Remember That One Time ___?

"...One thing White loved in New York was its refusal to succumb — to gravity or the impossible logistics of ushering millions onto and out of an island every day — and the way a feeling of belonging to something unique and mighty seemed to inject the most diverse set of people 'with massive doses of a supplementary vitamin.'

There’s a wider lesson for America, and particularly Washington, in that supplement."

-Roger Cohen, "New York and the Planes"
