The Dow Jones: Monday Morning Coming Down

That was a fun weekend. Lots of Sarah Palin and Tina Fey. Also bailout packages that navigated the tricky waters of Congress all the way to the Oval Office where it was lickety-split signed by President Bush. However! A Monday morning reality check may be in order courtesy of the home page of the New York Times, which is currently running yet another graph. That’s because the Dow has dipped below 10,000 for the first time in four years. The markets in Europe seem to be in some sort of free fall and Americans have stopped shopping. Not surprisingly there are some who believe this is all, at least in part, the media’s fault.
