now that's hitting below the belt

I could handle the concept of the US having only the big-two automakers. I could handle the idea that some stockbrokers were out of work. I could handle the idea of bailing out banks.

BUT this -- this is hitting below the belt! Archway Cookies went belly up. I cannot believe how personally I am taking this. No one bailed out Archway. I *loved* those cookies. The apple filled ones, especially.

and no, I am not joking. The idea of a world without Archway hits me much more deeply than a world without GM or AIG....

Political issues are always brought home when they become personal!

Below the belt, indeed -- more like around my hips and thighs... sigh. I loved their windmill cookies -- great with tea in the winter. This news makes me much sadder than the news from Detroit.
