Dueling Tour Buses in Times Square.

Just goes to show you the International nature of modern news, I first saw the story on BBC.  Mom, Elaine and I were entering the subway at Rockefeller Center, a block away from two tour buses sideswiping each other.  Dueling tour buses, very nice, like the movie Deliverance.  They tried to take out Father Duffy’s statue.  Oh, what he would have done if he was alive.  The priest for the Fighting 69th?  

Or Monty Python’s Architects sketch.   Do you propose we slaughter our tourists?  They bring major income to the city.

All one driver wanted to know about the other was, “Did I put him out of business?”

The tourists took selfies of themselves getting bandaged as New York first responders cleaned up the wreckage, which was making Seventh Avenue worse than usual.

Harking back to the Seventies and the motto, “Fun City.”

 

 

 

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
