Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Way to overstate the story.

MSNBC is all aflutter, because a bogus AP Twitter feed reported that the White House had been bombed, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average took a sudden but brief drop, before recovering.

Yeah, it took a little dip. But look:
This looks really bad, until you note the scale on the left.
Pardon my French, but Whoopie Shit.

With the average at over 14,600, the Dow lost 140, briefly. That's less than a 1% drop. If you were watching an analog dial, you would barely have noticed the needle drop.

Mountains.

Mole hills.
