Fretting over the stalling economy? Tearing your doilies into little strips as you stare at that monthly mortgage statement? Not to worry, says the East Bay Business Times. In a story headlined, "Entrepreneurial drive remains strong in country, even in poor economy," the Times assures its readers that "Americans' desire to start their own business remains strong." Their source? A poll commissioned by Yahoo Small Business, in which "nearly two-thirds of the adults surveyed have thought about owning their business in the past year." Owning our own business? Hey, that sounds okay to us. Maybe a nice little bar in Gloucester or something, get us a company account we could expense the martini lunches to.... Wait a minute: It's true! We do think about starting our own business at least once a year! God bless America! The Republic is saved!
