The Biz of the Biz

I admit I've been having fun following the business news lately in part because it's provided a distraction from the presidential primary, which I hate. But aside from its value as a distraction its been an interesting education. Business news is probably even more absurd than our political news. It's hard to imagine how Fox Business News could get any more bizarrely right wing than CNBC, though that's obviously its aim. That isn't to say there are no good business reporters - of course there are - just that the chatter overwhelms the journalism.

More seriously, I really can't see how Big Shitpile manages to get the roses to bloom. Fun times ahead.
