It's not ALL bad news.
About that atom-smasher thingie they're going to throw the switch on, tomorrow - if we all get sucked into Negativeland, at least Barack Obama will be going with us. La! Actually, the greater danger may be that we'll all be sucked into a black hole by B.O.'s sheer vacuousness. Vacuity? Vacuosity? Whatevs. That atom-smasher better watch it-- BO'll take it down with the rest of us.
Here's one of my favorite crank-it-up-and-shake-yer-ass songs, Supermassive Black Hole by Muse. Enjoy.
