In continuing coverage of the freaky crap happening in the subway lately, last night around 2am, a guy got slashed on the L train.
Apparently, some jackass guy with a beard started to taunt another rider.  “You lookin’ at me?”  Then the two got into it.   The poor 19 year old guy was just trying to [...]

Being out and about this weekend, I noticed that nightime smell of winter. That cold, crisp smell before a snow storm. Winter is on the way.
As I look around the train, the ladies are ready with the winter fashions. I know, you’ve been waiting for weeks to trot out all of your new sweaters.
