Now the cleanup

I'm reminded of days of yore in the Arkansas legislature, before the ascendancy of the Death Star, when the grownups in the Senate would fix the mess caused by the hotheads in the House.

Senators are vowing today to produce a bailout plan.

An NYT columnist notes that, while the market is relatively calm today, it doesn't mean that short-term action isn't required. Yes, it's required even if there's some justification for sentiment such as that expressed yesterday (photo) in the sign waved briefly yesterday on Wall Street. This gallows humor photograph is racing around financial offices.

I thought this was a useful Q&A (link fixed) on this week's events and individual investment strategy.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
