Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

As soon as I find out that a giant third Apple Store in Manhattan is going up in the Meatpacking District (I was actually tipped off by a colleague), I learn that Apple is scouting out yet another new location.

Manhattan store #4 is likely to be on W. 34th Street, across from the Empire State Building. That’s primarily tourista territory, although if they really wanted to scoop that market, a storefront in Times Square would be more to the point.

As if that’s not a veritable bushel of Apples, Brooklyn is being rumored for the site of yet another Macs-and-iPods outlet.

All that’s not even counting the other existing Apple store in the five boroughs, in Staten Island. Memo to Steve Jobs: NYC is fairly covered, thanks.

What to make of Dick Cheney hoisting a shotgun this weekend to shoot at some birds near Poughkeepsie?

Offhand, based on the Veep’s track record with hunting rifles, I’d say that the Homeland Security Threat Level for the Hudson Valley has just jumped from High/Orange to Red/Severe.

On the plus side, this means more empirical data for The Cheney Shotgun Experiment.
