You Know that Part in SimCity...


... where you're heretofore awesome metropolis starts to go to shit with fires and deteriorating infrastructure and traffic jams and, I dunno, a monster attacking.

What with today's 7.2 percent unemployment figure, another fucking coal ash spill in Tennessee, Gaza, Russia/Ukraine, the $1.2 trillion deficit, and intra-party squabbling over the scope of Obama's stimulus package... I think we're pretty much right there.
