The Indefinite Article.

Tuesday, December 20, 2005


Well, I guess my Christmas shopping dollars won't be going into the NYC economy. Reading about all these people walking to work over the bridges reminds me a lot of the blackout. Except that it wasn't cold. And it was dark.

Amusingly, the transit workers have talked themselves into believing that New Yorkers will support them. I doubt this for two reasons. One, the pension package they are fighting for is far more generous than they would get anywhere in the private sector. So few people will be able to relate to it. And, two, whenever there is a fare hike people spit on and throw things at the MTA workers. If they do that over a fare hike, why would they have an opposite reaction over a strike?


  • Aren't you in PA? Isn't shopping in NYC from there like driving to Austin from Houston to go shoppng?

  • I am in NJ. But the drive from PA to NYC is much shorter than from Houston to Austin. Or the train ride. The train from Philly to NYC is 1 hr 15 mins.

  • Hi Ethan -- we live so close to each other and I don't know who you are are how you know our fellow bloggers. Would love to hear the story of Ethan if you have time!

  • Hey Amber, I actually live in Houston, although probably not for much longer. I grew up in NJ and most of my family lives in the NJ/PA area. I work with Adolph and that is how I met everyone.

    I used to go up to the Poconos when I was a kid to go snowboarding.

    Did you see the article yesterday in the NYT about New Yorkers moving to PA? It was mostly about people moving to places like Easton and Bethlehem and still commuting to the city.
