I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that the Cubs will not win the World Series.

Red Sox beating the Phillies is not a prediction but a wicked dream!

Perhaps the SF Chronicle, of the major papers. But they all will continue to shrink in coverage and importance, as news reporting shifts more online.

Some of the bigger papers may be able to make the shift to completely online and thereby survive.

I’m thinking a lot of small to mid-size papers will fade away, as they’re too small to do online properly.

It is without question that the clout of the Dinosaur Media is shrinking by the day.

I have no list, but I am quite certain that the USA culture
and state of the nation that I grew up in will continue to decline.
It will take a massive revolution, or act of God, to
bring the USA back from the brink.
I will add...This applies to ALL of the western cultures and nations.

Republicans in the House and Senate betray the will of the people.

Whatever happens, all of the bad stuff will be Bush’s fault.

Bob Barker will die. Have you seen him on the commercial? Holy crap, the guy looks like he’s 124 or so.

Major weakening of the US dollar vs. major international currencies.

8% inflation while the official indexes exclude food and energy costs to report officially low percentages.

One trillion in US debt bought by the Fed to further monetize our debt.

Further average house price decline.

Unemployment percentage increases to 11%.

Gas prices increase to $4.00 per gallon.

Obama declares that all is getting slowly better, but he needs more cooperation from the GOP for the US to fully recover.

I still have Keith Richard in my dead pool. He’s been there since 1975, and one of these years I’m going to get lucky!

Senator Lautenberg (D,NJ) will die in office this year. The NJ legislature will attempt to force the Governor to appoint a Democrat to replace him.

The NJ media will agree. The NJ supreme Court will interpret the Constitution to agree as well.
