Fun with Loansharks

Okay, so it’s not so much fun as funny.

Hey, look, the pickin’s are mighty slim on fun things for network geeks, so I’m forced to turn to funny op ed pieces. (Hint: If anyone has suggestions, I’m willing to check the link!) Anyway, this little number from Slate, compares loansharks to those paycheck/payday loan places. Frighteningly enough, the author makes a fairly good case for legalizing loansharks and outlawing the payday loan places!
Now, trust me, I’m from Chicago so I know from loansharks, okay? But, I’d rather be into them than pay the rates on those payday loans! Anyway, it’s a funny article, though it’s a sad subject.

I’ll try for something better next week, I promise!
