An Era of Anxiety
We are a stressed people. I just drove home listening to Fresh Air on NPR. The financial expert talking to Teri Gross was discussing the takeover of AIG by the feds. Basically something like this has never happened before, EVER. And the only reason they did it is because there is a REAL concern that we are teetering on the verge of a depression. Not a recession, a depression. Never before in my life until recently did I give daily thanks that I have a job. Maybe soon that won't even be enough. I don't even want to go into what could happen if Obama doesn't win - that is something I worry about daily. We are at the breaking point on so many levels, not just the economy. We need a change, a REAL change, and we needed it yesterday.
