Subprime Mortgage Debacle: How did it happen?

All is explained in this slideshow. Despite the craptastic art, I'm told this is a reasonably accurate account of what happened. Not that it's a big surprise. Everyone got greedy, then everyone got burned. Nothing new there.

Cold Creek

I caught this image from a bridge in Breckenridge. I just love the giant, fluffy pillows of snow and the texture on the sides of them.


All the fortune cookies I've ever gotten were fairly general. "You will have financial success", "A new person will enter your life soon", "The bill will be larger than you expected", that sort of thing.

But last night's fortune said "You will inherit a gold mine in Africa". That fortune writer must've had a really good crystal ball!

Anybody else get a really specific or just plain strange fortune?
