What if the dryer has been stealing all of our clothes this whole time, but we only notice the socks because they come in pairs.

At this point my blood type is probably alcohol.

Now The Market Report . . .

Consumer prices rose 0.2% in September, mainly due to a sharp increase in used car prices. Inflation still remains below the Fed’s target of 2.0%, which helps rates remain low. 
Producer prices also rose in September. The increase was more than expected amid a surge in costs for traveler accommodation services. It was the 1st year-on-year gain since March.
Jobless claims unexpectedly increased last week, coming in at 898,000. The increase could heighten fears that the pandemic is inflicting lasting damage to the labor market.
Record high lumber prices are driving up new home prices. Recent spikes in lumber have added more than $16,000 to the typical cost of a new single-family home.
The pandemic is reversing a long-standing preference by renters for urban locations. Instead, rentals are surging in suburban markets, where renters with no commute can afford larger spaces.
Rising home prices translate into higher down payment requirements, making purchases harder on first-time buyers. The median home price is now $350,000, up from $312,000 a year ago.
“The most interesting things happen just on the other side of your comfort zone.”
