The Wilder View

The most closely followed headlines. Tiger?

I kind of chuckled when I say this chart from the Pew Research Center for People and the Press:

RW: I am impressed that (1) 11% of respondents follow golf in general, and (2) 3% followed it more closely that the financial, housing, and economic crisis. Honestly, it is great to have some sideline commentary that is not predicting the end of the world as we know it.

“Meet John Doe” A Frank Capra movie.See it. Rent it. There will be no other explanation needed. Your Wall Street blues are being coordinated by the people who are making major money off of you.See also “On the Waterfront”. Brando personifies our pain and conflict of interest.Well, while you are at it… Oliver Stone had a good Wall Street movie too.Hmm. “Network”. Now that explains everything. “I’m mad as hell.”Are you Right, Left, or correct. About 8 hours of your time in front of the boob tube. But you do that anyway… checking… checking… (I won’t give you the next… checking). Bloomberg’s monitors are enticing, second by second.Do your own research.“I am not gonna take it anymore”Robert Gerard
