Street Evangelists Integrate Earthquake Into Patter

Last night, on the passageway leading to the 1/2/3 train at the 42nd Street subway stop, a street preacher (usually the sort to offer vague prognostications) had already added the day’s news into his patter.

“You feel that earthquake today?,” the gentleman asked passers-by. “You feel the earth move? Jesus is coming back! He is warning us!”

We remain grateful that no damage was done in the city and that the earthquake had not occurred on May 22.
