Why I love NYC

'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    That's sweet. They serenaded him.

    "We have to find someone who can not only fly this plane, but who didn't have fish for dinner."

    Crooow:This music would work better with women in bikinis shaking all over the place. I guess that's true of any music really.

    And in his favorite language.

    Too many people. Too many concrete trees.

    They don't want you there anyway.

    I am imagine it more like that Meatloaf song where he does the duet about doing anything for love except for that with Fishingcomic on the motorcycle, but I am have difficult time thinking what the that is which you two are claim to not do.

    Need to stop running and get off the wheel... No finish line in the rat race.

    I’ve had the meatloaf song in my head ever since I brought it up, and I keep picturing fishingcomic on the motorcycle like I seem to remember in the music video but maybe that was different meatloaf music video.

    I’ll bet Sheb really turned up the volume to that song when it came on the radio — it seems like something he might have listened to.

    There are so many amendments. . . in the Constitution. . .
