The Dow Jones industrial average suffered its second 500-plus point drop in as many days yesterday and the selloff knocked the broader Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index into official correction mode for the first time since 2011. The Dow’s closing point loss of 586.53 points, or 3.56%, to 15,873.22, was its 8th worse one-day point loss in history and worst daily point decline since Aug 8, 2011. So what are we looking at today? Perhaps overseas markets will provide a hint.

Several months ago, with her apparent strangle-hold on the Democratic nomination for president, the talk of Vice President Joseph Biden running against Hillary Clinton faded away. But now, which Clinton seemingly having issues igniting enthusiasm from her base, email security issues, and perhaps some further introspection following the death of his son, Biden is apparently taking another look. This past weekend, a meeting with Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Rick discusses what to make of this renewed Biden for President talk.

It happened yet again on Sunday, this time at Wrigley Field, as a fan hit by a foul ball had to be taken from the stadium in a stretcher. After a seemingly stark increase in such incidents a ballparks, perhaps as more and more fans are distracted by smartphones, Major League baseball players are calling for enhanced safety measures to protect those in the stands. In July, a class-action lawsuit was filed in federal court in San Francisco seeking to have the MLB install protective netting down the baselines. That lawsuit came after a woman struck by a piece of a broken bat during a game at Fenway Park suffered life-threatening injuries.
