It's Deja News All Over Again...by Sybil Adelman Sage

Our newspaper wasn't delivered this morning, but I don't need it to know what's going on.

Wall Street is a disaster, which McCain, of the 18 homes, is attributing to greed. There's a new book criticizing someone in the administration, this time it's Cheney. We're in danger of electing people who rely on instinct and prayer, bragging that they don't blink though there's reason to blink. Political ads are deliberately misleading. Gas prices are ridiculously high. Hurricane victims are desperately waiting for help. Bloomingdale's is having a mattress sale. Casey Anthony, mother of the missing Florida girl, is back in jail. And O.J. Simpson is in court being tried.

Maybe they decided not to publish today, figuring we can leaf through old papers and see what's happening.
