With apologies to those who commented on the earlier version of this post, when the photograph I had posted changed to a completely different photo, negating the meaning of my post, I took it down.
But as I said before, the Cowboys apparently cannot have it all. Given that I would have dropped the ball in the situation pictured below, I'm sure, I can't really say anything about today's result except it's got to get better after this:

Since I've adopted Goldman Sachs as my parasite, I'm learning all sorts of interesting things about them! For example, in his capacity of Secretary of the Treasury, former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson might bail out Goldman Sachs. Say, you think his old firm will take him back when he returns to the dreaded private sector? Bloomberg: Read below the fold...

Hey, it was the economy, stupid! Like (lambert blushes modestly) some of us were saying. McClatchy:
Barring a dramatic change in the political landscape over the next three weeks, Democrats appear headed toward a decisive victory on Election Day that would give them broad power over the federal government.
Oh progressives! Progressives! Read below the fold...

So, if we the taxpayers are going to start buying (er, "injecting capital into") the big banks, shouldn't we be getting voting shares? Angry Bear asks a good question:
I wonder whom we are saving here?

As the golden sunlight of a late Michigan afternoon poured into Bob's neat but modest home in one of the oldest residential sections of Detroit, he smugly sank back in his leather recliner. Life had never been so good.
Oh, the Michigan-Toledo game this afternoon had been a little boring. When would those Mid-America Conference schools realize they could never defeat a Big 10 powerhouse like the Wolverines? If anything, Michigan football was better than the years when Bo Schembechler coached. It seemed impossible, but there it was. Read below the fold...

The man with the beard is crossing over to the other side of the street. He is smoking a cigarette. His stride is long. He makes his own path on
the grass not using the sidewalk. Pace remains constant.
Sounds of Detroit give passerby’s eyes, I nod to a woman wearing the navy pea coat. She has the same ipod as me.
The man with a beard is crossing towards the street, a cigarette dangles from his lips.
I look down, my nose feels cold.
A couple laugh at the intersection. They are oriental japanese or chinese? . I can hear their voices but I cannot tell.
The man with the beard crosses over to the street, cigarette swirls smoke, grey sky snaps a black and white photograph. Read below the fold...
