Accentuate the Positive

Gone for a week in New Mexico (look for two upcoming stories in the Times real estate section from that corner of the globe, and a photo slide show on Polis). A lot sure has happened since I left, much of it not so good. Honestly, it’s hard to focus on interesting, fun, things happening in New York City to write about for Polis when it seems like the rest of the world is going to hell in a hand basket. So how about I ignore all the bad shit happening in the rest of the world and focus on all the bad shit that’s happening right here in New York? Good idea!
