I’m at the Archery Trade Association Show in Louisville, sitting on the floor against the back wall of the Kentucky Exhibition Center. There are about 100 people in line next to me waiting to buy $5 hamburgers.
At times like this, the economy seems fine.
The show is the annual gathering of the archery industry. Manufacturers are here to unveil the latest and greatest and then write orders with dealers. Dealers are here to plan their stock for the year. Writers are here looking for stories, and it seems like every Joe Bob with a video camera is here promoting his new television show.
