Listening to you and your guests talk about how crime has disappeared in NYC troubles me. Yes it is different - somewhat. Does no one remember the 15 year old girl shot in the head a few weeks ago, or are these stories that don't register because who it happens to is considered "other".

I lived in NY in the 70's and came back two years ago. I remember what it was like. But crime has not just migrated to the Madoff's and the investment bankers. It is still perilous and physical harm still exists.
