Mad Mail: Is a Depression Imminent?

Thursday, 17 Jan 2008 | 9:11 PM ET

Hi Jim: I was amazed and delighted by your very accurate and courageous discussions on CNBC this morning. You told it like it is in America today, and it isn't a pretty picture. The rest of the news media is constantly sugar coating the bad news occurring in the economy today. The sad part of all of this, is that I only see things getting worse. I have been around for a while, and for the first time, I see the possibility of a depression. Thanks again for being one of the few voices of truth and courage...keep up the great work. --Joe
