OK, it seems as though our economy is getting worse by the minute. I can’t believe the number of companies going out of business, laying off thousands of workers, and the dismal outlook of the future. I almost hate turning on the radio or watching the news. I remember learning about the Great Depression in history class and hearing stories from my parents and grandparents, but I never thought I would be so close to another depression in my lifetime. I heard today another bailout package is on the way, promising salvation from our current predicament.
