1. Have you ever purchased from a NYC food truck?

If the owner doesn't have that bottle water or hotdog out in seconds, his or her loss. There is no time to survey the surroundings. The best way to deal with this threat is to understand who owns the trucks, but not invade their rights.

2. Thought it was a joke until I went to the link and found this part. UGH...



Although it seems like LICENSING and INSPECTIONS would take care of all of this. Otherwise, sounds a bit paranoid. Yeah, it could be a problem.

But how many thousands upon thousands of these are in the world that have no problems? Why suddenly this? Looking for another DHS allotment?

5. Whilst I am bemused by the hysteria, I was there when a truck blew up...

on John Street back in the 70's.

The damage was amazing, with windows blown out up to the fourth or fifth floor of neighboring buildings and if it happened during lunchtime the injury and death would have been much worse. I thought it had to be a bomb, but officially it was a propane tank that blew.

I was working a block away on the 17th floor and we heard the boom and saw debris flying past the window. We sat around wondering or a while, and by the time I got downstairs to look they had whisked the injured off to Beekman-Downtown and started to clean up the mess.

(Imagine the panic if that happened now with Homeland Security on top of it all directing a dozen agencies looking for terrorists.)

6. Slightly O/T, but I don't get the food truck fad. Guess I'm not hip enough.

7. Julia Child: "Americans are afraid of food."

also, these warnings serve as a good reason for cops to check out the merchandise of these so-called 'food trucks.'

"Gourmet belgian waffles with real whipped cream' ?! Better try one just to be sure.
