I know it's bad in New York, too, but down here (half a mile outside of Our Federal City) it seems to me that we've gone to extremes.
Last night I actually had a dream about Ned and Bill McCrum's drug store with its great soda fountain. Used to be on Castleton Avenue, at least through the forties. I could walk two blocks north and three blocks west to reach that soda fountain, but in the cold (ha!) light of day I'm not sure I'd want to walk that far in this weather.
