Overheard in New York - It's a Better Idea Than Current Policy

Overheard in New York is the first of three 'Overheard' sites, which take something simple, like eavesdropping, and turn it into an even more voyeuristic pastime.

That's right, if you eavesdrop something really good, the site encourages you to send it in and share it with the internet. Currently, there is an Overheard at the Beach and Overheard at the Office; it is apparent which site features conversations from which local.

I haven't sent anything in to the site yet, despite the fact that some of the people I work with say the most ridiculous things on a relatively regular basis.

Anyway, I really like this posting, and the implications that are inherent within it. Some people can't tell the difference between fiction and reality, and in times like these (the brink of World War III, just to start things off), maybe we do need a Jack Bauer or Superman or Chef Gordon Ramsey or Supernanny to save the day...

It's a Better Idea Than Current Policy
Long Island mother: It's so sad about the kidnapped Israeli soldier.
8-year-old son: Yeah, when are they going to send Jack Bauer into Gaza to save him?
