When you look at our economic situation... past, present and future... a picture is worth thousands of $$$'s. The Gordian Knot.

Def: Gordian Knot - 1) a term for a difficult problem; 2) "cut the Gordian Knot" is a popular way to describe a neat solution for an apparently insurmountable difficulty.

Myth has it that Alexander the Great 'untied' the Gordian Knot by simply slicing the knot in half with his sword... and ruled happily ever after.

I think this is a great term for our economic situation. Unfortunately... Ol' Alex is wandering some where else.

Yeah, Ol' Alex used blunt force trauma to solve the riddle. Lightening could strike... like GE could decide to build some kind of light industry plant here... with their new world HQ embedded in the facility. It's not an impossible thought, but highly improbable.

Also, it's not an impossible thought that somewhere on our fiber parallax there is a (weak) spot to untie the knot. It may take a perfect storm, but we have the right folks thinking in the right way. This isn't a quick fix, but one of urgent importance... to have a high profile success or two. Success breeds success.
