Please Stop Talking About the Fiscal Cliff

Harland Dorrinson, a forty-one-year-old carpet-tile salesman and self-described “fiscal-cliff nut”

has turned himself into a pariah with his inexplicable interest in the most tedious conversation topic ever.... If Mr. Dorrinson has a regret, it is that the fiscal-cliff issue will be resolved one way or the other by the end of the year: “I know I’m going to experience a profound feeling of loss when it’s gone. There hasn’t been anything this fascinating since the debt-ceiling debate.” -- : The New Yorker

Your Say

We stepped off the fiscal cliff in 1913. Maybe it's one hundred years to the bottom.

I'm sure he will find something else to fascinate himself with in these Interesting Times.
