Keeping the Crown Randomosity

  • In what will soon be the biggest crisis facing President Obama, oil sneaks above $60. Retail gasoline prices rose again overnight and are now up nearly 40 percent from the start of the year, while the price for crude on Tuesday topped $60 a barrel for the first time since early November.
  • The nation has no energy policy and no plans to reduce imports of foreign crude.  The world economies are improving, and energy demand will increase.
  • Donald Trump says Miss California Carrie Prejean can keep her crown.  Miss California has been under attack since making her statement on marriage at the Miss USA contest.  "It's the same answer the president of the United States gave; it's the same answer many people gave," Trump said. "She gave an honorable answer; she gave an answer from her heart."
  • General Motors (GM) shares fall to 76-yr low as executives dump stock.  Hey, now that's insider selling to pay attention to!  Bankruptcy around the corner, and most likely the current shares are worthless.
  • Was at the dentist this morning getting a temporary crown.  Fun?  No way, Jose.  Not even close to fun.
  • Playing with RSS Player for the iPhone.  Nice podcast player.  Can skip ahead through downloaded podcasts in 30-second increments.  Better than holding down the FF button forever trying to advance, and praying that you don't double-clutch and FF to the end of the podcast and have to start over!
  • Financials down again. 
  • Volume was light yesterday, FWIW.  Not sure about the numbers today. 
  • Waiting for glue to dry before I can eat.  Last crown I had popped off, so being more careful this time.  LOL.
