    That’s pretty cool, overall. My dubiousness about some of the economic stuff made me question the rest a bit. The last screen sticks its neck out; I doubt all those predictions will prove out.

    Hi Jess,

    Yes, I had the same reaction to the economic prognostication. “The US economy will bounce back in the coming 24 months despite the ongoing recession…” seemed awfully glib.
