"Tall blond Nordic-looking girls in black suede leather boots," Peggy Noonan? Nice attention to detail. This kind of makes me more interested in the direction that America is heading, to be honest. Noonan also observes such amazing things as a hair salon where "everyone spoke Chinese, including a 5- or 6-year-old Asian girl so proud of her new bangs." Imagine that! A young girl who could speak Chinese! What would Noonan do if she ever went to China? Be pretty impressed, I'd imagine. Noonan also notices that everyone from"Asian kids" to "teenage Arab girls" are using iPhones. She doesn't explicity say "très Brooklyn" but you know she's thinking it. No, what Noonan does say is this modest statement: "The entire political future of America is on this street."
Wow. That's a big statement, Peggy Noonan. Explain yourself, please! Well, you see, Noonan noticed that all around her were people, ordinary people, "Everyone different, everyone getting along, everyone feeling free to be who they are but everyone also—you could just kind of see it—feeling free to be different from who they are, too."
Different from who they are? How so, Peggy Noonan? Well, "[t]here was a really loud kind of rap group, and I asked who it was because I didn’t get its composition—young black and Hispanic men, a middle-aged white woman." So, basically, Noonan saw the Black-Eyed Peas. And kindly guessed Fergie to be "middle-aged."
