Comparing Alternative Investments

Dan Wetzel, a Yahoo sports writer, on gambling and college football:

"Now, we aren’t advocating the good folks in Nevada – the only folks that gamble on college football, of course – might consider these past results a predictor of future ones. If you’re crazy enough to wager on the performances on college kids, that’s your issue.

Fortunately in the other 49 states the government prohibits people putting money into a system with wild fluctuations, unpredictable results and the very real possibility that underhandedness and dishonesty have fixed the outcome.

Politicians know the stock market is a much safer and honest place for retirement funds."

HAH!!

For Ms Carpet:

You better believe we respect the Mississippi Mudflap!


I'm his friend...

Maybe the old man is just slurring his speech, but I swear John McCain just called his opponent "Sinner Obama." Subliminal message there? I guess if you got really excited and didn't enunciate properly senator could become sinner (try saying senator as fast as you can--you'll see), but I think it was just a well placed attack!!! I've got to give credit to the McCain camp on this one...very tricky!!
