777

OMG, isn’t that, like, a sign of the Apocalypse?

Above: From the NYTimes, the day in digits. The Dow lost 777 points today after a failed vote in the US House of Representatives. Was heißt failed?

It was rejected 228-205 (NYTimes figures…).

If last Monday was Lunes Negro, then this is Lunes Loco. Iron Maiden famously regaled us with their contention that “Six…six, six,” was “the number of the beast,” but this is too much, non ? Thankfully, there is that extra set of digits, .68, which lead away from this cynical conclusion.

Schluck. What will the papers say, in the morning?
