The Week In Review

“It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times…” – modern day Charles Dickens.

I really love what I do. I love trading, watching the headlines, mocking Europe and the U.S.A. on a regular basis. Showing before and after weave pictures of Berlusconi’s head has become a personal favorite recently.

We saw Papandreou depart last week and will probably see Berlusconi hit he bricks too, maybe as early as today. This is what the Mafia probably does when they reorganize every few years.  Instead of having a sit down at a social club on Mott Street though, they do it at pretty places like Cannes.

Things hit the fan at Penn State last week. I predict that a generation from now you’re going to see a lot of Penn State sweatshirts at Occupy rallies. If this were a Stephen King story, the school would have been eaten by a giant demon anus by now. Please shut up. Weep for the school if you must, but not Paterno. His silence made him complicit and there isn’t a torture or death strong enough for people who hurt kids.  So get over your idiotic selves. The court drama should be fun and if I was a judge I would eat a giant turkey leg so I could wave it and with a full mouth yell, GUILTY!

Italian bond yields went way up, then they came down. The market went way down on Wednesday then went up on Thursday and Friday. No one believes anything, they just follow the first guy who blinks. News is fluid as always. None of it makes any sense and it’s like meeting a heavy smoker that eats vegan and won’t drink tap water.

The Dept. of Homeland Security announced that it will start showing public service announcements in hotel rooms. Be prepared, as bellboys will now be able to grope you.

Last week scientists found evidence of prostate cancer in a two thousand year old mummy. Let me be the first to wish Larry King a full and speedy recovery.

Politicians continue to pull muscles while reaching new lows and the conversation will move on to the Super Duper Super Committee soon. The globe seems rudderless, yet we manage to wake up every day and fight the good fight.  It’s great fun, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Have a great week.
