I imagine they all went to NY City so they could protest at the UN against the President of Iran : something that is currently fashionable.
I didn't quite get all that Columbia University business. Why would you invite somebody as despicable as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to speak, and then - before he could speak-begin reading him the riot act ?
Somebody speculated it was a quid pro quo: Iran was holding some Columbia University person captive and agreed to release him only on the condition their President be given a special forum at Columbia.
Then I read that the person being released was actually connected to one of George Soros' groups, and that set me to wondering what in the devil Columbia University was doing playing patty-cake with George Soros !
I seem to recall, when Harvard teamed up with Soros' chums, Russia (and the American taxpayer) got ripped off for hundreds of millions of dollars ; and Harvard wound up being forced to make good for part of the theft. You'd think people would learn - but sometimes they are just like pigeons !
Speaking of pigeons, there was a brief flurry here when a flock of pigeons decided it was a good day to fly around -and around - and around the neighborhood in tight circles. The ones we have around here are like city pigeons - only not as smart. I could hear them calling to one another:
"Britney ! Tupac ! Shakira !!" They fly another loop around the neighborhood.
"Gwen Stefani ! Justin ! Rihanna !!" ...and around they go again, with one straggler flapping furiously in an effort to catch up with the flock. " Tyra Banks ! Oprah !!" ,he calls; but they don't wait up for him.
Phew ! I'm glad our young people are nothing like those bird-brains !!
Our young people would be texting those names.
Speaking of texting,somebody was involved in a fatal accident ...apparently while texting ! The car he was driving drifted across the center line and hit another car full of young people head-on : killing two and seriously injuring another.
When the cops and rescue workers pulled the first driver out of the wreckage, they discovered he was still trying to text somebody !!
Anything can happen on Empty Patio Day !!
