DealBreaker Defends American History

One of DealBreaker editor John Carney’s duties here is to act as a keeper of Wall Street’s memories. He’s under the strange impression that having respect for the history of American finance is useful for writing about it, and doesn't let a day go by without reminding us of what the 80s were like.
But tonight Carney is stepping out from behind the screen to take part in a panel discussion on the broader subject of American history. "Should America Have More Respect for Its History?" is the official topic. Carnage will match words against Kevin Walsh, building preservation advocate and Forgotten-NY editor, L.B. Deyo, Jinx Society co-founder and prophet of the transformative cyborg future. The discussion happens at 8 PM at Lolita Bar, 266 Broome St, at the corner of Allen St. on Manhattan's Lower East Side. Free admission, cash bar, and an air conditioner.
Carney’s told us that he’s tentatively calling his talk “Only The Dead Hand Of The Past Will Set You Free.” Drop by and see him in action.
