Between holiday anxiety, the usual neuroses of just living in a crowded mass of humanity and that whole election thing, people are a little on edge.

Sixth grader Ciro Ortiz has been spending the last few Sundays with a stand at a subway stop (Bedford Avenue L) giving straight talk advice to people the way only an 11-year-old can. As an example, he tells a man upset that his girlfriend is a vegan that “she didn’t get mad at him for eating meat” and that they’ll just have to deal with it.
