Well, it was an abbreviated business week for all but retailers. My kids had the whole week off – I used to have to go to school through Wednesday of Thanksgiving week when I was a kid (and yes, I walked uphill both ways through the snow in southern California, too). I’ll be amazed if mine make it to college – how do they learn anything if they’re in the classroom 10 days out of 30?
Apparently, other kids have faced the same dilemma and decided to cheat to excel. Nice. This is my fave line –
“What is the social cost of that — not to mention the implication for the next generation of mortgage brokers?”
At first I rolled my eyes when I read that Washington state was suing the federal government over clean-up at Hanford. But when I learned more about the repeated delays and therefore loads of money and potentially dangerous situations that have resulted from them, I’m all for it. Go McKenna! Go Gregoire! Make ’em accountable!
I don’t necessarily agree with the angle that the author took in passing on this info about giving. But it’s probably true. I remember writing something in my diary when I was a teenager – something about growing up to marry a guy who was really attractive, but slightly dangerous, and he had a redeeming characteristic – like he donated a lot to charity! In any case, I thought it was a timely reminder that if we CAN give, we should, since what goes around, comes around.
And that’s it -have a great week!
