It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

I could have warned the National Hurricane Center that putting a cartoon character's name -- in this case Kyle from 'South Park' -- on the Hurricane name list almost guaranteed it would be a bad one. And Kyle's got a 5% chance of hitting New York City with Tropical Storm force winds some time in the next five days.

With the bailout failing, the Pakistan responding military to our incursions from Afghanistan, WaMu failing into JPMorgan, GE cutting its profit outlook by 3.5 billion dollars, and presidential candidate John McCain trying actually to leave the race, things can start seeming a little shaky. But, cherish these days of global chaos! They're so much more distant and abstract than days of local chaos.
