Things I Know

  • Genealogists have discovered that America’’s first African-American President also has enough Irish blood to make him three-point-something percent Irish.  That’’s good enough for me, so Happy Saint Patrick’’s Day President O’’Bama.

  • Howard Hughes was eccentric.  I’’m crazy.  A big factor in locating the boundary between eccentric and crazy is how much money you have.  I’’ll always be crazy.

  • News item:  admitted swindler Bernard Madoff was sent to jail until he’s sentenced for his multi-billion Ponzi scheme.  His lawyers are appealing and trying to spring him.  If he doesn’t want to be in jail, he shouldn’’t have pleaded guilty and he shouldn’’t have done it either.

  • Until the market rose several days in a row last week, you could buy a share of stock in the company that owns Citibank for less money than the bank charges a non-customer to use its ATM’s. 

  • I’m glad I don’’t have one of those new iPod shuffles.  It’’s so small I’’d probably lose it the first day.

  • I have a granite paving block in my office.  You can call it a Belgian block or a cobblestone if you like.  It’’s a productivity tool.  On those days when I’’m at work and  need to beat my head against a stone wall, I have a mini-wall right in my office so I don’t have to run around the building to find the stone wall with  the shortest line.
