“Saturday is the 42nd anniversary of the July 13-14, 1977 New York City blackout, which took out power to most of the city, resulted in widespread civil disturbances and looting, and helped usher in an era of noxious “tough on crime” politics. Another blackout struck NYC today, though this one appears to be restricted to parts of Manhattan and the primary concern appears to be rescuing people trapped in elevators.”



Any gigs go to hell in a hand basket?

"Huge"?

Over 72,000 people were affected. Out of what, millions in NYC?

Ease up, chicken little.

J-Lo at MSG was canceled. My girlfriend spent hours getting a ticket problem solved for a client. She finally got her client into MSG and then they had to evacuate.
