CNN has an interesting article on the state of the economy in Wilkes Barre, PA. Which sparked a question? Downtown Wilkes Barre has a B&N Bookstore??? While Dahntahn's B&N remains closed. (yes, I know, I am told there is a B&N in Point Park College, but still).

and nothing at all to do with Pittsburgh as far as I know; just interesting to me. For the financial wonks out there: a story that would be funny if not so serious in the FT today about what amounts to open warfare between the hedge funds of the world and the sovereign state of Iceland. From a purely self-interested perspective, a devalued Icelandic is great for those looking to visit. Hard to find anywhere in the world the US dollar is worth much, making travel expensive. If you have never thought of it, Iceland is a great place to visit.
