Late Breaking News — U.S. in a recession
“– The U.S. entered a recession in December 2007, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research.” –CNN email update, December 1, 2008.
Now, I realize the newscasters can’s officially use the word “recession” until the economists see the trends over time and tell us where we are. But, it sort of cracks me up to be coming is as late breaking news update a year later.
Does this speak spiritually to anyone? It does to me. Sometimes things sneak up on us, but we know they are there. We may just not know officially what to call them yet.
