No need to get so politically correct about it. Just keep it the way it was.

Reserve seen continuing easy credit policy pursued since start of year. Some concern that increased reserve credit “will flow into speculative channels,” but this doesn’t seem to have happened much yet.” – news from 1930

The date of the paper was actually August 25th, a Monday. Perhaps it was published in the afternoon and was referring to that day’s trading.

But regardless of that particular, I think the spirit of the piece is correct. The Dow did recover significantly in 1930, only to fall again later.

The Dow didn’t do anything that day, let alone reach a new high for the year.

I don’t feel guilty. And I couldn’t care less if it makes me more productive.

I jumped out of one of those back in ’98 or so, it was like walking inside a school bus that had two HUGE jet engines on the sides. (You can see one of the engines there just under the rear rotor.)

They are, I believe, the fastest helicopters in current US Army inventory, unless the Army still has the old Hughes 500s around (the Magnum P.I. helicopter — gosh, I’m old).

It usually takes me about 10 minutes to scan them and read most of them cursorily.

You won’t hurt my feelings and I’ll still read it.

Everyone knows there are little kids on top of the helicopter swinging around a flashlight on the end of a rope.

It’s just time lapse photography… from the same stage as the “supposed” moon landing!
