I gots beef with iPod. As this is my first contribution to the tighten up report, I am sad to note it is a hypocritical one, because I myself nano around the city lost in my personal Ratatat dance party. Nevertheless! I can change, as can we all.
Ipods put the greatest city in los Estados Unidos in a somnambulistic haze. Ipods allow us all to tune out the grime, the homeless, the screeching of children and subway cars. They individualize loud, release us from acknowledgment, and silence community. NYC is a Loud City! Bring back the chrome! Bring back the blaster!
Also, Albert Gonzales, Paul Wolfowitz. You've got to be kidding me. Tighten up and step down.
