In traveling around the city yesterday it struck me that perhaps some aliens have visited earth and took away at least 25% of the city's population. I never remember NYC being so quiet. It's like it was right after 9-11. Very scary to note all the empty restaurants and for rent storefronts. Every day brings new tales of acquaintances that have lost their job, or worse. It's a disaster, fueled by an eager media ready to criticize Obama on a moments notice. It's sick out there and getting sicker. Must be a low for the market.
