Something will certainly happen. It just won't be what we anticipate. At times like this I reflect on the brouhaha cum fizzle that was Y2K. I won't say that the "fiscal cliff" is like Y2K but I'm thinking that there's been enough attention paid to the catchphrase "fiscal cliff" that, whatever happens, it'll be forgotten outside some footnotes. The law of unintended consequences is germane.


In times like these it is helpful to remember that there have always been times like these. -- Paul Harvey, American radio broadcaster
