Market Mayhem

CNN: Stocks skidded this afternoon, with the Dow's nearly 778-point drop being the worst single-day point loss ever, after the House rejected the government's $700 billion bank bailout plan. The day's loss knocked out approximately $1.2 trillion in market value, the first post-$1 trillion day ever, according to a drop in the Dow Jones Wilshire 5000, the broadest measure of the stock market.

$1.2 TRILLION lost because Repub's & Dem's couldn't agree.

Today was the biggest NET change in History, however it didn't even rank in the TOP 10 for Percentage change.

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!

It's frightening to see how inept our leaders seem to be.
