Falling ice from the World Trade Center forced authorities to shut down a stretch of the West St. and the Battery Park Underpass Wednesday, snarling rush hour traffic for blocks on both sides of the complex.
COULD YOU MARRY A MAN WHO DIDN’T LIKE NOAM CHOMSKY? I THINK WE KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT, AND THE ANSWER IS: DEFINITELY NOT. Life in a marriage where nobody wants to talk about Noam Chomsky is basically like life in a barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland where your only friends are radioactive feral dogs who also do not want to talk about Noam Chomsky. No, worse.
Seriously, there is no fate worse than spinsterhood, which is what you are heading toward rapidly. I take it back: The one fate worse than spinsterhood is being wed to a man who gets a blank look when you mention Noam Chomsky. That’s — that’s — I shudder even to think of it. Imagine: You give birth to your first child, and you smile into the eyes of its father, and you want to say something about semiotics, and you CAN’T."
