When It All Goes Wrong Again…

The good thing about bad things is that it makes us appreciate the best things.

Like surpluses.

Welcome To The Death Of Authority Or Giving People What They Really Want {previously unpublished}

September 29, 2008

[Unknown to most of you, I write at least 3 posts a week on this blog. I just don’t publish them (for various reasons, usually because they are just not good or the ideas not totally thought out.) But this week I am going to publish some of them Just because I probably will never finish them and you may get something out of them.]

[written sept. 24, 2008]

Like you, I don’t know much about global economics.

But I didn’t need to read page 225 of Taleb’s bestseller “The Black Swan” to know that global banking and the economy were vulnerable to collapse.

20th Century strategies don’t work to solve 21st Century problems.

Welcome to the death of authority.

Nancy Grace And The Importance Of Battlestar Galactica Figures

September 1, 2008

Before I headed back to Gotham I thought I would spend a portion of my Labor day going to an Obama rally here in Detroit.

My cousin and her daughter got me up early and we headed out to Hart’s Plaza. The speech wasn’t scheduled to start till 11am so our 8am arrival seemed early enough.

We stood in the slow moving line for a spot in the park for 4 hours but still ended up having to watch his speech on the Jumbotron set up for those like us who arrived too late get in.

But this post isn’t about that.
