An Unpleasantness

Years ago, Larry Munson---who died recently---used to sit in front of a teletype machine and try to conjure up for his radio audience the color of an eyewitness account of Nashville Vols' baseball games from the meager data coming in over the wire after each inning.

I think about Munson as I sit here each day, watching the numbers on my Google Finance portfolio screen change from second to second.  From that, I try to come up with something interesting to say that will summarize the day's progress or retreat. I'm just like Munson, I think---all I need is an audience.

Today was unpleasant all around, with the only bit of cheer being provided by DE, which resisted the trend with a .26% rise.
