    And so we come full circle in the Era of Hope and Change. Originally campaigning as an anti-interventionist and an internationalist, Barack Obama will address the nation to argue for starting a new war unilaterally — and to argue that the UN is useless.

    Gov. Pat Quinn is off target in his bid to rewrite a bill that would allow Illinoisans to carry concealed firearms. Last week, and with only a week before a federal court deadline requiring the state to approve a concealed carry law, Quinn issued an amendatory veto of House Bill 183, the legislation passed in May by the Illinois General Assembly in an attempt to meet the court's mandate. Even though the bill was approved by wide margins in both the Illinois House and Senate, Quinn's amendatory veto sends the measure back to legislators with significant changes that the governor...

    Market watchers and technical analysts have often pointed out that financial markets often turn-around, in one direction or the other, on Tuesdays, specifically at about 10:15am. So, if history repeats itself and the pattern holds true, perhaps we will see a bounce tomorrow and a rally to a lower high in the stock market (a short-term high that is lower than the high in stock prices set back in July, hence a lower high). Technical analysts look at the cycles, trends and movement of markets in price and time, which is different from fundamental analysis which focuses on the underlying...

Reaction was fascinating in both its scope and its idiocy.
