Congratulations on your first grandchild! Grandkids are soooo much better and much more fun than the kids were when we were younger! I have always told my kids that if I could have been a grandparent before I was a parent (I know, I know...not logical or possible!), I would have made a much better parent! Now you can spoil the grandchild, and enjoy every minute of it! But honestly, I agree that you would make a great Sec of the Treasury!

I'm glad for you, Colleen. My thirty-something bairns are lacking way, way behind.
First, I'm a grandfather for the first time, and it's an amazing blessing.

The country my granddaughter has come into is at a very dangerous point. The economy is teetering, but Main Street is being told it's all okay. What's problematic is the rapid decline in the last year. That unemployment rate number on Friday was a total farce, but even if it was completely honest, 7.8% is way too high for an economy that supposedly turned the corner a long time ago.

The number doesn't jibe, with an economy growing at 1.3%. The only honest aspect of the report...
