As The World Unravels

Spoke in very hushed tones is the impact of the Greatest Financial Crisis to Hit Our Country Since the Great Depression on the as-always dependent-on-the-kindness-of-strangers arts. And yes, daily sad news of our economic downward spiral--this bank closing, this corporation laying off hundreds of people, this Dow Jones somersault or crash--has become the same white noise as casualties in Iraq (never reported). But how will this affect us?

Here's a sad tidbit to give a general indication, from the Argosy Foundation, which is not giving any money out, not any more.

I suspect there will be a lot more to say on this one. Needless to say, in a few years, when those kind souls who usually donate don't feel up to it, who knows where we will all be...
