We may have democracy, or we may have wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both. - Justice Louis Brandeis
Trickle-down economics is the first cousin of austerity economics. Austerity is nuts when so many millions are out of work. And as we’ve learned before, trickle-down is a fraud. Nothing ever trickles down. - Robert Reich, "A Story for May Day"
... they go really bad, in a hurry. Later today I am going to a hospital ER for some tests of the extent of the wound in my foot. This is a very recent episode, but initial impressions are not very good. I may be away from blogging for a few days if the hospital admits me. Apologies and thanks to all who have made me a part of your daily reading; I have no choice but to do this. I will show Stella how to post to the blog in case anything of note happens while I am incapacitated. With luck, this, too, shall pass, and I shall not.
