The Brooklyn Based has a nice little interview up today with Jessica Stockton Bagnulo, the current events and publicity coordinator at McNally Jackson Books and last year's winner of the Brooklyn Business Library's PowerUp! Business Plan Competition. She's getting ready to open an as-yet-unnamed bookstore in Fort Greene, and might be the first person who isn't Warren Buffet who seems genuinely upbeat about why this current economy could actually be a good time to invest -- particularly, in an indie bookstore:

There's a bit of folk wisdom that says "books and booze" are what sell in bad times — those are the luxuries that people can afford, and that give the most bang for the buck. So I think the bookstores and bars of Brooklyn will be just fine.
Keep up with Bagnulo's progress on her blog, A Bookstore in Brooklyn.
