I have had a couple of people mention problems with Disqus (my comment program). With hackers P.O.’ed over Wikileaks, I’m not sure that there is much I can do about it. I have talked to my computer gurus and they are looking into it. Thanks for everyone’s patience.
Update: I think that the comment problem is fixed.
Tuesday morning news Roundup
(My blog is acting a little funny. I’ll see if I can get the computer gurus to look at it.)
- President Bush pardoned 14 people yesterday. He has been extremely stingy with the pardons. What makes these 14 people so special?
- Financial guru Allan Sloan is handing out this year’s turkeys. The Federal Reserve gets a turkey for allowing Lehman Brothers to go into bankruptcy. Yahoo gets a turkey for telling Microsoft “thanks but no thanks.” Sloan also includes Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson’s turnaround. This is a really good article.
Check it out.
- What about the men who crafted the CitiGroup bailout deal…Henry Paulson, Robert Rubin and Timothy Geithner? I have to wonder why do all these bailouts happen on a Saturday or Sunday?
- A “new” study suggests some cancers can just simply disappear…not really news, per se.
- Allen Colmes is leaving Hannity and Colmes. Thank god. No liberal should be trapped anywhere near Sean Hannity.
- Nevada’s Lt. Governor Brian Krolicki believes that he is going to be indicted but claims that it is only for political reasons. We’ll see.
- Fareed Zararia believes that those of us Americans under the age of 60 wanted to a part of history. Maybe there is some legitimate point there, but I certainly don’t remember sitting up at night thinking that I wanted to be a part of some historic event. Even if I were to ponder something so crazy, this financial crisis is for the birds. Yes, this is a once in a generation event, but not one anyone sane would have conjured up intentionally. I would be very happy to skip this and relive the landing on the moon. 😉
