Yeah, so I’m reading up on my daily stock market news and what do I find?

Stocks have come off their lows quite a bit at this point, but it can be seen that today was generally not a good day for the markets. You mean even killing the ‘monster’ al-Zarqawi couldn’t bring joys to the hearts of the free world?
In other news, if I get the job I had an interview for today, I will jump for joy. But most likely not. What are the chances I’ll be chosen out of an original 136 applicants…?
