I Will Say No

Congress has voted down the bailout.
On FOX, Donald Trump said oil prices should be dropping like a rock very soon, and that the American economy will weather this and come out even stronger. Trump is one of the most successful businessmen in the world, so I'm willing to trust his analysis.
The FOX reporter mentioned that the Dow drop of about 500 points, while serious, isn't in the top ten of percentage drops. The Black Monday crash in 1987 was a 25% drop, while today's was only a 6% drop.
We will get through this, folks. It's bad, yes - but it's been much worse before.
But remember - the Democrats had nothing to do with this. Just ask Nancy Pelosi.
Well, the Angels finally did it - they won Sunday to get their first 100-win season. It took them the entire season (Sunday's game was the last game of the regular season), but they did it...and on Fan Appreciation Day, yet. How's that for good timing?
And the other interesting thing about their season is that their at-home and away standings are exactly the same: 50-31. They couldn't have done that if they planned it.
Their post-season starts Monday against the Red Sox. Last year, they played the Red Sox in the first round of the play-offs, and the Sox swept. Let's hope it's different this year.
I wasn't able to catch the debate, but the response on many websites seems to be the usual. The pro-Obama sites say Obama won, and the pro-McCain sites say McCain won.
But all the sites are giving points to both sides.
So I'd call it a draw. Not to worry, there'll be more.
I woke this morning to the sound of thunder. No, I didn't start humming a song from 1962.
It's cloudy but warm. No rain in the forecast.
Time to get on with my day.
Be seeing you.
