Widening gyre: U.S. stocks up and down after global selloff.

Loosed upon the world: The anger of the Republican rally.

I always admire the pithyness of the "Morning News" posts, but this is pretty much my favorite of the last 2 years. Bravo!

The it's is a transcription error. More Yeats, please.

Fixed the it's. Thanks, all! (I'm duly embarrassed.)
