A Who's Who of Doomsday

No surprise to many followers of Doomsday who is #1 on this list:

Top Seven Attention-Hungry Doomsayers - The Daily Beast

I like how the article ends, and it's something I've said repeatedly about the permabears now enjoying the limelight: Elaine Garzarelli made herself famous calling the 1987 crash. She never made another big one again.

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

Sometimes death is not as tragic as not knowing how to live. This man knew how to live--and how to make others glad they were living. - Jack Benny at Nat King Cole's funeral
