Just another day in the market... volume was pathetic, but the ag names and coal stocks jolted around like innocent students getting tasered by the campus police.

Indeed, these are strange times.

I didn't listen to CNBC all day but did have the pleasure to hear Rick Santelli smack down Steve Liesman. Liesman was saying that the credit spreads should have never widened as much as they did and Santelli was like, (I'm paraphrasing here) "Steve, you're a big dick. For 6 years companies acted like crackheads, so spreads should have widened... wake the fuck up!"

It was great.

Anyway, it was a mixed day for the VO. We traded only 1.25 billion today on the NYSE, so that never helps. Still, Evolution managed to make more cake.

No word from Timmay. I'm sure he's out there hamming it up for some camera somewhere, unconcerned that I'm slowly damaging his sparkling reputation via the VO.

Friday afternoon bonus! Exclusive footage of Ainkurn playing in the woods with some friends!

pete,

I like the way they're like, "and some bloggers work for as little as $1000 a month!"

Ha, if only!

Meanwhile, I think the trading will kill me off way before the blogging does.

Thanks for the good find.
