What? Even though post 9/11 we're all New Yorkers, badmouthing N.Y. is de rigour - aka the Pace picante sauce ad. At least that's what I learned at my Father's knee - who was married in City Hall(1939) and was a Brooklyn Dodger fan to the very end(in spite of the move). My old best pal Bonnie Lou in Denver(by way of Plattsburg and New York City) said you should never be nice to a New Yorker unless you don't like them.
So even if you do - never admit it.
heh heh heh - they said similar things about New Orleans - they even had an anti bad mouth campaign a number of years ago before Katrina. Love those old stock market cliches - even if I'm not always sure what they mean.
