Good News. Bad News.
Good news: I'm playing Liberty National today, the new track near the Statue of Liberty that just hosted the Barclays.
Bad news: It's raining.
Good news: The rain might stop by then.
Good news: Other than the really troubling stuff in Iran, no new bad news this weekend. So far.
Bad news: Tomorrow is a holiday for some so trading volume will be light and inconclusive.
I have mixed feelings abot HBO's Bill Maher but I like where he's going with this OpEd piece.
"why has America become a nation that can't make anything bad end, like wars, farm subsidies, our oil addiction, the drug war, useless weapons programs - oh, and there's still 60,000 troops in Germany - and can't make anything good start, like health care reform, immigration reform [or] rebuilding infrastructure."
Leaving each of the above examples aside, the truth of that idea is depressing. We need some radical change, not incremental populist politics.
