Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
Meet Erin Evenson
Erin Evenson is a 35-year-old, anxiety-ridden liberal living in Bay Ridge. The Midwestern daughter of a bohemian textile artist mother and a reformed conservative gun-toting Norwegian father, Erin was thoroughly confused in her youth and became an Independent, vegan, punk, Brit- and power-pop-adoring Hindu, only to realize in adulthood that she is truly a left-leaning, bacon-worshipping agnostic (who still adores punk, Brit- and power-pop). She believes that the ghosts of Charles Kuralt, Bukowski and Parker, Jr. speak to her in her dreams, and, though it pains her to admit, was excited to receive her IRS economic stimulus payment notice.
