A few days ago the temperature went down to the teens, yesterday it went up to almost seventy degrees, now it's down close to freezing. This parallels the fact that a few months ago gasoline cost over four dollars a gallon, and now it's less than two dollars. And let's not even talk about the stock market. What is going on here? Fluctuations abound. Instability seems to be the rule of the day. Chaos rules. Is catastrophe and collapse coming next? Or will there be regression to the mean? Will things settle down? Bubbles punctured, equilibrium punctuated, I think we've all been punked!
