Marx Madness

I hope everyone's doing OK with their NCAA hoops grids. Here's another pool to get in on to help get your mind off the downward vortex once known as the US economy.

With the new CBO report on the Obama-deficit shattering the multi-trillion dollar mark, all you have to do is guess the date on which the first news story appears using the word "quadrillion" to quantify or project future spending or deficit levels under this administration, and win a nifty prize.

I'll take July 4, 2010, for sentimental reasons.

Though, perhaps I am being too optimistic in assuming the Republic will survive that long, given our current pace toward bankruptcy and dissolution.
