From John Kass's outstanding column on the mayor's non-apology that wasn't:

"Then you walk away. Then it starts snowing. The windshield gets covered with snow. City meter readers won't be able to see the little parking stub showing that you paid. This leaves city meter readers two distinct options"

I can't believe this didn't occur to me. I am ashamed. I'm going to go sit for a while and think.
