Since things are a little slow right now, here's a little humor from the NYT:
A few years ago, I took my 95-year-old father to see the rejuvenation of Coney Island. While he enjoyed the scene from a bench, I walked to get us lunch: hot dogs and drinks, naturally.
When I returned, he told me how, as a youngster, he would walk from Sea Gate to the movie palace on Surf Avenue, but that he never had enough money to get a drink across the road at Nathan’s.
He took a sip of his orange drink.
“All my life I’ve been craving this,” he said. “And it’s terrible.”
