Welcome to the second installment of Buck-O-Quest,1 the surprisingly continuous series dedicated to the stumbling U.S. economy and what you as a potentially impacted citizen can do to recover yourself out from underneath its ominously descending bulk.
We will begin today’s missive with a conveniently timed letter from one of our concerned readers.
The economy is really getting me down. I’ve never had what you would call steady employment, but with this recession things have been harder for me than ever.
In happier times I could always supplement my income by liquidating the assets of local banks and liquor stores. But ever since I suffered a debilitating trebuchet accident I have been confined to my recliner, living at the mercy of a former cell-mate and an array of absorbent undergarments.
What can I do to help regain my financial independence?

I’m not sure that this mode of transportation is safe worthy.
OK, this all sounds good. But although I don’t want to appear the racial bigot that I must obviously be, Idaho and all, it’s apparent that a growing portion of the nation’s iniquitous entrepreneurs are visitors from more sunny climes. What’s available in the way of financial assistance for hiring interpreters?

Hail to Comma originality!
(Can’t stop laughing at the mental pic of Chris Non-C using his trebuchet on criminals)
