On Iced Out: The End is Near--the Medal Count, Less So

And despite (because of?) Copyranter's questioning of spine and manhood generally, Crosby scores the OT gold medal winning goal! Best game of hockey I've seen in a while.

Yet the whiny bitch scored the OT Olympic-winning goal :-)

On The Great Dentist Crisis! Is It?

On Internet Once Again Obviates Need For Arithmetic

It would at least cancel the automatic fail I assign to someone who asks me for Facebook address (or whatever one has on Facebook)

On The Great Goldman Sachs Senate-Lobbying Fail

Actually, re-reading that document, the thing that strikes me the most is not the comments on short selling. Rather it's their position that brokers should pay more for co-location (putting computers actually in the exchange to execute algorithmic trading more efficiently) and that there should be restrictions on flash orders.

Both these activities are potentially much more destabilising than short selling and restrictions on them stand to hit GS in the pocket.

Agreed that it's a simplistic piece but can't quite see the outrage

On Gluttony with Mary HK Choi: Milkis & Calpico

I was walking around Battery Park the other day and saw an empty box of Oseki One Cups (available in vending machines all over Tokyo). Ahh the memories !

On The Great Goldman Sachs Senate-Lobbying Fail

"For a GS lobby effort that memo looks SHOCKINGLY guilty of being absurdly simplified, no?"

Consider the intended audience ...

Ahh yes. Something that tasted almost, but not entirely unlike chocolate, as I recall.
