The market will shoot up when we get a jobs program

As Trading Week Ends, Investors’ Concerns Do Not - NYTimes.com
It's headlines like this that make me want to punch out Eric Cantor. Who will pay for a jobs program, Eric? Surely not the billionaires you are protecting. We wouldn't think of asking them to lift a finger. Maybe we can find enough poor people in your district to hurt a bit more so that the next time around they will think twice before pulling the lever for you.

Somalia Now Faces Cholera

Somalia Ravaged by Cholera Epidemic, U.N. Says - NYTimes.com

By all means get those juvenile dealers

Juvenile charged for selling “Scooby snax” | The Franklin County Times: "Oliver said even though the substances weren’t considered illegal right now, they still had the same affects as other hallucinogens and could have serious side effects, which is why the juvenile suspect was charged with reckless endangerment."
The greatest hallucinogens are free and legal. They rise in the mind as signs. They bump up against brute fact. The result is an epiphany of advancement beyond imagining. But if that is not forthcoming, we have preemptive law enforcement going after minors. Happy day.
