When you're in the middle of something, it's hard to brand it. Even though each night on the broadcast we talk about the current "financial crisis", we know it will someday be called SOMETHING. Remember, World War One wasn't known as the "first" World War when it was underway. Ironically, it was "the war to end all wars..." until we learned there would be another. The Depression was called a "depression" only after it was clear to all. "The Troubles" might be fitting, except for its past use to describe the awful decades of violence in Northern Ireland (and elsewhere) which claimed close to 3,500 names. Sadly, we'll come up with something to call it, soon enough...just as soon as we figure out what it is, exactly.
I hope you had a good weekend, and I hope you can join us tonight.
