Mixed Realities

Despite encouraging economic data, investors continue to signal worried response to “few signs” of further Fed action in Washington and “more signs” of recession in Europe.  Each day it seems that realities underscoring a fragile economic recovery are drawn to our attention.
And so it was that even as I began my walk home from waterfront station yesterday – mind distracted by month-end’s less than stellar trading results – I was confronted by a panhandling, scruffy, albeit healthy-looking guy with:  “Can you spare some change to help with my recovery?”
What recovery?!  I wondered.
