Walter's Predictions for the New Year

Walter in his infinite wisdom has arrived at two different scenarios for what could occur during 2011:

1) We will begin to see unemployment numbers improving which will be the hallmark of us beginning out climb out of the recession.  These numbers will not be back to their pre-recession rate but there will be an improvement.

2)  Due to the Federal Reserve Printing money, we will see a large climb in the inflation rate, without a rise in personal incomes - this will lead us into a Carter era inflation and which will further damage the economy and lead us back into another recessional dip with further layoffs.

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots - so far, the universe is winning."

Bakery Robbery

My cousin was behind the bakery's cash register one morning when a gunman burst in and demanded all the cash.

As she nervously handed over the money, she noticed the rolls of coins in the back of the register.

"Do you want the rolls too?" she asked.

"No," said the robber, waving his gun. "Just the money."
