Slow news day gotcha down? Go Shopping!
Today is the day after Thanksgiving. The only news out there will be about the
idiots consumers that take part in the craziness known as Black Friday.
I have done it once in my life and vowed never to do it again. I didn’t even get what I went there for.
Unless you love being crammed into stores like sardines in a can or college students in a Volkswagen, you will not be participating either.
But Wait!! There is a Black Friday in the real world. There is this news about Dubai. It’s not looking good for those sheiks apparently. The world’s stock markets took a huge shit today on the news that Dubai’s financial health is in the crapper. From the CNN linky:
The problems Friday stem from Dubai World, the finance arm of Dubai, which is considering a postponement of payments on nearly $60 billion in debt. The debt was used to fuel a construction boom over the last few years, including its palm-tree shaped island projects, but the Middle East nation was hit hard by a real estate crunch.
Oh my…that is nasty indeed! They won’t be buying very many Maybachs then, will they? tsk…tsk..tsk. ;>)
