     Mixed metaphors for 2-007

    HOUSING BUBBLE WATCH....The housing meltdown continues apace
    says Kevin Drum.

    To nit-pick: bubbles pop if made of soap, sag if of gum; implode is a sound generic term. An igloo can melt, at a pinch a sandcastle.

    Only resourceful Hollywood can unmix the metaphors. In one of the later Bond movies, Die Another Day, the villain's essential palace-cum-death-ray-control-centre is a huge dome made of ice. In the finale this naturally both implodes and melts. So a bubble meltdown can fit crazed plans for world domination, not the mundane housing slump.
