Car 54 Where Are You?

There's a hold up in the Bronx,
Brooklyn's broken out in fights
There's a traffic jam in Harlem
That's backed up to Jackson Heights
There's a scout troop short a child,
Khrushchev's due at Idlewild*
Car 54, Where Are You?

-Theme from television show, Car 54 Where Are You? (1961-1963)

In the news today:

1. 8 dead, 108 reports of people missing in mudslide.

2. Egyptian court sentences 529 people to death.

3. 6 dead, 18 injured when gunman open fire inside a Kenyan church.

4. 100 Congolese refugees die when boat overturns.

(Sigh) Today I prefer Francis and Gunther's world.

*Now know as John F. Kennedy International Airport.
