Let's look at two events:

(a) The recall election of a governor -- the first time this has happened in the history of the state.

(b) The regularly scheduled election of a governor -- an event that happens every four years like clockwork.

Of course event (a) is going to result in a hell of a lot more coverage than event (b).

Marty Kaplan was a speech writer for the dullest man in the history of US politics. At Disney, he gave the world "Building Mr. Right". Why do we ever need to hear a word from this well-connected but clueless clown? I never understand his (and his wife's) position as a speaker of wisdom on politics, media or, in her case, dieting.
Ben Stein has an equally varied career in politics and movies, but the Times never calls him.

And, so long as you're at it, why not add that until recently, he was married to Susan Estritch?

i think *everyone* who has *ever* read about warren buffett knows what value investing is. it ain't rocket science. buy and hold, baby.

uh, not exactly alex. More to do with PE ratios, asset value, etc. In any case, you'd be hard pressed to maintain that Buffet has been a pure "value" investor. In any case, I kept trying to find the pony under all of Rutten's s**t and couldn't quite find it. Back to Buffett though. If the Wilson people are behind Buffett, Lowe, and Arnie's silence campaign then they are way overpaid. More likely, this is the Arnold & Maria show, and the results ain't pretty. Kind of like a replay of the Riordan campaign.
