Indeed, economics has earned its dubious honor as the dismal science, and those whores called traders and stock brokers- lemmings- because the slightest little upset sends their world plummeting earthward at a tremendous velocity, causing them to leap over the edge of the nearest sky scraper as they join their shared destiny with those worthless scraps of paper – flitting to the ground like leftovers from a ticker tape parade - that their fortunes are written on.

Rufus thought that a down economy would negatively effect the murder-for-hire business, but my friend Schuster assured him that he had it on good authority from his hitman friend Vincent that it was, in fact, just the opposite, and that Vincent had told him that while there might be times when money was tight, there were never times when “get even” ran out.
