Because I am the main character

More commute magic. I went to the bus stop a few minutes early. I waited until fifteen minutes past the time. Then I said to the voice in my head: "The only thing that works now is to walk away slowly." So I walked away very slowly without looking back. Then suddenly I turned around, and there was the bus. Magic! It is like umbrella and rain.

There was a black woman with a child who came running so the bus could not drive off without me. I sprinted back to the bus stop before they were on board. It took a longer way to the city, but I still was less than half an hour delayed.

More adventures of the main character as they happen! You should try it - rumor has it that everyone is the main character of their own life. Do something main character like and see what happens!

Luck of the Dark One

I have to say, the timing could not have been much better for Obama if God had been a Democrat. The uncontrolled meltdown happens while people still perceive the Republicans as being in power (never mind that Congress is thoroughly Democrat and traders are already adjusting to the near-certainty of a Democrat president as well). At the same time, the meltdown comes so late that Obama has had time to make huge, unrealistic promises he won't have to keep. Once the election is over, he can break them all because of the special circumstances. When there is no money, no one can hold it against him.
