The Day After

Scott Turner of Rocky Sullivan’s post-inaugural address on Only The Blog Knows Brooklyn reminded us of some things from an old New York Magazine article about the “de-gentrification” of Red Hook.

According to a pre-inauguration piece in the Chicago Tribune:

The 48-mower contingent will include one topped with a 5-foot replica of the Washington Monument, another with a well-endowed mannequin wearing a T-shirt declaring “D.C. or bust,” and another called “Obama the self-starter.” It features two hands emerging from the mower and grabbing the starter rope.

Read the blog to see why that bizarre quote might make you feel a little brighter about the future.
