Sick Transit Gloria

Hey kids, been a while and sorry for the extremely poor state of posting recently - a combination of poor privacy, poor time management, and poor connectivity. Yesterday, for instance, was spent hunting around the region surrounding the Gare St Lazare in Paris looking for a French laptop cable. Scunthorpe was, well, dial-up, and we had channeled much of our energy into digitising some rare 60s blues albums.

We'll be back in the new country in a couple of days, at which point we'll be a mite less frazzled, and a mite more engaged. Again, our apologies. In the mean time, we would like to wish the dwindling NY readership the best of luck in dealing with the transit strike, should it transpire. Current omens are not good.

Still, if there may be something that can knock some sense into the combined heads of Mayor Mike and the Transit Workers' Union. We're not even going to pick sides. But can we please recognise that in the event of a strike, many workers from Brooklyn may be walking to and from work on the Brooklyn Bridge.

And we all know what that means. Top bumptious f*** and America's most redundant politician Marty Markowitz will be at the other end to get his name in the paperswelcome you back. Don't say you weren't warned. If there was one thing that the great blackout of 2003 taught us, it was to take the Manhattan Bridge in these instances.

Good luck, kids. We'll be drinking in Islo.

Marty woz here
