Strong factory orders offset by bad Challenger layoff report.

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

U.S. March factory orders jump 4.3% By Rex Nutting
WASHINGTON (CBS.MW) - Orders for U.S.-made factory goods jumped 4.3 percent in March while shipments from factories increased a record 3.8 percent, the Commerce Department estimated Tuesday. The increase in factory orders was nearly double the 2.2 percent expected by economists surveyed by CBS MarketWatch. It was the largest gain since July 2002. Orders for durable goods in March were revised sharply higher to a 5 percent gain from 3.4 percent estimated a week ago. Orders for nondurable goods increased 3.5 percent. Unfilled orders increased 1.2 percent. Inventories increased a tiny 0.3 percent. Orders for core capital goods increased 4.5 percent, up from the 2.4 percent estimated last week.

Somebody on M2M early this morning reported failure of his TV.

Mine has gone out twice this morning on all channels.

Anybody else notice this?



Sherlock

I'm in Michigan.

It was on as I walked out the door 6:30ish.

They were discussing a vital topic of economic analysis (and I am not making this up):

Who is "cuter," the head of the Bank of England or the head of the ECB?

Audience responses to this question were solicited.

Interesting sidenote:
All the channels this morning are showing stuff in Afghanistan.
Tell me that this wasn't scripted!

Things are too hot in Iraq, so we need to divert the sheeple's attention.

I don't think these a**holes have any ideas what winning hearts and minds
actually takes. 

Sorry for the rant...


Sherlock
