    here's one from me

    I used to live like Robinson Crusoe--shipwrecked among eight million people. Then one day I saw a footprint in the sand, and there you were. -B. Wilder

      You describe the city far better than I could.  I was there so briefly. I can't still smell it and feel it though.

      One thought, I think they'd be talking about folks who chose to stay, but they'd be talking about them the way they talk about the people who live in the Outer Banks-- weathered (white) people who've seen Mother Nature charge and wait out her fury with pride.

    •  thanks, KO (none)
      I enjoyed that.
