UPDATE: More surprises?
In midday trading, the Dow dropped 260.37, or 3.32 percent, to 7,590.04. It fell as low as 7,553.48 in early trading -- just a point away from the blue-chip index's five-and-a-half month closing low of 7,552.29 reached Nov. 20.I'm shocked, shocked, at this vicious display of institutional racism toward President
UPDATE II: Oh, this is freaking rich:
Right-wing economic "theory" is destroying America. It’s doing a bigger job on us that al Qaeda could ever have dreamed.Among the more astonishing assertions I've read in a while, that one, since it hangs on a New York Times story about the economic woes of California, which is being strangled by (among other things) its public-employee unions. At some point, one must learn to discern the key factors in complex causation, and to see California's debacle as a result of "right-wing economic theory" is so bass-ackward I don't even know where to begin fisking.
