Obama Feels their Pain
President Obama says he sympathizes with the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters in New York. He likes how they keep bashing the brokers and the banks, but he can't understand why they don't also ask them for big campaign donations.

Solyndra Scape Goat
The Department of Energy official in charge of the loan program that gave that money to Solyndra has stepped down... he's now getting a job signing overpriced free agents for the New York Yankees.

Split this Bill!
President Obama now says he wants each part of his $447 billion jobs bill to be voted on separately in Congress... that should give local cities and unions the 17 more years they'll need to get "shovel ready."

Knox Reunion?
The family of Amanda Knox has invited her former boyfriend, Raffaele Sollecito, to Seattle for a reunion... they just want him to come unarmed, late at night and not tell anyone where he's going.

Sarandon Hypocrisy
Just as Susan Sarandon joined the anti-corporate protesters in Lower Manhattan, a huge billboard of her endorsing a Japanese clothing chain that uses sweat shop Chinese labor has gone up in Midtown. Perhaps Sarandon was protesting the fact that there just aren't enough jobs for eight-year-old Chinese kids.

October 7th

1912: The Helsinki Stock Exchange sees its first transaction... but it involves a trader and hooker in the bathroom.

1916: Georgia Tech defeats Cumberland University 222-0... and you should see what they did to their cheerleaders after the game.

1982: Cats opens on Broadway and runs for nearly 18 years before everyone finally realizes the whole show is stupid.
