Golden Fleece

Working for modern politicians, Jason wouldn't have had to steal much fleece to renew his fleet.  A couple of the ram's nose hairs would probably cover a shiny new trireme.

Courtesy of AFP we learn that  Ben and Barry and all their recent predecessors and current pals have pushed gold through  $1,400 per ounce.

Making those who worked hard and saved their money look like a bunch of stupes. We're on a path to the day when lighting your smoke with a C-note will not be thought remarkable.

I think I'll keep hieing myself to the WalMart to invest a little more in value-added lead, copper, and zinc. Which are, of course, following gold up at $1.14, $3.96, and $1.13. respectively.
