8. October, 2008 - Bailed Out

Well, it went through. Blegh.

I wasn’t expecting a bounce in the markets like I remember from 1980, when the dollar went from 14 Austrian schillings the day before the election to 21 the day after, but I was hoping to avoid the further bloodletting that the markets have shown this week. Oh well. It’s not as if I was planning to retire anytime soon anyhow. But it would be nice to have pulled more money out of the markets a month ago for the home improvement projects I want to get done, rather than waiting.

But hey, on the bright side, it gave me an excuse to declare an early opener to Bourbon Season last weekend. So at least there’s that, then.
