Bernankeís somber demeanor today before the lawmakers is quietly frightening. I couldnít help but be reminded that the irony of scholastic achievementís reward is liable to become very visible soon.


Sandwich Board Epidemic

Once reserved for derelicts
    In the snow
Ever brandished by fanatics
    End of the world warnings
Recently but a menu
    Cheap eats aplenty
Now carried invisibly
    College grads begging

Thought provoking write.

Punch in this one with that last line. You have a flare for putting the crux at the finish and it stays on the tongue long that way. This image carries many, many zeros after the dollar sign of student loan haunt on that sandwich board. Exceedingly effective. ~~ Diana
