Metropolitan Museum Evacuated; Visitors Shvitz on the Steps

Philippe de Montebello, at a cooler moment
The Associated Press reports that the Metropolitan Museum was evacuated at 4 p.m. today because of a brief power outage in Manhattan and the Bronx: “Visitors were forced to sit on the outside steps in the sweltering heat,” according to AP.
Gee, weren’t they allowed to go somewhere else and maybe get a cold drink? Is Philippe really THAT powerful?
