- CR: I like that Joe Lovano is on this.
- Me: Why?
- CR: Because he's an old guy with baggy pants.

Just witnessed an intense fight between two female strangers on the C train on my ride home tonight, which started because one accidentally hit the other, who was seated, with her bag, and didn’t apologize. It escalated into one brutally tackling the other out of the train on to the platform, and very bloody faces.
It’s interesting to see how everyone else on the train reacts to such situations—everyone sort of chuckled about how crazy they were when they were calling each other drug-addicted bitches, but when the insults got racist, the diverse occupants of the Brooklyn train universally gasped in horror.
Lots of people took video on their phones, so I’m interested to see if it turns up on YouTube tonight.
