbrellas (sure, weighed down), or at least chairs that do not look like they are lonely for the company of pink flamingos.”
