Another year older...

... and further away from retirement. Thanks W.

The post-9/11 market swoon and the George Bush recession took a couple of years off the retirement account. It was unpleasant enough looking at the monthly account statement before today, This latest go-round, the result of tightening credit following the "irrational exuberance" of subprime loans is beginning to look like another year shot to hell.

And what is Fearless Leader's response to all of this? Cut business taxes and try to jawbone the markets into submission.

Yeah, and Alberto Gonzales is an honorable man.

It would be laughable if I didn't see those retirement years slipping farther and farther away. But I guess I'll always have Social Security.
