Sure, all sorts of terrible things are happening with the economy. The drumbeat of disaster is picking up its tempo. Soon, we'll be living off generic ramen and dead raccoons. Mad Max will be regarded as a sort of prescient documentary.
BUT, this news has made it all worthwhile:
Whenever you need to seek out a silver lining, remember this: when the economy's Elevator to Hell comes loose of its moorings and plunges us straight to Hooverville...at least we won't have to listen to crappy music on the way down.
Oh, and that thing where you jump just as the elevator crashes, so you don't die? A total myth.
