sorry for the short lapse in posting

things have been pretty crazy with the whole fall of global capitalism and all. In the next few days look for thoughts on whether or not capitalism should rise again, or whether we should start looking for alternatives (no points for guessing which of those we prefer). One "middle road" that I've heard tossed around a lot would be a return to Keynesian economics and the Bretton Woods system. Well, it would certainly be better than what we've got at the moment.

But in the meanwhile, I'm just in awe of John McCain. The entire economic system is crashing around us and all he can do is throw stones at his opponent. Well, pebbles. Or those bits of bark that sort of look like rocks, but then you pick them up and they're not really.

I can't think of anything remotely serious to say in the face of McCain/Palin pandering to their racist base while trying to divert attention from the economic meltdown. So I'll let Betty White tell some jokes.
