The whole time I was watching this:
…I was thinking of this:
The Tin Woodman knew very well he had no heart, and therefore he took great care never to be cruel or unkind to anything. “You people with hearts,” he said, “have something to guide you, and need never do wrong; but I have no heart, and so I must be very careful….”
Now would you like to see something incredibly eerie…?
How often do the people we say have no hearts, in fact have the greatest ones?
Who are the people who tell us that they’re not worth having?

This happens in NYC in the wintertime. I’ve never understood electrics very well, but cold weather causes some kind of a circuitry malfunction in the crosswalk signs which were installed a couple years ago. (The city is gradually replacing these with newer models which won’t be vulnerable to this charming malfunction.)
