Susan Z. recommended this piece of commentary by Adrian Douglas: Bond market collapse is imminent. My own opinion is a bit different: I think that bonds will hold up for several more months, since so much money is presently being yanked out of the equities market by both individual and institutional investors. They need to re-invest that money somewhere. In the long run, however, bonds are doomed along with stocks and everything else that is denominated in US Dollars. When the currency unit itself is wiped out, everybody caught holding The Old Maid loses.

Susan Z. also sent us the link to a great audio clip of Reverend Dr, S.M. Lockridge expounding on the sovereignty of God. Rousing stuff! I wish that more preachers spoke so forthrightly.
