As mentioned in the past, my habit is to turn up early for appointments and engagements. Accordingly, before one of the many Working Harbor Committee excursions leaving from South Street Seaport this summer, your humble narrator found himself wandering around lower Manhattan with an hour or so to kill.

This young couple came rolling past me, texting and skate boarding while holding hands. They were young, at most sixteen. Seemed to be locals, likely from one of the many apartment complexes which neighbor Fulton Street.

There was just something really sweet about these kids, who seemed to be lost in their own little world. The sight of them made even one as calcified as myself smile.

  1. Tits vs. Ass.

    You see Mitch, in the days of yore, it was risque to show breast cleavage and to pronounce the female bosom. (Exempla gratia: Jayne Mansfield and Jayne Russell) Here in your photo we have a young lady displaying butt cleavage.

    My question to you and the readers is why has this occurred? Why the pronouncement in the Zeitgeist of the female inferior vs. the superior?
