Today's Five O'Clock Rock (Episode 66)

Ah, crap.
Year of the Ox looking very un-bullish, seers say (IHT)
Chinese soothsayers see a deepening recession, millions more losing their jobs, and stocks and home prices continuing to fall. ... [S]ome fortunetellers are throwing in other dire predictions — massive earthquakes, rising U.S.-Russian tensions and trouble for President Barack Obama. ... Obama, born in the Year of the Ox, is taking office in a particularly bad year for his Chinese astrological sign. ... Obama also is the 44th president, a number the Chinese deem extremely unlucky, because "four" is pronounced the same as "death" in Chinese.
