  • Up to mischief

        As if you weren’t peeved at banks enough:  Now comes HSBC.
        The two seminal issues of America’s 21st century have been the War on Terror and our ongoing economic malaise.
        The two are not independent of one another.  Undoubtedly, the vast treasure we have spent pursuing bad guys has been a drain on our economic strength.
