Misleading headline of the day

March retail sales unexpectedly rise 0.2 percent
Basically, gas got so expensive in March, that it wiped out outweighed (and probably even caused, to some extent) falling sales in the rest of the economy. We bought less stuff, but it cost us more to do it.

Hey, maybe these can be recycled!

    I was a grade-schooler during the Ford administration, and I remember asking my parents, "why can't everyone just agree not to raise prices?" We were in the drive-through line at the old Northwestern Bank at the time. Picking up our weekly package of china that we got as a premium for shopping there. I think that my aunt still has some of those old blue and white Dutch-patterned pieces. Chipped, maybe, but still around.
