In one of the most bizarre moments of an incredibly bizarre few years, the last gasp of the Covid Cash insanity was experienced with Bed Bath and Beyond (BBBY).

Slope of Hope Blog Posts
Slope initially began as a blog, so this is where most of the website’s content resides. Here we have tens of thousands of posts dating back over a decade. These are listed in reverse chronological order. Click on any category icon below to see posts tagged with that particular subject, or click on a word in the category cloud on the right side of the screen for more specific choices.
