If things go so badly that the S&P 500 becomes permanently worthless, I have a hard time believing that the people who own gold will rule the world. I think it’s more likely that the people who own steel that is conveniently shaped like guns will control everything, including all of the shiny rocks. At that point, the new currency will be something along the lines of “Wash my car and I won’t shoot you in the leg.”

D K Sushi and Seoul Asian Food Market – A Brief Review

Naked Tiger Roll

DK’s is a neighborhood sushi bar – a few blocks from my house – if that concept even makes sense. There’s tables inside a small Asian market, and you walk up to the beer fridge to select your beer and sake. The sushi is delicious and affordable, and it’s a casual place. The same sushi chef is there all the time, and he does magic stuff with different degrees of warmth for the sushi. The fish has been fresh tasting the two times I’ve been there, and the staff (one or two waiters in addition to the sushi chef) are friendly.

It’s not fancy decor or anything, just good eating. DK’s is a good place to go to hang out with friends and eat well, not impress people or yourself.
