    Seen on my way home...

    A horse drawn carriage in Central Park with a flat tire. The rubber part of the wheel had come right off. The driver didn't seem to know what to do about it.

    And.. A nun riding an old 3 speed in full regalia. No, she wasn't wearing a helmet. I guess that would have messed up her head dress thing. (I really should know what that thing is called since I suffered through about 10 years of Catholic School...) But she did have a giant set of rosary beads wrapped around the handlebars. I guess GOD was her helmet.
    "...devil take the hindmost..."

    I suffered through even more Catholic school than you. It's called a wimple.

    Maybe she should be issued one of these holy helmets by those of the helmet religion persuasion. Twice as effective (which isn't saying anything) than the standard model.
