You want to know what made me just shake my head this week?
Citigroup Corporation to purchase $50 million dollar jet. Now it is reported that they canceled the deal. Why? Because the press found out, and apparently people cried foul. Don’t trust that it’s not just on layaway and it will resurface.
Woman gives birth to 8! Country responds with ahhhh’s. Then it’s revealed that this “single” mom has six more kids at home. Well, it’s not really her home; she lives with her mom and dad. Her dad, the grandpa is on his way back to Iraq to work and send home dinars. She had the embryos implanted. Come on, who isn’t shaking their heads over this one!
And let’s not forgot former Merrill Lynch CEO John Thain, who just resigned. Can’t image why he would leave. Come on all he did was not disclose more quickly Merrill's $15.3 billion in losses for the fourth quarter. Asked for a $10 million bonus for himself and paid Merrill Lynch employees $4 billion in bonuses, normally given in January, in December, before Bank of America closed on the acquisition. And yes, his redecorating skills of spending $1.2 million a year ago to renovate his office and three other rooms, including an $87,000 rug and a $35,000 commode.
A local person, who admits to murdering another human being, finds it necessary to sling vulgarities at the victim’s family.
Yes, my head is a bit weary.
