In case of low blood pressure emergency

Via Atrios, witness the abject, soulless NIMBYism from the well-fed aristocrats on the Upper East Side:
They are fears normally associated with the less-charming realities of urban life, like a homeless shelter or a late-night dive bar. But in this case, they are focused on something quite different: new entrances to a subway station.

Some New Yorkers can only dream of having a subway train ferry them straight to their front door, but residents of East 69th Street say the entrances have no place on what they believe to be one of the prettiest streets around.
That kind of entitlement has to create its own weather.
