Lately I've been hearing that a lot of things happen 'faster than a New York minute'. I've been assuming that things in New York (and it must be the city and not, for example, the up state to which they refer)happen at a fast pace and so time seems to fly and thus everything seems shorter than out here in LaLaLand where we are too busy laughing at the new Republican candidate for Senator to notice time passing at any speed. I didn't think the expression really meant that time passes at a different pace in the Big Apple. Come to find out I was wrong.
Having explained all of this, I now see that most witsendmagazine postings cannot be read in a New York minute.
