Times are tough all over, not just here in the US. Yesterday, the Chinese government laid off the entire second grade!
(OK, so I borrowed that from Leno last night...)
Speaking of Leno, did anyone else watch John McCain on there? He was great. Even if you didn't vote for him, he's hard not to like. Very engaging, funny, and no one...I mean no one... loves this country more than him. The story he told at the end about the cell mate and the homemade American flag was beautiful & touching. If you can find the interview on YouTube or at NBC.com, its worth your time.
