There has to be something I'm not getting here...

A big sucking sound...



If you read this space much you've probably picked up on how much I like the move towards local economies. It's the lynchpin to stepping through the chaos of coming months and years to a world that offer our kids and theirs a chance (who knows how big) at decent lives. So why is it that every month I'm shipping $30-50 that could stay in my community to Chase Bank?… Continue
