As Hurricane Irene heads for New York City, certain to End Civilization As We Know It, I was alarmed to stand this morning on my friend's deck and see that his eccentric old lady neighbor (Saffron shawls! Feeds the pigeons! Likes to chortle in German! Ach, Du lieber!) has not removed any of the crap from her deck. All of it could take to the air during 100+ mph winds, and become lethal. Does anyone know what a lovingly hand-thrown clay gnome-shaped crock pot might do to human tissue on impact?
