New Year's Towing

    Nothing is as happy for me as seeing the lovely traditions of the season which the city cherishes and shares with her inhabitants, guests and visitors. From the lovely religion-neutral stars and blue circles hanging about the intersections to the, well, I can't think of much else. Most every other thing is paid for with private money. Those stars and circles may be too, for all I know. But what better way to ring in the new year with a right-at-3:45 towing of the first car off of Water Street. An act Scrooge would find heartwarming, the second tow truck was already lined up blocking traffic and waiting for a victim. Sure enough not 3 seconds into the towing of the first, with a tow truck sitting there no less, another car pulls up. Of course, the guy driving the tow truck did the decent thing and said nothing. A meter reader was along in just two shakes of a rat's ass and bingo. . . you can see the meter reader running anxiously to get to the car before the owner returned in the second picture.
