I'd never seen so many. Ironically, I had to meet Erich for lunch around the corner from Rockefeller Center and needed to pick up some things in SoHo. The droves of bedazzled morons drove me to walk in the street...on 5th, on Canal, on Broadway. Upward they stared. In the middle of sidewalks they stopped. In they strode through doorways my exiting body transiently occupied. I gave up my patience and stopped saying "excuse me." It was all elbows and shoulders from there on out, countless stunned visitors in my wake.
