The Dow is down 300 points as I write;
Gas is up to $5 a gallon (and I am traveling this week);
One of our battle buddies' son is heading to Iraq Wednesday;
The Jaguars lost 20-16;
The political rhetoric is angry and hate-filled;
My son's platoon sergeant thinks he is an SB;
Thousands of people are suffering in Texas and Louisiana.
I think it's time to declare a news moratorium.
