Perhaps the market is indeed trying to digest what an Obama presidency and a unified single party Democratic government will mean for 2009.

We’re glad to hear everything went fine when Neil Fallon went under the knife the other day.

He’s already in recovery mode at home, he reports online.

The surgery went down yesterday.

On Twitter, Fallon expressed a newfound appreciation for morphine.

“Why, yes! Yes it does! The chocolate pudding does go well with the morphine!,” he wrote.

Later: “Surgery went well. Back at home. Morphine’s worn off. Last tweet…not so much haha hehe now.”

After fans started chiming in, he wrote, “Thanks for so many well wishes and I will see you all down the road.”
