I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

And how great is the economy?
Dow off for year
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Stocks tumbled in volatile trading on Tuesday, with the Dow erasing its gains for the year, as higher-than-expected inflation data stoked interest rate worries.

Investors sold off shares of interest-rate sensitive financial stocks, like Citigroup Inc. (NYSE:C - news) and JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM - news). Shares of energy stocks like Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE:XOM - news) also slumped as crude futures finished $2 a barrel lower on forecasts that Wednesday's U.S. inventory data will show another increase in fuel supplies.

Markets also felt pressure from a global equities sell-off.
