The Great Goldbug Invasion of 2021

If you live in certain portions of the Midwest and Atlantic coast, you're probably dealing with a terrible swarm of nasty bugs right now.  These bugs appear periodically, preying on innocent people.  Overcome with fear of these horrible creatures, some are no longer able to enjoy time with friends and family.  Instead, they huddle inside by the TV waiting for the next dire report to be published about the destruction sure to ensue.

“Back to the Future” – The Return of Inflation

In 1985 the movie “Back to the Future” was released.

Trapped in the past, Marty inadvertently prevents his future parents' meeting—threatening his very existence—and is forced to reconcile the pair and somehow get back to the future.” It's now 35 years later and I can’t help but wonder if we aren’t facing another crisis that could use some time-traveling help. You see, it’s been nearly that long since investors had to face down the terrible financial menace called inflation.
