There was considerable discussion while the Calgarians were here as to whether it was permissible to cross a street while :
1) the Don't Walk Sign was still on
2) there wasn't any traffic within a quarter mile (hmm. .25/1 :X/1.6= .4) POINT FOUR Kms in either direction.
I pointed out to them that New Yorkers cross streets whenever they damned well please, staring into the eyes of the drivers and DARING them to hit them.
