Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Leaving New York: An Experiment [by Joy Katz]:

Comments

Eddie Izzard has asserted that there are only FIVE taxis in San Francisco.

A joy to read your tales of two cities. Anywhere in the states "New York" provokes a reaction just as "America" does in Europe. Meanwhile, word has it that St Louis's beer empire Anheuser-Busch is going to be bought by a European group. Are folks freaking out?

of course everyone knows that st louis is the birthplace of tom eliot but, of equal note, it's also the birthplace of yogi berra.
-- mitch s.

People here are very upset over InBev's hostile takeover of Anheuser-Bush. The perception is that a poorly managed company -- notwithstanding that it's based abroad -- is coming in to wreck (InBev CEO Carlos Brito and his M&A team have been rightly called "machete-wielding investment bankers") a profitable local company. People are talking about the effect of this merger on the city's cultural life. One of the great aspects of St Louis is that its excellent museums and zoo are Free to All. And largely funded by A-B. We visit the zoo almost daily. What will happen if that changes?...And then of course the loss of jobs, and the stab wound to a city that has been recovering from longstanding economic stress.

loved reading this. having grown up in new york, the provincialism of the great city took me a long time to grow out of. living elsewhere did it for me. st. louis? sounds great. . .

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
