Where my thoughts are
Via nihilistic_kid, this excellent comment by Jordan Flaherty of Left Turn (for anyone who’s missed it).
Via lafinjack, US govt to hire 3 luxury cruisers from a company called Carnival as temporary accommodation for homeless for a period of six months. I guess there’s a logic to it: when the world becomes a floating world, start floating. Oddly, though, the article ends with this comment: Carnival shares closed down 28 cents Friday to $48.24 on the New York Stock Exchange.
Other useful links at ashamel‘s place. benpeek gives a worthy definition of being poor here. And I also appreciate comments being made by Justine (larbalestier) here and coode_street here.
I also note how much of my info comes direct from big media outlets now (ie. none). Thank goodness for all of you.
