Kenny is the unlucky one and dies a different way each episode. He is poor and lives in a run-down shack with his violent and drunken family. He is muffled when he speaks, and it's a good thing considering what he says is usually pretty filthy.
Sinclair says buy calls on gold and puts on treasuries. Leave the shorts alone until Kenny confirms the top. (whoever the hell Kenny is)

SCIENTISTS HAD WARNED OF OVERLOADING BY POWERTRADING RIVERBOATERS
NEW YORK - Scientists and engineers with the National Research Council warned the White House and Congress about the vulnerability of the power grid as recently as November, saying nationwide weaknesses needed to be repaired - and fast.
Little has been done, despite a chorus of experts who've pushed since Sept. 11 to fix a grid that's riddled with threadbare links and plagued by chronic shortages.
"After the persistent stock market rallies since Sept. 11, PowerTrading has overwhelmed the grid" said Paul Gilbert, a member of the National Academy of Engineering, which worked on the report for the National Research Council.
Apparently, rapid fire pointing, clicking, and refreshing by millions of stock, commodity, and futures traders has overpowered the grid capacity.
"Technology should be developed to allow Futures Trading Robots to work automatically to allow Arena Participants to live a normal life and participate the 2nd half hockey stick recovery" the report recommended. The report's authors shared their findings and recommendations with the White House and congressional committees last December, during the end of year Blowoff Top, Gilbert said.
"It's something that's been coming I think for the past 3 years," said Mel Olken, editor-in-chief of IEEE Power & Energy Magazine, which is published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
"Stock market indices are within a hairsbreadth of breaking out to new highs", says Richard Russell, author of the Dow Theory Letters. "Traders are now hyperactive with the refresh button, so as to not miss the breakout day."
In March, the nonprofit group that operates New York State's high-voltage electric transmission system reported that nine out of 10 households had excessive trading volumes, as speculators jumped on the first big rally day by pointing and clicking at a feverish pitch. The undersea cable between Connecticut and Long Island, sat idled by political wrangling until April - was finally turned on by order of the U.S. Department of Energy, said Carol Murphy, spokeswoman for the New York Independent System Operator.
"The stock market is the economy, therefore it is imperative that the grid be modernized to support the trading public," Bush said. "We've got an antiquated system."

N.E.My son lives in Lansing, U of M was effected by the power outage
I know the power was out at the U of M as of 4:15 yesterday, but consider the following:
To the best of my knowledge, their consumer sentiment survey is only designed to produce a single number from 1 to 100 which acts as a measuring post...just a simple number like 73 or 84 for example.
While I really don't know the mechanics of how these results are derived, I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't know exactly what that number was that they were planning to announce this morning - as of 4 p.m. yesterday.
I could certainly be mistaken, but I never heard them say that the numbers were unavailable or yet to be tabulated, all I heard them say was that the results were being delayed until Tuesday. Just sounds damn suspicious to me.

Along with the michigander sentiment on Tues. don't forget the building permits and housing starts #'s are on Tues. Will be very interesting since Doc's mogauge #'s have dropped off the chart. I picked up 100 QQQ sept puts today. And am seriously thinking of picking up 10-20 Mar HGX housing index puts on Monday.

I agree with you completely Meta. DROOY has been coiling for a blastoff for quite some time, CDE as well. I've been adding to DROOY since $2.25 and will keep adding on the way up. I clearly don't have enough CDE. WHT has been makin' me nervous lately. Just a feeling. I would appreciate your thoughts.
BGO is still in the early stages and has plenty of room to run. IMHO.

Anyone think the additional property taxes in my POS state will lead to a little INFLATION?
Inflation in the worlds 5th largest economy shouldn't be too bad for gold prices.
