Just wanted to weigh in on the NYC protests...

Let's hear it for the NYPD!!!
They are doing a bang-up job.

Like most New Yorkers, I've been staying away from the madness but I did have one interesting encounter last night on the streets of Manhattan.

I ran across a woman who seems to be homeless. She also seemed quite respectable so I asked if she could use some cash. The conversation took an unexpected twist.

First, she asked: Are you a New Yorker? I assured her that I was. Not quite convinced, she asked if I was one of those protesters. I assured her that I wasn't. She then asked where I lived. When I told her, she finally relaxed.

She then remarked:
No way will I take a dime from those protesters. They're awful people. They should all to go back to where they came from. We don't need people like that in New York.

She has a point!
