Thanks, all.

Ordo, he does look like Obama.

Except for his sneakers, he's dressed very professionally with his dress pants, wool overcoat, and winter scarf. But if he's like me, he has a pair of penny loafers in one of his desk drawers.

No worries, Ordo. "Capitalist", like "Photoshop", need not be a dirty word.

Billy, that intersection has changed immensely since I was there in 1969. Capitalism is good, I use it all the time.

Great shot, as usual!

Thanks, Hawgwild. I'd say the glass buildings weren't there in 1969 if I had to guess.

I never said Capitalist. I said Society.
Please do not change my words.

My fault vv, my fault. Not a good idea to make a political comment. I love capitalism!

Oh, no problem, Ordo. Thanks. I actually think it's my fault.

I actually liked your first comment and thought it was "sociological". Then, since I was reading the book, "Bridge of Spies" (2010) by Giles Whittell, (just finished it this morning -- good read) which is largely about how the Cold War got started, my mind was swirling with 60s terminologies when "capitalism" and "communism" were terms not of endearment used by either side. So tongue-in-cheek I turned your sociological comment into a political one. I'm sure others thought it was sociological, too.
