If you live in New York too long...

it seems you get a little desensitised to what's going on outside your front door. I received this note from a friend of mine this morning who lives on the border of Little Italy and Chinatown in a moderate to dodgy part of the Lower East Side

"two people were shot in front of that club next door to us last night. one of them apparently died out in the street. very sad. can't say i'm surprised though. setting up a 'west coast gangsta' club right in the middle of east coast ganster land is not a smart idea."

Were two people shot in the middle of the night at my front door (for all intents and purposes) I doubt I'd have been so blase...
