On May 14, 2013 I spoke with John McDonagh on Stone Street in Lower Manhattan following a demonstration by the New York Taxi Workers Alliance at the T.L.C. (Taxi and Limosine Commission) headquarters at 33 Beaver Street, the goal of which was to stop T.L.C.'s new sweeping 12-point rules package that would allow taxi companies to pass down the costs of repairs and owners summonses onto drivers and raise the lease by $7,000 for the year.

Caustically witty and sharp-tongued as ever, Fran Lebowitz and A.M. Homes lit up the stage at The New School's Tishman auditorium last night with a candid conversation that ranged in disparate topics from bravery in writing to changes in New York City and in particular, the West Village, to revenge, playing a judge on TV, to teaching, politics and Hurricane Sandy.
