*Everyday Chatter

Just got this Anon comment: "My friend Ferrel at the Yippee Cafe and Museum just told me that they shut the cafe and building down. Don't know why." Is this part of the renovation plan or something more serious?

You can keep this writer struggling. See his http://www.100Whores.com it's been the St Marks Bookshop with hardly any notice for the past three months. Sure would appreciate it.

Those bed bug shirts are helpful, but I'd really love a pair of flannel jammies with a bedbug print all over them. Etsy?

WHAT? Why doesn't Crime Stoppers offer a $2000 reward for EVERY mugging in the city? What's so special about these two chicks?

Thanks for posting the Crime Stoppers report, I live in that neighborhood and will watch out when I'm walking around there late at night.

I was just going to tell you about the CrimeStoppers flyer. Good to see that someone else was on the case. That side of the school is quite creepy & tunnel-like. However, there have been some security guards present, as of late. At least the scaffolding on the 17th. St. side is open to the street.
