Not to worry, David. NYC embraced my wife and I, as it has embraced so many millions of others. Those arms are warm, cuddly, and civilized, and no government shutdown could ever override that. I just found the justaposition of the closed Federal Hall, and open NYSE, rather poetic.
Some time later this weekend, we hope to finally finish off the “sandwich” we ordered (and started) at the Carnegie Deli. On the other hand, given that Canadian Thanksgiving is Monday, maybe we should just save it for Thanksgiving dinner. There may well still be enough for everybody!
