What Your Neighbors Are Thinking

by Bobby Blair
August 14, 2011

So just what are your neighbors and firends thinking about the economy...

This survey was conducted randomly with people I just happened to cross in my daily travels. I asked those I met two short questions: #1: Are we in for a double dip recession? And #2: Were you affected by the most recent recession?

Yes, I don't even think the last one is over. 2. Me personally, not at all but it has my parents. Adam Vernon, 17.

Yes. Thank you, Obama, for making stocks affordable. 2. I used to have a retirement fund. John Greendale, 71.

Probably. #2 Retire?  When! Bob Nemet, 63

Absolutely. I've been touched. Teresa Lamkin, 45.

#1: Mark: No. Linda: I agree with whatever he says. #2 Mark: We've lost some customers (the Ahronians own a landscape company) who have been laid off. Mark Ahronian, 51 and Linda Ahronian, 56.

Yes. #2 - I dream of the wonderful years pre-2008. John Shannahan, wishful 40 something.

Hoping no. #2 The cost of gas. Steve Bradford, 61 almost retired.

No. #2 Haven't lost a job, but there's still a fear. #2. We're just cutting back. Carol Powell, 47.

.

I don't think we've got out of the first one yet. #2 Money doesn't go as far. Richard Finn, 67.

I don't know. #2 All I know is I'm broke and my paycheck doesn't go as far. Jackie Napolitano, 53

No. #2 A lot less for for your money now. Michael Stepansky, 32.

Yes. #2 No, it didn't, but indirectly it did. Tia Medeiros, 44.

No. #2 - Very little, but we adjusted. John Parquette ,Hitting a half century next year.

The People's House: The White House

by Charlie Collie

There was no ceremony in 1792 to mark the construction of the White House, but on October 13th of that year, the building of what is today, the most ceremonial place in America began. The first President to live in the White House was John Adams of Quincy, Massachusetts. Three other sons of Massachusetts, John Quincy Adams, John F. Kennedy, and George H. W. Bush have lived there as well. Today, October 13th, we celebrate the building of the White House. The original design for the White House by French architect and civil engineer Pierre Charles L’Enfant called for it to be modelled after the Palace of Versailles, but after a six year war for Independence from England and yet another war with England thirty years later in 1812, the White House, the future home of the Presidents would, not even remotely, be based on a “palace” design.
