Well, being female and living in the bronx are not good ways to go about that.
Don't worry about the nuclear power plants. The city parks the idling diesel
trucks up there.
Also a note to the smoke-complainers: Suck it. SUUUCK IT. 2nd hand
smoke blasting you at doorways is the price you pay for not having
2nd hand smoke INSIDE the buildings. besides, it's got nothin
on those diesel fumes. Big difference is smoke stinks, but you might
not know when you're breathing burned diesel.
