Hoyazo can write about bonus payments, and screwed up companies, and why the economy is bad. His financial blog is pretty good and explains things very well. The real impact of the economy does not hit us until it becomes personal though. Until we see a few of our good friends out of work and wish we could help them. When we see people we know with cut back hours and struggling to get things going. When our own families lose income. As much of a ranting prick as I can be I really wish I could pick all my friends up and bring them to Waffles fairy tale land where we could all live happily every after exploiting the Umpa Doompa guys. I guess I am just saying I wish you all the best.
