* Supreme Court justices decided not to rewrite or ignore the Constitution (ala Roe v. Wade), and that Americans DO have the right to bear arms. Woo! (they weren't getting mine either way). The case was the culmination of a suit against the District of Columbia brought by Dick Anthony Heller, a 65 year-old security guard who's application for a home protection firearm was denied.

* Yay! The DOW was up over 400 points in the stock market rally! Maybe I will be able to retire when I'm 80 after all! (no thanks to hockey, parochial schools, and my 3 boys eating habits)
