AIG Bonuses
Members of Congress are outraged that bailed-out AIG is paying out $165 million in bonuses to the same executives who destroyed the company. It's kind of like when the taxpayers are forced to give pay raises to the same Members of Congress who destroyed the country.

Oil Price Drops
Crude oil prices are down after OPEC decided against cutting production. It would make sense economically, but none of the OPEC countries wants to lay of workers during the annual Al Qaeda/Hamas/Hizbollah job fair.

Best Buy Future
Best Buy is planning to survive the economic downturn by creating more interactive stores, where customers can actually play new videogames or test high-definition video cameras. More consumers are expected to indeed try out the new items at Best Buy... and then actually buy them at Wal-Mart.

Dodger Stadium Job Fair
10,000 people showed up at a job fair at Dodger Stadium Sunday. If you think times are tough for those people at the stadium, just think how rough a day it was for the guys selling the $15 hot dogs.

Missile Problems
A new study shows that the $100 billion missile defense system built by the U.S. to protect Europe still may fail... mostly because it's going to be operated by Europeans.
