A "panel of key analysts" claim that the U.S. in officially in a recession. But you knew that already. The DOW is down 436 points today and (let's face it) things are going to get worse before they get better. Bush said he'd be willing to support more federal intervention to help out rich folk forced to fly coach due to the tanking economy. "I'm sorry it's happening," said the President. Yeah. Thanks. Anyway, from Orpah's mind-numbingly disappointing DIY episode of her annual favorite things episode (a gratitude box, Oprah?) to Ellis Brooks Motors calling it quits, the entire nation is feeling the painful pinch. See you in the bread line.
