SNL Palin Skit, Dow Tumbles, Lich King and Weekend Box Office

SNL Palin Skit - The lovely Tina Fey made a guest appearance on SNL's premiere episode to do a spot on impression of Sarah Palin. The skit has Palin and Clinton talking about sexism in politics. Worth watching regardless of politics. If you’re just interested in voting for a woman, screw the issues, you really should watch it. Might learn something.

Stocks Take A Pounding - The Dow drops 504 points, the largest since September 17, 2001. Where that drop was from the attacks, this drop was a result of the credit crisis. Two new casualties include the 158 year old firm Lehman Brothers (bankruptcy) and Merrill Lynch which sold itself to Bank of America for $50 billion. Basically these and other banks that survived the Depression learned they could not survive the Bush Presidency.

WOW: Wrath of the Lick King Dated - It is official; the next expansion for the World of Warcraft will be released on November 13th. It will include a collector's edition similar to the two previous releases.

Weekend Box Office - The numbers for the weekend are out. Burn after Reading (a pointless boring movie) took in $19.4M, The Family That Preys took $18M, Righteous Kill (predictable, maybe rentable) took in $16.5M, the Woman was 4th with $10M, and finally The House Bunny took in another $4.3M.
