Comments: I Want To Believe

Well, if GE goes under, SNL goes under too, because GE owns NBC. Now THAT would be funny.

This situation is similar in significant ways to what happened to Westinghouse, once a very proud example of American excellence in technology and manufacturing. When that company vanished it harmed a lot of people in Pittsburgh - all because the company CEO couldn't or wouldn't do simple math. Terrific fucking shame.

On the other hand, this adds to my desire to castrate investment bankers with a sharpened slide rule.

Not related to GE/SNL, but I wanted to pass on a couple of Bio Char links before I forget about them.
