Guardian After All These Years


Columbus Circle subway station, New York

Curtis Sliwa founded the Guardian Angels as a kind of vigilante auxiliary police force back in the days when the police were failing to keep the subways safe. Now better known as a conservative talk-radio host, I’ve run across him a few times in the subway, always sporting his trademark beret and Guardian Angels insignia, rather like Castro and his beard.
