This one too.

This one's pretty brutal too. Just driving by.

Photojournalism submission.

What do you think of this picture?
I submitted to Minnesota Public Radio Photo Contest as well as Adbusters Magazine. It looks like he is laughing or yelling, but as I was driving by this run-down Mexican in Chihuahua, he was yelling and moaning in Spanish. Strange juxtaposition with the Coca-Cola trucks right behind him.

Eventual economic, political, social and environmental collapse?

Watching the dominoes fall. There's some scary reports, some grim forecasts. Be careful out there, some people kind of wait for this to happen. Whatever is happening.
It's a shakedown, a rupture, a tsunami. 

It's the result of poor lending practices, yeah?

Anybody else have any ideas?

Trying to up the narrative.

I'm listening to a "This American Life" about people who receive scam e-mails, pretend they're a church and decide to scam the person back. Sending e-mails back and forth, making them go to different places in Chad, Africa. Toying with the scam artists, making fake promises about giving them $200,000. To try and find out what is true and what is false, Ira Glass investigated and tried to contact the scam artist being scammed. The type of people that try to steal from a church will say anything to get their money is the argument these people have and they're "pure scum" one of the reverse scammers said. It's program #363 and amazing.

Should probably go to sleep.
