Where to find the sharpest political commentary in the NYT
Why, in the garden section, of course!
A reporter's morning walk through the lovely Manhattan flower market on West 28th street finishes up with a suggestion for a visit to a very special local bookstore:
You’ve saved on flowers and plants, but you’ve still spent money. Time to assuage that capitalist guilt. Check out Revolution Books, 146 West 26th Street, (212) 691-3345, for your pick of Communist fare and other left-wing literature. Politically pointed gifts are for sale, too, like the empty $1 Obamalade bottles, which warn they might cause “massive loss of life in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Pakistan.” A clerk said, “A lot of people got taken with Obama, but it’s just the same Bush program rebranded.”
