Some Perspective

  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets
  • “T is for Trespass” by Sue Grafton
  •  “I Am America (And so can you!)” by Stephen Colbert
  • San Diego Chargers – 23, Denver Broncos – 3
  • My wife and I did not have any children (and, I assume, we both got a solid 8 hours of sleep).

These were, in order, the top grossing movie, the #1 books on the New York Times Fiction and Non-Fiction Best-Seller Lists, the score of a professional football game, and my family status on December 24, 2007.

In addition to be being Christmas Eve, the date also marked the last time the weekly closing value of the S&P 500 Index was higher than today’s close of 1,459.99.
