I stopped into a Weis supermarket, a place where I don’t normally shop. Elly needed a bottle of Advil, and as I was looking for the Pharmacy aisle, I walked by the meats rack… and there, in all it’s glory, was Gaspar’s Linguica!
Gaspar’s Linquica is a Portuguese sweet sausage which, if you ever lived on Cape Cod or in New Bedford, MA, or anywhere in a hundred mile range of North Dartmouth, MA, you would have accepted as one of the ordinary joys of life.
It’s only after you move far away… say to Shepherdstown, WV… that you realize what you have lost. Elly and I have searched stores for years to see if anyone carried this most delicious meat product with no luck. But finding it today gives me hope for peace and prosperity in the world.
“The answer is: yes, many of the protesters do understand what Wall Street and more generally the nation’s economic elite have done for us. And that’s why they’re protesting.”
Let’s see… did they push worthless mortgages and leave the lower middle class holding the bag?
Did they make millions while many of us lost just about everything because of their activities?
Is the sky above us?
– John Huntsman
Governor Huntsman skipped last night’s Vegas debate… smart move, I think, after seeing the nonsense that came out of it, and instead held a New Hampshire Town Meeting, finishing up with:
“What happens in New Hampshire affects the World.”
“As to what to do for the housing industry, specifically, and are there things that you could do to encourage housing: One is, don’t try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom. Allow investors to buy homes, put renters in them, fix the homes up. And let it turn around and come back up.”

Wait until they try to find renters that can afford them.
