The Ride Is Over

So; the dream-world of easy money seems to be ending.

No matter how hard one tries to believe that it is a reality, a dream remains a dream.
Now we all must pay, or so we are told. To those of us watching our retirement investments diminishing by $10,000 a day, it is fast becoming a nightmare. It may bounce back, it may not. When Enron collapsed there was much tut-tutting among the money merchants. Nothing has changed; we repeat the cycle over and over with the intervals becoming more frequent and more severe. Let us not despair, at least not yet. Life will go on, we will adapt, and maybe, just maybe, things will change. In the words of the spoken recitation from the old standard I Cried for You...
...Life is just an idiot's delight
And as I speed through the dark night
Into the abyss of oblivion
I can only say thanks!
Thanks for the memories...

Not despair? You're asking an awful lot of the world.

Lets put them all on prozac...
