Economic Woes Blight Holiday Cheer Online
Nationally, the news was similar, with a sprinkling of discussion of the Obama White House preparations and stimulus plans. In the Wall Street Journal, the increase in churches declaring bankruptcy is a good -- if depressing -- pre-Christmas Eve read, and The Huffington Post highlights California's budget wranglings with an official's threat of state bankruptcy. USA Today has a broad take on the story -- if we can all just hang on through most of the next year, things should improve by 2010.
What can I say? Happy holidays, folks.
