Well, its finally safe to walk the streets in New York City. Just don't bring your ipods. Let's not pay attention to things that matter. Rape, murder, theft, arson, poverty, city mantience, organized crime, or terrorism. Those are topics for cities where that actually occurs. Just another example that the government should have as little power over people as possible, or else they start ignoring what matters and start wasting money legislating stupis sh*t. As for people who die crossing the streets because they don't pay attention? Proof of natural selection. Ipods to blame for people being hit? Uh uh. Being a dumbass is to blame.
