VETERAN’S DAY (BELATEDLY)
Let me be the last to make note of Veteran’s Day 2011 with two stories. The first is the story of Mitt Romney’s plan to make life harder for vets by privatizing their health care. Paul Krugman tells that story for the New York Times, here:
Oh, boy. Mitt Romney […]
I hope you get your friends the Levins together – or just one of them, really — and read this today with a Levin at eleven past eleven – 11:11 on 11/11/11.
I’m as childish as anyone else when it comes to this stuff.
I have other things to say – I almost sort of […]
IF YOU’RE IN NEW YORK TONIGHT
Vicky Tiel gowns usually fetch $5,000 to $8,000. Tonight, she will be presenting her bridge line, a collaboration with Kenneth Nolan, at discount prices for one night only at Charles Nolan, 30 Gansevoort Street, from 6:00 to 9:00. Now you can own a Vicky Tiel for $250 […]
WHAT ONE REPUBLICAN THINKS – NOT PRETTY
One hopes it’s unfair to post this clip, because, one hopes, she is – in her ignorance and certitude – representative of almost no one. And yet, sadly, that is just not the case. Thanks to Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck (whom she credits), among others, […]
IF YOU OWN BOREALIS, YOU WILL ENJOY THIS STORY
El Al announced it has signed a letter of intent to become WheelTug’s launch customer. That doesn’t mean it will actually happen, or that they’ll get certified – the list of caveats is long. But with this news, WheelTug – and thus its parent […]
THE ROMNEY ECONOMIC PLAN
He says he doesn’t advocate a dime of further tax cuts for the rich.
Yet he proposes to cut the estate tax.
Which applies only to the rich.
And he doesn’t propose to cut it just a smidgen.
Or even just a skoche.
He proposes to cut it from the […]
NFL COMISH GIVES GAYS $1 MILLION
Well, sort of. This is actually pretty great: “Former NFL Commissioner Paul J. Tagliabue and his wife, Chandler Tagliabue, have donated $1 million to Georgetown University for the creation of a new program to assist LGBT students.”
My outlook is rosy, but Microsoft decided to reload 60,000+ emails into my Outlook (capital O, trademarked) — no way to stop it, like the Sorcerer’s Apprentice battling brooms — and when that finished and I found a $24 program that would seek out and delete them, and installed and launched it . . .

IS OUR NAME MUD?
GLDD had a good quarter dredging mud (here) and the stock actually closed up yesterday (12%), as did a few of our others (NBIX was up 16%*). This, even as the Dow dropped 297 points on the surprise from Greece and the MF Global bankruptcy.
So our little […]
Shares plunged yesterday on misinterpreted news that creates a buying opportunity but only with money you can truly afford to lose. I bought more at $5.20. If I weren’t a late sleeper, I might have paid as little as $4.53.
