The government hasen't changed much over the years. Give a fancy and important name to a very common recorder and takes 4 guys in suits to run the simple record player/recorder! (plus a driver)
Those four men are security guards to keep the device from being stolen.
Nothing lasts on the streets of New York City.
A few years ago they had a serious garbage collector strike there.
Garbage piled up on all the streets.
One guy had no problem getting rid of his garbage.
He put it in a nice package and left the package in his unlocked car.
It was always gone the next morning.
Thanks to Yellow Cab, they did not accomplish their mission.
i helped my sister move out of new york city years ago. we had to have some one at the truck at all times, and even with a guard people looked to see what they would like to steal. once she came home from work and noticed all the homeless people trying on clothes at the dumpster. a second glance and she realized they were her clothes! land lord had decided to clean the basement, didn"t tell any body, just thew it all out. nice place to visit, but sure never need to go back
