The Week in Review…

Good afternoon, Netizens…

The Dow Jones news ticker and an advertisement for the movie “Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa” are seen simultaneously in Times Square Friday in New York. How utterly appropriate!

In case you missed it, on Friday Wall Street joined world stock markets in a horrifying plunge into the fnancial nether regions by summarily dropping 400 points in early trading, and all the major indexes falling more than 4 percent. Picture is an AP Photo/Mark Lennihan) (October 24, 2008)

It remains to be seen what new thrills and entertainment we will witness this coming week. As someone here as noted, it somehow is oddly appropriate that we are facing unprecedented economic devastation the like of which we have not seen since the Great Depression just as we prepare to elect a new President and Halloween draws near. It does add new meaning to the uncertainty of trick or treat, doesn’t it?

Here is hoping things look better this coming week.
