10 Headlines from Today

In no particular order...

  1. Someone may end up a billionaire today (or a multi-billionaire if the lottery hits at the end of the week).  I don't play the lottery and I think winning such a large amount would be more negative than positive, but someone will end up with a windfall soon.  Cautionary tales here.
  2. This mom may have prevented a school shooting.  If you see something, say something.
  3. Thousands of migrants are headed for the US.  That looks like a coming invasion to me.
  4. The Khashoggi murder was the "worst cover up ever".  I would think that honor goes to the 9/11 cover up, the Vegas mass shooting cover up, or any of these.
  5. Arizona cancels vaccination program after backlash from anti-vaxers.  So social media-inspired stupidity now trumps science???  smh
  6. Early voting has started.  Get out and vote!
  7. In climate change news, an entire island was wiped off the map.  That doesn't bode well.
  8. It's a sad state of affairs when some of our longest-running merchants (Sears and KMart) fold up shop.
  9. I think former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker is spot on in this interview.  "We're in a hell of a mess everywhere" kind of sums up things quite concisely. 
  10. In more positive news, it's World Series time.  Go Sox!
