The financial market craziness makes me wish we were back to relatively harmless presidential politics. Someone sent me this story about a honey-stealing bear just before McCain told his overused bear boondoggle story on Friday.

Here’s some consolation political humor and some cute.

Ghost Town

It was very interesting to observe peoples’ behavior last weekend. We went to pick up some kitchen stuff at a popular upscale outdoor mall and the place looked deserted. I mean, there were cars though not as many as usual, but we saw few people actually wandering around. Very dramatic change.

When I heard how Bernenke was on board on this bail-out, a chill went straight down my spine. I really hope that election politics takes a backseat for a bit. Small hope, I know.

If you want some reading on what hit us last week, read this article on the financial crisis.
