Editor’s note: The following is a reader comment on the Sept. 19 Inman News column, "Mark this day: The worst is over."

"One candidate took a lot of grief from his opponents this week and these developments certainly didn’t help. You seem to be saying (in a different way) what he has said — that our economy is fundamentally sound. I happen to agree, as do many others. The phenomenon of "consumer confidence" is the only thing keeping our economy from rebounding and lurching forward. I happen to believe that as soon as the presidential election is over (regardless of who wins), our economic recovery will be swift and unprecedented. We need to consider our own optimism for just a moment. It holds the key to our future and the ability to lift us from even our deepest funk."
–Shannon Ziccardi
