The math was George Lucas + Steven Spielberg + Harrison Ford: how can they go wrong? I went to see the new Indiana Jones film and discovered that math really equals (old man-young apprentice, dad-son revelations and sword fights) plus (alien skull, close encounters of the third kind, and ETs go home). Special effects of the worst kind, definitely TV-quality. I walked back via the ever-changing mess of St. Marks place:

St Marks is a mess,
And was always a mess.
But now the theory goes
That lower east side is a mess,
And Williamsburg is, and so's
Brighton Beach, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a mess.
St Marks, of course, is a mess
But was always an exciting mess.

ps: I just an ad for a Karaoke bar called, uh, Sing Sing, which to locals, means this.
