Another week filled with elevator news articles! I was secretly hoping for a quieter week but oh well. Today on the show in addition to covering the news for the week we’re also giving away a $50 dollar gift certificate to the Duluth Trading Company. Just in time for the holidays.  Thanks to those of you who posted comments regarding the article the air heads over at the Gothamist posted. This week’s articles again prove why it’s important to support the EESF! Everyone have a great Thanksgiving and extended four day weekend. Talk to you all next week.
