Yes, it's true. I ride a Citibike -- the lovechild of evil corporation Citibank and soon-to-be-former Mayor Bloomberg -- AND participate in a CSA. No need to look so shocked. Or comment so dryly. Just keep minding your own business, and I will avoid pointing out the ludicrousness of your horn-rimmed spectacles and non-matching pant legs.
Oh, wait, one more thing. You should sit down for this. I am a progressive Democrat AND I love Bloomberg. Given the choice, I might even vote him in for a fourth term. According to Fareed Zakaria in The Future of Freedom, liberal autocracies have a pretty good track record. (Illiberal democracies, not as much.) I blew your mind with that one, didn't I?
Just kidding. I heart democracy. (But I would still vote for Bloomberg again.)
Hard as it is to believe, despite the complete absence of tattoos and superfluous piercings, I live in hipster Brooklyn, too. And although I function independently of the hive mind that produced the idea for artisanal mayonnaise, I still want to feed my family fresh, organic produce.
Woah, woah. Try not to breathe so quickly through your mouth. Do you need a paper bag?
ps - You make me want to move to the Bronx.
pps - I'm sneakily linking this up with Finish the Sentence Friday because I love the hosts and have always wanted to participate. Once in public, I saw somebody... unleash a snark attack on an unsuspecting mom just trying to feed her family fresh produce and be a good citizen in the process. Oh wait, that happened to me. This evening.
