Crazy economic times…

You know we are living in some crazy economic times when…

An oil executive suggests that the Govenor of Georgia cancel the upcoming football game between the #3 ranked University of Georgia Bulldogs and some team from Alabama (actually the #8 ranked University of Alabama) in order to save gas.  Read about it here.  The Govenor, Sonny Perdue, who happens to be an alumnus of the University of Georgia called the idea ridiculous.  If a college football game in the South between two ranked teams gets canceled to conserve gas, well, then we truly might be in trouble.

For those who are looking for some help in understanding these uncertain times, there are some resources here. (HT:  Discerning the Times)  I found the episode on This American Life (“The Giant Pool of Money”) to be incredibly helpful.  I listened to it on our recent trip to Georgia in August.
