A Thought from Yesterday ...

It's the birthday (October 4) of journalist Brendan Gill, (books by this author) born in Hartford, Connecticut (1914), who wrote for The New Yorker for more than 60 years, publishing fiction, essays, and criticism.

Gill loved his job and he loved New York. He said, "You feel, in New York City, the energy coming up out of the sidewalks, you know that you are in the midst of something tremendous, and if something tremendous hasn't yet happened, it's just about to happen."

I think it's fair to say: someday (10 months?), it'll be great to be in New York. In the meantime, it's safe to travel in Pittsburgh today because the Steelers held on to win last night.
