Weekend work impacting service on 16 lines

By · Published in 2011

I’m a bit swamped at the old day job today, and I didn’t get back from last night’s crushing Yankee defeat until late. So I’m going to be light on content today. I’ll be back on Monday with a full slate of posts, and I have a few good ones — including a diatribe against Upper East Side NIMBYs, for a change — lined up. If you’re fasting for the holiday tonight and tomorrow, have an easy fast.
