No one ever said economic forecasting was easy:
On the last day of February 2007, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told Congress that "the fundamentals are very strong" for the U.S. economy.
And about those problems starting to show up in the housing market? "We don't see it as being a broad financial concern or a major factor in assessing the course of the economy," he said back then.
Singer Davy Jones, of The Monkees, died Wednesday at the age of 66. A spokesman for the singer said he died of a heart attack. NPR's John Donvan remembers the pop star who sang lead in hits like "Daydream Believer."

Davy Jones, who thrilled many a young girl's heart back in the '60s as a member of the Monkees, has died.
TMZ broke the news. It reports being told by the medical examiner's office in Martin County, Fla., of the 66-year-old singer's death. The English-born Jones apparently lived in that part of Florida.
