Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Money Mysteries Vista and Onion Radio News

To paraphrase the bible "The Fed moves in mysterious ways its wonders to perform."

Well at least it does according to Doyle Redland (pictured left) of Onion Radio News (you'll need sound on).

Meanwhile here's how Onion reported the launch of Micro$oft Vista.

Interesting how things turn out and reminds me of an interview with the late Screaming Lord Sutch. The famous rock 'n' roll singer and regular candidate at elections (latterly for the Monster Raving Loony Party) stood for parliament many times starting in the 1960s. In his early days he had a six-point programme, all of which seemed outrageous at the time. He was proud, twenty-five years later to report that five of the points were now law.
