Not So Cozy Soup and Burger


On my day off yesterday, one of my tasks was to get a hair cut at my favorite, Dominic at Astor Haircutters. I was running late so that when I missed my bus connection, I took a cab down Broadway. At about 9th street, Broadway was completely  blocked off with yellow police tape. It was about a two block walk so I got out and walked. The police let me through the empty streets. I thought,"Oh my God, Astor Place has burned down and I'll never find another Dominic!" But, no, Dom was there and there was business as usual. When I got in the chair I asked what had happened. It seems that the Cozy Soup and Burger-really excellent burgers-had a shooting at 5:00 am. No one dead, just critical, so far. It was an argument. I didn't go there for lunch as planned...
