about New York. . . it's so much fun (not that South Bend is Hooterville!) Unfortunately, the rain was pretty tough yesterday--no cabs. And with my ankle, walking was out of the question. So I took a pedi-cab --a little rickshaw pulled by a biker from the New York Hilton (where I was told there'd be lots of cabs) to Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center. As he drove crazily, and the cabs drove crazily, and the whole NYC police department whizzed by, I was thinking there were a lot worse things than a broken ankle-and started to pray.Fordham was very hospitable, and Bill Mazella even made the trip down from Yonkers!
