We used to be "The Empire State" but now we're run by cowards and wussies. At strong breeze scares the shit out of them. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/29/us/east-coast-braces-for-severe-storm-surge.html [h=1]M.T.A. Plans to Suspend Transit Service[/h] As the National Hurricane Center warned that Hurricane Sandy could bring â€œlife-threateningâ€ flooding along the Atlantic coast, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York said that subway, bus, and railroad service in New York would be suspended beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday. Until last August the subway ran 24x7 for more than 100 years. Now a stiff breeze scares them into submission? No wonder all the sports teams are leaving this place.
