Amtrak Shocker

Got what had to be the last seat on the 3:00 train to DC yesterday. Was at a table, four seats at it. Two lively, attractive college girls, one laid-back Philly-area lawyer. ALL REPUBLICANS. ALL BUSH VOTERS.

Whenever I take a cab I inevitably get into politics without trying. Most drivers, frankly, who I have encountered, are in the Kerry camp—and they are usually Arab and have the impression Bush is waging war against them. But, I have encountered pro-Bush ones lately, and some Arab pro-Bush cabbies. And it’s always tied to 9/11.

Maybe things did change. For one, it became safe to admit to being Republican in the northeast corridor.
