Here’s the thing about what some people call “New York values.”
The people that live and work in New York City are too tough and too busy to let something like a couple of explosions get in their way.
To be sure, there was some anxiety visible on the faces of commuters and residents (more so among tourists), but the fact remains that two days later, it’s back to business.
And that’s what those who target NYC for cowardly attacks on civilians never seem to get.
The people of New York City, despite what politicians and the media tell them, are just too busy and brave to be rattled by yet another moron with several chips on his shoulder who thinks the world owes him a favor.
Better to just make sure the first responders are squared away in terms of coffee.
