Straight talking American icon Willie Nelson today told a national radio show that he thought the twin towers were imploded like condemned Las Vegas casino buildings, as the country music superstar forcefully voiced his doubts about the official 9/11 story.

Agreeing with host Alex Jones that he questioned the official story, Nelson elaborated, “I saw those towers fall and I’ve seen an implosion in Las Vegas – there’s too much similarities between the two, and I saw a building fall that didn’t get hit by nothing,” added Nelson, referring to WTC Building 7 which collapsed in the late afternoon of September 11

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — Stocks tanked Tuesday, after a report showing a big slowdown in the services sector of the economy and cautionary comments from a Fed president amplified fears that a recession is underway or imminent.

The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) lost about 370 points, seeing its worst one-day point loss since mid-October. The decline equaled a drop of 2.9%.

The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 (SPX) index lost 44 points, its worst single-day point loss in almost 6 months. The decline equaled a drop of 3.2%.

The Nasdaq composite (COMP) fell 73 points and saw its worst single-day point loss since mid-October. The decline equaled a drop of 2.6%.

“The pebble in the pond this morning was the ISM report and then the comments from [Fed President] Lacker came out and that kind of pushed people over the edge,” said Kim Caughey, senior equity analyst at Fort Pitt Capital Partners.

“This is a very volatile time, everyone is nervous and the volatility shows the degree of nervousness,” Caughey added.

Stocks tumbled in January, with the Nasdaq seeing its worst start to the year ever, on fears that the credit and housing market crises will send the economy into recession, if it isn’t there already.

Note to McCain: comedy is hard

I’m curious, if one of these days, John McCain’s acerbic sense of humor might get him into a little trouble. In 1998, for example, at a Republican Senate fundraiser, McCain thought he was very clever when he told a nasty, tasteless joke about Chelsea Clinton, describing the president’s daughter as “ugly,” and suggesting that Janet Reno is a man. More recently, he was asked how soon we can go to war with Iran. McCain, trying to be funny, starting singing “Bomb Iran” to the tune of the Beach Boys’ “Barbara Ann.”Yesterday morning, the senator, apparently doing another stand-up routine, but didn’t get too much laughter with this material:

“[After introducing former Sen. Phil Gramm of Texas], and from the great state of South Carolina, Sen. Lindsey Graham. After this meeting, if you’d like to talk to senator, either senator Graham, we will provide translators for any of you that need to, find them hard to understand. I find them hard to — anyway….

I’m trying to imagine what the reaction would be if Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, campaigning in “liberal Massachusetts,” mocked people with Southern accents and suggested his audience might need interpreters to understand those from South Carolina.

I realize McCain was trying to be clever, just as he was when he started singing “Bomb Iran” or when he maliciously went after Chelsea Clinton. I suspect there are going to plenty of people who hear all of this and say, “Lighten up; he was just kidding around.” Maybe so.

But my point isn’t to be up-tight about bad comedy; my point is that John McCain’s comedic styles are going to get him into some political trouble one of these days. Mocking southerners for their accents seems like he’s playing with fire.
