While seeing a movie over Thanksgiving (the new James Bond), I noticed the following signage for the new movie "Confessions of a Shopaholic." The movie is based on the "Shopaholic" book series - but it really couldn't be hitting theaters at more ironic time. Shopaholic's tag line is "all she ever wanted is a little credit..."

Not only did that help get us into this mess - it's a feeling that is (and will continue) to be commonly felt throughout the country.

Shopaholic Plot:A college grad named Rebecca Bloomwood (Isla Fisher) moves to Manhattan to nurture her shopping addiction and get involved in the New York magazine world.
