Cinco de Mayo Cigar

We celebrated Cinco de Mayo with a swine-flu-free Rocky Patel.

Another paragraph from Atlas Shrugged, P. 619:

"Because we didn't work hard enough?"
"Because we worked too hard - and charged too little."
"What do you mean?"
"We never demanded the one payment that the world owed us - and we let our best reward go to the worst of men. The error was made centuries ago ... by every man who fed the world and received no thanks in return. You don't know what is right any longer? Dagny, this in not a battle of material goods. It's a moral crisis, the greatest the world has ever faced and the last. Our age is the climax of centuries of evil. We must put an end to it, once and for all, or perish - we, the men of the mind. It was our own guilt. We produced the wealth of the world - but we let our enemies write its moral code.

UPDATE 5.6 7:30AM:

WSJ Headline - Page 1: Brokers Abandon Wall Street

Paragraph 1:

The number of brokers bolting from Wall Street is on the rise amid slumping markets and diminishing fees, a trend that could augur lasting changes in the way individuals invest.

Nothing to see here...
