In 127 days the unthinkable could happen.
As we recover from the recession we have to be careful to not celebrate too early. Who can forget the 2005 College Football National Championship game between USC and Texas when Reggie Bush was running down the field for a certain touchdown, started dancing around and ended up fumbling the ball before he made it to the end zone?

As a child, I learned about the "valley of the shadow of death" from the 23 Psalm. A similar image is conjured up by economists who talk about the "valley of death."
