Plenty Of Nothing
In the throes of the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, the Dow jumped up over 900 points today. What's it all mean? I have no idea. I don't even look at my 401K since I can't touch it anyway until I'm too old to get any enjoyment out of it!
I am no economics expert, but here in NYC, the restaurants are emptier than Sarah Palin's soul and there seem to be less turista's too. A friend of mine in the service industry says that her bar was pretty barren this weekend.
There are definite signs of massive corporate lay-offs in the next few weeks (just in time for the holidays, Ebenezer).
I guess it was a really good time for me to stop drinking! Those $6 pints sure add up.
We're not recovering from this anytime soon, fellow travelers.
