QOTD: Duct tape?

Speaking at the enterpriseSeattle 37th Annual Economic Forecast Conference, Conference Board national economist Ken Goldstein said the current recession looks like it will drag on through the rest of this year.

"The best thing about 2009? It might make you nostalgic for 2008," he said. "2009 is the year of duct tape."

The year of duct tape? I much prefer the Asian lunar calendar names. Beginning Jan. 26, we will be in the Year of the Ox. In the Chinese lunar calendar, 2009 is 4706, the Year of the Ox, or Ji Chou.

People born in the Year of the Ox represent a sign of prosperity and are natural leaders who inspire others. Any guesses who might be an Ox personality? Yep, Barack Obama.
