As the president abandons his hideout on Martha’s Vineyard to take control of Irene’s violent progress northward… [Gawker]
…NYC is showing how we panic. Which is slowly, combatively, neurotically and drunkenly. [Crain’s]
And when we say panic, we mean “shut down mass transit before it really starts to rain”-kinda panic… [NY Post]
“Pull all the taxis from the road”-kinda panic… [WSJ/Metropolis]
“No building of anything at all”-kinda panic… [The Real Deal]
“No museums”-kinda panic… [The Met]
Even “No Dave Matthews Band”-kinda panic. [Reuters]
Just stay in and “shtup” your landlord. [BrickUnderground]
