That tornado storm has now moved into second place on the list of deadliest outbreaks in U.S. history. Latest numbers range from 332 to 337 depending on which report you get. I had thought that it couldn't possibly reach the first ranked tornado outbreak (700+ deaths) until I read that more than 400 people are still missing--in Tuscaloosa alone.
This article from Market Watch surprised me. I have noticed that under the boosterism of most of the economic media there are undertones of unease and pessimism--but not often and not so outspoken.
