Quote of The Week

"Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness."
-James Thurber

An appropriate quote for the times, I think. Maybe if everyone had been a little more aware for the last decade or so the economy wouldn't be in the mess it's in now.

Very true, VL. I would only add it would be nice if people read a little history. This is not like the Great Depression. There are too many of us watching our big screen plasma TV's listening to jerks in the media telling us we're doomed - and believing it. My folks told me in detail about the Great Depression, and there is a wealth of news clips and information on the Internet about it. What we have today ain't even close. :)

I agree with you, Bernard, the media loves to make it sound so awful. Sure there's a lot of people out of work, but there are a lot more still working. Most people haven't changed the way they live hardly at all. Clearly NOT equivalent to the Great Depression, or anywhere near it.
