Sometimes Reading The News Blows

Posted in Uncategorized by msdisdain on September 16, 2008

News in Brief.

There was a woman in the eighth floor bathroom obsessed with the sound of her half-cut leopard print stilettos today.  She was very tall.  Half her head stuck up above the stall door. That’s news.  Sometimes the real deal isn’t so fun to read.

There are countries, now, not just people saying things like “Oh no, sorry, it’s a secret” only the secrets involve nuclear warfare and word has it that the secret’s purveyor is coincidentally giving guns to the bad guys.

I have received word that it might be a good idea to start putting money under your mattress.  The Lehman Brothers, doing business since before the civil war, just filed for the largest bankrupcy in oh, say, history. Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae had too many mortgages in their hand, now, under government control. Analysts calling it the next Depression.  Insurance companies like AIG are about to go broke.  In the tens of billions. Cut off to the hot commodity which is “the lifeblood of business and consumer spending”:  credit. This is only the edge of a steep cliff upon which the u.s. financial economy is sitting with an epic ride in sight and high incidence of crash and burn.  Having money in your hand might just well be better than looking at that credit card when it swipes and saying to yourself, “Oh look, there went money I dont have.”  That nondescript bank may not have the money either.

To all the ladies out there with style, grace and babies:  breast feed as long as you can and avoid that powerded milk in that cute pink container made in china.  Why?  Because your baby might be the next among 6,200 poisoned with plastics.  Why did the culprits stick melamine in the powder?  Because it made it appear healthier than it actually is.  Twisted.
