Week in Review

From Domestic Debates to Foreign Downgrades…

Veep Debate

Polls show that Americans are split 50/50 as to who won last night’s Vice-Presidential debate.  But I think we can all agree that the spirited discussion between Biden and Ryan is what a good debate is all about!  As far as commentator Martha Raddatz goes, did we misunderstand or did she actually comment in her intro on how long it took her to get ready (ie – dressed and coiffed) for her role as moderator?

Spain Debt Downgrade

If you’ve been bummed about your worsening credit score, at least you know you’re not alone.  In fact, the country of Spain’s credit rating just got cut – again. S & P lowered their rating on Spanish debt to BBB – minus status – just one notch about JUNK. For more on why YOU SHOULD care about the worsening European debt crisis, check out our article!

 Postal Increase

The beleaguered U.S. Postal Service announced that rates will be increasing – up a penny to 46 cents per stamp starting Jan 27, 2013.  And who knew that this dinosaur of an agency could be full of new surprises… They also announced a new Global forever stamp, allowing you to mail anywhere in the world for $1.10.  We recommend holding off on these if you mail mainly to Canada or Mexico – where is costs 85 cents to mail a letter…

Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gifts

Looking for a little escapism in this crappy economy – or at least a good OMG laugh…  Look no further than your mail box (thank you, US Postal Service!) or this link to the Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift Guide!  Our favorite?  The $100,000 Versailles-inspired HEN HOUSE (yes, a chicken coop) – you have to see it to believe it.

    On the VP debate thing, I’m curious to know whom your audience thought was more Presidential material?
    Also, as VP Biden pointed out, why are we all concerned about Iran getting closer to Nuclear Bomb capability? He clearly stated they had no way of delivering one, and it was too far into the future to concern ourselves about. Is this correct?

    You’re correct Louie.

Any Thoughts?
