• Egypt mourns as soccer riot death toll rises to 79: "Egyptians began three days of mourning Thursday for the 79 people who perished at a violent soccer riot, as the nation's fledgling parliament erupted in anger over the national tragedy."

• American Airlines to cut 13,000 jobs: "American Airlines told its unions Wednesday it plans to cut 13,000 jobs from the staff of 88,000 at the nation's No. 3 airline. The cuts will fall most heavily on the airline's maintenance operations, which will lose 4,600 jobs."

Planned job cuts for the month of January totaled 53,486, according to a report from outplacement consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That's a 28% increase from December and the highest total since the 116,000 cuts announced in September."

    The show last night featuring Suzie Orman was interesting but I was deeply disappointed int he overly patriot tone the show adopted. Suzie was building a compelling case for why "Americans are broken" and she is correct. In fact the nation has been compromised for some time now but the exogenous shock of a recession has amplified our weakness. The nation is broken mainly because the people are broken. All that we see in the political and economic arena are a reflection of the broken American essence. There will be little hope for any real recovery without repeating the events that have led to this recession unless we are alot more introspective. I was saddened to see that your show would not even entertain the notion that American's are deeply flawed. It seems no one can indict Americans for not being great any longer and so the illusion of "greatness" is maintained. By doing this, we loose a profound opportunity to evaluate our flaws and grow from it...
