When the BBC actually mentions the stock market, you know it must be horrid. In general, one would never actually know there is a stock market anywhere in the world if your news source was limited to BBC online. It is actually a refreshing thing not to have it considered part of one's daily life. Today, "Stocks plunge on Financial Fears" is planted in the dot-center. I do remember tuning into the BBC news one evening last year on one of the larger plunge days to hear the market news. They said, "Markets are down across the world. And now, the sports news." Or something to that effect.
When London had bombings a few years ago, much the same happened. "Bombs have gone off in several London locations. And now, back to the cricket".
So, with the market news front and center, what is a girl to think? Clearly, it is time to think about cricket. Or, tennis, or Dylan Thomas, or fashion.
On a day when most of the world markets are down between 4-6%, AIG is up. On that note, back to the cricket...
