Other stories include another New York Times article which talks more about the New York City Housing Authority elevators again which is worthy of a read plus many more goodies in the show. Thanks for the e-mails everyone, especially the ones which talked about our economy and being as optimistic about it as possible. Another included a funny YouTube video which I've linked below of a comedian Dane Cook who does a short skit on a situation he ran into while riding in an elevator. Also Elevator Escalator Safety Week is fast approaching click here to find out how easy it is to participate! Talk to you next week everyone! Enjoy the show.
