I have an announcement to make:
I am suspending all activites in my life, and focusing all of my mental energy on sending positive thoughts to Washington, in order to resolve the current financial crisis as quickly as possible. I will TiVo the presidential debate on Friday night, if it is held, and postpone watching it until sometime late next week, at the earliest. I may cancel watching the vice presidential debate altogether. In the name of putting country first, I hope that all of you will do the same.
The dog is barking downstairs right now. He needs to go outside. Too bad I can't take him for a walk--with all my activities being suspended, and all. He'll just have to hold it until Dr. Wife, MD comes home tonight.
