Always be prepared...

It feels pretty fragile to me.

Did you read Bob Herbert's column in yesterdays's NYTimes, "American Cities and the Great Divide"? He talks about how the vast, growing gap between NY's richest and poorest residents. "You want a gilded age? This is it. The elite of the Roaring Twenties would be stunned by the wealth of the current era."
Beware of comparisons to the Roaring 20's...

It's almost like Monopoly money it seems so surreal.

(By the way, I tagged you for a meme if you so choose.)

And there was an article in the WSJ today, that said that the poor is getting richer -- better social systems, etc. But, is it an improved quality of life?
