 NEW YORK 1990

 A New York newspaper is inviting its readers to “give the gift of hate” in its classified advertisement columns. The Manhattan Pennysaver invites its readers to “slay a rotten neighbour, to badmouth the public figure of your choice, to spew forth your anger.” Among entries on the hate page has been this missive from Janet to Jake: “Thanks for the wonderful dinner. After eating with your fingers, burping and passing wind all evening, I say, `Find somebody else to date that’s your own species.’”
1………………………………………..

 

You cannot stay neutral about New York. 2………………………………………… As far as New Yorkers themselves are concerned, they love to hate it. For instance, The New York Times last year ran a series of leading articles under the overall title: “New Calcutta: an occasional series”. Several of the articles have dealt with homelessness and the need for public housing. A specific case is that of the mentally ill. In New York, as in London, many of the city’s homeless are former occupants of mental institutions who have been put on the streets without adequate shelter provided for them in the city. No one knows exactly how many in New York have no homes to go to, but it is roughly estimated at 100,000. 3………………………………………… There are the weepers, those who sit with their knees drawn up, hand out, crying continuously. There are the ones who ask for big money: “Give me a hundred dollars,” he shouts. So you give him a quarter.

Everything in New York is extreme. It is a city of the incredibly rich and the miserably poor. For the rich, there are expensive private schools and hospitals, concert halls and theatres – although fewer of those than formerly – and restaurants. The poor are on a hiding to nowhere: all public facilities, schools and hospitals and housing, are deteriorating. 4……………………………………….. There are 250,000 heroin addicts, 500,000 crack addicts, 400,000 carriers of the Aids virus.

Of all New York statistics, those concerning crimes of violence are most often quoted. About five people are murdered every day. The record for one day’s killing was set on 9 July 1988 when 20 people were murdered. The total for any one year is going on 2,000. These are not the traditional gangland slayings. 5……………………………….. A typical killing occurred in the Bronx when a 14-year-old boy saw two friends being harassed by another teenager. When he tried to cool things down, the teenager pulled out a revolver and shot him. He was dead in seconds. In another case, a woman went to pull her child away from her apartment door because she knew that her flatmate’s boyfriend was outside and angry. A blast from a shotgun ripped through the door, killing her.

The latest fashion in violence is called “wilding”. Posses of teenagers often go on the rampage. Their most frequent victims are fellow blacks and Hispanics from the ghetto, violent and drug-infested neighbourhoods which are no longer in anyone’s control. 6…………………………………………….. The strangest attacks have been on white women by gangs of black teenage girls: victims have reported being stabbed from behind by needles or pins, and some of them feared that they had been injected with an Aids-infected syringe.

New Yorkers routinely compare their city with Calcutta. But the comparison is unfair: İngilizce Boşluk Tamamlama , İngilizce7……………………………………………. It also has the know-how. In the early eighties, through the drive of one man, Richard Ravitch, the New York subway system was saved from total breakdown. Mr Ravitch, by huge efforts, raised the $8 billion capital needed to clean the stations and trains of their graffiti, to lay down new track, and buy new, air-conditioned rolling stock.

What Washington has spent its money on is laser-guided weapons systems, and the other fancy hardware of the star wars programme, such as the free electron laser. A single research facility for the FEL, built in the New Mexico desert, has cost a cool billion. 8…………………………………………….
