I, too, try to avoid Chinatown with all my might, whether in San Francisco or NYC. (Though SF’s Chinatown is not nearly as dirty and does boast some fine restaurants.) It’s just so crowded and tight, and I always feel like I’m going to run someone over—or worse, be run over myself. Every time I happen to walk or drive through it, I feel on the verge of a panic attack until I’m safely in North Beach, FiDi, Russian Hill, etc.
Oddly enough, despite my fear of overwhelming crowds, I LOVED Hong Kong. Macau wasn’t bad either.
admittedly i haven’t been to SF in 4 years or so, but I found North Beach to be more crowded than Chinatown. And more of a crush of people in Times Square than NY Chinatown.
So there are rumours flying round that Arsenal are going to make a move for “The Hunter”. The Dutch international currently plys his trade at AC Milan and while at Ajax, I believe he had the best ever if not one of the best goal to game ratios in that league and back then there was no doubting his ability to find the net. However since moving to Real Madrid and then to Milan, he seems to have hit a bad patch, not much playing time, not settling in with the squads and not at his goal scoring best. Personally, I would love to see him in a Arsenal shirt, I think while RvP is out, why not bring in Hunterlaar, he can score, he is deadly in the box and can easily slot into the 4-3-3 system we currently use, he was brought up with it at Ajax. I think this could be a great deal by Wenger to get him on loan and I would have no problem if that became permanent. But let’s just see what happens.
1. Wenger says we’re not looking for a striker (in no uncertain terms)
2. The last dude with a great scoring rate in Eredivisie that came to the Prem was Afonso Alves to Middlesboro - and we see how well he did. Plus he never showed he had anything with Madrid or Milan.So why now?
“Barack Obama has now, in just a year’s time, become the single most inept president perhaps in all of American history, and certainly in my lifetime. Never has so much political advantage been pissed away so rapidly, and what’s more in the context of so much national urgency and crisis. It’s astonishing, really, to contemplate how much has been lost in a single year.”—
what a powerful article. Lots to think about even if I don’t think Obama would have been capable of being an ultra-passionate fire breather (for obvious reasons) but it is right on with the strategy foibles and opportunity missed.
