Loomings, but not of Ishmael's

With the price of natural gas, I'm going to get a wood stove this winter and heat my house with credit card offers.

With the Red Sox post-season and the Patriots doing so well, I have started listening to quite a bit of sports radio.

What amazes me is that a large proportion of advertising on sports talk radio is from companies promising to help me get out of crushing credit card debt. During some hours, this stuff comprises half of all the ads.

And all of the local car ads assure me that I can buy a car no matter how bad my credit might be.
