  1. You know. Even if I were a betting man, I’m not sure that I would bet that there’s a rational explanation to all of this. And I don’t know anything about these things, but do those sneakers go with the dress?

  2. Wayne,

    The band was pretty casual on Saturday, since they weren’t doing a half-time show. The game was on Thanksgiving Break, so only the local kids were in town — hence the tennies!!

    The tuba players have always worn skirts, not sure why — other than tuba players are kooky!

  3. Several small townships in northern Norway went along with a securities firm’s advice and invested as much as NOK 4 billion in complicated American commercial paper sold by Citibank. They now risk losing it all.

    The township politicians are both embarrassed and angry at the financial advisers who they now claim led them astray. “They think we’re a bunch of small-town fools,” one local mayor told newspaper Dagens Næringsliv. The politicians remain ultimately reponsible, though, and voters aren’t particularly happy as news emerges about what’s become of a large chunk of their public funds.

    Officials in four northern Norwegian townships (Narvik, Rana, Hemnes and Hattfjelldal) went along with an alleged recommendation by Terra Securities to invest a total of NOK 451 million in what they’re now calling “high-risk structured products” offered by Citibank and sold for Citibank by Terra.
