Isn't this how the great depression started?

In this interconnected world, it's important to realize that we are all connected. Nouveau flat-earth early adopter Tom Friedman realized this before you did, and now he writes columns about how the selfish desire of a billion plus Indians to have their own cars and not be packed like lemmings into shiny trains stinking of curry and ethanol is totally screwing up the cooler head's Utopian vision of a green world run by multinational corporations that launch green initiatives and sometimes even color their logos green when these initiatives are launched.

So, blah, blah, blah, the world is going to end in a puff of exhaust smoke, but where do I go to find out what Germany/Brazilian supermodel and serial dater of American celebrities Gisele Bundchen thinks about the medium-term prospects of the once mighty dollar? You know, news I can use.

Luckily, we have Matt Drudge to provide the answer on his well-trafficked space:

Even with that inconvenient cat out of the bag, I'm still not going to go as far as to say Bundchen's lack of confidence will do America like Soros did Malaysia, but -- even at 600 Euros an ounce -- gold is starting to look like a bargain.
