Today we meet City Councilwoman-Elect Margaret Chin (D-1), who will represent Chinatown, SoHo, TriBeCa, and parts of the Lower East Side. This is the first time Chinatown will be represented by a Chinese-American.

I got a chain email suggesting that I not spend money in any state with a republican senator until the jobs bill is addressed. Good idea.
