    Hope Ron Jeremy pulls through. Can we stand losing him and our retirements? America holds its collective breath.

    Cigar consumers of the world, unite ! I’m glad to see CG smoking a decent sticks, although I prefer my Cuban Cohiba, and. when lacking, a good Partagas.

    This bond rotation theme, betting on rising interest rates, is betting against the Fed. Good idea when it comes to bonds, bad idea when it comes to stocks?

    Rising rates will choke of any housing recovery, and make borrowing cost more for everyone. Hard to see why this is bullish for stocks.

    20th century jazz from the 20s-late 80s really is an amazing evolution. I had a great gig back in the 1971.The one-night-only band I was hired to play tenor sax/flute/clarinet with produced an amazing book of original arrangements from several of the prominent jazz bands of the 1920s-late 1930s. Ellington, Basie, Goodman (my favorite), Bix, etc. What fun! A living museum of jazz classics. And an appreciate audience to boot.

    The mention of Ellington via BR and catman brought back a wonderful memory…..

    Teen who performed at Obama inaugural events shot dead

    The NRA’s right. If you give every entertainer a gun, this wouldn’t happen, especially the young girls. It’s just science.
