Obama and various other illegal immigrants (he's Kenyan, right?) were hanging out in my hood this week. Yesterday I walked through Central Park and someone important must have been at the Met because from 85th street until 59th street (the end of the park) traffic was at a standstill. I don't mean that in the sense "Ug, traffic was so heavy it was like a parking lot", I mean traffic was at a STANDSTILL; drivers had turned off their engines and were lounging on the side of the road. For those of you who don't know, you can drive through Central Park, but it's not like there are any side streets you can sneak off on. I really felt sad for the morons in cabs. The meters were ticking and I'm sure they were thinking "we're going to move any second." In the twenty or so minutes it took me to walk the distance, absolutely nothing moved. Touche China.
