Donald Trump: Jeanine Pirro calls for Paul Ryan to resign
By Naomi Tajitsu and Maki Shiraki TOKYO (Reuters) - After three decades building an airplane from scratch, Michimasa Fujino, 56, chief engineer of the Hondajet, might have to reach a ripe old age to see Honda Motor Co's pet aviation project recoup its development costs.

Don't get lulled into thinking the major market selloff on Tuesday was a one-off. Without question, the fact stocks didn't fall through a trap door on Wednesday was a feather in the caps of the bulls. All the elements were in place for a follow-through plunge: a vicious, cowardly attack out front of the U.K. Parliament, rising fears on the Trump/Ryan healthcare bill passing and a growing number of forecasters coming out from under their rocks to proclaim the bull market is about to die. Not helping matters was a continued drumbeat of retail death stories such as Payless possibly closing 500 stores, Bebe (BEBE) on the verge of shuttering 170 stores and Sears Holdings' (SHLD) CFO spreading #fakenews
