    Breathed couldn’t have intentionally made the time the way it was.

    Could happen again in a few days in Congress doesn’t get it together. There goes my 401(k).

    Actually the strip is from November 19, 1987, a month after the fact. So it is no coincidence.

    History repeats itself.

    We learn three lessons from the study of History:

    History repeats itself.
    History never repeats itself.
    No one applies the lessons History teaches.

    Congress does make it easier to time the market. Works even better when they make 3 month deals.

    No, actually it’s from November 16, 1987 (your link ends in 6, not 9, and P2 has 11-16, not 11-19).

    I was in HS when this happened and my teacher held up a paper with the headline about the market crashing and said “Anyone remember when we read ‘The Grapes of Wrath’?”

    Graduated from college the year after this, right into the middle of the George HW Bush Memorial Recession, seams like we’ve never really recovered entirely from that event.
