Bad Moving History

Uhaul has unintentionally linked their brand name to two of the least fun "moving adventures" in American history.
Read how corporate slogans and local history don't always mix well....

And, just because this was a short post, fate has provided me more material; this time, it's bad historical humor at the Fed in 2000
Chicago Fed President Michael Moskow (joking about the possibility of a recount of the Fed's decision on rates): "And finally, I just want to say that if there is going to be a recount, I would like to speak first because those of us in Chicago know how to handle recounts!"

Chairman Alan Greenspan: "I've heard that if you rig the numbers in the beginning, you won't have to do a recount."
And where did you hear that, Mr. Greenspan?
