Mathematicians at UCLA have discovered a 13-million-digit prime number, a long-sought milestone that makes them eligible for a $100,000 prize...wow, $100,000 for classifying a number the general populace will probably never have use for...economic crisis much?
A Montana Grizzly Bear has been relocated for stealing honey from beehives...Animal activists and Winnie the Pooh fans everywhere are outraged.
Apparently Joe Biden is taking some time to prepare for the VP debates...if he bases his prep time on who his opponent is, I'm thinking half-time during the Redskins game should be sufficient.
The Rescue Bail Out Plan has been revealed. Fortunately, our courageous congress has, through their bi-partisan efforts, drafted some provisions so that Henry Paulson and all else are kept under control, for example:
Curbs will be placed on the compensation of executives at companies that sell mortgage assets to Treasury...Like most curbs on a given sidewalk, these curbs will be easy to step on or over.
An oversight board will be created. This board will consist of members of the Federal Reserve, the Securities Exchange Commission, and all those who were invited to Henry Paulson's last birthday party.
Well, at least now we can all sleep easier!
