Madness in NYC

In the course of explaining why the iPod is so popular in New York City, my main man Batojar makes some interesting observations about the difference between New York crazy people and those elsewhere, like here in SF.

New Yorkers are a people on the move, and that applies double for those with a DSM IV diagnosis on their resume. Uptown for some lithium, Downtown for a tinfoil beanie to defend against the Soviet mind-control satellites, Westside for a new Bible to beat, or Eastside for someone who may not have heard about this Jesus fellow.

This is a good point. I have to say, though, San Francisco has high quality crazy people that even New York is hard pressed to match. I mean, New York is importing some of our most brilliant, talented eccentrics.
