It Was a Nice Afternoon of Golf, Away from the Office. Say, Did Anyone Hear Anything About the End of Our Financial System Today?

The markets tumble as the House defeats the financial Bailout/Rescue/$700 Billion whatever-the-fuck-you-want-to-call-it plan that, if you listen to just about every pundit everywhere, would have saved us from the financial apocalypse. They may be right. But they could also be wrong, and my uninformed opinion that I come to by watching lots of porn* and doing some serious economic thinking after, is that if we are on the brink of collapse of the magnitude they warn us of; then I doubt this action by the government would stop it. I doubt any government action would.

On the upside, this makes for some great CNBC viewing.
