Sorry I haven't posted in quite awhile (in case you noticed), but I was on vacation (skiing in Steamboat Springs, CO) and then, on my return, found that the thing I feared most next to the plane crashing did indeed happen - my laptop with my whole financial world on it had crashed, requiring my undivided attention for several days. I will post about both these tonight. The time was not a complete waste, however, as the Anna Nicole Smith affair has apparently been resolved to the full satisfaction of the media. For some reason, her finally being buried was the signal to stop the 24/7 coverage, even though the paternity issue, which I would have thought to be the one somewhat interesting aspect of the story since half-a-billion dollars are at stake, is still unresolved. Anyway, to make up, I pledge to post everyday this week, no matter how uninteresting the topic or irrelevant and uninformed my commentary.
