Ups and Downs of the Week

Red Sox – Finally playing like the team we were, (ahem) promised. Aside from missing starting pitchers, they’re firing on all cylinders now. Still can’t seem to gain much ground on the Yankees, though.

Nightmare in Norway – There are nutcases everywhere. This one is a particularly sick animal, though. Wonder which rock he crawled out from under.

Debt Ceiling – Just work out a deal and be done with it. Stop playing chicken with the economy. It’s in bad enough shape as it is.
