A Buyer's Market in People

December 14, 2008 – Comments (3)

A buyer's market.  It's what we all hope for, at least when we are buying.  We hope that houses will be plentiful so that we can buy a bit more house for our money, whether we need it or not - a McMansion on a rancher budget.  A 2009 car from the auto dealer instead of the 2008 because the luxury car has low gas mileage.  Gas prices will go down, we reason, but we will still have the deal.  [more]

We have a number of shining personalities in business, media, and govenment - especially government that would truly match beautifully with this song. I am taking suggestions. Who deserves this song and why (or forget the why)? Who matches to our theme like bacon to eggs? Courtesy of an old Fred Astaire movie (drum roll)    [more]
