It's in the air ...

Love, that is. 

This is Valentine's Day, that wonderful holiday created by greeting card companies. Tonight, in our own fair city and across the fruited plain, lovers young and old will be celebrating their burning passion of each other ... and hopefully "gettin' down" or "gettin' busy" (as those of us who speak the da' hip-hop jive might say). 

Where do lovers meet these days? Online, usually. However, in NYC, some people have met at some of our more famous landmarks -- kicking off their relationships at places like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, etc. Today on WNYC, this was a topic and is, apparently, the subject of a new book. 

On a side note: speaking about speakin' da jive, did you know that New Yorkers apparently Tweet differently than people elsewhere? Apparently we use different abbreviations and catch-phrases from our fellow Americans. I'm not sure if that makes us cooler or just more annoying. Read this and let me know what you think.
