I was chilled to the bone. The line outside Cooper Union University was not that long, but the doors hadn’t opened, and at 10:00 am that Monday morning, just standing in line, I was getting a full dose of ‘wind chill.’
‘With all the choices he had, why did the Mayor pick this rather small hall to give his public speech?’ I wondered as I entered the Grand Hall and took my seat with a lucky view of the stage. I asked the minister sitting next to me if he had any idea what the mayor was going to talk about.
“He is going to talk about what’s on everyone’s mind.”
What’s on everyone’s mind!
