Letters From the Editor


Yesterday on my way to work I saw a man, possibly in his seventies, helping someone dressed in a full chicken costume out of the back of a van.

At every stop the girl raised her fists above her head and shouted, ‘Yaaaaayyyyy!’ Each time her mother would say, ‘Not yet.’ When we reached the Union Square stop the girl said nothing. Her mother said, ‘This is where we get off.’ The daughter raised her fists above her head and yelled, ‘Yaaaaayyyyy!’
