Th Dow has dropped about 4,000 points in the last year and three quarters, and ditto for NASDAQ (the percentage is horrific for NASDAQ, merely horrible for the Dow). State governments are sweating out the downturn. The federal govt. is in deficit again. In my town businesses are closing all over the place. So Rush doesn't think there's anything wrong with the economy and that the earnings trouble of Apple (one of two computer firms that actually made a profit this past quarter) is entirely caused by Jobs' liberal leaning. <br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"
