"Pakistan formally informed India of the actions it has taken to address the Mumbai terrorist attacks today, hoping to ease tensions." Well, that's a start.

Well UnDave if you read the article it was a win for Obama because a lot of Congress is still against the package and unhappy with how the money has been used thus far. It was a win because many voted to release the money after reassurances from Obama's financial team that the money would be spent differently and more wisely. Here is an excerpt: The Senate battle revealed a lingering, deep divide over the use of the financial rescue funds, turning at times into a debate over how wisely the Bush administration spent the first $350 billion. Senator Barbara Boxer, a California Democrat, spoke for many members of her party when she said, "If the Bush administration was going to continue to dole out this money, I wouldn't give them $3." But she said that Obama has assured her that "he is going to use these funds in a different way," such as forestalling home foreclosures. "I feel he deserves my trust," she said.

The footage of that rescue was mesmerizing! My 7 year old and I watched it with jaws agape. Wonderful end to what could have been a truly tragic story.

I really commend the commuter ferries that rushed to the scene and the pilot for his amazing landing. I am really happy everyone made it safely.
