I’ve been desperately trying to figure out a way to work this story into the blog. It’s about a drunk, Swedish elk getting stuck in an apple tree. How’s this:
The elk is the American economy after a stimulus binge, and the broken apple tree is the depression we’re stuck in. (Yes, I know we don’t meet the official economic definition of depression but come on — we’ve had over 10% unemployment in California for at least two years now. What else would you call it? France?).
Unfortunately, it will be a lot harder to pull the American economy out than to get a Swedish elk from an apple tree.
