  “Well they call me the breeze… I’m just blowin’ down the road…”       This song probably wasn’t the most popular of the innovative catalog of legendary southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, but it’s quite appropriate for the stock market right now. The first quarter of 2021 ended yesterday with the S & P 500 at an all-time high, the Dow Jones Industrials…

 “Don’t let the door hit you on the way out!” I think that most of us feel the same way about having 2020 in our rearview mirror.

The voters have spoken. What they have said is still up for grabs. As of the writing of this missive, we only know two things for sure: 1.) we’re happy not to see the unending barrage of commercials on TV and social media, and 2.) pollsters are worthless. It seems as though America will have…

“Just the facts ma’am”… these were the signature words of Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday on the 1960’s TV police drama, Dragnet. The role was reprised decades later by Dan Aykroyd in the movie of the same name, but without Webb’s lack of panache. The TV show was remarkable for the fact that Webb…
