Does anyone really care about the MLB All Star Game? Half of the players selected don't play. It is a farce. Derek Jeter, Mr. 3000 hits, is too tired to make the trip. The All Star game is supposed to be for the FANS! Apparently these pro athletes don't get... Continue reading

via www.marketwatch.com I wanted to post this article from Marketwatch.com. It talks about a slew of economic indicators that will make the most savy financial dork cringe.
