Not exactly the world's best Spring Break so far... more like a bad '80s teen beach comedy. But second-half rallies have happened before and they can always happen again (unless you're an incurable cynic), so keep those fingers crossed...

The Peanut Gallery groaned so loud they could hear them upstairs at Y&R. Shows what they know sometimes!

Then again, if Pay the Rent can be solved and It's In the Bag won, both in the same week, why not have fortune favor this foolish game too? No reason why it can't.
