We love the sign outside the Rogan store on Bowery and Bond. We love its crypic wisdom. We love that it changes constantly. We love its weird little "r"s. As such, we're going to follow it. Obsessively.
Today, Rogan gets political, tossing a bit of '80s economic theory our way. (Roganomics, you might call it.) A transcription, since it's a little hard to read: "Is it finished/Are we through/Did it trickle down to you? If so buy Rogan!" The sign sounds skeptical up until that last bit, so we're feeling some mixed messages here.
