Where Were You When the Lights Came Back On

About twenty-nine hours after the power went out in New York City, it’s finally returned to the East Village — we were one of the last neighborhoods to be revived, so to speak, and one of the remaining fifteen percent of New Yorkers still in the dark for hours after Mayor Bloomberg and that ridiculous, charlatan of a Governor George Pataki first started congratulating themselves for seeing the city and state through the most widespread blackout in American History. It was a grueling day and a half, which I’ll write more about later, but I’m just happy that the 21st Century has been restored. Hurray!

  1. I’m curious as to how that felt and look forward to your thoughts on it. While Chicago had one blackout back in 1999 and I’ve endured many a blackout in Kuala Lumpur by candlelight, I’ve never been in a position where I’ve relied on technology quite a bit to supplement my life, and work and such.

Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
