Early this morning (Sunday, 9/23) I took myself to the Bear Mountain Bridge area hoping for the wonderful mist and cloud that had typified the river view for the last 5 or 6 days that I witnessed on my way to work. But, the air was too dry for that. What's here is what there was, which still ain't too shabby.
While I was at mid span, a group of 10 or 12 runners approached me on the narrow pedestrian way. They were all West Point cadets (mostly men, but also two women). I said "Good Morning" as they jogged past me, and each of them replied with: "Good Morning, SIR!". What a classy group of kids they are. It's nice to see one's tax dollars spent so wisely for a change. They are every inch Gentlemen and Ladies, as well as, no doubt, excellent soldiers.
