There are some disturbing news articles out there today (and I never even left the Yahoo main page). The first would be this one Iceland Close to National Bankruptcy The country Iceland. Hm, now that may not be a big place but the impact on Europe would be significant.
Here’s another one that’s fun Russia’s Exchange Closes
Global Stock Markets Plunge Anyone else getting all warm and fuzzy yet? This is seriously freaking me out. I was feeling really happy we weren’t in the US right now but the crisis is now into every country. There was also the really upbeat tagline yesterday that a man worried over the financial crisis killed himself and his entire family. I didn’t read the article for obvious reasons. What on earth is going on? Is anyone else scared about all of this?
But of course then we have this great news – Nepal Appoints Three Year Old Girl as Living Goddess – so why worry right? It’s a bit horrifying all on its own. She can look forward to a great life of having to live by herself in the temple till puberty and then since it’s unlucky to marry a former goddess, a lifetime of being alone. Oh, sign me up for that!
Yep, the news stinks today.
