    was the Pope scheduled to be here during the same time as the UN for a particular purpose? Or was it just some bozo thinking "yeah, no worries with the Pope coming into town then, it'll work out great. Can't think of anything else going on. Maybe the start of basketball season? Eh, no worries."

    I think I picked a good week to be in Ireland and Spain.

    If it makes you New Yorkers feel any better, Philly is planning to tow cars parked on major streets in most of Center City in anticipation of the Pope's visit. Starting on some sort of rolling basis based on randomly demarcated zone. They're offering parking permits to residents in something like six or seven lots, which can probably accommodate 10% of the displaced cars. Oh, and cars that leave Center City can't return for several days.

    It's a fucking shitshow.

    Nobody freezes up a city like the pontif. Nobody's even close. Over the years I've been in five different cities during a papal visit and all reported the worst case of gridlock (event related) in their respective histories.

    If Frankie were truly a "man of the people" he'd tell NYC/PHL/DC to shove their security theater.

    I suppose it's worth noting that the weather has been really perfect over the past few days.

    They installed a new unit, 5 year warranty on the compressor. Haven't had any issues, that was three years ago.

    right, your optimal is overcast and cold.

    A high of 68 degrees is not cold. With a brisk trot you will stay nice and toasty.
