Half the Starbucks in Houston are closed

And you wonder why Wall Street went supernova? Only 75 of Houston's 150 Starbucks are back in business after Hurricane Ike! And the stores that are open are probably doing more trade in free WiFi and clandestine showers in their bathrooms than in $4 lattes. I dearly hope the rest of the Starbucks will soon be up and running. Our economy can't take it.

As for banks, stock markets and mattresses, my money's done with that. From now on, I'm keeping all my estate on my person at all times. You may think I'm asleep, but if I feel even one of those quarters move, it's all over for you.
