    What was most outrageous event in 2012

    a. Vince Van Patten a commentator on the World Poker Tour when asked for his opinion about the players at the final table at a WPT event and who in that group was favored to win repllied "the field is more wide opened than a Kardashian sister on a Saturday night",

    b. The NHL strike that threatens once again to create to cancel an entire season. Billionaries vs millionaires. Clash of the titans

    c. Facebook's IPO price at $ 38.00 a share this past May.

    Answer "C"!

    The snake oil salesman of the 19th century, selling that magic elixer that cures all ailments were honest and respectable buisnessmen compared to the Wall Street "tycoons" who priced Farcebook's IPO at $38.00

    I would like to comment on Zuck's gift of Farcebook's stock earlier this month to the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. Just how much of a tax benefit will the Zuck's receive this year (and in 2013 and beyond if applicable) by donating "this stock"???
    Only Ms Zuck's hairdresser (excuse me the Zuck's tax advisors) know for sure. And we scratch our heads and wonder why this country is broke??????

    Happy 2013, and let us pray that none of us fall off the "cliff". (not even the Zuck's because I am rooting for Ms. Zuck to one day have more shoes in her wardrobe than Imelda Marcos)
