An Economist blogger says he can judge the health of an economy by taking a look at the faces of the men in its economic capital:
During the 2001 recession I knew things were getting better when I noticed lots of men sporting tans. I called it the hedge-fund tan. The tanned men I spoke with had lost their jobs at big banks, used their severance to take a long holiday, and just returned to work at a hedge fund. But for now, the New York man remains pale and stubbly (note—this was always the look in much of Brooklyn).

The Thicket reports that only Tennessee can match New York in stability of leadership in its upper legislative chamber:
The only other chamber we can think of that has had only four top leaders since 1965 is the Tennessee Senate where John Wilder served as lieutenant governor (by virtue of being elected speaker of the Senate, not statewide) for 36 of those years (1971-2007). None of the three other Tennessee lieutenant governors during this period were Jared Maddox (1965-67), Frank Gorrell (1967-71), and Ron Ramsey (2007-) served more than four years, but Wilder's longevity enables them to match New York.SEE ALSO: The Peebles
