Hello. If this is your first time to Deckchairs on the Titanic, I’d like to welcome you here — a new feature at The Site at MANOVERBOARD.com.
Deckchairs is a Web log which I will periodically or even regularly update to discuss, shout out, or otherwise talk about various issues related to art and culture, the Web, politics, ideologies, news, technology, business, and maybe even myself.
I woke up this morning to the news of a new mayor in the City of New York, Mike Bloomberg. Although many people around me had predicted it, I figured that Bloomberg couldn’t win. But he did. New Yorkers cast their vote for a man with no political expertise and a lot of money and smarts (the political and party parallels to November 2000 are striking). The people have voted with the distinct hope is that he can tie all of the psychological, financial, economic, and ideological strings together again to make this city more whole. A lot of lives and livelihoods will rest in his hands. To say the least. I’ll say more later.
The name, Deckchairs on the Titanic, provided by blog extraordinaire and pal Victor Sparrow, hopefully speaks for itself. I hope Mike Bloomberg will do so as well.
