Unexpectedly Intriguing!
June 16, 2006

Carnival Midway from The Jerk Well, we spoke too soon last week when we pronounced the Festival of Job Hunting to be dead. It's back this week, but it seems to be on life support as it only has five posts, and two of them are duplications!

Now, we could go on about zombie carnivals, and honestly, we like them much better than haiku-oriented blog carnivals, but that would be keeping you from reading the best business, money and personal finance posts, as well as The Best Post of the Week, Anywhere!(TM) Just scroll down for this week's edition of On the Moneyed Midways!
