Lots of For Sale signs sprouting like psilocybin mushrooms out there.
I say that because the etymology of psilocybin is:
psilocybin"bare head" - as in - "no helmet to protect the head in the case of a crash". Or if you go with psen "to rub", it is akin to scratching your head in disbelief, or such. Hmmph.
1958, from Mod.L. psilocybe, name of a Central Amer. species of mushroom, from Gk. psilos "bare" (akin to psen "to rub") + kybe "head."

WASHINGTON -- KPMG LLP sued former auditing client Fannie Mae, the biggest source of money for US home loans, for "fraudulent deception" that prevented KPMG from uncovering $6.3 billion in overstated earnings.
Fannie Mae from 1998 until 2004 withheld and distorted its accounting, engaging in "breach of contract, fraudulent misrepresentation, fraudulent inducement" and other wrongdoing, New York-based KPMG said in an April 16 filing with the US District Court in Washington. A Fannie Mae spokesman declined to comment.
I heard the chief Of West Fraser Timber (2nd biggest in Canada) saying that the forestry business in Canada is well into recession (on CBC radio). Um, isn't forestry the biggest exporter of the BC economy, and one of it's biggest drivers? Or are things different now?
