Back Bay Grill offers a reassuring sense of stability in this period of deep uncertainty for both state and nation. Recession looms, and when McCain wins his war on earmarks the casualties will be all those nice government projects that Susan Collins has been bragging about. Pretty girls like the one in Collins’s commercials will surely get diabetes then, even if corn syrup costs more. But then Palin’s promised war with Russia might help the economy here in Maine, where we so effectively cobble together the military’s machinery of death. Born in the arms race of the 1980s, Back Bay Grill might be the perfect place to toast the possibilities of the new era.
