    As someone who attends county fairs, state fairs, and the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival (http://www.sheepandwool.com/), I adore pigs and sheep. Pigs are beautiful and smart. Sheep are sweet-natured and calm. However, I suspect that you, Mike, would most enjoy goats, who are smart, independent, and serene, for the most part. Also – cashmere!

    Personally, I'm more interested in stories like the one about Lehman Bros. declaring bankruptcy today after being around for 158 years, sending shockwaves through global markets with the US banking system continuing on life support as one of the largest and most extensive government bailouts in US financial history continues.But that's just me.

      It's not an either/or, but I get your point… and it's not just you.The Lehman bankruptcy is only half of today's big banking story. The other half is the sale of Merril Lynch to Bank of America. Qualifying as part of the story: both AIG and Washington Mutual are on the brink, and if J.P. Morgan buys the latter we'll have taken another giant step towards an America where three banks control the nation. Actually, we're virtually there anyway.And it was reported book sales took another dive, down 7.4%, although it's possible we can blame Harry Potter for that. Let's see how long Borders hangs in there.Sigh. Remember when "brother, can you spare a dime" meant if you got lucky you could use that dime to buy a comic book?

        Yeah, I read that too but those firms are still barely alive at least. No, it's not either/or but rather, which stories should people be focusing their time and energy on versus pulling their hair out that something is even a story at all, which I think we definitely agree on.I guess sooner or later the book industry had to come down from its Harry Potter high although any future projects from Rowling will still be a huge draw.And I can remember when a dollar could get you a comic and a dime was a downpayment;)
