Fell on bad days.

So, our betters in Congress get us involved in shaky investments, those investments go south (along with the government's player in the mortgage market), now they're hard at it to try to fix the mess, and they don't get the job done. Dow plummets, largest loss in the history of the market. Well done, Congress!! What are you going to do for an encore--rape my grandma while pouring sugar in my gas tank!

And, lest you think I'm not aiming this at everyone -- I BLAME EVERYONE!!!! I happen to be an innocent meager investor, and this year has removed a very significant portion of value from one of about two valuable assets I have.

Makes me feel like my man Tommy:

Presidential debates...

are usually something I avoid, but here's my take: Maybe I've had too much to drink, but the whole aesthetic of the debate favored McCain. Obama came off as someone who's never had his various positions questioned in any substantive way. He was on defense, and his defense came up lacking. McCain was direct, and he was able to point out where he differed from the Bush administration. Obama's running a campaign against someone other than McCain, and it showed.

We shall see.

UPDATE: see here:
OK, I’ll give you a real close now. Obama strikes me as a modern Chamberlain, praising his (oh-so-transient) “peace with honor.” McCain, however, comes across as “peace when we’re done kicking you ass and not one moment sooner.” And since this was ostensibly a foreign policy debate, I give the win to McCain. Oh, and one other thing — Obama is still talking as I write this. But he’s spending his last answer angling for the European vote, which does nothing but reinforce my point.

Sarah Palin

Well, her hair may be out of date, or too long, or something, but she rocked it out last night. There's finally something to get at least a little excited about for this election -- you've got the Messiah running with Senator Blowhard, and the Meanest Man This Side of the Pecos running alongside a striking looking woman who, given the opportunity, would gut you like a fish if you pissed her off. I'm a fan -- we'll see how things unfold.

And sexism? Everybody keep moving, nothing to see here. Obama's above that sort of thing, right?

Reunions are fun. Really, I mean it!

Went to my 20th high school reunion this past weekend. Very fun, good to see lots of folks I haven't seen for a very long time. Good times.
