We're Okay

"Words in shapes are always fun and I was just playing around with what fit in the shape of the U.S. What's funny is I did this before the financial meltdown. I must have been holding in some anxiety about the economy and reading way too much 'Adbusters.' Regardless, I think it's a poignant and positive message. Even if s*** hits the fan, I think we have enough wealth and resources as a country to survive. I'd like to think that we'd all pull together and be okay."
