My safe haven, 100 miles from Times Square, just shook a little. I figured it needed some lateral bracing, the deck only, but the kid just called from Jersey City and asked if we felt it.

I have to say " and so it begins".

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!
