Mort Zuckerman from U.S. News and World Report doesn't have a lot of faith in the strength of our economy. He depicts our state as "the worst potential financial crisis since the Depression." Not exactly rosy. Of course, Pat Buchanan has to bluster about (that's his job, right? Professional blusterer), but host John McLaughlin asks the line that many of my friends in the finance industry have been asking themselves: "Should we open the window and go to the ledge now?"
