The next bubble?

Blogging isn’t easy. According to a 2008 survey, only 7.4 million out of the 133 million blogs had been updated in the past 120 days. That translates to 95 percent of blogs being essentially abandoned along the roadside of the information highway.

Younger e-humor: I'm just tweeting to tell you I blogged.

A soon-to-be-busted Chrysler dealer across the Hudson River from New York City faulted the manufacturer for pressuring him to sell more pickup trucks: "How many Dodge pickups can I sell in Jersey City? It's not Waco, Texas."

The next bubble? Many fear it might be higher education. These days, it costs $1,000 a week to send your kid to college. With loans harder to get, soon only the rich can afford tuition, rent, food, books and over-draft protection.

Bumper sticker:
“When religion ruled the world, it was called the Dark Ages”

Its a bubble, but is about to burst, I suspect.

The new bubble that the Government and the Federal Reserve seem to be blowing up is in stocks and commodities.

How much will it cost to recover from that one when it bursts?

One bubble to the next seems to have been policy for over 30 years.

Those auto guys really don't seem to have a finger on what and where to provide cars. One hopes these moves help but I have my doubts. Amen on the religion thing. Bill
