This post is not as much fun as dirty dishes or guinea fowl; but it's another one where I just can't help gritting my teeth and shaking my head.
Big news? Front page, NYT? Golly, the industry based on pandering to the Wall Street Grand Casino staff, is set to tank; there may be $18 Billion less in "bonuses" this year for them to spend on - you, stuff. There's a cool graph of bonuses- damnedest thing, right after the neo-cons got in, the bonuses started to skyrocket.
Tiny news? So little you can't find it? Suicides- caused by foreclosures. In the "Health" section of ABC news. Way down there.
One suicide. Would you wanna get there are hundreds more, that have already happened? And how many "investigative journalists" are there digging out that story? ? It's nice to know, the mortgage company said they were "devastated".
There are times when I don't like the news writers much.
oh, yeah, and the news in the middle- visible, but barely - 2 more national banks were seized; on Friday; just a bit after the Grand Casino closed for the weekend.
