Man-one? Man-two?

No. Manatee!

Over the past week, boaters and bloggers have been energetically tracking a manatee in its lumbering expedition along the Atlantic Coast and up the Hudson River.
...
The manatee has been spotted at 23rd Street near Chelsea Piers, West 125th Street, and later in Westchester County. It appeared to be healthy.

Randy Shull, a boater from Ossining, spotted the manatee about 4:30 p.m. yesterday while his 21-foot boat was floating at Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow.




I am off to sample supposedly the best pizza in the world, which is supposedly in Trenton. I am skeptical. Will report.

UPDATE: Pizza was very good. Best in the world? Up there with the best I've ever had, anyway, with Pepe's or Modern Apizza in New Haven and Joe's on Bleeker also making the list. Fond of Di Fara in Midwood too. Maybe someday I'll compile the definitive Best Pizza in the World rankings.

It was DeLorenzo's on Hudson street in Trenton, by the way. They did an excellent crust and used sweet peppers for the peppers and onions pie. Major drawback: it was absolute crap cold. Half the pizza experience is eating it cold.

    do manatees navigate via echolocation, or do they just sort of lumber along?

    on ABC's Medical Mysteries i just saw a segment on blind humans who have learned echolocation. they can ride bikes, play basketball, describe objects in front of them, all by clicking their tongues and forming images from the sound information.

    also, is it just me, or are progeria children the cutest people in the world? they're kind of the opposite of the whole cuteness-as-infancy theory.

    (there's a progeria kid on the show right now)

    They do not echolocate.

    Manatees, silly. If progeria kids couldn't echolocate, how would they ever escape Maury Povich?

    Refresh the page, Ems. I put it in the body of the post.

    It's true about DeLorenzo's cold. "They don't even take it home, they eat it in the restaurant," says my sister about the family who runs the place.

    BTW it's important that Antid Oto points out that it was the Hudson street DeLorenzo's. The Hamilton street DeLorenzo's is a bit more restauranty and offers very, very good pizza, but only the Hudson street DeLorenzo's offers the best pizza in the world.

    Pepe's may be it for me, though Grimaldi's in Brooklyn may even be a little better. I hope to get to one or both next month if I can get to NYC after Columbus Day.
