Spotted on a church sign on the lawn outside a Baptist church in North Carolina this past weekend: SIGN OUT OF ORDER. COME INSIDE FOR MESSAGE. They get points for creativity.
Those of you looking for new standards of measurement for the economy might be interested in this piece in TIME. It's not quite the CPI, but it's interesting. We'll also take a moment, as we did on last night's broadcast, to remember William Safire. Bill was a panelist on several "Meet The Press" broadcasts that I hosted, as we used to say, "for the vacationing Tim Russert." Like the rest of us, he was an enormous fan of Tim's, and I held him in high regard as a fellow college drop-out. We hope you can join us for tonight's broadcast.
