Dave Barry New Year's Laugh
I came across Dave Barry in my reading list this morning and it was great for a laugh,
On the economic front, the dollar continued to lose value against all major foreign currencies and most brands of bathroom tissue. There was a major collapse in the credit market, caused by the fact that for most of this decade, every other radio commercial has been some guy selling mortgages to people who clearly should not have mortgages. ("No credit? No job? On death row? No problem!") It got so bad that you couldn't let your dog run loose because it would come home with a mortgage. The subprime mortgage fiasco resulted in huge stock market losses, and the executives responsible, under the harsh rules of Wall Street justice, were forced to accept lucrative retirement packages.
Have a Happy New Year everyone.
I have hopefully added two pictures my sister sent me from beautiful Whistler, BC, site of the 2010 winter olympics. (I've actually taught kids web pages so why I fight so hard with inserting pictures on this site is beyond me...)
