Evan recently wrote, when I asked if Jon Knepp was right– if there was a rainbow over Huntingdon:
There was a rainbow but you guys took to long to get here and probably missed it already. In New York rainbows can’t exist because when they go to set them up all the people rush out of the buildings to see it. And as Jake informed me not all the people who live in New York are able to go out of the buildings at once because there is simply not enough room. So instead of worrying about rainbows happening at random and mass building exodus congesting the already tough to navigate streets, they schedule another light related spectacle once a year to coincide with the New Year. But here in Huntingdon rainbows are legal, happen regularly, and can be seen from street level without having to perch on someone’s shoulders.
True. Which is probably why Jake, starting today, is spending his summer in Huntingdon. I am spending my summer in Brooklyn. Whose shoulders do we stand on to see each other?
