…and a Crappy New Year!

Feeling good about the New Year? Let Jim Kunstler take care of that little problem for you:

For the tiny fraction of people who actually pay attention to real events — those, for instance, who know the difference between Narnia and Kandahar -- the final hours of 2007 leading into the fog-shrouded abyss of 2008 must induce great racking shudders of nausea. Has there ever been a society so exquisitely rigged for implosion? The whole listing, creaking, reeking edifice stands like one of those obsolete Las Vegas pleasure palaces awaiting a mere pulse of electrons to ignite a thousand explosive charges perfectly placed to blow away the structural supports, etc., etc.

Pretty much my thoughts exactly. The good news, however, is that our obesity problems are going to go the same way as Ethiopia's after the collapse.
