« Tonight at KGB: 2nd Annual Post-AWP Semi-Open Mic Contest | Main | Late News from Poland (on O'Hara, Koch, and the NY School) [by Angela Ball] »

Phil, You forgot hot spot N. Korea. But you're wrong about something else, too. Everyone can and does blame everything on Israel.

Did Philip Roth really say these things or is this satirical? Please clarify.

There is a chance of our reaching a market top soon after the Fed begins tapering in earnest. Of course we won't know until after the fact. Would Mr. Roth, who blithely quotes the old adage ("sell in May and go away") suggest an alternative place to park your money at a time of unprecedently low interest rates?

Phil has always seemed sensible to me, and surely panic selling is never in the investor's best interest. But I am sure that he would agree that in the case of a negative event, such as Russian takeover of the Crimea or trouble in bond market, all bets are off.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
