New The fun part of oil....
is how much it's used in Agriculture now. :-)
New And vice-versa. :-/
New The Wall Street Journal came out against ethanol . . .
. . this morning (12-NOV-07 editorial page) and mentioned resistance to ethanol subsidies in both houses of the legislature (which, unfortunately, haven't gotten together one this yet).

They also mention that Texas oilmen are buying up water rights so they can pump water and charge corn growers for it since they're all running out of water.

I repeat what I've been saying all along - converting high grade food into motor fuel is total idiocy.

New And why does **anyone** believe anything ...
... in the Wall St. Urinal (a.k.a. Fox Bizness) these days?

"It's hard for me, you know, living in this beautiful White House, to give you a firsthand assessment."
George W. Bush, when asked if he believed Iraq was in a state of civil war (Newsweek, 26 Feb 07)
New It tells you what the Capitalist Running Dogs are . . .
. . thinking this week. They are, after all, the ones with the money, so what they think is going to impact you.

Fox doesn't seem to have had much (if any) impact yet, except to declare the on-line service will be free. Murdock wants 10 million users instead of 1 million.

New Rather beg to differ
Fox Bizness's editorials are even more Right-wing fanatical bizniss-uber-alles that they were pre-Murdoch. Before, they were predictably conservative. Now they are waaaayyy over the top whacked.

YMMV

New Can't agree to that
there were some right-wing editorials (prior to the buyout) that made Murdock look leftish.

Even [link|http://www.huffingtonpost.com/blake-fleetwood/bill-clinton-the-wal_b_59294.html|Bill Clinton] agreed.
New A guy where I worked many years ago . . .
. . had a subscription to Barron's (also published by Dow Jones). I called it "Robber Barron's". It was so far over the right wing wall it made the WSJ look like a Commie propaganda rag.

New Barron's sample.
Today's piece in Barron's Up & Down Wall Street:
The World's two biggest jackasses -- and, believe us, given the enormous population of that particular species, there was some very stiff competition to earn that coveted ranking -- are Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinjad, respectively but not respectably, the presidents of Venezuela and Iran (you'd run, too, if Mahmoud was you president.)

Hugo, as befits his name, is beefy; Mahmoud can't find a suit small enough to fit him. Hugo's clean shaven, perhaps the better to show off his significant jowls. Mahmoud to his credit has managed to achieve the impossible: cultivate a permanent five-day beard. In an earlier incarnation, they might have made it as one of those numerous pairs of not-very-comical comics on the old burlesque (hardly the least of reasons burlesque went belly up)

Reads like Ashton with Coulter virus infection! :)

I happen to have a Barron's subscription. Ordinarily, I would not read it. But, my wife subscribed to Smart Money, another Dow Jones publication, and a year's worth of Barron's was available for one dollar! Two cents a week to have it mailed to me seems about right. Their positive or negative mention about a company often "moves the market" for that company on the following Monday.
