Best Headline I Read Today
"Brother, Can You Spare Me the Comparisons" in the print edition of this Flint Journal article about the comparisons of today to the Great Depression.
The subtitle of the article was good, too: "For Survivors of Great Depression, Today's Troubles Seem Puny."
Great opening: To those who lived through the Great Depression -- people now in their 80s and 90s -- today's economic conditions don't come close to rivaling the distress of the Great Depression."When I see that on the TV, I say to myself, 'You don't know a thing,'" said Flint resident Peggie Chisolm, 92, laughing.
Prediction: Great Depression II will be as big of a non-event as Y2K, or maybe even a bigger non-event.
