    The Dow Jones Fedora Index




    Advertisements
    Has anyone else noticed a correlation between uncertain financial times and the drop of newly listed vintage fedoras on ebay? Inflation jitters, Iran's rumblings about nukes and continued job losses to overseas production have made the Dow Jones Fedora Index tumble. The irony, of course is, many of these same unlisted fedoras were worn during the great Depression. Hmm... Somebody call Lou Dobbs.

    No, he'd just rant & rail against all those south of the border sombreros, masquerading as fedoras, flooding our shores & sitting upon the heads of unsuspecting 'mericans...
    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
    Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness,
    for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children."
