Remembering Black Tuesday . . .

I wonder how our candidates will best frame our economic woes.

I keep thinking about how, after Black Tuesday and all, Herbert Hoover promised that prosperity is just around the corner. But it was Roosevelt who first made good use of the radio, that amazing, new technical accomplishment . . .

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

(I always get black Monday and black Tuesday mixed up. Argh.)
