We are so screwed

I hadn’t realized how bad the economy was until I saw the front-page headline in the Wall Street Journal — that sober, serious financial paper read by bankers and economists.

Need a Job? Losing Your House? Who Says Hoodoo Can’t Help?
Tough Times Boost Sales of Spider Dust, Spells for Good Fortune, Mojo Powders

There isn’t one word of criticism, not one objection or reservation…the WSJ simply reports this as a “good business” and that “sales are booming”. When the WSJ is promoting dried spiders, goofer dust, and corpse powder…I think we’re in big trouble.
