Can we start with the political buzzwords?
Not sure about the rest of you – but when I see politicians and other commercial outlets following Obama’s campaign buzzword “Change,” I shake my head and laugh at the utter lack of originality and creativity.
They must think “Hey it worked for Obama – let’s copy him!” – and just toss the word around like it’s some magical formula for success.
For starters, “Change” is very broad word. Change how? For the better? for worse? For you? For me? For us? Generally? Superficially? Figuratively? What annoys me the most, is the lemmings of society that associate that word exclusively with “good,” or “positive” and so on.
One thing for sure in Hoboken is – that the nameplate on the desk of the Mayor will change – without a doubt. But for me, my use of the word will be reserved for change of $100, and some clean underpants.
Change comes in many shapes and forms
Here’s a photo gallery of “Change in Hoboken” – you tell me if it’s good, bad or “all of the above.”
(PS – for those that think this is some politically motivated post – it’s not. For one, I enjoyed the cartoon – and two, I had lots of “Hoboken stock photos” to dump – So I said, “why not?”)
