We Bring You An Update On Both Kinds of Spam
The good news: there's less spam than there used to be (meaning junk email, not the exotic meat in a can, which is actually becoming more popular in the current economic conditions). The bad news: it may soon bounce back to its earlier levels, or perhaps even exceed them. But I'm happy to report that for us, it's mostly a problem of the past. Ever since we switched to Google mail, we've enjoyed the fact that its highly tuned spam filters have worked wonderfully. But back to the other kind of spam: if you find yourself cutting back on household expenses, don't feel bad. Even Harvard, with its $36-billion endowment, is cutting back on its spending these days.
