It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood
The hostage crisis was resolved yesterday, with no injuries or other major problems. Whew. That's quite enough excitement for one week, thank you very much. Maybe now we can go back to the plain old weirdness of downtown living: stepping over guys who have passed out from drinking too much Listerine, avoiding suspicious puddles, etc.
