NFL holds Super Bowl in NYC; NYC unimpressed.
While the stadium is technically in New Jersey, it is considered equally if not primarily a New York stadium, and the NFL turned Times Square and Broadway into Super Bowl Boulevard Engineered By GMC.
Visitors can kick a football, watch television, ride a toboggan,
shop, enjoy a free slice of Papa John's pizza, play XBox, take a photo with the oversized Roman numerals 'XLVIII', use relevant Twitter hashtags,
and more. It is not decadent and depraved,
would tend to disagree. The Times discusses less vehement disapproval and disappointment,
while Business Insider wishes ill upon the city. Ticket sales are faltering relative to recent years,
with the new mayor among those skipping out.

From 1780 BCE
to 2001 AD
. Almost four thousand years of sociology, humanity, and depravity
. You've come a long way, baby
but just how far have we come? Are we going in the right direction? Can a person be inherently good or evil, or is it that one's actions, thoughts and words can be defined as good or evil, and Mankind is intrinsically definied as neither? What is your definition of evil? What is your depravity scale? Would you want to help define evil for the next four thousand years? Will it make a better world?
