Many of my friends and acquaintances have asked me lately how I was so sure as long as a year ago, and especially two months ago, that there would be a financial meltdown. To be fair, they’ve only asked me because I’ve been bragging about my prowess on this and other topics including why the I-35W Bridge collapsed and what the RNC would bring our town. Yes, I shoved my success in their face, so a few responded. I would like to have a steady gig in this field, so please excuse my arrogance. Besides, I know I wasn’t 100% right (at least so far).
