I Get By With A Lil' Help From My Friends

You know the guys who stand outside these gourmet delis with a silver tray of little dixie cups full of some sort of fancy juice or some clump of unidentifiable meat on a toothpick?

Ok, and you know the poor bastards who stand on hot street corners all day with a sandwich board or a big sign that says "suits 3 for $99" or whatever?

Well, I just witnessed the most wonderful display of New York brotherly love. More New York than a squirrel sharing its food with a hungry pigeon.

I saw the toothpick sample guy offering the sandwich board guy to take as many toothpicks of meat as he wanted, and he did and he was very grateful and I smiled. Maybe this world ain't so bad after all.
