New York? I’ll tell you how New York is. New York has all the answers.[…]The city lives by slogans, isms, and fast sure answers. New York is saying to me right now: you, Jean Louise Finch, are not reacting according to our doctrines regarding your kind, therefore you do not exist. The best minds in the country have told us who you are. You cna’t escape it, and we don’t blame you for iy, but we do ask you to conduct yourself within the rules that those who know have laid down for your behavior, and don’t try to be anything else.

[..] I learned nothing from you except how to be suspicious. I didn’t know what hate was until I lived among you and saw you hating every day. […] I despise your quick answers, your slogans in the subways, and most of all I despise your lack of good manners: you’ll never have ’em as long as you exist.

Just saw a rather unusual cat walking thru backyards of three rowhouses. Fat, compact, with squarish head and bushy striped tail. Very relaxed, not like normal urban cats – as if it knows no danger. Ran to take my cell from the charger for a snapshot, but the cat disappeared thru a crooked plank in a white picket fence…Am I still dreaming?
