Quote Of The Day

by Brad Warbiany

Posted in its entirety, with apologies to Lexington, because it’s short and wouldn’t make sense otherwise:

A harrowing tale from a taxi driver this morning. An immigrant from Pakistan, he spent the past twenty years building up a successful limousine business in New York City, ferrying Masters of the Universe around.

He was living the American Dream, managing more than a hundred cars, but the recession destroyed his business in the blink of an eye, and he is now back in an entry-level job, driving a cab. He told me that many of his former colleagues have moved down to Washington, DC. “New York is finished. Washington is where the future is”.

Welcome to America, comrade.
