Welcome to 2009!
2008 was a hell of a year, wasn't it?
But, we must move on - and like the song says "let auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind".
Yes, of course. With a few small exceptions:
the Wall St. bailout funding exorbitant severance packages and the 50 year inflation protected bonds our kids and grandkids will cover to pay for them
- the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan
- the War on Terror(TM)
- the auto industry bankruptcies
- the Illinois governor
- The Great Depression II
- The Great Wealth Transfer Boondoggle
- China in Africa
...and the beat goes on.
My New Years Resolution is to get back into this blogging game and write about them and more!
