Indeed.

One or two nuggets of California Dreaming though:

What is unbelievable in this country is that this storm is brewing up & will engulf the whole country (high unemployment, collapse of public education, failing states) at a time when magazines like Kiplingers Personal Finance and Business Week etc. are announcing that the recession is over and all is sunny ahead. Disraeli's two nations..
