A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

The Man Who Walked Around The World

A wonderful ad for Johnnie Walker whiskey...

I watch, and quickly lose the ad's technical magnificence to the beauty and majesty that fills the frame. And the desire to walk that trail. And, after a long day's walk, sit back with a glass of Johnnie Walker and a few good friends, and enjoy it all.

Ron Paul: Looking for Love

In which Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show, skewers the media for ignoring altogether Ron Paul's candidacy for President...

Now you might agree or disagree with Ron Paul's political notions and positions, you might even wonder abut Paul's seemingly perpetual candidacy for President, but, and as Stewart shows perfectly clearly, Ron Paul deserves the same respect the media accords the other candidates. Factor in his excellent polling results, and the media appears purposefully to ignore Ron Paul. And looks downright foolish (read: childish) in the process.

What do you think?
