Well, the Dow is of by hundreds of points, the Fed is announcing surprise inter-meeting rate cuts, Bank of America reported a 95% fall in its profits, and the outfits in the new spring catalogs have the shape and coloring of badly-decorated Easter eggs. All in all, not a good morning
It got worse....Fred Thompson dropped out of the race, meaning we now have to choose between one of the RINOs running and whatever greater evil the Dems put forth.... Feh...
Due to a wreck in the tunnel, I missed a class...
UPDATE: Rusty Shackleford...the omega Fred-Head of the MuNuvians is backing Romney and makes his case here...I'm furtively leaning towards McCain. Frankly, his war record counts for a lot.

A disputed election in Kenya has exploded into violence. Baldilocks has roundups here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. On a related note Captain Ed brings word of a possible resolution, facilitated by the intervention of US Assistant Secretary of State Jendai E. Frazer who seems to have gotten a tentative power sharing agreement on the table.

Sylvester Stallone and his film crew have escaped Burma where they were filming a new Rambo movie. Stallone reports they encountered what he describes as " ...a hellhole beyond your wildest dreams.." and were themselves brought under fire at times.
"I witnessed the aftermath - survivors with legs cut off and all kinds of land mine injuries, maggot-infested wounds and ears cut off. We saw many elephants with blown off legs. We hear about Vietnam and Cambodia and this was more horrific,'' Stallone told the Associated Press.
The families of several of his extras were imprisoned. He and his film crew have gotten several Burmese survivors (extras and such) out of the country as well. They reportedly filmed a good deal of the aftermath of the atrocities.
None of the news coming out of Burma is good....

Thankfully, she's OK, but even the smartest of us can be blindsided by the random encounter table of life. Wow!
