business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Mayans, apparently, were wrong.

The Mayan calendar came to an end earlier today, which led some to believe that the world would come to an end at the same time. Which it didn't.

On the other hand, I wonder if the Mayans had a phrase that was the equivalent of "fiscal cliff"?

BTW ... "Doonesbury" has had a series of strips this week addressing the Mayan prophesy, and this morning, discovering that world had not come to an end, one character, Boopsie, announces that "no one disappeared."

To which her husband, B.D., responds: "If you don't count the Mayans."

The fact is that there are some six million Mayans still on the planet.

But methinks they need to do something about their branding. Not to mention work on getting a new calendar...
