Cold And Rainy

Heavy heavy downpour in Manhattan at 5:30 this morning.

Oh, and did I mention the rain is ice cold?

I feel like I just walked through a car wash, minus the suds.

It must really suck to be in Zucchini Park right now…

    How soon until there’s an influenza outbreak among the great unwashed?

    Cholera with all the, er, untreated waste.

    And TB as well.

    They won’t last if it’s wet and cold. Pray for frost on the pumpkin.

    A letter from Goldman Sachs:

    Dear Investor:

    Up until now, Goldman Sachs has been silent on the subject of the protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street. That does not mean, however, that it has not been very much on our minds. As thousands have gathered in Lower Manhattan, passionately expressing their deep discontent with the status quo, we have taken note of these protests. And we have asked ourselves this question:

    How can we make money off them?

    The answer is the newly launched Goldman Sachs Global Rage Fund, whose investment objective is to monetize the Occupy Wall Street protests as they spread around the world. At Goldman, we recognize that the capitalist system as we know it is circling the drain – but there’s plenty of money to be made on the way down.

    The Rage Fund will seek out opportunities to invest in products that are poised to benefit from the spreading protests, from police batons and barricades to stun guns and forehead bandages. Furthermore, as clashes between police and protesters turn ever more violent, we are making significant bets on companies that manufacture replacements for broken windows and overturned cars, as well as the raw materials necessary for the construction and incineration of effigies.

    It would be tempting, at a time like this, to say “Let them eat cake.” But at Goldman, we are actively seeking to corner the market in cake futures. We project that through our aggressive market manipulation, the price of a piece of cake will quadruple by the end of 2011.

    Please contact your Goldman representative for a full prospectus. As the world descends into a Darwinian free-for-all, the Goldman Sachs Rage Fund is a great way to tell the protesters, “Occupy this.” We haven’t felt so good about something we’ve sold since our souls.

    LOL, Syd B. Do you know if they’re also starting a Rage Fund with 0-tax liability? or is that only open to select investors?

    Well, they DID stink to high heaven. Apparently, someone up there just decided to be proactive.
