Calvin And Hobbes
My refrigerator gave out this week - just when it suddenly warmed up (I dragged the Chief to an unknown secluded northern locale from which he cannot escape in order to ensure he would actually attend his medical appointments.) Anyway, ice is on my mind.
C&H was one of my favorite cartoons.
But it means I'll have to visit Mish's blog twice for depressing economic news.
In the big picture, who will remember what happens today, 10 years from now. 100 years it will not rate a sentence in a history book. 1000 years The USA will be like the Roman Empire, something that history students will dread reading about.
Vader, all our dramas usually don't add up to even a line in the history books. This meltdown will actually get into the history books, but probably not as more than a paragraph - if we're lucky. It's odd, but all the good times in history are the stuff that never gets recorded. No news is good news.
