I could talk about the 3/4 of a million people laid off this month, or the violent protests in London's financial district, or the modern Hoovervilles which (surprise, surprise!) weren't caused by the recession but by seasonal economies and holes in the Californian healthcare system...but there's only so much even I can take.
So, have some lucite in the sky with diamonds.
(It's a planet fetus! :D)
Some more good news, just in: apparently they've successfully averted New Orleans-style flooding in Fargo, North Dakota. This is what happens when FEMA actually does its job...with a little help from above. :]
