Re: LEAVE Brexit Vote: Leave EU Thu 23 June - Market and US Election Impact

Like everyone else, I have no clue what's going to happen but watching the votes & debates in Parliament over the last week+ has me leaning, today at least, toward the UK crashing out. What an unbelievable mess this all is.

You'd think I would have noticed if I'd been part of an attempted murder plot but I missed it completely.

Re: Retail Bankruptcies

At the rate things are going, our only shopping option will be America's national store, Amazon. I love being able to shop online - but I much prefer shopping in person.

Re: New York-New Jersey tunnel project

The trains that use the two Hudson River North Tunnels carry 200,000 passengers a day. Mostly commuters but also Amtrak. If the 109 year-old tunnels fail the disruption would be massive. Not Donald's problem. If everyone had private planes & helicopters like he does, they wouldn't need to take the ...
