The editors of this blog rarely do editorial pieces---it has been a conscious choice to provide information and avoid addressing our personal viewpoint unless the topic compelled. i think of all our posts, we have done 3 that would fall into the category "editorial". Coming home this evening i saw something that caught my attention. A bumper sticker that proclaimed LUVYADUBYA. Now you might be thinking, big deal, a bumper sticker. It wasn't so much the what as the where. 79th Street and Broadway, NYC, Upper West Side Manhattan.
In NYC most often cited statistics show there is a 5-1 percent differential between Democrats and Republicans [Sources: NY Young Republican Club, Inc and Urban Elephants]. The 64th Assembly District in the East Village and 66th Assembly District in the West Village currently has that ratio at 6-1 and 6.1-1 respectively.[Source: East Village Red Man] So you can imagine how rare it is in this town to see a show of support of the current commander in chief. More unique still, the vehicle that was sporting the sticker had NY plates. Also noteworthy is that the ride was a slammin' '06 black Dodge Ram pickup. Strong messages of support for the US economy and George W. Bush on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Silence is golden.
