I'm allowed to get this article wrong because it's about Numbers and Numbers and I are not on speaking terms. But I'll do my best.
This article was inspired by one of those delicious "Aha!" moments but when I excitedly explained my epiphany to Michael, his response was a sidelong glance and the sarcastic comment, "You just now figured that out!?!"
God gives some people numbers and He gives other people words. He didn't give me numbers.
Now you know why I never write about the economy...because I don't understand it...nor do I understand Socialism vs Communism vs Marxism. I really tried! I failed!

The Location: Prague
Hostess Chi-Lan Lieu was viewing the stunningly banal architecture built during Communism's heyday in Prague when that hilarious one-liner just kinda slipped out: "Communism is so boring!" she exclaimed.
You hear a lot of things about Communism. But Chi-Lan is right! Communist art, Communist music, Communist literature, life in general under Communism pretty much sucked. No one ever really says, "I gotta get me some of that"...not even the Lefties. They push the policies of Socialism but I've never heard one of them actually blurt out, "America should be just like Mother Russia during the 1970s." They wouldn't dare!
In the face of ugly buildings, ugly art and atonal music, Communists had just one home run swing: killing people. They excel at that. Otherwise, there's really not much to do under Communism except drink.
