Oh good, more NYC navel-gazing. I was afraid we'd run out!

Free rein. You're a book publisher!

I was just going to say that myself. What's next? "Hone in on"? A "flaw in the ointment"? I mean, jeepers.

For that matter: "Our friends ... has"? Also, I'd probably go with a comma after starting that sentence with "But", and a semicolon between the two clauses. [Exit Frustrated Writer; staggers off toward fritzing neon sign: "Sour Grapes Club".]
