Re: A place to talk about random things....

In my 'notifications' section, home page with the bell- top right, I have a '2' next to the bell. When I checked, there are two people who are not forum members with irrelevant info. I usually ignore 'notification' and I did not click/open either one. How did these 2 notifications get to me? Thanks.

Re: Baseball?

Vinny,

I overlooked your starting in 1994 stipulation. My apologies.

I give full credit to Buck Showalter and Gene Michael for what is called the Joe Torre Yankees.

Re: Baseball?

I initially think of Dan Topping & Del Webb. These 2 owners were referenced in a book whose title eludes me but this approximates: Yankee Dynasty, 1949-1964: When rooting for the Yankees was like rooting for US Steel. There were the 2 colonels, Ruppert and Houston. They bought the club in 1913. Beca...

Re: Baseball?

Talking baseball trades on an avatar thread! Bad decorum? Branch Rickey, I believe, once said a trade needed 2 years to see who benefited. Rickey also said "luck is the residue of design." Something here for the software engineers? As a Yankee fan, Jay Buhner gives me another reason to think Steinbr...

Re: Trains?

Denver to Sacramento- and the return were fun. We just got Denver to Salt Lake City cancelled. We would be in Denver today. A good Amtrak route is worth it and we were not horribly delayed. There are views not seen from a car. Europe trains are great, too. Investing? When the Interstate highways par...

Re: Atlas Shrugged Book

Would the Well-Read on this forum provide lists of must-read books? Actually, not really a question.

Let's assume we've all read Craig and Jim's book.

Having gone through Harry Browne, Jean Shepherd (The Christmas Story guy), Twain, Michener, Uris, Wouk, and Steinbeck, I need more.

Thanks.

Re: Atlas Shrugged Book

I read 30+ pages per night for over 30 night. Worth it. "Fountain Head" is ok. Gary Cooper did the movie.

I used the same approach to Shogun but the book wasn't for me. I guess I should appreciate Shogun more for its possibilities in historical fiction.

You might send a PM to I Shrugged.

Re: The Bond Dream Room

Maybe this current interest rate increase leads to a significant increase in the prices of LTTs. This could be the first swoon in one of Harry's 4 categories for me... but maybe not. This ain't dull.

Re: The Bond Dream Room

Could somebody or many of you comment on the bond structure collapsing. All those unpaid bonds and interest payments missed might manifest as deflation. Kinda reminds me of 1929-1932. Interest rates did spike in 1930 as bankers only wanted to lend to the best borrowers; the bankers then found out th...

Guys, I love reading about and discussing the topic of U.S. health care, too, but don’t we have other existing threads for it?
Agreed.
