Exactly five years ago, NYC blacked out. Like someone delivered a sucker punch and took all the light and wind away.
We were at work that day, and Mehernaaz was in NYC, galavanting around Times Square. Cellphone towers were overloaded so I couldnt get in touch with her. She had the presence of mind to walk to my office, 42 blocks south. From there we then headed home, joined by the thousands walking across Manhattan bridge.
Times flies, and that also makes me realize that Mehernaaz has not been to NYC in 5 years……..damn!!
More critically, Bush is still in power and energy policy is not.
