The AP had to redact a bit of that hangin' story.   Seems they guy might not have been hanging and might not have had "Fed" written on his chest....

Here is the original story..
http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20090923/NEWS01/909230426/1008/NEWS01/AP%2Bsource%2B%2BCensus%2Bworker%2Bhanged%2Bwith%2B%E2%80%98fed%2B%2Bon%2Bbody

I find it interesting they drudged up "Tea Parties" and the Oklahoma city bombing in the same article..  Makes you think they are trying to create some news here.

My guess is that he ran across a meth lab or grow house and that was the end of him... Very sad..

Chasfield, I guess your double dip recession is the same as my other shoe falling, isn't it?  I wonder though about the 'recession part.  Is it to be more than that? 

I'm lining up my ducks to start investing when the shoe falls.  Maybe this is crazy, but I'm in the process of opening an account and delving into stocks that may make some sense.  I won't, however, go along with the trends, but maybe sort of against them.

A bit of fun and excitement maybe. :)

I don't know about a second wave of trouble in the financial system but some kind of delayed fall out in public sector jobs seems more than likely and we already have huge unemployment.

The private sector took the first hit as the froth of weakly rooted businesses were blown away. Meanwhile the public sector and financial infrastructure companies have saved themselves with a sticking plaster of borrowing. But what next?
