Michelle Malkin asks, "Wasn't the bailout supposed to calm the markets?"
I mean, that's what they told us--that the bailout would prevent another "huge" (eight percent, about 800 point) drop in the Dow, that it would add stability and have a calming effect.
Instead, the first business day after the thing is passed, there's more panic and volatility rather than less, and the Dow has dropped to a level it hasn't been at since 2004.
Yeah, that worked. Thanks, morons.

But at least I have started torrenting (?) the following series:
Rosario+Vampire Capu 2
Clannad After Story
Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka
Kyou no Go no Ni
I am still waiting for ef-a tale of melodies, Hyakko, and Yozakura Quartet. No biggie there. I've got all of Itazura na Kiss, ToLOVEru, and...uh...something else I can't remember right now to keep me occupied. Also, I've got other series that I'm watching and/or rewatching, anyway.

Best Buy has an Acer laptop on sale for $400. I have $350 in the laptop fund, but I decided I'm going to stick with my original plan and get either a Dell or a Gateway.
Right now I'm leaning towards "Dell". Target employees get a discount, since Target uses Dell computers, and I like my old Inspiron; I'm only replacing it because I want something that can actually be used cordless more than once per battery.
But the decision is not hard-and-fast, and won't be until the moment I actually make the purchase. Always in motion is the future.
