Summit Up 6-5-12: Tired of worrying about the ‘conomy

Special to the Daily Although slightly alarmed by something she read in Summit Up, 9-month-old Emma McKechnie is nonetheless a big fan of the paper. Thanks to mom Heidi for sending this along!

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that likes to see our local youth getting informed about local doin’s. Here we see Emma McKechnie really getting a jump on any potential preschool competition by catching up on world affairs, local goings-on and, of course, the Sodoko puzzle.

You just can’t get them started too early, we say. And in a world where they say young people just don’t read the newspaper anymore, we must beg to disagree. Emma’s readership has just skewed our demographics down a couple of years!


On a more serious note, are you concerned about the state of the Grecian economy, or the downward trend of the Nasdaq? Howzabout the fate of the Euro and all that stuff?

We can’t get into it anymore, to be honest. The Dow goes up, the Dow goes down – and we’re not even quite sure what the Nasdaq is – and life pretty much continues as it was before. We try to be like Emma up there and be all worried about it, but we just can’t muster up the energy anymore. The economy has been so crappy for so long it’s just pointless to get in a big lather over it all. Some day, we predict, things will mellow out, and we’ll be able to relax a little bit. But in the meantime, the nice weather we’ve been having is free and enjoyable for all (unless, of course, you had to buy a $5 million third home and fly into Eagle in your private jet – then it can be a little spendy, but since you’re some kinda hedge fund manager who’s above all this economic disarray, you can afford it). We don’t even mind the afternoon showers, since they help tamp down the fire danger somewhat. (Even so, it’s still scary out there so don’t go running around in the woods with a flamethrower or anything stupid like that.)

Anyway, it’s Tuesday, again, so get out there and do the thing you do as best you can. It’s all we can ask.

We out.
