Concerned Mother: "I would hope that somebody would look up the credit card application before a credit card is issued … people get credit card denials all the time," Christiansen said. "How can somebody who is an adult who has a job get a credit card denial, and a child who has no income and no assets get one? I would certainly hope they would have some sort of review process."

Welcome to America folks.

In other serious, earth-shattering news :o), I will be away for the weekend with three friends of mine. We had originally decided to go to the Longaberger Basket place in Ohio (which is quite literally a basket!), but changed our minds and are now going to Boston! I think we must be a little crazy because we are going to a graduation party tonight and then we're leaving at 3 AM to hit the highway.
It's going to be a long time before I see a bed again, but I'm sure we'll have a fabulous time together. Last time I checked, I leave in 56 days, so I'm making every effort to spend time with the people I love:o).
Don't worry... I'll be back!
