"In other news, Kim and Kanye named their baby, Dr. Oz says that cucumbers cure the yaws, the sun will flip upside down within a few weeks, and the Hawks beat the Canucks 3-2 in overtime. We'll be right back..."

Call us all Ishmael: "In our decline, hatred becomes our primary lust, our highest form of patriotism and a form of eroticism. We are made supine by hatred and fear. We deploy vast resources to hunt down jihadists and terrorists, real and phantom. We destroy our civil society in the name of a war on terror. We persecute those, from Julian Assange to Bradley Manning to Edward Snowden, who expose the dark machinations of power. We believe, because we have externalized evil, that we can purify the earth. We are blind to the evil within us. Melville’s description of Ahab is a description of the bankers, corporate boards, politicians, television personalities and generals who through the power of propaganda fill our heads with seductive images of glory and lust for wealth and power. We are consumed with self-induced obsessions that spur us toward self-annihilation."

"Banking should be boring. Savings accounts, checking accounts — the things that you and I rely on every day — should be safe from the sort of high-risk activities that broke our economy."

For a lot of exiting business owners an ESOP makes sense.
What should retiring baby boomers do with the companies they have built up? Sell to their employees.

Happy posthumous birthday to Willie Dixon, with one of his best songs performed by Hubert Dumping and Chester Arthur Burnett (aka Howlin Wolf).

The Wolf really holds up well, along with the Dixon song.

Just like I thought. I'm on the geek side of the slope.
