*Everyday Chatter

This statement from David Brooks makes me giddy: "Nov. 4, 2008, is a historic day because it marks the end of an economic era, a political era and a generational era all at once. Economically, it marks the end of the Long Boom, which began in 1983. Politically, it probably marks the end of conservative dominance, which began in 1980. Generationally, it marks the end of baby boomer supremacy, which began in 1968."

Phew- I kinda had you pegged for a McCain supporter, Moss.

Even though I think it's obvious that Obama will better for local and independent businesses both in NYC and throughout the country, I was worried that your aversion to change might have irrationally pushed you in the direction of McCain. But apparently not!
