    Volt=Edsel?

    Friday, January 6th, 2012

    No, it’s worse. At least taxpayers weren’t on the hook for the Edsel. The Volt, an expensive toy electric car for greeniacs, actors and assorted poseurs, has been recalled. I guess there won’t be any campaign commercials about how wonderful electric cars are going to end our dependence on foreign oil.

    Least Surprising Headline of the Day

    Sunday, August 14th, 2011

    Narcissists rise to the top because people mistake their confidence and authority for leadership qualities.

    From this study. I was kind of amazed by how this worked in the Army — he who had the most bluster seemed to earn the most respect and those who considered before acting were penalized specifically for doing so. But [...]

    The Nissan Leaf: The New Edsel

    Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

    In my Sunday column, a look at the details behind the coal-powered, short-ranging, high-cost, heavily-subsidized Nissan Leaf and how it symbolizes the folly of the administration’s energy policy.

    Agita Eagerly Awaited

    Wednesday, May 19th, 2010

    The movie biz takes yet another crack at explaining the great Wall Street mishegoss of 2008 with Charles Ferguson’s upcoming fall release “Inside Job,” which my colleague Lou has seen at Cannes and which he says is a far better indictment than Michael Moore’s “Capitalism: A Love Story” and which he promises will “give conservatives [...]

    Monopoly the Movie

    Monday, April 26th, 2010

    Via Big Hollywood, Director Ridley Scott promises the Hasbro-branded big-screen adaptation of “Monopoly” will be “a nightmare of greed….a blood bath….a comedy.” Eh? It sounds like a tough assignment, making a movie out of a game in order to sell more games. By the way, I was a genius at Monopoly: The secret is, buy [...]

    VAT Chance

    Sunday, April 25th, 2010

    Matt Welch has a superb op-ed in today’s Post about how, as American bureaucrats muse about instituting a Value-Added Tax and other Europhile measures, Europe inches back toward less government centralization.

    NYT Health Care Blogger Sits on Health Boards

    Friday, April 16th, 2010

    You have to love the NYT Picker, the unofficial New York Times watchdog site. Today they expose how a key Times writer on health-care issues earns more than $500,000 a year from the industry and holds more than $5 million in stock. He even sits on health-company boards.

    Harvard Hottie Inspired Michael Lewis Book

    Friday, April 9th, 2010

    Speaking of cha-ching meets hubba-hubba, check out this Wall Street Journal story (that ran last month) about a lovely Harvard grad turned Wall Streeter and the thesis that helped inspired Michael Lewis’s book “The Big Short.” Methinks she is going to be all over the media.

    Hot Girls Still Love Wall Street

    Friday, April 9th, 2010

    Love this Wall Street Journal blog post. Color me less than shocked: New York’s comelies are still very interested in banker types. I also love the euphemisms involved: not “Women interested in selling beauty to highest bidders” but “Fashion meets finance.” Fashionable is code for beautiful; finance = rich. The girls involved will, of course, [...]

    “Iron Man 2″ Poised to Best “The Dark Knight”?

    Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

    So argues the LA Times movie blog. Seems like “Iron Man 2″ will probably be on more screens because there aren’t going to be that many April hits and theater owners will gladly sweep away minor films for “IM2.” On the other hand, the kids were out of school for “TDK.” But kiddie ticket prices [...]
