I’m going to talk about…, well, I don’t know yet. Probably the election aftermath. Maybe something else.
7:00 as always.
Addendum: Okay, probably this!
Seriously, any of you terrorist marijuana growers thinking about blowing up the Shasta Dam?! Well you had just better forget about it because no fewer than 20 federal agencies are ready for you!

Unemployment may be hovering at 10 percent as construction is at all time lows and foreclosures are rampant, but Wall Street had its fourth best year in profits. Not nearly as well as they did last year mind you, but they did very well.
