Stanley Kubrick, who, at the age of 34, produced,
directed, and co-wrote the screenplay of the classic black
comedy, "Dr. Strangelove", a film that gave cinematic
life to the character of General Jack D. Ripper, died
today in his home in St. Albans north of London. He was
70 years old.
Yo Flip. I got a real kick out of your post that
suggested I open a checking account in HK. I do not share
the same fears as what's her name about longer
sentences being a benefit to investors. However, I do like
sensible mandatory minimums such as the ones I mentioned
earlier that have just been established in Florida. Man,
I just heard a news report. Sorry for this OT
comment. W. Jefferson Slickmeister (along with others) is
going to strike Yugo. As we say in the South, we are
"fixing" to lose some boys. G
I did not mean to hurt you; just to continue
driving the message, that you all, great supporters of
DOC and Co., were had.
As far as Billy Joel, I
know Billy Joel, I like Billy Joel, I even look like
Billy Joel!!! Maybe, I am that woman, from Billy Joel's
One moment you're inviting us for dinner, the
next you're kicking us when we're down. Hope you're
long on PZN so you can "feel our pain", as that
unconvicted criminal said.
Anyway, you remind me of
one of Billy Joel's greatest:
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as
She's nobody's fool
But she can't
She's earned her degree
most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
she's always a woman to me

When I see all the internet stocks screaming up around
me I recall an article written from an Investor. He
had sold all his stock awhile back feeling the stock
prices had gotten way a head of the fundamentals. All
around his friends were making money. He'd reached the
point of feeling stupid and depressed but decided not
to get back in at the end of the article. It was
written in 1928.
I watch this crazy stuff all day,
it's truely amazing. No one plays solitarie on their
computers at work anymore I guess, they pump on caffine and
trade story stocks.
Got you 60 cent dividend and the stock price went
down 60 cents.
No pain, no Gain. As NIC pointed out
rightly (despite that Baker's effect), it is not really
60 cents, 'cause 've gotta-give
25% to Uncle Sam
(probably more like 33%). Add to that 9% that OPCOs keep
for themselves, and it look more like 42% tax
The last time I looked, top corporate tax rate was
35% (Flipper, need your help here; since you have not
decided whether ya is a Lawyer or a Banker, might as well
be an Accountant).
With the Market pushing
10,000, wonder where would a nice GROWTH stock be now:
$30, $40, ..$50. Ops, sorry, I've got to go to cash my
$60 (er) CENTS!!!
