Fine and dandy.
But what is next on the horizon?
What is next, wheather in this cycle, the next, or the one after that makes anything we have seen in our lifetime seem petty.
Next are food shortages.
And when the shortage occurs, a panic follows and all of the food is swept from the store's shelves.
Now after 3 or 4 days of returning home empty handed to one's family; what do you suppose is on ones mind?
Animal rights? Global warming? Spotted owls?
Gun control?
When we get to that next hurtle, and it may bee sooner than later; life will get right down to the A B Cs.
But hold up! We're not there yet.
We still have time.
So with short precious time left; what are we thinking about today for our future?
Just remember that we are all friends for now. We can still return to sanity and get a leg up.
But when it hits, it's each for their own.
Sorry that conditions won't permit me to tell you that I told you so at that time.

Brian, It makes sense to me. I'm going to start stocking up on some heavy-duty cardboard and scouting out some Bridges !!!

After just reading Frank Rich in the NYTimes, I needed a good laugh. Thanks :)

Although (thinking of Harry's post above) my husband has been reading the S.M. Stirling series that starts with 'Dies the Fire' and is about what happens to people in the Willamette Valley when technology is destroyed... Should I give myself something new to worry about? *s*

You have stumbled on to an implicit truth, that cash is trash and may be worth next to nuthin' sometime in the future. The web is rich with good information on the subject starting with Chris Martinson's Crash Course http://www.chrismartenson.com/crashcourse Amazingly astute boggers like James Kunstler http://jameshowardkunstler.typepad.com/clusterfuck_nation/ and Ilargi http://theautomaticearth.blogspot.com
There are the survivalists http://www.survivalblog.com/
and the goldbugs http://www.goldseek.com/
Economic prophets like Peter Schiff http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Schiff and Richard Maybury http://richardmaybury.com/bulletin-041904.html
The consensus is that we are headed for difficult times, a crisis a predicted by the cycles of history detailed in The Fourth Turning http://www.amazon.com/Fourth-Turning-William-Strauss/dp/0767900464/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1228783656&sr=8-1 What happens when our cash is worthless? Perhaps something better than we have right now. http://www.realitysandwich.com/money_and_crisis_civilization
