Martha Stewart and the Economy

This Variety article (Link) has great pieces of wisdom from Martha Stewart about the reality of today's economy.

Her basic point ... yes, the world is a different place now.  The parties, events, etc. have been scaled down ... but they're still happening and often they're more creative and fun.  And the people attending are still enjoying themselves ... often more than before.  No need to show up in a designer outfit that costs too much ... throw on some J.Crew!

Anyway, she's pretty optimistic about things and has a pretty good feel for some of the positives that might emerge from this current difficulty.
