Happy New Year's Eve to all.
I raise a toast in the memory of the good old days when some New Yorkers actually went to Times Square and not only were the mailboxes not removed and the manhole covers soldered shut, you could actually bring a bottle of champagne and drink it right there. Back then people would actually linger in the square for hours after, partying, rather than disappearing within minutes of the ball dropping because they have been denied a bathroom break for 12 hours or longer. Ah, the old days.
