On the subway today, I watched a couple, a pregnant woman and her male partner, looking at a print out of her sonogram. They were smiling and pointing at it. They presumably had just come from the hospital because he had a “Patient’s Bill of Rights” on his lap. I felt warmed to see this. Only on a subway in Manhattan can you come so close to people’s lives like this.
A few feet away, a man was reading the NY Daily News. The headline on the front page read “Baby Bomb.”
