Revolution/Evolution (Free Speech at the UN)
American Rattlesnake ^ | September 28, 2012 | Gerard Perry

Most New Yorkers-especially natives-are inured to the daily spectacle which makes their city something of a super-sized freak show. However, most of the time that sideshow is of the sort one normally expects to see in Coney Island, i.e. entertaining enough as a diversionary pursuit, but not so garish or mind-altering as to force you to reconsider your general opinion of humanity.

However, every year the United Nations General Assembly-the Mos Eisley Cantina of international diplomacy-convenes in Turtle Bay so that ostensible heads of state from around the world can make pompous, almost universally forgettable speeches before an assembled crowd of profligate diplomats, spies, Islamic terrorists, despots and indicted war criminals, among other political luminaries you would expect to find addressing an institution that was once headed by a man complicit in Nazi Germany’s numerous war atrocities in the Balkans...

I always have some nasty comment about mohammad (piss be upon him) when I see walking bedsheets like these.

Thanks.

I'm not a great photographer, but I try to write an interesting story.

The pictures you post are in focus, and they show interesting scenes. I’m not judging you on composition and lighting ;-).

I think everything you see is an interesting story ... there’s such a concentration of galactic weirdness in your environment!

So true.

Even without the UN, this city is something of a mass sideshow.

I clicked on the link to your website. This is a really well-written piece; it's good, old-fashioned journalism. You documented the events and provided photos to supplement the information. I like the title too.
