"...sixteen tons, whaddya get, another day older and a-deeper in debt..."

The only thing I've had on the brain today is the economy.

This morning, CNN.com's lead story was "67% of consumers cutting back." Of course I can't find a link to the article anymore. But one of the scariest stats I've ever read was smack in the middle of the article: Three-quarters of people who responded to the poll that was conducted answered "yes" when asked if they've had to cut back on "grocery items, medicine and/or heating their home."

How fucking scary is that?

Almost as scary as this article: How to salvage your retirement.

I'm going to go home and drink some Bushmill's whiskey from my liquor cabinet... while I still have a home and a liquor cabinet to go to...
