Today is Jule Styne's birthday (he died in 1994). Another album recommendation from the Chairman: Michael Feinstein Sings the Jule Styne Songbook.
I understand why a lot of people detest Feinstein (I like Feinstein, but I can see where his detractors are coming from), but Jule plays a marvelous piano and the bits where he sings are just great.
Here's a clip (RealAudio) of him singing The Guy in the Polka Dotted Tie. And this nutter put up
a nice page of Jule Styne song lyrics.
My heart should be well-schooled
'Cause I've been fooled in the past
And still I fall in love too easily
I fall in love too fast

You can see that the action in CORV is the kind of thing the scanner jumps all over -- explosive trading activity / volume,
massive range expansion, tremendous money flow, manic bid/ask updates. It's hard to miss these kind of plays if you know
what to look for.

A story on the FedEx acquisition of Kinko's,
which mentions UPS's acquisition of Mail Boxes Etc. in March 2001.
When I was in Tennessee last week I went to a UPS store (formerly a Mail Boxes Etc.) to make some photocopies. I botched eight pages of
65 copied, so when I went to pay I said 'I made 57 copies.' The girl said 'OK' and promptly charged me for 65 copies (the copier was
connected to her computer I guess). I laughed and gave her that old line from Ronzo: Trust, but Verify.

An extract, Vengeful Minorities, from Amy Chua's World on Fire.
"... in Iraq, with its complex mix of religious and ethnic groups, popular democracy might produce undesirable results. But that
is not the fault of democracy. If anything, the blame rests with Saddam Hussein's regime which fostered divisions of various
kinds. This does not, however, alter the fact that given the conditions that exist in many postcolonial countries - created
by history, colonialism, divide and rule policies, corruption, autocracy - the combination of laissez-faire capitalism and
unrestrained majority rule can have catastrophic consequences.
