Also: Since Phil Gramm says only whiners think we're going to have/having a recession, and I don't want to be a whiner... I'm window-shopping online. (Plus, someone who indulges me suggested to me that I should.)
And I really, really want this bronze leather jacket. Doesn't it just say "decadent excess" to you?
