Early/Sick/Snowy Weekend

Friday, January 22, 2016

Editor's Note: I'm posting this week's "Weekend Reading" a day early due to illness. Since I caught this from my son, I expect to be better by around Tuesday. But I'm also in the bull's eye of that blizzard the news is making a big fuss over. I have a reserve post in the queue for Monday, but if you don't hear from me on Tuesday, and the Baltimore/DC area is especially paralyzed, you'll have an idea of why.

Weekend Reading

"Whenever you come across a metaphor like wealth effect, I encourage you to ask what is actually happening." -- Keith Weiner, in "The Bull Market in Stocks May Be Done" at SNB & CHF

"[W]hen you hear somebody putting down ego, remember that they are actually attacking reality and self-preservation." -- Michael Hurd, in "The War Against the Self" at The Delaware Wave

"[C]ountless negative emotions and psychological problems can arise because of guilt -- specifically, unearned guilt." -- Michael Hurd, in "'It Must Be Nice' and Other Invitations to Feel Guilty" at The Delaware Coast Press
