Happy Tuesday to you all. This is day two of my daughter being home sick with something like the flu. She’s better today but I kept her home just in case. Stay healthy, people.

Hard to believe that today marks the 11th anniversary of 911. I had dropped off my oldest for Kindergarten and learned about the first plane hitting the tower when I dropped my youngest son off at daycare. I got to the office in time to see the second plane hit the other tower. I had a pit in my stomach that entire day.
What a sad day for America.

10. Finally, this article, The Legacy of the Clinton Bubble, is old (and long) but it’s interesting in a couple of respects: 1) they are left-leaning (at least what I can tell from the site’s description) and 2) they pretty much say what I’ve been saying all along.
If you have something you want me to link to in a future roundup, send it to me (JLP – at – AllFinancialMatters – dot – com) and I’ll try to include it if I like it.
