Irony in the Headlines

The following headline arrived in my mailbox this morning:

Stocks Slump on Gloomy Economic Omens; Dow Sheds 733 Points

If there was ever an indication that the stock markets work on emotion rather than logic, this headline says it all. Omens? Didn't superstitious people in the middle ages see everything as an "omen" of something or another??

Sheep more likely - there more of them, and they're not as bright as goats...
