Jaywalking in Jerusalem
From the "Metropolitan Diary" in the NY Times (date unknown)
The jaywalking problem in New York City reminded me of a time when
my husband and I were on a visit to Jerusalem.
As we waited patiently at a busy intersection for the "walk" signal,
a young man sped across the street against the light. An elderly
gentleman waiting with us turned and said sadly, "Two thousand years
he's waiting for the Messiah, and he can't wait for a light."
