Denying yourself Vitamin D with Shady Deprivation in Hoboken

I call this Hoboken Photo of the dayShady Deprivation” for a reason.

Take a look at this string of saps waiting for the bus (which originates from only a block away). It was a mildly warm day in the upper 80′s when I snapped this photo. But most of these people were cowering in the shade of the bank building adjacent to the bus stop. WTF?

Not only was it NOT an unbearable day – these poor people were depriving themselves of one of the most beneficial natural vitamins on planet earth: Vitamin D.

Why you would give up a free dose of “Vit-D” on a sunny early summer day is beyond me.
