Bare Minimum Wage

When adjusted for inflation, a person making minimum wage in 1968 had more spending authority than a person making minimum wage now.

A sobering graph:

A recession hurts those who can least afford it. Production is up while earnings are down. At least things aren’t as bad as they were in 2006, right? Right?


UFO Alert

They must be looking for something, these flying, floating, hovering lights.

There have been tons of sightings lately. Gawker reports on a sighting in Texas a week after almost identical lights danced over Manhattan.

China has reports, the UK has some reports.

Could it be that all these are just weather or wedding balloons? Are they all military tech testing?

Maybe, but they look like Aliens.
