Why deal with one crisis when you can have two! As the forecast calls for even wilder weather--thanks to global warming meeting "El Nino" head on -- the economic storm for us continues right here at home. Just a quick scan of the latest headlines brings back the sad news of unemployment reaching historic highs in nine states and a spike in demand for food banks in well-off suburbs. It kind of makes it hard to breathe, doesn't it?

Arianna Huffington, media maven founder of the Huffington Post, recently spoke with BigThink about what keeps her up at night. She said a recent trip to Greece made her think of us as the residents of Pompeii, just before the volcano exploded.
