It seems I am now settled here in NYC. As of July 9, my nightmarish experience with DHS and the shelter system ended when I was set up in a rooming house in the New Brighton section of Staten Island. It is about an hour (by train and boat) to my messenger job in Midtown, and parking for my car is free, unrestricted, and (by NYC standards) plentiful.
I don't know how long it will be before I get home internet access, though. I would like to comment about such political things as Bruno's retirement, the lack of support for Obama amongst the Hildabeest's supporters, and the death this morning of former Fox News host and White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, but there is only a limited amount of time at these NYPL computers, and right now I'm too busy updating and changing my address to reflect the move out of Manhattan.
