How is the recession hitting you?

Good morning, Netizens…

Cartoonist David Horsey takes a shot at recession, suggesting that the bankers aren’t feeling the impact of the economic downturn nearly so badly as Americans who have lost their jobs due to downsizing and layoffs. Have you been feeling the pinch this Christmas Season?

I simply have to know, because the recession has been hitting our house particularly hard this year, and I am wondering how many others have felt its icy fingers picking their pockets.

Of course, any discussion of the economy brings to mind the television advertisement that we should “shop local”, which features some of Spokane’s retail groups. Despite their heartfelt pleas, in tight economic times don’t you necessarily ignore “shop local” in exchange for “shop cheaply”? Are you looking for the best prices rather than following local vendors?

Of course, some bankers simply don’t care. When they receive a 20 million dollar bonus, they can shop wherever they want, right?
