Our Fair City

Near my office there's a storefront with the name New York Visitors' Information Center. Rents in this neighborhood ain't cheap, so I can only assume it's some sort of pamphlet pusher funded by the tourist board. Next to the door, just below a logo strongly reminiscent of the Empire State Building, is the legend "The Best Cultural City in the World." To the left of the motto is a T.V. screen set into a blank wall. On the screen, twenty-four hours a day for several days now, for reasons I cannot begin to fathom, has been running a tape loop of naked sniveling mole rats scrittering about some sort of underground burrow.
