We first bought this tiny domestic oil and gas exploration company at $4.50 four years ago. It closed last night at $14.72 (having touched $15.30 mid-day). I’m holding mine, but I want you to sell a third of yours so that from now on ‘you’re playing with house money.’ If only I had had the sense to suggest the same with FMD ($13.26 last night) when it hit $56.
Not a stock, a berry. I don’t own any Bolthouse Farms (a private company?) but I sure drink a lot of their juice. The ‘vedge’ variety is great – a cross between tomato and V8. The two new acai varieties, one with pomegranate and one with mangosteen, are terrific. I don’t see those two on the Bolthouse website, so maybe they’re still in test markets only. But if you find them, try them. (Like a guy: straight out of the container.)
How sad to see democracy snuffed out in Russia. Frontline tells the story. If you have 21 minutes, take a look. If nothing else, it reminds us never to take our freedom of speech, or of the press, for granted. And to be fearful of the decline in hard-hitting journalism. Where was our press these past seven years?
WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY, JR.
There was so much I thought he was wrong about; but what a man he was. Frighteningly intellectual, prolific, consequential, mischievous – and gracious. Father to a wonderful son. And a eulogist at the funeral a quarter century ago of Al Lowenstein, who was as brilliantly liberal as Buckley was brilliantly conservative . . . a eulogy that spoke well of them both. May he rest in peace.
Quote of the Day
Burn down your cities and leave our farms, and your cities will spring up again as if by magic; but destroy our farms and the grass will grow in the streets of every city in the country.~William Jennings Bryan
