    Good write-up, thanks for putting them on my radar for potential dining out but not investing in.

  • Retail watch: Sales hard to ring up outside of auto and healthcare [View news story]
    I've been seeing very slight gains in sales y-o-y in my retail business. Unfortunately, they seem to be the result of price increases and are more than offset by increases in my fixed costs.

  • Kerry: International support growing for action against Syria [View news story]
    So ironic that John Kerry is complicit in fomenting an Islamist version of Vietnam. "I was against war before I was for it."

  • August Nonfarm Payrolls misses estimates [View news story]
    Is it any different in Paris? How's job creation in Lyon or Marseilles, for that matter? What kind of pressure is the immigrant population applying on social services and the employment picture? Are those not "bad numbers" in themselves?

  • Ford Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Program Achieves Record 39 Percent Growth; Improves Residuals, Dealer Profits [View article]
    Judging from your other posts, it seems you don't much like Ford. Assuming your figures are accurate about pre-owned inventory at Ford dealers, I would point out that they are not by definition included in the new certified pre-owned program, which seems to me well timed to capitalize on the brand's improved status since the GM sellout.

    BTW, I have a 2008 Ford-built sedan bought at a good price two years ago when coming off lease from a dealer in an enterprise zone. I drove it 4,000 miles on the highways this summer and it is the best car I've ever owned.

  • Obama to seek Congressional approval on Syria strikes: Clarity or more uncertainty? [View news story]
    The good news is that Samantha Power is not more powerful than the polling data.

  • 3 Kinds Of Statistics: Lies, Guesses And Grand Illusions [View article]
    This "man of system," Smith said, is "apt to be very wise in his own conceit." Sage observation then, and still so today. The ruminations in A.J. Nock's "Our Enemy, the State" are holding up pretty well also.

    Uh-huh, right after the Department of Education, the Department of Labor, and the Department of the Interior. And long, long after Depardieu gets sick of living in Belgium.

  • SocGen: Brent crude could surge to $150/bbl if Syria conflict spreads [View news story]
    It's a good thing Samantha Power is back from vacation and Barry had time to brief Judy Woodrfuff and Gwen Ifill this afternoon. What difference, at this point, does it make what Congress has to say?
