BTW, Audrey... one of my co-worker came by and we were talking about a stock that lost 30% yesterday... and he said he read something that said we are now in 'bubble' economies... that we will continue to be going from one bubble to the other... tech, internet, real estate.. and the next one coming is 'alternative energy' or 'green'...

We have a huge herd mentality in this country now and people are going after the quick buck.. but so is everybody else...

Should we go from "in God we trust" to "in bubbles we trust"?

Looks like this subject deserves its own thread, so I split it off from the housing price drop discussion.
