Danger Lurks in Park Slope

My wife was a little worried about my daughter.

"She's got to walk eight blocks alone, in the dark! That's dangerous."

"Where is she?" I asked.

"Park Slope."

"That is dangerous: at any moment, she could be co-opted into an anti-fracking demonstration, or enlisted in an underground raw-milk co-op!"

    2. I've seen it around. Criticism of McDonald's workers striking for higher wages comes to mind. Over on a political forum that I belong to some users made retorts about the free market, poking fun at an OP's thread on the subject. I occasionally pick on uneasy anti-union rhetoric from free marketeers even though unions are part of the free market process.

    3. Oh yes, Sampson, absolutely: you are correct, it is around. I just wondered if you thought that's what I was doing. But it is clear you did not.

  2. I naturally agree with anyone worried about a young lady walking by herself at night. But, Park Slope is better than Crown Heights.
