Told Linda there was a N.Y. Times article that she needed to see.
"They've found a little red book by Jung."
I had to laugh. "That's a very Jungian response..."
Speaking of 'slack' in the economy. Outside the downtown core, I'm seeing commercial space that's been available for one, two, three or more years.
I know when I inquired for a couple of those spaces a couple of years ago that they were way, way too high in rent price, in my opinion. Wonder if they've come down.
Interesting. The Bulletin effectively buried the unemployment story in the article on benefits extension.
Chuck from the Downtowners was in to tell me that they would "try to keep a sidewalk corridor open" to my store during the Fall Fest. See, with all the drinking going on, they're closing the street to minors.
Well, I've always joked that I should serve alcohol to see if most of my business is adults, and I guess this way I'll find out.
Wonder out the other businesses on the street feel about this. Most of them aren't oriented toward kids....and I wonder if that's why they chose Minnesota. I'm sure places like Goody's and Leaping Lizards wouldn't have agreed to an adults only scene...
I'm going to make one of my rare political observations on this blog.
I've never paid much attention to the workings of Congress on particular bills. So it's been interesting the watch the mess they make trying to pass a health insurance reform bill.
If something approaching a health care bill doesn't emerge from Congress, I'm going to come to the conclusion that Congress is owned; lock, stock and barrow.
And that we as a country are well and truly screwed.
