First, you log in to the video.

Then you realize:  “Wow, Weird Al dressed up like Glenn!!”

Turkey orders to Black Sea S2006

Moscow’s afraid of a resurgent Turkey.

And well they should be.  Unlike the assholes running the Kremlin, Turkey actually has a functional economy and government supporting its goals…

The moment we finalize all these projects, the total look of the area will be radically changed. — Ilham Aliyev, President of Azerbaijan

You’re darned tooting it will.  And it could hardly be worse than having the area dominated by “Zaire with permafrost.”


By the way, I have been meaning to wish you good luck in your endeavors.


Yeah, buddy, I’m sure I can find a red swingline stapler somewhere…

In my endeavors.

Yeah, because to paraphrase a friend of mine:

Yuppies don’t have friends; yuppies have contacts.

Black and White vs Grey meets the Federal Funds Rate

Some discussion lately about whether questions are “shades of grey,” like a typical divorce, or whether they’re “black and white” like the recent Oregon-OU “bad call.”

IMHO, all questions are black-and-white.  It’s just a matter of how many details you are able to perceive.


 So, the ten-year rate is 4.60%, and the Funds rate ramains stable now at 5.25%.

We have a 65-point inverted yield curve, and nobody’s saying a damn thing about it.

Is it lagging details about how the Fed has calculated interest vis-a-vis energy prices?

Is the market trying to tell us something about the overheated housing market’s expected “landing?”

Or is it something else?

It’s “shades of grey” to me:  I can’t make out the fine details.  Can you? 

If you can, I am all ears.
