GOT TWO MINUTES?
This video makes me wonder whether Mitt Romney will really win the Republican nomination. It obviously won’t be Perry or Cain or Bachmann (or Paul, who at least deserves respect for his principled, if to my mind mostly wrong-headed, views). Will it be Gingrich? Huntsman?

WHAT THE OTHER SIDE IS SAYING – I
I gave $500 to Steve Forbes’ 1996 presidential campaign – I’m a Forbes Family Fan – because I thought he might elevate the Republican debate (sadly, no) and $500 to my great friend Mike Huffington’s 1992 congressional race (remember moderate Republicans?) . . . and have […]

Have I mentioned this before? (Google says yes – 246 times, going back to 2003.) Well, obviously none of this is original with me; but it’s taking wing – and taken to the streets. Watch Rachel on Occupy Wall Street and how our Republican friends are dead set against doing what […]
I have Outlook on the run. It’s a simple matter of switching to a brand new computer and starting from scratch . . . very carefully . . . with a brand new Microsoft Office 2010. By Monday I could be out of computer hell and fully functioning.
But can I just say […]
The world may be ending, but Borealis is $4, I have a vague strategy for getting out of computer hell, I got an empty seat next to me on the flight back from Chicago (by moving to the very last row of the plane after they closed the doors), and I found my new

Quote of the Day
Years ago, in the Carter term, a stockbroker tried to explain what Schlumberger did. 'It goes to 100,' the broker said, exaggerating only a little bit. 'Then it splits three-for-two and goes back to 100 again.'~GRANT'S Interest Rate Observer
