A bit of good news from Bloomberg. Customers are delaying orders of fighter planes. Peace and love to everyone.

Nice plunge on the hang seng. I guess Asia didn't buy that 400 point Dow rally.

Here's what happened. For the last 10 years we provided too much grease and we slipped. To protect the people, we'll be greasing them even more.

Maybe we just whipsaw for a week or two which I believe was the case after the '87 crash.

Great news! My wife's family runs a used aircraft part company. I refer to it as high-tech Sanford & Son. He doesn't find that so funny. :lol:

Existing planes will need refurbished parts if they're not going to buy new ones. I guess there are a few recession-proof companies out there.
