I'll post the fun update with the tourist pictures later, but for those of you who have been asking...
...yes, my wife and my son were nearby when that idiot blew up the recruiting center in NY!
You may remember my plea last week for advice on cool things they could do while visiting New York yesterday. Well, one of the things they chose to do was eat at the Hard Rock Cafe... just 6 hours before the bomb went off! Here is a picture that shows how close they really were.
Of course no one was injured by this moronic act of ignorance, but it sure added a sobering dose of reality to a 15 year old kid's first visit to the big city. Especially since the last thing they did before eating there was visit Ground Zero.
Don't get me wrong, they both had an unbelievably good time on their short visit and this little "event" didn't spoil that at all.
New York is still way too cool for that.
