Bye Bye Summer 2012
With record heat, record drought, persistently high unemployment but a rising stock market, the Summer of 2012 played like 1936 all over again,. This time, though gasoline wasn't selling for a nickle per gallon.
On the plus side, housing prices looked as if they might be starting to recover, maybe a little, and retail sales rose somewhat late in the season. Really. What's not to celebrate?
