You forgot the apostrophes on "things" and "months," subby. Also, remember that "Another" should actually be written as two separate words: A nother. If it was only one word, people wouldn't be able to correctly use the expression, "a whole nother."

Judging by the number of people I saw running stop signs yesterday, DC is about to become the motor vehicle murder capital of the US. That was ridiculous.

There had been no pedestrian fatally struck by a vehicle in the city since the coronavirus outbreak, making it the longest period without a pedestrian death the city began tracking those deaths in 1983.

Run-on sentence about people getting run over.

This is the kind of good news that will unite us all.

Did the pedestrian announce that they were walking there?  Because, otherwise, the driver is not culpable.

The Mafia goes back to work.

you mean vehicular covid?

Ugh. That death is so pedestrian.

Since it happened during de Blasio's administration, it means it's his fault, right?

Feeling run down and it's not Corona?

As a non-prescriptivist, I can only begin to describe the joy that I have in that phrase's entry into the lexicon.

Looks like they shot him in the groin, too. Talk about adding insult to injury.

To solve this problem we need to ban pedestrians and cars from NYC.  That way, if a person decides to walk or drive illegally, there is less of a chance they encounter a person doing the other activity.  We need to lock everybody in their homes, for their own safety.  If it saves one life, it is worth it.

"Listen, pal. Green means 'go'. Straight ahead, right or left, backwards. You gotta get the fuggoutta da way when that light changes, because I literally cannot stop."

Posthumous elimination?

I think that's what a vocal minority in San Francisco is angling for. "I don't drive, so no one should drive! (Except for my uber guy and grubhub guy and laundry guy and amazon guy) Retail is dead! No more cars!"


It's like watching a puppy not understand a mirror.

I can almost guarantee that every farker over 30 in the NYC area who read "1010 WINS" immediately thought "you give us 22 minutes...".

Was the motorist charged?  If not, then it's not really news.

It wasn't a bicyclist.

De Blasio has blood on his hands for this.

Remind me not to be walking in NYC in July
