I think the economy may be in trouble...

I went to Home Depot for some trifles, and I must have had a dozen or more salespeople greet me or ask to help me. Scary.

It reminded me of the old yarn from the 30's, where the farmer tells his wife that there must really be a depression, because the Saturday Evening Post just blew off the front porch! (For the historically challenged, the Saturday Evening Post was once the most popular American periodical by far. Since it was purely a source of entertainment, rather then news or information, it died soon after television arrived.)
