One of my favorite blogs of the day is Naked Capitalism. The blog offers an almost increasingly despairing look at the economy and the politics behind making it better, and makes you want to crawl into a hole and hide for a couple of decades after you read it.
It is topped off by posts of “Links“, which contain a barrage of interesting and usually pessimistic links from across the news and blogosphere. At the end of each of these “Links” posts, however, contains a picture that author Yves Smith entitles “Antidote du jour”, usually contributed by a reader. Instead of describing the picture, I’ll post a few below.
Given the starkly negative (/realistic?) tone of the blog, “Antidote du jour” always makes me smile.
