What's Next?

Global Warming?  You must be kidding?  We were greeted with 2" of snow this morning after having record highs this past week.  More snow to come with the temperatures to match.  Hey Al, you sick twisted moron!  That's snow out there, not a heat wave melting the tires off of my truck!!

Next on the list is that Kirk Kerkorian is bidding on Chrysler.  A surprise to say the least.  What's even more interesting is that he would give the Unions, employees, and the management the chance to own part of the company.  Good move on his part - if you own part of the company you work for, you tend to have that personal stake & pride in what you do.  No word on if the Board is seriously considering this offer (which is better for the employees than an investment firm buying the company).  But we will still have to wait on pins and needles for the outcome of this version of "Deal or No Deal."

But is there any justice either?  Ford is paying their CEO $28 Million for four months of work.  Considering that the company lost 12.7 billion in 2006 and workers are getting less than a $1000 bonus, I think this is a little bit excessive.  Of course, tell that to all of the employees let go from the company who got the shaft instead. 

On a happier note, the British sailors are home.  What the aftershocks will be after this latest incident with the Iranians is anyone's guess.

Finally, the Masters are being played in Augusta this weekend.  I plan on watching the final round (too much other stuff to watch everything).
