Trees down on a wet Canal Street on Tuesday morning.
Host John Hockenberry on the sounds of New York, the morning after the storm.
Dear New York City,
Sorry you had to go through all this. But it's a welcomed relief for us NewYorkers-in-Miami types. We go through so many "hysterical anchorperson" incidents annually and it's about time you experience what they put us through. Of course, "Hurricane and The City" is such a big story that WE didn't really escape the hysteria completely. We only know this because we still have electricity. On the bright side, ya'll have a few days of no Honey Boo Boo to clear your minds. This will be useful when you go vote for President Obama. (Romney won't write you any FEMA checks.)
Yours truly (truly),Angel
PS: on the brighter side, this letter will no doubt anger the gods and the next hurricane is on us... literally.
