Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

For the last few days, the media has been (as you probably know) reporting that confidence in the economy is down, down, down. (With a gleam in their voice, as if it were all Bush’s fault, no doubt.)

But something they haven’t&#160 been reporting as loudly is that oil, from a high of just a tick over $100/barrel last week or so, had dropped to between $85 and $90.

This morning, as I’m getting ready for work, I’m hearing on the radio that, thanks in part to Bernanke’s 3/4-point interest rate cut, optimism on the economy has rebounded a bit.&#160 And so has the price of oil – to around $88 and change/barrel.

Uh, Ben?&#160 Could I have a little bit more pessimism, please?&#160 Say, about $40/barrel worth?
