I think the presidential election campaign just moved beyond lipstick on animals. The economic troubles of Wall Street are a pig too far for trivial cosmetic diversions.
I want to believe George Bush when he says that all will be well. But who knows? He has spoken nonsense for much of the last eight years. Millions of voters are surely feeling a new unease in their pocketbooks as the campaign enters the final stretch. Logically, that should benefit the Democrats but lately logic has had nothing to do with it.
Just as a precaution, in case the economy goes completely south, I am preparing my Will Blog for Food sign.
