It’s one of those times where I’ve said all I’ve got to say! So I’ll just bug out and leave you with one of my all-time favorite comedy shows from when I was a kid. Enjoy! (And rest in peace, Robin)
Elizabeth Swaney, who hails from Palo Alto, is getting some unintended publicity for being pretty much the lamest Winter Olympian ever. Her participation in the Olympics at the half pipe is seriously the one and only one I could personally match. Enjoy the leisurely run!

After careful consideration, I have decided selling my XLI puts early today was an error. Heh.
In any event, I’m still heavily short, and my departure from bond puts on Friday DID make sense. What we are witnessing is extraordinary. Congratulations to my beloved Slopers, many of whom I suspect are having superb days. We richly deserve this.

As a child of the 80s, I have a great fondness for the music of that era (most particularly around 1982-1987).
