 Oh yes! He was here on that corner and we took a photo from the car but unfortunately some one stepped in front of him at the wrong moment so you can only see a slice of him from the side. It was a sight right there on 34th Ave.
Thanks for this and the other podcasts. They are always interesting

BTW, instead of user-570401025 you might be able to change your soundcloud URL to be JHBG or something like that.

Neighborhood Chat / Naked Cowboy sighting
« Last post by E train on May 16, 2020, 04:40:15 PM »
Today while I was on a return leg of long walk to Steinway Street along 34th Avenue I saw The Naked Cowboy who was standing on the corner of I think 72nd and 34th. He was in his regular jockey shorts with Naked Cowboy on his rear, white guitar, and  multiple Trump 2020 signs on his front. He was chatting affably with a couple and I thought I heard him say he would be back next week. So was this some kind of performance art, a paid political event or simply the Cowboy defying the odds of finding Trump voters in this the bluest of blue strongholds of anti-Trump feeling. Does anyone know?

Don't know if anyone caught the segment about bird calls in our area on The Brian Lehrer Show this week.  There were some serious bird enthusiasts and it was a really fun listen!  (Look for Name That Birdsong! on wnyc radio.)
I agree with you on testing, but contact tracing is not a choice. A positive test will kick off tracing.

The city is actively recruiting contact tracers.

When you say contact tracing is not a choice, who are you referring to it not being a choice?

For what it's worth, I've applied to be a contact tracer. I'm part of the gig economy, which means my income is down and $57k/year for a job with requirements of a high school diploma or GED sounds like something to try for in this economic environment. Just got a confirmation the other day from the company handling the job applications that they've been overwhelmed by applications and will be in touch soon.

Business interests hardly need the Soros Fdt. to inspire them to want to resume profit-making activities or ignore their effects on the health and lives of their employees in the process, it comes naturally. As for contract tracing, if you don't have it, forget about testing, it is basically useless in terms of quelling the spread of the virus.

The sector councils are not inspirational. They provide guidance for best practices. Perhaps too they have a reporting function as the mayor's compliance text-report program was widely denounced.

But I think it's rather silly to worry about not having six feet of space when simply touching the ATM itself probably exposes you to more germs.
While ATMs in general are loaded with germs, it's not every germ we're currently avoiding. Covid-19 virus is most infectious in droplets spread by sneezing and coughing and less so by touching things. If you see someone using the ATM, you're better off coming back when it's empty. Or better yet, stop using cash.
