Remember that part in “The Shining” where Jack types, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” over and over again onto reams of paper? That’s pretty much how I felt today. Instead, rather than that sentence, I feel like typing, “More tariffs and no deal makes Dave an angry elf.” Another headline from the administration about adding more tariffs against China and guess what? Another rough session on Wall Street with stocks coming under serious pressure mid-morning.
