Let’s start a pool: At what point in the future will General Motors
(GM) ignominiously join Eastman Kodak (EK), Woolworth and others and
get tossed out of he Dow Jones Industrials? And, who will replace them?
I am betting this happens within 5 years, and perhaps even within 3.
As to the replacement, I might have said Google (GOOG) — but I
assume the DJ Editors learned their lesson top ticking Microsoft (MSFT)
and Intel (INTC). Instead, my bet will be Cisco (CSCO).
Did I say three – five years? Let’s change that to 12-24 months and I still think its Cisco over Google . . .
Very interesting video from SquawkBox Wednesday morning — I thought Doug Dachille of First Principles Capital Management did a nice job and Gary Kaminsky Neuberger Berman is always solid.
This was not Joe Kernan’s finest interview . . . especially later in the interview.
Part II is here:
HBO will air Carlin’s most recent live comedy special, "It’s Bad for Ya," at 9 p.m. Friday, June 27.
Tonight and tomorrow, HBO2 will air 11 of those earlier shows:

9:00pm George Carlin Again! (1978)
11:00pm Carlin at Carnegie (1983)

Also, this weekend, NBC will be running the very first ever 1975 Saturday Night Live, hosted by none other than George Carlin. Its a must TiVo show.
Those of you who may not be all that familiar with Carlin’s earlier
works should especially catch the 1970′s and 80′s work. Its probably
tame compared to what you are used to today, but Carlin was groundbreaking. Most modern comics owe a huge debt to Carlin.
For those of you without HBO, there’s always the complete set: All My Stuff
George Carlin (1937 – 2008)
