Experts: I've been so amused this past week where oil prices have been declining and experts are whining that the decline in oil prices is a sign that the economy is slowing. These are the same experts who said that high oil prices would cause the economy to decline, and something should be done to lower prices to keep the economy vibrant. Get it? Higher prices are bad. Lower prices are bad. See? Anyone, even you, can be an expert. Just say what's happening is bad, no matter what it is. #$!(*&^%&amp;*()&^$^&*(!^&*!*%^!&*^*&&*(!!!!!!! I tried to explain this over the dinner table, and it got quite a chuckle. A requirement for experts seems to be that one should be suffering from bipolar disorder.
