I apologize for my lack of attention to this blog over the past week, but I’ve been extremely busy. MD and I left one conference weekend before last, came home for a day, and left for another conference, from which we just got home last night. During the one day we were home, we were running errands and had the clutch go out on our car in exactly the same place it went out two years ago. We were pulling off the exit from the freeway we always use when the clutch pedal went to the floor. We pulled to the side of the off ramp unable to move and sat waiting for help. We got the car safely to the shop and got home, but it took a few hours out of an already busy day. So, as Bob Cratchit said to Scrooge, I’ve been behind my time since it seems. If you’ve had a comment languishing in awaiting moderation purgatory, mea culpa. There are about 30, and I’ll try to get them all dealt with within the next 24 hours. By tomorrow I should be back on my regular schedule.
I planned to put up a regular medical/nutritional post today, but in view of the financial crisis, I figured I would instead put up this video that I saw earlier this year, months before the financial crisis exploded. These comedians were very prescient. I find it interesting that they discuss Bear Stearns by name long before Bear Stearns bought the farm. I’ve always found it amazing that comedy (including political cartoons) seems to be able to encapsulate a situation and present it more understandably than an in depth investigative report.
See what you think. I’ll be happy to post all comments.
