A Good Reminder

That even in tough economic times, there are always winners. The beauty of capitalism is the opportunity to profit by providing things people need, better and cheaper than anyone else. It's a beautiful thing. Which is why we should be incredibly suspicious of calls for the government to save companies that haven't produced a product people actually want to buy for nearly a generation.

.... things people need.

Except that I NEEDED lids for my canning jars yesterday, and Wal-Mart has decided that I can't have any because the canning season is "over."

But yes, I agree with you. I couldn't believe the calls for bailing out Detroit. Where will it end?
