Holy Prescience, Batman


I stumbled across this from my archives.
In today's Times, Bill Safire cautions us not to get too exuberant in what he sees as an amazing financial recovery for the nation, for fear of causing another bubble.
Revisiting that editorial,
Contrarians, arise! As consumers are consumed with buying DVD's over their cellphones, getting second mortgages to take advantage of stock tips and letting their invaluable animal spirits get the better of their judgment, it is for us to march around with sandwich boards that say ''Repent - The End Is Near.''
That's what you get, though, for wearing a sandwich board and portending doom - nobody listens to you.
