Grab bag of what's going on.

The Dow is down 440 pts over the last 2 days, but I suppose the smaller loss today suggests a limit to the garment rending on the market floor. Idle question: Why is the NYSE still in NY? If they moved to Dallas say, they'd have no personal income tax, lower overall taxes, could still operate on EST, saving their employees time and aggravation getting to and from work, and wouldn't have to put up with the mayors and governors of New York.

True Blue Sam has the latest postal match, shooting bottles without the bother of cleaning up the glass. Guess I need to get a sling on the Nylon 66. Results of the last one still haven't been posted at Traction Control, which is probably just as well considering how I shot.

Blogger Fest is still on for tomorrow night. Go here for details.

Harry's Roamers Turkey Run is still on for Saturday, and just in time the weather is changing from sunny and mild to rain mixed with snow. This may well be the first one I don't do in a motorcycle.

Friday:  Partly cloudy, breezy and mild.  Morning lows are forecast to be from 34 to 39 degrees, afternoon highs from 62 to 67 degrees.
Saturday: Mostly cloudy with rain and snow showers possible during the morning and early afternoon.  During the evening snow will develop. Morning lows from 35 to 40 degrees. Afternoon highs 42 to 47 degrees.
Update: Re: Postal match. I missed the results when they came out. It seems I shot better than I thought. Also several really good shooters weren't there.
