Why is NYC the greatest city in the world? 
“Where to begin? See Shakespeare in the Park; see Jeter in the Bronx. Take in a matinee at 2pm; take out pizza at 4am. Found a new start-up; find an old mom-and-pop shop. Cheer the Knicks at MSG; cheer the Nets at Barclays. Catch Puccini at the Met; catch Da Vinci at the Met; catch Santana at the Mets. Eat Grimaldi’s after Brooklyn Bridge Park; eat Nathan’s after the Cyclone (definitely not before). Watch the US Open in the summer; watch the Super Bowl in the winter (next year!). Get a free ferry to Staten Island; get free advice in 200 different languages (I hear a lot of it). We are the most diverse and dynamic city on the planet—with record-safe streets and 440 bike-lane miles; 852 museums and galleries; 24,000 (smoke-free) restaurants; 29,000 parkland acres; a record 3.9 million jobs; 8.4 million residents; and 1 grateful mayor.”—Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

Awkward Moment of the Day
What we have here is a very unfortunate newspaper headline with an ill-placed image of a grapefruit slice that is supposed to resemble “G,” but it fails miserably. As seen on the cover page of Food section in a recent issue of the Minnesota daily newspaper Mankato Free Press, courtesy of the graphics department.

Good Parenting: Exhibit 1 (overheard at work today)

6-year old:Mommy, why is that man dressed like a lady?
Mother:That is a lady. She was just born with the wrong body.
6-year old:How did that happen?
Mother:Nobody really knows. But she's working to fix it, and that's what's important.
6-year old:Okay! *runs up to obviously self-conscious woman*
6-year old:Hey! Miss!
Lady:...yes?
6-year old:You look really pretty in your skirt!
Lady:Thank you!
*Kid skips back to her mom, and literally everyone in the vicinity smiles*
I'd just like to point out that it wasn't hard to explain this to a child at all...... Next excuse please?
