An Upgrade For Boredom...

With American sovereign credit under fire, world markets in a spin, China and Russia chastising the U.S. and Iran enroute to the bomb, the new fad on the horizon might just be… boredom. Bombarded as we are with 24/7 news of crises, wired as we are, around the clock, it’s human nature to yearn for that which eludes us. Both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have just run articles on the joys of tedium; odes, respectively, to “The Heady Thrill of Having Nothing to Do” and “The Thrill of Boredom.” Were boredom a commodity, looks like it would be a buy.
