New Years Eve 2008
We just got pounded with another snow storm. Its actually rather beautiful, I am one of those people who more or less likes the snow. Its the day after the storm actually, when the sky is clear blue and the sun is brilliant, that's my favorite day.
Wall Street gave the year a going away present with a 108 point bump and the S&P cracked 900. Thank the new years baby and basically the good faith of a few investors, because faith is all they are working with at this time.
We are going out tonight so this will be my last post for 2008.
Its been a helluva year, I wouldn't wish it on anybody, cripes.
We have lots to rehash and because we are Americans, we have virtually nothing to learn from history. That would be too simple, we need to re-live monumental dufusism ad infinitum.
Speaking of dufus, President Dufus must have started packing his bags by now. Its takes a lot of stuff to fill the White House, and we hear there's rooms full of garbage bags stuffed with 20s and 100s left over from billions lost in Iraq and bailout money for friends and lovers. Just a little coffee money to tide ya over.
Anyhow, have a safe night, go out, or sleep, or watch the ball drop, but especially be safe.
