Response to Historic NY (Original post)

1. I hope the survivors are finally able to find a little bit of closure

Closure. I hate that word. There is no closure. There can eventually be acceptance of the facts, but I don't think it's really "closure".

Sounds like delivery of your papers there is as bad as it is here. I quit getting the paper delivered a lot of years ago because it started coming later and later, and I got tired of being irritated about it. Most days there wasn't much in it anyway.

My neighbor still gets the Sunday paper. She has pretty bad arthritis these days, and asked repeatedly for the paper to be tossed up farther on her sloped driveway so it would be easier for her to get. They won't do it, so every Sunday morning I go out and get it and prop it up beside her front door. She feels guilty about it, but I told her I don't at all mind, but I sure would mind if I looked out and saw that she fell while trying to get it, so she just needed to let me continue to do it.
