Also, the economy, slowly but surely, is turning around. Maybe the end of Bush's long Republican Recession is near:

I still see lots of empty storefronts in my neighborhood, perhaps more than ever. But I noticed some months ago that home sales in my building had recovered from a period where no apartments would sell despite the desirable location. And even though many storefronts remain empty, I am for the first time seeing a nice increase in the new stores opening up.

Let's hope the recovery continues.

Here is this week's newsletter:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
