Well, it’s August 22nd and in case you’ve been under a rock, today is suppose to mark the beginning of Armagedon. No, I haven’t cashed out my savings into hard currency but I did fill up the gas tank at $2.71 per gallon just in case the nut job in Iran says or does something stupid to scare the international oil speculators (who are really to blame).

Meanwhile the Pope is telling us to chill out. Unfortunately, I am one of the 25% of Americans who don’t get vacation time. Thanks Greg. But I guess that’s a good thing; I fear that if I had too much spare time on my hands I would be fretting over the Apocalypse.
