    Texas. My sales are only 33% of what they were when the bottom dropped out of the economy. We still get the same number of people passing through our store, and when they buy they still buy the same price levels, so our ticket-size has not changed. But we have fewer tickets. People are looking, but they are not buying. I am lucky, so far I have enough personal capital to keep going, but I have told my employees that we have to take a serious look at where we stand and where we think we are going at the end of May. I was sorely afraid that Romney might win. That would have been the kiss of death for my store, and my three employees, professional, dependable, trustworthy all, would have soon been out of work.

    Might and Right are always fighting, in our youth it seems exciting. Right is always nearly winning, Might can hardly keep from grinning. -- Clarence Day
