Restoring the U.S. Housing & Mortgage Markets?

The past week I spent twenty minutes On Air with Pat Campbell of 1170 KFAQ in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The discussion was, for the most part, centered about various plans presently being tossed about having to do with salvaging the U.S. Housing Markets and what to do with all that pesky Mortgage Debt. Let’s be quite clear, there is no escaping the fact that if the goal is to preserve both the Housing Market AND the Mortgage Debt then there is no solution; there is no way to accomplish both at the same time. To believe so would also then suggest that one can stay dry in a monsoon by stepping between drops of rain!

Sadim vs Midas Touch

June 1, 2009

Nothing like a good semordnilap to set one straight! Always looking for a new and invigorating way to describe the unexplainable,  I was toying with the word Midas (you know the Ancient Greek known for his skill at turning anything he touched to gold) looking for a unique way to describe the opposite.  I toyed with “Mudus Touch” (turn to mud), “Mitus Touch” (as in dust mites) and so on but then I discovered a word, semordnilap which is palindromes spelled backwards, I had an idea!  How perfect is that? 

“The Sadim Touch”,  everything Sadim touches, it turns to chaos!
