It's a "bull market" for the next set of corporate sweeteners, spinners and arm-twisters:

Get it while you can.

"There's a growing sense, a growing probability, that the next administration could be Democratic,"
said Craig L. Fuller, executive vice president of Apco Worldwide, a lobbying and public relations firm, who was a White House official in the Reagan administration.
Not sure what to think about that. I thought it was a forgone conclusion. Good to know the Mr. Fuller still has hopes for business as usaul.

As a parting gift from this administration the coal companies in Appalachia are free to remove the tops of the mountains.

I suppose this could all be reversed in 2009 , how many mountain tops can they remove and dump into the valley streams in a year?

Another thing that no one can do a damn thing to stop.

Yes it is relief to see the news from around the world. All horrible things going on in the world which make our problems seem so trivial. I don't know what I would do without the news from Darfur and the Congo.
