Psssst! Hey, did you know that we were in a recession? It MUST be true! I saw it on CNN.com!
Of course the Wizards of the Obvious in Atlanta have also been saying that we were on the verge of a major economic downturn since the beginning of the Bush administration. Now they've got what they wanted. I hope they're happy.
What's utterly amazing about this is that once it's "official" that we're in a recession, the Dow decided to drop another 600+ points. It's like a man is having desperate pains in his chest and arms, but until a doctor comes by and says, "You're having a heart attack," it isn't really real.
