Sunday/ we have a deal (right?)

The first picture is from Saturday Night Live’s skit of a press conference about the debt ceiling negotiations  (featuring a very fresh-faced ‘Harry Reid’ and ‘president Obama’).   And today I watched CNN and MSNBC on and off.    MSNBC finally presented the best information they had about the deal at the end of the day.   Two notes – 1. the deal still has to be ratified by Congress on Monday (just say yes!) and 2. amounts of money measured in trillions of US dollar ($1,000,000,000,000) is surreal.    Several versions of a $1T note are floating on-line; I liked the one with Ben Bernanke best.
