CBS News is now mad at Letterman for going off on how McCain lied to him!

Lori didn’t know that Washington Mutual was seized and then sold, so I thought I should include this link:

The Russian invasion of Georgia resulted in a 30% decline of their stock market as international investors pulled $20 bil of foreign capital out of their country:

It is very interesting to me that the popularity of Facebook and Myspace among 18-to-24-year-olds is a factor in the decline of porn on the web. Gen. Y are too busy with their social networks and are too busy for porn!

It is sad to read about how XL Airways closed and stranded so many British people in the US who had to pay for a ticket on another airlines to get home. From what I read in another article, the 260 passengers on a flight from Orlando to London boarded the plane, were taxiing for takeoff, and then the plane stopped, announced they had gone out of business, and were told to get out…the passengers were literally stranded on the tarmac and had to walk back to the terminal!

Interesting that the hard economic times means that state lotteries have record sales. Apparently, people buy more lottery tickets when times are hard:

This guy is suing because he went to the doctor for a circumcision and woke up to find out that his item was amputated instead!
