Lordy Lucre

When you woke up yesterday morning to the news that Britain had been bombed, what was your first thought? And was it anything like Brit Hume's first thought?:

"I mean, my first thought when I heard -- just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, 'Hmmm, time to buy."

By way of excusing, Mr. Hume let me note that in a crisis, many people find solace in their religion. And we can guess what Mr. Hume worships.
