That’s just nonsense!

Mid-week. We'll soon be over the hump and on the downhill slide toward the weekend!

This has been a rough week so far, and it’s still young. The stock market has continued its downward spiral, the Chinese are exporting their toxic waste as toothpaste and children’s toys , there is talk of reinstating the draft, and the president’s “Brain” is packing up and going home.

It seems to be the season for nonsense.

Hey Ed,
Nice post. Your news recap is bang on. It's so sad that in the U.S. and Canada, we've allowed those factory jobs to be exported to China for the benefit of company profits. Those jobs used to be the safety net that kept young people off of social asistance, and allowed them to earn reasonably decent living wages. Now that's gone, so I guess we'll all as taxpayers have to pick up the tab. Anyone with a lick of sense knew that those job manufacturing losses would bite us in the butt, but with these toxic products, it seems to have happened very quickly.

I remember winken, blinken, and nod as a poem my parents would read me when I was young. The musical adaptation of it is rather interesting--I'm guessing the poem came first?

Ken,
Thanks for Rag Mop! It was on my list, but got stricken due to space limits. Thanks for filling the gap.

Dan,
Both Canada and the U.S. have been reduced to not much more than colonies of Chinaand the multi-national corporations. Once they have brought our income and living standards to the level of China's, the manufacturing jobs will return. That's quite a price to pay.

eastrnoregon,
Carly Simon, and sister, Lucy, got the song from the ages old childhood poem.

BTW- When I lived in eastern Washington I spent more than a few weekends panning for gold in the rivers of eastern Oregon. That sure is some pretty country.
