Back in March of this year, when the WSJ began blogging, I offered some unsolicited advice (WSJ Joins the Blogging Crowd).  Including amongst several other  tidbits of counsel was these bon mots: Free the blogs.

It turns out they are doing just that — at least with Marketbeat, their blog on "market-moving news and analyzing interesting trends and numbers."

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Well, Meesta Economista…

    It looks like we’re the only two peckerwoods to show up tonight, so let’s at least entertain each other.

    Just saw Brian Williams (NBC anchor) tell Eisner that he didn’t tell his wife of (a number of;) years who he voted for.

    You belive that?
