What a Monday, huh?
It wasn't a good weekend, was it?
Everybody knows I'm a sports nut. So, for us sports fans here in the Northwest, specifically in Washington state, it was a particularly bad weekend.
Opponents outscored Washington football teams, the Seahawks, Huskies and Cougars, 120-23. Depressing is the word you're looking for.
Then we all wake up this morning to find that Wall Street isn't too enamored with the bailout plan, even though America mortgaged the future to help those corrupt bastards (helped by NO OVERSIGHT from this government, but this is a topic for later discussion). As of now, at 11:14 AM Pacific time, the Dow is down 630 points and is below 10,000 for the first time since October, 2004. Four years ago, if you're trying to do the math. NASDAQ is no better, down 141 points to just around 1,800.
Good times to be had by all!
Update: good to see that the markets rebounded a bit by closing bell, but there's still a tough road ahead. Unfortunately, no results were changed for the football teams, they still lost a combined 120-23.
