Manhattan Fifth Avenue Street Report-nervous

Had an annual checkup at my doctor's a block or so away from Trump Tower in Manhattan. I emerged from the subway and my first reaction was "Holy Cow, they really have boarded up most of the stores!" (we're looking at you, Cartier) It was surprising because in Queens, ain't nobody boarding up stores. In fact, hereabouts it's what passes for normal nowadays (99% masks).
However, in famously bustling midtown Manhattan there were relatively few people on the street, light traffic and plenty of plywood.

So yes, those pictures are true. Whether or not the fortifications are merited is dubious. Please keep in mind this wisdom...Midtown Manhattan is NOT New York City. Apropos of this, I was talking to a cameraman from Spectrum TV (owned by the despised Charter Communications). He was walking up Fifth Avenue, stopping and shooting footage of the boarded up stores one by one. That's so they can drop it into their newscasts to make you think the NYCPocalyse is neigh. It ain't.

My doctor says I should get out and walk more every day. That's my report. (no pictures, you can see them on the panic-next-time news. They have better cameras, anyway.)

Everyone at the langone Medical Center wanted Dump Trump and Traitor Trump buttons. They wiped out my supply of 23 in a flash.

Steve G., you do good work! Maybe you can make some Trump 20/20 buttons for the indictments and trials. Maybe a ‘Make President Trump a Lifer.’



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

If it didn't bring up unfortunate allusions to lynching, I'd prefer "Hang The Bastard".
