Hungry in Manhattan at 2 a.m.

Original post made by Jeb Bing, editor of the Pleasanton Weekly, on Nov 5, 2010

My wife Jan and I are just back from another quick trip to Manhattan to visit our son Chris, daughter-in-law Mary and our adorable 14-month-old grandson Jonathan. Chris met our midnight flight at JFK and we headed into the city, through heavy traffic, road construction, two accidents and an ambulance determined to make its way to the head of the line. Being in the midst of this frenzy of congestion, I again recognized there is nothing like the New York driver, whether on city streets or expressways, hand on horn, convinced that's the way to move traffic along. It doesn't take me long to remember I'm not in Pleasanton anymore.

Why does this sound familiar to me? Is it deja vu?

Posted Nov 5- why run it again now?

Isn't there something related to our city, Editor?
How about follow up on the many robberies, esp. the ones where suspects were caught.
What happened to them?
Are they in custody, or out again to become Repeat Offenders (but not until they are caught!)?
