I don't remember Copeland ever getting flagrant. Actually, quite the opposite. He would stay bizarrely polite and mild-mannered. It just seemed like regardless what you said to him would go in one ear and out the other. It was very autistic.
Uptown is above 59th of course, downtown is below 14th street. I just think it is odd to say downtown when you really mean the financial district. Downtown has a completely different connotation to me.
